Everyone loves Keanu Reeves, but Warner Bros. may have taken things too far. The studio announced today that Matrix 4 would be debuting on May 21, 2021, but there’s a small “problem”: that happens to be the exact same release date as John Wick 4, which also stars Reeves. How much Keanu Reeves is too much? We’ll find out next spring, assuming that Lionsgate and WB maintain their dates.
…we would see a fascinating scenario play out where audiences may have to pick between which Keanu Reeves franchise to support opening weekend. This could bring some great insight into which fourth movie audiences really want to see more, but it would undoubtedly hurt both films too. Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 would wind up splitting the audience instead of each getting the majority of it by releasing at different times.
