The fourth installment of the Matrix film series, The Matrix Resurrections, starring Keanu Reeves, is just around the corner, and fans are excited to see Neo and Trinity back in action. The second trailer for the film has just been released, and it is clear from what is shown that it will heavily draw on the events of the 1999 original.
Along with Reeves, the film will feature Carrie-Anne Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jada Pinkett Smith, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and many other actors. Though there has been consistent buzz surrounding the film, the domestic box office projections are a surprise. Here's our 'The Matrix Resurrections' box office prediction.
The Matrix Resurrections will be released just before Christmas, but not on Fridays as usual. This is an unusual start for the film, and it could be one of the many factors influencing box office predictions. According to Box Office Pro, Keanu Reeves' film is expected to earn between $35 and $50 million in its first three days, owing to the fact that the film's first three days will be during the week rather than on the weekend.
The domestic gross for The Matrix Resurrections will be between $95 and $135 million. The Keanu Reeves-led film will also face competition from Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is expected to gross between $520 million and $690 million. It's also worth noting that the COVID-19 pandemic's aftereffects have had an impact on the number of moviegoers.
Another reason for the film's low expectations is that it will be released in a hybrid format. Many fans may prefer to watch it online on HBO Max rather than in theatres. These box office projections are far from final, and as the promotion continues, the numbers will most likely rise. The Matrix Resurrections is directed by Lana Wachowski.
