Toronto’s own Keanu Reeves got an epic welcome home tonight as the Black Carpet was rolled-out at Scotiabank Theatre for the Canadian Premiere of THE MATRIX: RESURRECTIONS. This fourth installment of The Matrix Series directed by Lana Wachowski, takes place some 20 years after the events of The Matrix Revolutions and we find Neo (Reeves) living an ordinary life, only to cross paths with a woman who appears to be Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss). Joining a group of rebels, he must fight a new enemy and also find again his one true love, the “real” Trinity.
Reeves is in the thick of promotions for this eagerly-awaited Sci-Fi-Action Blockbuster, just having done the rounds in New York earlier this week. Special precautions were taken at the Premiere tonight allowing only select Media who had met testing and vaccination requirements access to the Black Carpet. And while these Premieres normally include a fan pit, extra precautions were made to clear the area for social distancing amidst these unique times. The venue also was bought-out completely with all 14 screens devoted to playing the Film. Outside and inside the theatre, elaborate projections of the Film’s iconic green digital rain where displayed in high-definition taking fans right back inside The Matrix. The Premiere was brought to us by Audi, The Fairmont Royal York Hotel and IMAX.
Moss originally was slated to attend the affair as well, but sadly couldn’t make it out. Nonetheless, Toronto fans were thrilled to see their pride and joy celebrate with them.
We were incredibly lucky to be seated right beside Reeves as he chat with Host Donovan Bennett about how great it is to be back and seeing this Film on IMAX.
