The Matrix Resurrections, which was released earlier in 2021, is a sequel to The Matrix Revolutions (2003) and is the fourth installment in the Matrix film franchise. The sci-fi action franchise was released after a span of 18 years, but the sequel couldn’t get the entire band back together. While, some of the cast members, including Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, returned to the Matrix last year, but it wasn’t enough.
Recently one of the cast members of the original “Matrix” trilogy, Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus, had his say on “Resurrections.” The role of Morpheus in the sequel was played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and he completely adapted the role very well.
On Tuesday evening, Fishburne was seen at the premiere of his new Netflix film “The School for Good and Evil,” where he said about the “Resurrections” that “It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. And it wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be,” Fishburne told Variety’s, Marc Malkin. “But I thought Carrie-Anne and Keanu really did their thing. Yeah, that’s what I thought.”
He openly praised his co-stars, and when he was asked whether he felt any regret about not being a part of the sequel, his answer was “No not really.” Well, other than Keanu and Moss, there were some more actors that were present in Restructions, such as Jada Pinkett Smith and Lambert Wilson. However, the story’s two primary characters, Morpheus and Smith, were given a new spin in which Abdul-Mateen played Morpheus and Jonathan Groff played Smith.
Well, Fishburne was not present with Reeves in The Matrix Resurrections, but don’t get disappoint as the two will co-star in “John Wick: Chapter 4,” releasing on March 24, 2023, where Keanu Reaves will star as John Wick, a professional hitman and assassin and Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King.
Today, Fishburne’s new film “The School for Good and Evil” is available to watch on Netflix, where he will star as the School Master. The film is based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Soman Chainani. At the premiere of his new film, Laurence praised some of his Good and Evil” co-stars:
“Charlize and Kerry are amazing!” Fishburne said. “The movie, I have to say, is really good. It’s fun. It’s really smart. It’s kind of a cool girl power movie.”
