The Matrix is already more than 15 years old, and its sequels were released more than 10 years ago - but their impact is still felt to this day. The Wachowski siblings built a massive film franchise that broke records, changed film, and woke everybody up. The Matrix movies are full of depth, nuance, and detail, unlike few other series. There's plenty of Matrix trivia you might not know, interesting Matrix facts to learn, and a host of Easter eggs, but it's all collected here for your enjoyment and education!
The first Matrix film redefined cinema, or at the very least its genre. By the mid-2000s (within five years of its release) the bullet time scene had been spoofed in countless films and television parodies. The Matrix Reloaded, when it was released, held the title of highest grossing R-rated movie of all time.
The trilogy changed movies, and movie going, no matter how you look it at. Plus, it still holds up amazingly well more than a decade later (you can't say that about a lot of the imitators that followed.) So sit back and enjoy these facts you probably didn't know about The Matrix Trilogy.
