The Matrix was one of those rare examples of a film that comes along and changes the world. Its deep philosophical look into the nature of humanity and its use of technology spawned whole new genres of fiction, and the movie netted significant profits. As a result, it wasn't long before the Wachowskis got the band back together to make a sequel, and what they came up with was The Matrix Reloaded in 2003, which achieved similar financial success.
Like its predecessor, The Matrix Reloaded broke new ground, and the digital special effects used in the movie required all sorts of innovations. The story continued the previous film's narrative, and it set up the franchise's greater world in a big way through intense foreshadowing. This list features some of the more interesting things you (probably) didn't know about The Matrix Reloaded. Check them out below, and if you see something you didn't already know, be sure to give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!
