TORONTO – They’ve made their choice: “Matrix” stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will première the latest instalment of their sci-fi saga in Toronto.
Warner Bros. Pictures Canada says the Canadian leads of “The Matrix Resurrections” will present the country’s first glimpse of the film Dec. 16.
Reeves and Moss return to roles they originated in 1999’s “The Matrix,” in which Reeves’ character Neo is given a choice between two pills — one that reveals a simulated reality known as the Matrix, and one that returns him to a dream world.
“The Matrix Resurrections” — the fourth film in the series — also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Warner Bros. Pictures Canada says fans can enter to win a trip to the première by scanning film-branded QR codes placed at various businesses in cities including Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver. Codes will also be projected onto downtown buildings in some cities and appear in GameStop Canada locations across the country.
The contest closes Dec. 5 but fans can scan the QR codes until Dec. 20 for a chance to win passes to see the film in Imax when it debuts Dec. 22.
