Is Manila inside The Matrix? Motorists could have asked that question last Jan. 5 when major billboards along EDSA flashed “Return to the Source” and “Follow the White Rabbit” and iconic green digital rain for a literal Matrix takeover.
This “roadblock” activation is in celebration of The Matrix Resurrections, which opened in the Philippines on Jan. 12.
The EDSA billboards that participated in the “roadblock” are strategically located in Magallanes, Boni, Guadalupe Bridge, Shrine (Ortigas), and Cubao. Check out The Matrix – EDSA Takeover vignette below: YouTube: https://youtu.be/gr5XBDfhTi8; and Facebook: https://fb.watch/at2JS4NchW/
From visionary filmmaker Lana Wachowski comes The Matrix Resurrections, the long-awaited next chapter in the groundbreaking franchise that redefined a genre.
The new film reunites original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the iconic roles they made famous, Neo and Trinity.
Reeves reprises the dual roles of Thomas Anderson/Neo, the man once saved from the Matrix to become the savior of humankind, who will once again have to choose which path to follow.
Moss portrays the iconic warrior Trinity… or is she Tiffany, a suburban wife and mother of three with a penchant for superpowered motorcycles?
Joining Reeves and Moss are Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
The Matrix Resurrections is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a WarnerMedia company.
