The Wachowski’s trippy Sense8 is returning in December for Season 2, and Netflix have released a series of photos today to stoke anticipation during the long wait. In the first outing we got to know the eight characters as they discovered their telepathic powers, exploring each other’s lives and defending one another from the villainous ‘Whispers.’
The big difference this time around is is that Capheus has been recast, with Toby Onwumere taking over from Aml Ameed as Capheus “Van Damme.” Apparently, production was troubled by conflict between Ameen and series co-creator/exec producer/director Lana Wachowski, while sources indicate that tempers flared during a table read in Berlin and only got worse as filming moved to India. Whatever happened, Ameed left the show under a cloud and a replacement was needed.

In this edition of Sequel Bits: Samuel L. Jackson has already started working on The Incredibles 2. Yes, Samuel L. Jackson (again) has seen Split and has sequel thoughts. It looks like a familiar face is back for Jurassic World 2. Keanu Reeves wouldn’t say no to a fourth Matrix movie. Samuel L. Jackson has […]

It was fun seeing Keanu Reeves and Lawrence Fishburne on screen together again in John Wick 2, and it does seem that Reeves is making himself a comeback with this new franchise. However, his biggest franchise is that of The Matrix, and even though the last two movies were not received as well as the original, it was still a fun ride for many fans.
At the end of Matrix 3: Revolutions, Reeves sacrificed his life to give peace to the survivors of the machine, and give everyone a happy ending, seemingly ending the trilogy for good. However, there was a small shred of hope in the last scene when The Oracle (Mary Alice) was asked by Sati (Tanveer K. Atwal):
"Will we ever see him again?" to which she replied, "I suspect so. Someday."
In speaking with Yahoo Movies, Reeves was asked about Matrix 4 and he gave the surprising answer of, »

Rounding up yesterday’s big news stories…
Wonder Woman Villain Revealed
Warner Bros. has been doing a good job of keeping Wonder Woman’s big villain under wraps, but following news this weekend that the character (who shall not be named here, if you want to avoid spoilers) will be portrayed by David Thewlis, and now we’ve had our very first look at the big bad, albeit in action figure form; check it out here.
The Predator Isn’T For Pussies
Filming on Shane Black’s The Predator kicked off production yesterday, with Black taking to Twitter to confirm that he’s aiming for an R-rating as “PG-13 is for pussies”. Black also shared a first cast photo featuring Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and Jacob Tremblay (Room). Take a look at the photo here. »

It's been nearly 18 years since the 1999 sci-fi classic The Matrix took the world by storm and put the Wachowski sisters on the map. Keanu Reeves is still kicking ass on the big screen with his hit sequel John Wick: Chapter 2 currently in theaters. It serves as a Matrix reunion, with Laurence Fishburne playing a character known as The Bowery King. Both actors reunite with Chad Stahelski, who directed the John Wick sequel and served as Keanu Reeves' stunt double on The Matrix trilogy. While promoting John Wick 2 in the U.K., Keanu Reeves was asked if he would ever consider coming back to make The Matrix 4. Here's what he had to say.
"Wachowskis would have to be involved. They would have to write it and direct it. And then we'd see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that'd be weird, but why not? People die, »

Rumours of belated sequels to Keanu Reeves movies seem to be on a bit of a rota. Bill & Ted 3 is the one that he seems most keen to make, given that he continues to maintain that the story is pretty much in place for a new film. But every now and then, some story pops up about a possible Speed 3, or The Matrix 4. More than latter than the former.

Reeves was in the UK doing promotional work for John Wick: Chapter 2, and he came face to face with Yahoo UK as part of that. And the folks there quizzed him about returning to The Matrix at some point. His answer? Possibly.
“The Wachowskis [writers/directors of the trilogy] would have to be involved”, he insisted. »
“Will we ever see him again?” A curious Sati asked at the tail-end of The Matrix Revolutions, to which The Oracle (Mary Alice) replied: “I suspect so. Someday.” It’s been more than a decade since Keanu Reeves last donned Neo’s signature black sunglasses and waged war against the machines, but there remains a sliver of hope that the Hollywood veteran could one day reprise the iconic role if the stars were to align.
Yahoo Movies caught up with Reeves recently in anticipation of John Wick: Chapter 2 (our review), in which the actor reprises his role as death’s ruthless emissary. Pummelling goons and racking up an astronomical body count is one thing, but what about the possibility of re-teaming with the Wachowskis for The Matrix 4? It’s not off the table, according to Reeves, but the actor did stress that both Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski would »

Remember when we brought you news that a resurrection of the series Firefly could happen if and only if Joss Whedon was involved? We have something similar to that news but bigger. Keanu Reeves said that he would 100% consider doing a fourth installment of The Matrix under one condition. Here’s what he said: The Wachowskis would have to be involved. They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not? People die, stories don’t. People in stories don’t. This is welcomed news

Get ready for the second coming of Christ (figure): Keanu Reeves tells Yahoo! Movies he’d like to return to The Matrix, the movie franchise that kicked off the not-quite-human phase of his career. Although Reeves gets to do some of his Neo act in the John Wick movies, he’s also got a lingering desire to be in another Matrix movie—but he’ll only don the black coat and sunglasses under certain conditions. As you can see, they’re pretty straightforward:
The Wachowskis would have to be involved. They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not? People die, stories don’t, people in stories don’t.
Reeves’ early, not-at-all binding rider just requires that Lana and Lilly Wachowski, the original filmmakers, write and direct the fourth »

With John Wick: Chapter 2 in cinemas now, it seems a good time to take a look back over Keanu Reeves’ forays into the action genre. Over the years Reeves has dipped his toes into just about every genre. He broke out of course in comedy, becoming forever identified as Ted Theodore Logan in the two Bill and Ted films. He’s done dramas, thrillers, romance and horror films. He’s even done Shakespeare (not that the world, or indeed Reeves himself needs reminding of that). However, Ted Logan aside, his most iconic work has been in the action genre.
The ageless Reeves took his first foray into the genre back in 1991 with the cult classic, Point Break. Whilst undoubtedly he was overshadowed by Patrick Swayze in the film, what was apparent was that Reeves, while still actively trying to shake »

Chicago – It takes a special kind of film that enthralls the audience so much that they stop caring about the body count and are more concerned with the main character running out of bullets. “John Wick: Chapter 2” offers the same cathartic effect as watching a Nazi get punched but in an infinitely more picturesque package.
“John Wick: Chapter 2” came, saw and slaughtered the entire sequel game. This film has set the standard for how action film sequels should be more ambitious than their predecessors. More than that, “John Wick” has become a case study on what elements are needed for successful and fulfilling franchise building. Director Chad Stahelski has spent his career building up to this glorious point. As a stunt coordinator on several major action films, many starring Keanu Reeves (“Point Break”, “The Matrix Trilogy”, “Constantine”), Stahelski has both the action and Keanu experience to create a decent action film. »

With John Wick co-director David Leicht off directing Deadpool 2, Chad Stahelski returns to take sole control over follow up to the brilliant, Keanu Reeves starring shoot ‘em up. We sat down with the former stuntman to talk about how he creates such beautiful carnage in John Wick Chapter 2, as well as grabbing updates on the future of the John Wick franchise and his upcoming Highlander remake.
Why John Wick 2? Why’ve you made a second one?
There’s all the fiduciary reasons for the studio. For me, on a personal level, we were very fortunate. The first movie did really well. My partner Dave (Leicht), and I got a lot of other offers to do projects and step into other people’s shoes and do other sequels. »
Nobody knows action movies better than the minds behind John Wick: Chapter 2, director Chad Stahelski and stunt coordinator J.J. Perry. Both have been in the business for decades, though most people probably don't know their names. They started as stunt performers, doubling for the stars of movies like Blade, Point Break, Mortal Kombat, The Matrix, and 300. They both have also been the stunt coordinators and/or second unit directors for action in movies like Captain America: Civil War, The Hunger Games, Warrior, The Tournament, and even the upcoming The Fate of the Furious. Basically, Stahelski and Perry really, really, really know their stuff. So when we asked them for a simple list of their top five action movies they thought people should see before they die, they...

I’ve been saying it for the last ten years: The world needs another Matrix movie. Keanu needs it. The Wachowskis needs it. Laurence Fishburne needs it. Hell, Carrie‑Anne Moss definitely does. We need The Matrix 4. With Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne teaming up again on John Wick 2, talks about another Matrix sequel have […]

Lionsgate’s shoot-em-up action thriller “John Wick: Chapter 2” blasted its way to twice the opening weekend its predecessor did, even with two other box office heavy hitters also debuting the same night. Keanu Reeves stars as a retired hitman with a bounty on his head in the sequel to 2014’s “John Wick.” The film, directed by Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad, also features Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne — reuniting with Reeves for the first time since “The Matrix” films. Most movie sequels don’t open as strong as the first »

There is no doubt that John Wick is as unstoppable a character as there is in the Keanu Reeves movie universe. But did you ever think about how he would fare against characters like The Matrix’s Neo or Point Break’s Johnny Utah? What about Reeves’ Samurai character in 47 Ronin? Could Theodore Logan give John Wick a run for his money? There’s only one way to find out: create a fan theory about it using tangible evidence and examples. When you’re done doing that turn said fan theory into a video so it’s easier to understand and more fun to

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
Can a human and a machine love one another? This is the question Humans dedicates itself to not only asking, but to asking in as many ways possible.
The show exists in a setting familiar to most science-fiction fans: a world in which lifelike humanoid machines populate society’s homes and businesses. Like the hosts of Westworld or the replicants of Blade Runner, they’re anatomically identical to humans and nearly blend in with humans. However, unlike hosts and replicants, the “Synths” of Humans do not think, trick, manipulate, feel or lie. That is, except for a select few – Niska, Mia, and a handful of others – who are disrupting expectations due to their “consciousness code.”

Keanu Reeves is in the midst of a pretty awesome comeback right now. After appearing in two of the most iconic action films of the 90s, and quite possibly of all-time, the actor didn’t have the best luck. In recent years, however, his fortunes have turned, and that’s mostly thanks to John Wick. The film saw Reeves play the titular hitman and though it didn’t do gangbusters at the box office, it became something of a cult hit and turned enough heads to warrant a sequel.
This weekend, John Wick: Chapter 2 shot its way into theaters and so far, things look promising for the flick. Reviews are very positive and though it’s going up against The Lego Batman Movie and Fifty Shades Darker at the box office, it should have no trouble pulling in a good chunk of change. So, where does Keanu go from here? »

This evening Keanu Reeves brought his own particularly special set of skills to London for the Gala screening of John Wick Chapter 2. This is the second film in a presumably ongoing series for the actor, in which pits the semi-retired hitman against hordes of mafioso all across the world.
The first film had a number of exceptional set pieces which never strayed too far away from the ridiculous to cause any concerns. Indeed, the stripped bare narrative was one of the most important things John Wick Chapter 1 did. Fans of the first will be hoping that the sequel continues this trend.
The film stars Keanu Reeves, his co-star from The Matrix Laurence Fishburne, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, Common, Ruby Rose, and Peter Stormare. The film is directed by Chad Stahelski and sees a release here in the UK at the end of next week. »
