10 Things About The Matrix You Never Knew

10 Things About The Matrix You Never Knew
Bullet time, trench coats, red pills / blue pills: the Wachowski siblings changed the game with The Matrix, the sci-fi action thriller that blew our minds in 1999. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about The Matrix.

Proof of concept.

The Chicago-born Wachowski siblings got their start in the comic book world, writing stories for Hellraiser creator Clive Barker's Razorline imprint at Marvel. The first Wachowski script to get made by Hollywood was Assassins. It was directed by Richard Donner and was so heavily rewritten they tried to have their names removed. The Wachowskis definitely wanted to direct The Matrix. Producer Joel Silver was blown away by the script but knew the studio wouldn't have confidence in the unproven duo as directors. So he suggested they make something smaller first. So the duo wrote, directed, and executive produced the neo-noir thriller Bound.

More than one "one."

The X-Files: Cancelled? Season 12 Possible But Not Coming Soon

When Gillian Anderson announced she was done with the series -- ahead of the season 11 premiere -- we knew this day was coming. The X-Files TV show on Fox is cancelled, at least for now, Deadline reports. To be fair to the network, they were clear the revival was for limited 10th and 11th seasons. However, all is not lost. While Chris Carter has said that, while he never imagined the series without Anderson as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, he is open to future seasons, with or without her. A Fox sci-fi mystery thriller, The X-Files also stars David Duchovny as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder. Together, Mulder and Scully investigate unexplained or “X-Files” cases — which have answers involving paranormal phenomena. Mitch Pileggi, William B.

Fox says that there are no plans for more X-Files at the moment

  • JoBlo
As a huge fan of The X-Files, I was thrilled when the series was revived for a six-episode season back in 2016. Sure, it wasn't quite the triumphant return to form which many of us had hoped, but it was great to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles of Mulder and Scully. As the season ended on one hell of a cliffhanger, it was assumed that the series would be back... Read More...

Gillian Anderson Just Trolled Fox Over ‘X-Files’ Cancellation
In perfect Dana Scully fashion, “The X-Files” star Gillian Anderson dryly demolished one explanation for why there won’t be a 12th season of the show.

After TVLine’s Michael Ausiello tweeted an article explaining that Fox didn’t intend to make a 12th season due to Anderson’s exit from the series, Anderson responded, “Well Michael, the truth is…after exit of 77% of viewership.”

The truth may still be out there, but more episodes of The X-Files aren't. In a conference call, Gary Newman confirmed what many X-Files fans had speculated after Gillian Anderson declared the second event series of 10 episodes was her last. "There are no plans to do another season at the moment," Fox's Newman told reporters while discussing Fox's 2018-2019 TV schedule. Anderson said she was done playing Special Agent Dana Scully following the most recent season, leading many fans to believe this would be it for the series that also stars David Duchovny.

What If Marvel's The Avengers Were Cast in the 90s?

Here's a fun series of photoshopped images that recasts the Avengers characters had these Marvel movies been made in the 90s. These were created by Houseofmat and the 90s cast that he chose includes:

Tom Cruise as Tony Stark, Eddie Muphy and Falcon, Brad Pitt as Thor, David Duchovny as Hulk, Denzel Washington as Black Panther, Ben Stiller as Ant-Man, Alicia Silverstone as Scarlet Witch, Michael J. Fox as Spider-Man, Brendan Fraiser as Star-Lord, Keanu Reeves as Doctor Strange, Sharon Stone as Black Widow, Leonardo DiCaprio as Captain America, Johnny Depp as Hawkeye, Dolph Lundgren as Vision, Cuba Gooding Jr. as War Machine, and Sandra Bullock as The Wasp.

Watch David Duchovny Unravel Fema Conspiracies on 'Full Frontal'

Watch David Duchovny Unravel Fema Conspiracies on 'Full Frontal'
Samantha Bee got David Duchovny to help her uncover the mystery behind Fema's atrocious response to hurricane damage in Puerto Rico, X-Files style. The segment was part of Full Frontal's special episode, The Great American* Puerto Rico, about the island's recovery efforts after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The clip opens with Bee's Full Frontal staff speaking with Puerto Ricans about the lack of aid and assistance provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. While Fema has frequently faced criticism for its lackluster disaster response, its efforts in Puerto Rico were especially weak,

The ‘Full Frontal’ Puerto Rico Special is a Missed Opportunity to Put a Spotlight on People Who Could Use It Most

The ‘Full Frontal’ Puerto Rico Special is a Missed Opportunity to Put a Spotlight on People Who Could Use It Most
Let’s start out with this: a comedy special helping to focus national attention on what continues to happen in Puerto Rico very admirable goal. If the current administration has been negligent towards the needs of its people and the daily news apparatus is otherwise occupied with more salacious stories, then there’s always room for a show like “Full Frontal” to step in and help shine some much-needed attention on our fellow Americans.

“The Great American Puerto Rico,” this week’s supersized “Full Frontal” episode, travels to multiple cities around the island, but it starts off on some shaky footing. Five minutes may not seem like a long time, but when it takes that long for the special to actually get to Puerto Rican citizens talking about what’s still happening to them, it’s a sign that maybe some of this special’s priorities are a bit shuffled.

‘Roseanne’ Review: ABC’s Revival Is a Flailing Mess, But Its Politics Aren’t the Problem

In an ideal world, the new “Roseanne” could exist on ABC as the conservative-leaning voice of low-income Americans, especially as a counter for the far left, uber-wealthy Pritchetts on “Modern Family.” Over the past decade, America’s Broadcast Company has made it a point to build off its Emmy-winning ratings behemoth, spawning an array of family comedies that highlight the diversity once boasted within that lone, growing, L.A. lineage. In 2018, the new families have qualitatively surpassed their inspiration: “Black-ish,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Speechless,” and “The Goldbergs” are all among the elite family comedies — if not all comedies — on television.

But the new “Roseanne” doesn’t try to carve a spot in the existing landscape so much as it lazily settles into comfortable grooves in a very old couch. Sure, it will shout about making America great again and title an episode “Netflix & Pill.” There are honest discussions about

‘The X-Files’ Is Done, and Please Let It Be For Good

  • Indiewire
Of all the times that, as an “X-Files” fan, I’ve had to say goodbye to the show, the first time was probably the best.

When Fox officially canceled the show in 2002, creator Chris Carter crafted a finale that played as a pretty solid series finale, given the show’s legacy. Two-parter “The Truth” brought back David Duchovny (after his season-long absence), attempted to explain the show’s entire mythology through a courtroom trial format, brought back long-deceased guest stars in the form of visions, and let Mulder and Scully make out at least once. Plus, it ended with a scene that served as a beautiful callback to the very first episode of the series: Mulder and Scully talking quietly together about the past and the future in a motel room.

In the pilot, that conversation was all about how Mulder’s quest had driven him into a life of loneliness and isolation,

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episodes 9 & 10 Recap: Reason and Faith In Harmony

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Trust your instincts. I had a notion during the teaser sequence of “Nothing Lasts Forever” (episode 9 of The X-Files’ 11th season, written by Karen Nielsen and directed by James Wong) that it would be best recapped alongside “My Struggle IV” (the season, and possibly series finale, written and directed by Xf creator Chris Carter). Amid the sanguine, pre-opening credits hubbub—a pair of cannibalistic physicians harvest (and taste-sample) human organs, only to be interrupted by an avenging angel vigilante named Juliet Bocanegra (Carlena Britch)—there’s a fleeting audio clip on a car radio of Tad O’Malley (Joel McHale), the paranoid host of an Alex Jones-esque media pageant who was last seen in Season 10's "My Struggle II," bellowing about mind-altering gases and chem trails.

The X-Files: Season 11 Ratings

In 2016, after more than a decade off the air, The X-Files TV show returned to Fox as a limited event series. Although the ratings landscape had changed drastically during this show's off years, and the new installment only had six episodes, it topped all the other Fox TV series in the Nielsens. Can the 10 episodes of the 11th season meet or beat those figures? If Chris Carter and the cast are interested in making more episodes, will The X-Files be cancelled or renewed for season 12? Stay tuned. Season 11 of The X-Files on Fox picks up immediately after the events of the season 10 finale cliffhanger.

How 'The X-Files' Left the Door Open for Season 12

[This story contains spoilers from the season 11 finale of Fox's The X-Files.]

At first glance, it almost looked like Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) got a (relatively) happy ending during Wednesday’s season — or possibly series — finale of Fox's The X-Files.

Although they suffered brutal losses — the X-Files were shut down (again), Scully’s son William (Miles Robbins) was presumed dead and Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) may, too, be dead — Scully surprised Mulder with one big win: she was pregnant.

Viewers will recall that the long-running Fox drama ended with a...

Davis), an emotional Scully confessed that Mulder wasn’t actually William’s father.

This is the end of Mulder and Scully as fans know it.

Did 'The X-Files' Just Kill Off a Fan Favorite?

[This story contains spoilers from the season 11 finale of Fox's The X-Files.]

Did The X-Files just kill off one of its longest-running characters?

Throughout 11 seasons and two feature films, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) were able to rely on their boss, Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). Although the relationship was occasionally strained — including this season as Skinner kept his reluctant ties to the villainous Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) quiet — no one has been a better ally to the wayward duo. But during Wednesday’s season (and possibly...
