Sci-fi action thriller The Matrix first came out in 1999 – but many still love the original today.
The movie follows computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) in a future dystopia as he discovers humanity is trapped inside an AI-controlled simulation – something Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) are trying to wake the world up from.
The franchise is so popular that two sequels were released in 2003 – with a third sequel, The Matrix Resurrections, out now.
Keanu, 57, is back as Neo – but seems pretty adamant that fans should watch the latest Matrix in a cinema, not on their home TVs when it comes out as on-demand.
In a recent chat with The Guardian, he told the interviewer: ‘Don’t stream that f***ing movie… What are you, crazy? You’re going to stream the new Matrix on a laptop?’
Still, before you head to the cinema, you’ll need to catch up on the original trilogy. Probably on streaming. (Sorry, Keanu).
Where to watch the original Matrix trilogy in the UK
If you’re happy to pay for the film on Amazon Prime UK, The Matrix (1999) costs £3.49 to rent or £5.99 to buy.
The Matrix Revolutions (2003) and The Matrix Reloaded (2003) are also on Amazon for the same price.
Superfans can even go deeper into The Matrix with a 2014 documentary called Matrix Revisited for £3.49.
You can also buy the Matrix trilogy on Google Play.
But if you’ve got NowTV’s Cinema Pass, which includes Sky Cinema, you can stream for free.
If NowTV’s caught your eye, it does cost £9.99 a month for a subscription – but there is a seven-day free trial available.
Sadly, you can’t watch The Matrix or its sequels on Netflix UK.
The Matrix Resurrections is showing at UK cinemas from December 22
