Twenty years ago, as The Matrix movie was coming out, The Wachowskis launched their own comic book publishing wing, Burlyman Entertainment. Creating comic books based in and around the world of The Matrix from some of the greatest comic book creators of the day (and still these days as well) including Dave Gibbons, Neil Gaiman, […]
After news broke that Warner Bros was planning a Matrix reboot, with Zak Penn writing a treatment, the internet spent a few days thinking about that and was mostly skeptical. After all, in the almost-20 years since the original film hit, we invented the Matrix for ourselves. Kidding (not kidding), but aside from the notion that it's all feeling […]

Directed by David Gordon Green of Pineapple Express and George Washington.
