Keanu Reeves’ career has seen a major resurgence, starring in so many different franchises and guest appearances in recent memory. However, it seems Keanu’s comeback is even bigger than most initially thought, as the two franchises he’s most associated with will have films releasing on the exact same day. The upcoming forth installment of The Matrix has its release date set for May 21st 2021, which happens to also be the release date for John Wick Chapter 4.
Both films are highly anticipated by Keanu fans, as The Matrix put him on the map as a major action star and John Wick marked the start of his career comeback. May is a fitting release month for both franchises, as the first two Matrix films were released in May with very huge numbers, especially for R-rated film franchise at the time. As for John Wick, the recent third installment Parabellum came out this past May with successful results, making about $171 million in the U.S. box office alone and being the most successful entry thus far.
While this sounds like the perfect double feature for longtime Keanu Reeves fans, the release dates are not final just yet. Very rarely do films with a similar market get released the same day, even if they are initially announced for that date. Considering how Matrix 4 is still in its very early stages of production, it could easily be delayed or pushed forward to a different release date. If not Matrix 4, then John Wick 4 could also end up being pushed back, considering how every single Wick film released during a different month with the first coming out in October, 2014 and the second in February, 2017. Regardless of whether they share a release date or not, fans still have a lot of look forward to in terms of action packed Keanu Reeves films.
Matrix 4 and John Wick Chapter 4 are set for release May 21st 2021
