The futuristic sci-fi sequel The Matrix Reloaded will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where its filmmakers and stars will sashay down the red carpet.
The second film in the Matrix thriller trilogy, Reloaded will be shown out-of-competition May 15, the second day of the festival, which runs until May 25. Actors Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, and Carrie-Anne Moss reprise their roles from The Matrix, a powerhouse action film released in 1999.
Jada Pinkett Smith joins the cast for the second edition, which is, like the first, written and directed by brothers Larry and Andy Wachowski.
The film will be released internationally following the festival.
The final film in the trilogy, The Matrix Revolutions, is expected to be released later in 2003. The original Matrix won four Academy Awards and grossed over $460 million US in the worldwide box office.
The world's best known film festival, in its 56th year, serves as a launching pad for movies that are shown out of competition.
Each May, independent and big-budget movies compete in several categories for recognition and the coveted grand prize, the Golden Palm.
