Two Reasons Why The Matrix Resurrections Bombed In China

Sometimes a movie that looks like a surefire money maker can turn out to be something much more of a tepid affair than expected. Co-writer/director Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix Resurrections is one such box office lamb that was seemingly led to the slaughter, during a very busy holiday movie season in 2021. Even more disheartening is the fact that after this weekend’s opening in the Chinese film market, Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss’s triumphant return to The Matrix has bombed yet again; and for two very specific reasons. 

Looking through the numbers compiled from its opening weekend in China, THR reported a $7.5 million result from Friday to Sunday.

Not only was the movie reported to be heavily pirated, but audiences have apparently rated the film rather poorly.
