A brand new book is incoming, that celebrates The Matrix and the impact that it’s had on the world – more details this way.

Now this should be good. The brilliant Kim Taylor-Foster is the author behind a brand new book that’s digging into the history, making of and endurance of 1999’s The Matrix.

The book is entitled Why We Love The Matrix, and is available on the Hachette/Running Press imprint from April 29th. It’s a hardback book, arriving just over six months before the fourth film in the franchise.

The official synopsis for this one reads as follows…

Whether you saw the movie in theaters in 1999 or watched it for the first time at home, there is no denying that The Matrix has had an immense impact on pop culture. This movie is a “must-see” of the science fiction genre and Why We Love The Matrix is the first and only guide that combines entertaining information about the history and making of the film with a celebratory look at all the different aspects that have helped solidify this as a beloved favorite of sci-fi fans.

Why We Love The Matrix will also offer entertaining essays about the key features that have helped the film become the classic it is today, including the origins of the plot and characters, film techniques, and the philosophy behind the story of The Matrix. Plus quotes, sidebars, trivia, and eye-catching two-color illustrations throughout.

Perfectly timed to tie-in to the 2021 release of the fourth movie in the series, this illustrated guide is a great gift for both casual and more serious fans of the movie and, let’s face it, Keanu Reeves.
