Keanu Reeves has done a bunch of science fiction movies in his career. Some are all-timers, like The Matrix and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Others really stink, like Johnny Mnemonic and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Now he’s back in that familiar genre with Replicas, and it feels like he might just have…
It’s not just superheroes that have the monopoly on comic book origin stories. Now Keanu Reeves’ kinda-sorta-not-really ex-hitman John Wick is getting his own, in the form of a new comic series coming later this year.
Pulse-pounding action is the selling point for the John Wick movies, but that’s not the main thing that makes them so good. That distinction goes to the high-tech, deeply rooted mythological setting where assassins live lives of unfathomable luxury and respect. It’s a world the filmmakers behind the series would like…
John Wick: Chapter 2 opens today, and while that film quite doesn’t fit within io9's science fiction/fantasy borders, star Keanu Reeves has certainly devoted a large chunk of his career to those genres we love best. So now seems a good a time as any to remember his oeuvre. His performances don’t always vary much, but…
Horror filmmakers are always looking for unexplored territory in the genre, and what’s more terrifying than the fashion world? Only God Forgives writer/director Nicholas Winding Refn seems to have figured that out with The Neon Demon, his new movie which casts young Elle Fanning as an aspiring fashion model who’s…
CineFix sums up Keanu Reeves in The Matrix hilariously: he gets his ass kicked, learns to kick ass and then promptly kicks everyone's ass. The problem that you maybe didn't know? Keanu actually couldn't kick in the movie's epic fight scenes.
We're going to be real, a lot of these odd (and possibly totally unintentional) details whizzed right over our heads back in 1999. Here's a video look at a handful of random things you may not have noticed from The Matrix.
Keanu Reeves is teaming up with the father of disaster porn, Roland Emmerich, to bring something that sounds a lot like The Matrix to television. The series is called New Angeles. Get it? You get it.
Remember when Keanu Reeves played a lawyer who went to work at a hot law firm — only to find that his new company actually was as hot as Hell? The movie Devil's Advocate (originally based on a novel by Andrew Neiderman) is getting a TV adaptation. But who can replace Al Pacino?
Before I re-watched it anticipation of its 20th anniversary, I might have dismissed Speed as more tired commentary on L.A. traffic. In actuality, I was shocked at how honestly the film portrayed Los Angeles' transportation culture in 1994. Although it did perpetuate its fair share of transit myths: Like anyone could …
Nobody was expecting the new 47 Ronin movie to be good — its long delays and problems have become legend — but it's bad in a particularly depressing way. This is a film that's not only boring and campy, but also kind of nonsensical, turning a classic story of revenge and loyalty into a stew of crap.
In The Day of the Doctor, the Doctor relived his darkest day. Now you can relive the Doctor reliving his darkest day by buying The Day of the Doctor tomorrow, which for Doctor Who fans shouldn't be a dark day at all. Plus Futurama, Teen Wolf, Keanu Reeves, and more!
Originally slated for a release in November of 2012, then pushed back to February of 2013 — and finally shoved even further back to December 2013 — 47 Ronin has been a long time coming. But will it work? We visited this fantasy movie's set, and here's all of the Japanese madness we witnessed.
Check out more footage from Carl Erik Rinsch's long-delayed feature which reworks the classic Japanese story of the 47 Ronin. Various adaptations of this story are common, however this could be translation with the most artistic liberties, as it's set in a fantasy world.
Another big star is in talks to join Passengers, the depressing cryo-sleep drama from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). Which asks: If you were doomed to a lifetime of solitude, would you doom another to your fate just so you wouldn't be lonely?
Before Jon Spaihts wrote the early script drafts for Prometheus, he was famous for some of his spec scripts — notably Passengers. which turned up on the "black list" of unproduced screenplays. And now, Keanu Reeves is producing and starring in Passengers, with a Game of Thrones director on board.
