I never knew that the matrix made that much. It sounds like the Wachowskis certainly could if they wanted to, based on that. The real question is whether they really want to, or whether the bomb of Speed Racer effectively erased everything they accomplished with the studios during the Matrix Trilogy.Combined, the three matrix films were budgeted an estimated $363,000,000 by Warner Brothers. Worldwide, all three films made a total of $1,615,900,000. That is nearly a $1.2 billion profit. Yes, that’s right: $1.2 Billion.
That does not include revenue generated from DVD rentals and purchases, video games, merchandise, and the rest.
In short, two factors will determine whether there will be a matrix 4. Factor number one is obviously the money, the bottom line, and the earnings. Despite your opinion on the movies, they make money.
