On April 13, 2014, a request for three of "The Matrix" movie cast members, at least their lookalikes, was made. Apparently fans, and this event, still have high interest in this sci-fi trilogy that began in the late '90s. As a result, the film character lookalikes are on hold for an upcoming April event in Philadelphia, Penn.
Science fiction (sci-fi) is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginative content such as futuristic settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life.
One may never know the reason for the continued interest in science fiction or this sci-fi trilogy of films, comic books, video games, toys, apparel and more. The recent KIA TV commercial, with Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus), might be one reason, but either way, it is great news for those who look the parts!
The three movie characters, requested by the event, were from the Wachowski brothers' trilogy. They are Morpheus, Neo and Trinity. In additon to Fishburne, the actors who portrayed these characters in the films that originated in 1999, are Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.
Even though the Philly event is in its pre-production stage, the lookalikes who were requested are in full swing prepping. One doesn't usually walk around in real life looking like a sci-fi character!
Until photos are made available from the actual upcoming event, photos shared here are mostly of the original actors plus a few of "Trinity." Shaul Shwarz and Israel David Groveman were two of the photographers used shooting the Trinity lookalike in Las Vegas and Manhattan.
The film trilogy synopsis (the first one): "The Matrix" (1999) is a science fiction action film written and directed by The Wachowski Brothers, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano.
The film depicts a future in which reality, as perceived by most humans, is actually a simulated reality called "the Matrix." It is created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while their bodies' heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source.
Computer programmer Neo learns this truth and is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, which involves other people who have been freed from the "dream world."
Sci-fi fans can look forward to future news on the upcoming "The Matrix" themed event and the talent who portrayed the films' characters. Enjoy trailer of "The Matrix."
