Lana Wachowski, director of Matrix Resurrections, talks about the future of cinema and the space that the cifi saga could have in it
Normality seems to have returned to theaters with the return of blockbusters, although the vast majority of the box office is taking it away Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie of Marvel has absorbed any premiere, starting with that of Matrix Resurrections. But nevertheless, Lana Wachowski She recently commented that she was excited to see her work on the big screen and was hopeful for the future, both of the franchise and of cinema in general.

This is precisely what Lana Wachowski wanted to talk about with The Hollywood Reporter, commenting on very interesting things.
«I love theaters, I grew up in them. My best childhood memories are when my family took the day off from school and we all ran to the movies and consumed as many movies as we could. Movie theaters have sustained me throughout my life. When I was in high school and struggling with my identity, I would go to the cinema to see a kung fu movie, with popcorn and sticky floors, and everything seemed like it was going to be fine.«Explained the director.
What will happen to the science fiction saga now?
«It has been difficult to be without movie theaters, and to have them isolated from us or closed. It has been hard because the collective dream that takes place in these spaces is the way to imagine different futures, different lives, different possibilities, all kinds of hope or love. During my life I have not always believed in this world. Nor did I believe that I could be a Hollywood director, a transsexual Hollywood director. The actor imagining a different life in the cinema allowed me to imagine another result in my own life«, Sentenced Lana Wachowski, responsible for Matrix Resurrections.

But you know how Hollywood works. It only takes an idea and a lot of money to find the space and create a need within the market. The industry is what it is. And that will never change.
