A 3D conversion of “The Matrix” trilogy would be “intense,” says Carrie-Anne Moss

With Disney making bank on their 3D revival of “The Lion King” and iconic favorites like “Star Wars” and “Titanic” coming down the third-dimensional pike, one has to wonder whether one of the biggest sci-fi franchises of the past thirty years could also be targeted for a conversion. Of course we’re talking about “The Matrix” trilogy, which pushed the limits of filmmaking with its first installment in 1999 and never looked back. So given the Wachowski siblings’ flair for cinema technology, it seems likely the innovative movies have to be on the mind of Warner Bros. execs.

With that in mind, when we caught up with Trinity herself, Carrie-Anne Moss, we asked her if she’s heard anything on the matter or whether she’d even like to see a 3D version. The actress, currently starring in “Fireflies in the Garden,” has also joined the cast of “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.” The project marks her first foray into the third realm, which as she tells us is a completely new format for her, even as a viewer.


James Cameron is converting “Titanic” into 3D, and Disney announced earlier this week that they’re re-releasing a bunch of their movies in 3D. It seems like “The Matrix” would be a perfect fit for 3D conversion. Has anyone talked to you about that?

I hadn’t heard that, but I could see that. I have no idea, but that would be trippy, wouldn’t it? Yeah – that would be intense.

I keep thinking of the shot of you jumping from the first one and how great that might look.

Right. Yeah, that’s interesting – an interesting thought.

How much do you like 3D as it’s become more commonplace in the industry?

Not so much. [B]ut not because I like it or don’t like it. I just haven’t – I don’t think I’ve seen a 3D movie at all. At “Silent Hill” when I got to the premiere, that will probably be the first one that I will see.

You didn’t see “Avatar?”

No, I didn’t.

Wow, I think you’re the last one.

Really? Well, I mean, how would I? I can’t even see it now in 3D, right? But you know what? I have three small kids and I like to rent movies, but going actually out to the movies, I’m not in that stage right now. I love going to movies, but I kind of had to put that on hold. It’s like, if you have a couple of hours to actually do something, you maybe want to go and have dinner and talk, not sit and watch something, you know?

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
