Last night, there was a glitch in the Matrix.

Well, either that or it was just Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Laurence Fishburne reunited a solid 18 years after the release of the benchmark 1999 actioner.

Yep, Neo, Trinity and Morpheus were spotted in the same place at the same time for the premiere of ‘John Wick Chapter 2′, Reeves’ follow up to the 2014 hit.

Agent Smith was unfortunately absent.


Fishburne was a given, really, considering he’s got a starring role in this second movie, playing The Bowery King, a ruthless crime lord.

Moss was a bit of a bonus, though.

Keanu told EW: “It was so cool to have a chance to work with Laurence Fishburne again, with the history that we have professionally and personally.

“I ran into him, and he was saying that he was a fan of the first film, and was there anything in the second film. I said, ‘As a matter of fact there is!’”

Also on the bill are ‘Orange Is The New Black’ star Ruby Rose, Common, and returning stars Ian McShane, John Leguizamo and Lance Reddick.

The first movie was a critical smash, and earned nearly $90 million from its $20 million budget.
