Cornerstone Promotion is proud to present Matrix fans with their ONLY opportunity to catch The Animatrix on the big screen. This week, midnight screenings of the anime/sci-fi masterpiece will take place in Chicago, Austin, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. The screenings will be fully open to the public, so bring your friends. In addition, Cornerstone will hold exclusive Tastemaker screenings in Chicago and LA tomorrow night. Because we love you, any Tripwire user in these two markets is welcome to attend the Tastemaker screenings (space provided). The details are below.
For those that don't know, The Animatrix is a groundbreaking collection of nine short films from the creators of The Matrix. The Wachowski Brothers recruited the world's top CG-animation and Japanese anime masterminds to show just how deep the rabbit hole will go. The stories told by The Animatrix provide a backdrop to the full length feature film. Secrets are revealed, questions are answered, and the visuals will blow your mind (even if you're not a sci-fi dork like me). The voices of Keanu Reeves (The One) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity) are featured in two of the shorts.
The Animatrix will be released tomorrow (June 3) on VHS and DVD by Warner Home Video/Village Roadshow Pictures, but again, your ONLY chance to see the amazing short film collection on the big screen will be to attend this week's midnight or exclusive Tastemaker screenings.
