In a odd bit of synchronicity (or more likely a simple game of chicken between movie studios), May 21, 2021 was previously announced as the release date for John Wick: Chapter 4 which also stars Keanu Reeves. Not only do we get the fourth John Wick movie on that date, but it also marks the release of The Matrix 4. Numerous writers and directors have worked on the project - but now it's under the auspices of Andy Muschetti, the director of the recent IT movies. Anyone who's seen the first three chapters of John Wick probably figured that a fourth movie was bound to happen. It will also feature the return of Carrie-Anne Moss with newcomers Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff and Toby Onwumere. Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film. Variety reports that the movie had been allocated to receive a conditional $18.5 million tax credit for shooting in California.

Keanu Reeves has had a great year so far, largely thanks to the massive success of John Wick 3 - although he appeared in several other notable movies, including in Toy Story 4 and a Netflix comedy where he played himself.

Kate also wore the Royal Family Order - a yellow ribbon with a portrait of the Queen surrounded by diamonds - on her chest. She completed her look with a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order on her blue sash bestowed to her by the Queen .

Matrix 4, meanwhile, has taken the slot Warner Bros previously had for Taika Waititi's remake of anime classic Akira, which has now completely slipped off the schedule. Both film will star Reeves. The studio also has a name for its latest Conjuring Universe film: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It already has a September 11, 2020 release date. The Mortal Kombat movie has been moved from its original March 2021 date to January 15, 2021.
