Did you know that The Matrix Reloaded was banned in Egypt?
Madkour Thabit, the head of the film censorship group in Egypt banned the movie from release in the country because of religious reasons. Though the committee claimed that the violence in the movie had a small impact on their judgement, the main reason for banning was the openly religious themes that permeate the plot. The statement released by the groups stated that Matrix Reloaded movie discussed the themes of “the creator and his creations, searching for the origin of creation and the issue of compulsion and free will.” The group felt that this was not a healthy line of thought for a religiously appropriate upbringing.

Along came King David. A direct ancestor of Jesus Christ, David was born around 1040BC and grew up as a simple shepherd. David defeated the massive Goliath as a boy, and the current king, Saul, grew jealous and tried many times to kill David. David avoided them all and, on Saul’s death, took the throne.
Looking for a base of operations, David spotted the fort of Zion. The Jebusite refused to allow him in, and David invaded the fort by sneaking into the sewer systems. Then as a city grew around the fort, that city was called the City of David. The fort was moved to another hill, and in time a temple was built on the original location. The name Zion then referred to the temple. It was in this temple that the Ark of the Covenant, which David guarded, was kept.

The ancient mythology regarding Persephone is similar to Neoâ€™s taking of red pills. The fact that Persephone, a beautiful daughter of two gods, agreed to be together with a god of evil Hades means that she had taken a risk of living in darkness with a man all her life. The only escape that her mother Demeter had given her was the temporary freedom from darkness.
Neo becomes no different from this ancient character for he takes the red pills without ceasing although he knew that it wonâ€™t bring about any good to him. Like Persephone, he had been drawn to darkness and he can only escape from the addiction temporarily.

Did you know that the rooftop set that was used on the scene where Trinity escaped from Agent Jones early in the film was actually a left over from the production of Dark City? It has been remarked due to the similarities in the theme of the films.
One filmed scene and some short pieces of actions were not included in the final cut and were never published.
The Wachowski Brothers wanted to make sure that all involved in the production understood the thematic background of the movie.
The Principal cast and crew were required to read the book Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard, a French Philosopher.

Enter the Matrix is the first licensed game based on The Matrix movie series and is an essential part of the plot of the overall Matrix story. As a player youâ€™ll get to enter the Matrix itself and experience the martial arts and gunplay, which is a trademark of the movie. Besides the hand to hand combat and gun fighting, you also get to drive Niobeâ€™s car from The Matrix Reloaded, pilot the fastest hovercraft the Logos, visit the Oracle, hack into your computer, and battle Agents. The game isnâ€™t merely set in the Matrix universe. Rather, itâ€™s a whole new aspect of the Matrix experience set in between the first and second installments in the trilogy. Whenever Niobe and Ghost go off the screen in The Matrix Reloaded, theyâ€™re probably handling a mission in Enter the Matrix.

These are some of the powerful storylines in the Matrix mythos that you can find in this volume.

The Matrix Movie had been interpreted through the ancient mythology of Persephone. The myth is about a beautiful lady loved by everyone- Persephone. She was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Because of her beauty, even Hades had been captivated. Hades, then, asked consent from her parents but only Zeus agreed. Zeus took her to his â€œhellâ€ and made her his queen despite of Demeterâ€™s refusal.
Demeter went to get Persephone back from Hades and he agreed. But the problem was that the pomegranate seeds were already eaten by her. This caused a dilemma for them but both had agreed to take Persephone on different seasons instead. During winter, Hades is to stay with her. While in the summer, she is to be taken back to her mother.
