The Matrix Reloaded: The cast & crew of The Matrix sequels recently held a press conference in Sydney Australia regarding the shooting that took place there for 200 days last year:
"The story goes outside the Matrix and starts to concern itself with machines in Zion. He is told by the Oracle that he has - it's not destiny - choices that he will have to make that will affect the survival of the human race."
As fans of the Star Wars series can attest, the challenge is maintaining the storytelling without being dazzled by the technological possibilities for new visual effects.
Reloaded reputedly begins with the machines having learned the location of Zion near the earth's core. They plan to tunnel down and use thousands of sentinels - squid-like kamikazis - to obliterate the city. Revealing more of the plot than some cinema-goers will want, Newsweek said the humans' only hope is to track down a tiny character called the Keymaker, who has access to all the doors into the machine world. He is being guarded by the Twins, albinos with blond dreadlocks who can vanish and reappear like ghosts.

Indiana Jones 4:Cinescape Magazine recently sat down with director, Steven Spielberg, to talk about the progress of the 4th Indiana Jones film which is supposed to be released in the summer of 2004. Thanks to Dreamworks Fansite, some of the specifics have been transcribed:
"He hinted the premise and added that Sean Connery, Karen Allen and Kate Capshaw will indeed return. Connery will have a small role, appearing in the beginning and towards the end of the film. The leading females will also make appearances but not as lengthy as their original roles. The director didn't give any other specifics."
"We're in go mode, we're making a movie," says an enthusiastic Producer Rick McCallum, now at Fox Studios Australia preparing for principal photography for Episode III to begin in just a matter of months.
Along with Bocquet, Art Directors Peter Russell and Ian Gracie, Set Decorator Richard Roberts and Construction Manager Greg Hajdu are preparing for construction to begin at the end of this week on the first set. "They're cranking on set drawings, breakdown of the furniture requirements, paint, everything," says McCallum. "They're taking approved concept designs and taking the huge leap to make them reality. How high? What width is the door? How do you get from one room to another? All the real stuff."
McCallum points out one area where no activity has begun. "We're not ready for casting. We haven't looked at or considered a single new cast member or extra." Returning actors Hayden Christensen, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Lee and Ian McDiarmid will all be in Australia this summer.
