Alex Burkes presentation of the opening two minutes of a film-

The Matrix (1999)

Directed by:
Andy Wachowski
Lana Wachowski

Distributors: Warner Brothers, Roadshow Entertainment
Production companies: Silver pictures, Warner brother pictures,

The opening is see as action packed, but throughout becomes sci-fi, science fiction

The directors had no experience, and were advised to not proceed with the film,however they got huge praise when the film was released

The film has counter-types- the woman you see in the first two minutes- "Trinity" is strong and the male police officers seem weak in comparison

However the picture of Trinity on the front of the DVD could be seen as promoting the male gaze

Targeted at 16-25 year old
Most a white cast, one main character is Afro-American- widens the audience

The budget was 63 million dollars
