Matrix Resurrections dies at the box office: only $22.8 million in 5 days

The Matrix Resurrections is now out in the wild in both theaters across the world, and streaming service HBO Max — but man, it really hasn’t done well at the box office — Spider-Man: No Way Home has absolutely destroyed the fourth Matrix movie.

The very-meta, not-so-groundbreaking Matrix Resurrections has only clutched at straws to bring $22.8 million in the 5 days since it opened in theaters on December 21, but when you compare that to Disney and its new MCU entry with Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has made a staggering $1 billion since its release just days before The Matrix Resurrections.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is the first movie to break $1 billion at the box office post-pandemic, so that’s a big deal — making The Matrix Resurrections (a multi-billion-dollar franchise) and its $22.8M five-day haul look like Neo took the blue pill in comparison. Now, to be clear: these are US box office numbers — global box office numbers for The Matrix Resurrections aren’t much better, with the Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss-led movie bringing in $69.8 million during its debut weekend globally.

Matrix Resurrections’ 5-day opening is the lowest for the 22-year old sci-fi franchise behind the 1999 first installment’s 5-day of $37.3M. The franchise opening record belongs to 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded which made $134.2M from Wednesday to Sunday.
