I’m not sure which one of those numbers is the most incredible; Keanu potentially (almost surely) making US300$ million for the 2 Matrix sequels or the fact he’s giving US80$ million to 29 special effects guys! 15% of the box office take? For Keanu? Does that make sense? I mean sure it would have been weird with another Neo but would the revenues have been 15% lower? Great gesture on his part though, seems to me the “reajustement” he just did takes it closer to the weight he has in bringing in movie goers vs that of the visual fx.
