This summer, there are a slew of exciting new films hitting theaters around the country. But film buffs are in for an additional treat — several classic, crowd-pleasing titles, including Ghostbusters, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Forrest Gump, are celebrating big anniversaries and being re-released in theaters.
But why should Hollywood stop there? There are countless films that have stood the test of time and deserve a second viewing. Whether in 3-D, IMAX or good old-fashioned reissue, each of these films would surely draw both fans eager for a second look and a new generation seeking a chance to see them in their cinematic glory for the first time.
1. The Matrix (1999)
The first film in the Wachowski brothers’ sci-fi classic trilogy premiered 15 years ago, revolutionizing the way we view action sequences and cementing Keanu Reeves’ position as a pop culture icon. The Matrix features cutting-edge special effects, an awesome soundtrack, and a mind-bending plot. It also gained a loyal following of fans who would surely turn up for another glimpse of Neo, Morpheus, Trinity, and Agent Smith on the big screen — especially if it were on an IMAX screen.
