Yesterday was a day of catching up on the past, as both the cast of The Matrix and Lord of the Rings, had their own reunions.
The Matrix crew were seen together at the premiere of Keanu Reeves’ John Wick: Chapter 2. The trio of Reeves as Neo, Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, first starred together 18 years ago in 1999’s The Matrix, and last night, they were pictured side by side once again:

Fishburne was in attendance as he has a role in the John Wick sequel, and Reeves was delighted to be working with him again:
“It was so cool to have a chance to work with Laurence Fishburne again, with the history that we have professionally and personally. I ran into him, and he was saying that he was a fan of the first film, and was there anything in the second film. I said, “As a matter of fact there is!”‘ he told EW.
As for the Lord of the Rings reunion, it’s been 16 years since The Fellowship of the Ring was released in theaters. And last night four key members of the cast were reunited, with Dominic Monaghan, who played Merry, posting the evidence on Instagram:
As you can see the whole gang were there — from left to right, Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Dominic Monaghan (Merry), Elijah Wood (Frodo), and Billy Boyd (Pippin) — photographed together for an Empire shoot.
And to top off the week of reunions, even the Harry Potter cast got in on the act:
