21 May 2021 Is Being Hailed As Keanu Reeves Day And People Want It To Be National Holiday
That's right, the next installments of two of Keanu Reeves' most successful franchises are both currently set to drop on 21 May 2021.
Naturally, everyone has got very excited about the double whammy of pure Keanu goodness. And, because we're all going to be too busy to work, the good people of Twitter have clubbed together to demand that 21 May is renamed Keanu Day, and as such, should become a national holiday.

Although people are excited for both films, this will be the first movie in the Matrix universe in 18 years, so the whole thing is a pretty big deal.
The previous three films - The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions - took in more than $1.6 billion (£1.2bn) globally at the box office.
Keanu has definitely signed on for the upcoming Matrix film, as has Carrie-Anne Moss, who played Neo's love interest and all-round badass Trinity.
Lana Wachowski will return to write, direct and produce this latest effort, and recently received praise from Toby Emmerich, the chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group
He said: "We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana.
"Lana is a true visionary - a singular and original creative filmmaker - and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in the Matrix universe."
Wachowski added: "Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now.
So whether you're a fan of one or both films, what a day 21 May will be for Keanu fans - and let's face it, who's not a fan?
