THE MATRIX RELOADED

Four things you'll want to know about The Matrix Reloaded:

1. They look like albinos, but Twins #1 and #2 (above) are actually ghosts. Maybe that's because the real-life probability of albino twins is 1 in 6.4 million.

2. The B movie the guards are watching when Persephone (Monica Bellucci) leads Neo to the Keymaker? Brides of Dracula (1960).

3. That bushy-bearded man answering to the name of Councillor West is Princeton professor of religion Cornel West.

4. The closing credits list 1,943 names -- so you'll have to stick around for nearly 10 minutes to catch the preview for the next Matrix, November's Revolutions.
