In this year’s ”The Matrix Reloaded” and ”The Matrix Revolutions” (due, respectively, in May and November), the action won’t just come from dodging slo-mo bullets. Love will be flying high for Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss). ”We share some time alone and express our love and intimacy for each other,” Reeves tells EW. ”In the first movie their relationship was very sweet and pure,” adds Moss, ”but this time the relationship really blossoms and becomes something beautiful.”

Romance was also reloading for Laurence Fishburne and his wife of five months, ”Firefly”’s Gina Torres, who plays a mystery woman named Cass. Though Fishburne regrets he didn’t share any screen time with Torres in the ”Matrix” follow-ups, that may be for the best. Notes costar Jada Pinkett Smith, who acted with hubby Will Smith in 2001’s ”Ali,” ”If you have to work with your partner every day and then you have to go home together, you get worn out.”
