The decade the Kardashians took over everything

Buzzfeed looks at the rise of the Kardashian family. And says their road to the top was more complicated than you remember and more surprising than you’d expect. A decade of the Kardashians

Back in 2010, when KUWTK was only a few seasons old there was no precedent for the kind of star the Kardashian sisters were becoming. The word “influencer” didn’t exist; Twitter was for nerds and Instagram wouldn’t launch until October that year. 

Most people believed the Kardashians would be flashes in the reality TV pan, pretty party girls who would fizzle out and fade away like Kim K’s one-time boss Paris Hilton.

But instead, the Kardashian clan took advantage of the fast-evolving social media and personal branding and built an empire. They now have a billion-dollar makeup company, at least five clothing lines, eight spinoff shows and nine grandchildren.

In recent years, however, Warner Bros has been working on ways to get the Matrix back on the big screen, whether a reboot or continuation. 

The studio decided on a continuation and made the announcement of a fourth instalment to the franchise a few months ago. Both Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss will reprise their roles in this new chapter (despite their character deaths in Revolutions). 

There have been several casting updates since the announcement and ahead of the start of production in early 2020.

The third, and last, instalment left the door open for Bruce to one day return to Batman. Bale told the Toronto Sun that a fourth Nolan Batman movie was pitched by the studio. 

Bale said when the studio asked about doing a fourth film, he said, “No. We have to stick to Chris’ dream, which was always to, hopefully, do a trilogy. Let’s not stretch too far and become overindulgent and go for a fourth.”
