‘Matrix’ set for Egyptian screens

World Brief

Egyptian censors have overturned June’s ban and passed “The Matrix Reloaded” for screening.

However, sex scenes in the pic will be cut, according to Warners/Fox Egypt rep Antoine Zeind.

“We will position the film mid-December with only scenes involving sex censored,” said Zeind, who earlier told Daily Variety he had expected the film — like the first “Matrix” — to win the appeal.
