'Matrix 4' was billed to be the typical dystopian, high-octane action flick and San Francisco got an early glimpse of what they could expect from the Keanu Reeves-starrer.  And for those who thought it would be a heavily CGI-driven film, it seems the movie's got some explosive sequences that caused quite the damage. 

Citizens filmed videos of low flying choppers and real explosions that, according to Cinemablend, caused actual damage worth a couple of thousand of dollars. The heat emanating from the explosions melted the covers of building lamps as well as the plastic cover of an advert sign, stated NBCBayArea in its report.

According to the report: "We just saw the plastic that was all melted, so we didn't know what was going on," Encar Orozco of JCDecaux Street Furniture said. "We called our manager and we found out that it was some explosion for the movie."

Filming of 'The Matrix 4' in San Francisco wraps up on Sunday. Not much is out there on what the storyline could be.

The only rumored plotline is the appearance of a young Morpheus. However, with Keanu Reeves returning, the Oracle's prophecy of seeing him "someday" may have just come true. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss are set to return as Neo and Trinity while there is no news of Laurence Fishburne's return.

Series co-creator Lana Wachowski will return to direct 'Matrix 4', although she will doing so without sister Lilly. This will be Lana's first solo movie directing credit.

"We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana," said Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich in August when the film was first announced.

"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," he added.
