By videoconference, the filmmaker explained his absence before the start of the presentation of the film.
“We were taking the film and doing the press tour. Although doubly vaccinated and reinforced, I caught the Covid. The good news is that I’m healthy, I’m fine. But I’m not with you. It’s a big heartache for me because this movie means so much to me. It’s been a five-year journey and I’m so excited that we’re sharing it with you tonight,” Reeves said.

I know many of you are here tonight [E] I’m so sad not to be here with you. I would like to thank everyone, name by name, even though I have been informed that this film we made is quite long”, joked the director at the end of his speech.
