Was only a matter of days ago, we got a first look at the upcoming 4th installment in The Matrix saga with a sneak peak at The Matrix Resurrections. But now, finally…we have the first full look into The Matrix Resurrections. After 18 long years, its time to hack back into the mainframe and enter The Matrix.
Keanu Reeves returns to the Matrix franchise as its hero, Neo, reprising his role from the first three films. Carrie Anne Moss also returns for the fourth installment to reprise her role as Trinity. The all-star cast also includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Christina Ricci, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Ellen Hollman, Lambert Wilson, and Jada Pinkett Smith. Lana Wachowski returns to direct Resurrections, from a script she co-wrote with David Mitchell and Aleksander Hemon.
The trailer doesnt give too much away about the storyline. It starts with Thomas Anderson aka Neo sitting with a psychiatrist (played by Neil Patrick Harris) discussing dreams which arent dreams. A reuniting with Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) is also shown however they dont actually know each other in this life. Warners Bros did share this however giving some insight for fans:
“The Matrix Resurrections” is a continuation of the story established in the first MATRIX film. It reunites Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as cinematic icons Neo & Trinity in an expansion of their story that ventures back into the Matrix and even deeper down the rabbit hole. A mind-bending new adventure with action and epic scale, it’s set in a familiar yet even more provocative world where reality is more subjective than ever and all that’s required to see the truth is to free your mind.
20 years after the first film, the franchise that helped define pop culture at the turn of the century is back for a continuation and extension of the original movie. The Matrix remains in the zeitgeist as a film that has changed the way we look at cinema and reality itself. With its game changing action and visual effects, The Matrix helped pave the way for films to follow.
Either way, this trailer looks epic. The special effects are once again on another level. This is going to be something special.
The Matrix Resurrections hits cinemas and HBO Max in the US on December 22nd 2021, while in Australia, we will have to wait till New Years Day (January 1st 2022) to see it.
