Warner Brothers has revealed the first trailer of a highly anticipated film, The Matrix Ressurections.
The Matrix Resurrections is an American science fiction action film produced, co-written, and directed by Lana Wachowski. It is the fourth installment in The Matrix Film Series. Starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith reprise their roles from previous films in the series, where they are joined by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Christina Ricci.
The film will be a joint production by Village Roadshow Pictures and Venus Castina Productions and is scheduled to be released by Warner Brothers Pictures theatrically on December 22, 2021; it will also stream digitally on the ad-free tier of HBO Max in the United States for a month beginning on that same date.
In this trailer, Neo and Carrie Anne Moss’ Trinity live in a near future San Francisco, their memories have been swiped. They’ve been reset and the movie looks to be about how they regain their power. Neo is taking the blue pills, which keep in line with the reality around him. But then there’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Morpheus-like character who lures Neo to live a life on the red pill, complete with a return to Kung-fu training. Jessica Henwick looks to be a fighter on the alternative reality side of life much in the way that Jada Pinkett Smith’s Niobe was in the earlier movies.
The song in the background is “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane, an American rock band that has been active since the 1960s (included in the album “Surrealistic Pillow”). It’s selected by director Lana Wachowski, the creator of the “Matrix” series and the director of all the series.
