According to a new The Matrix Resurrections synopsis, the Matrix is now much more powerful and terrifying than ever. Lana Wachowski’s upcoming project is a sequel to her and her sister Lilly Wachowski’s Matrix trilogy, which spanned from 1999 to 2003. On December 22, The Matrix Resurrections will be released in cinemas and on HBO Max. EW released a new look at The Matrix Resurrections.
The Matrix Revolutions, the last installment in the original trilogy, concludes with protagonist Neo (Keanu Reeves) killing himself to establish peace between the machines and the human city of Zion, allowing any human imprisoned within the Matrix to exit if they so want. However, in the first teaser for this long-awaited sequel, Reeves’ character appears to be enjoying a normal life under his old identity, Thomas A. Anderson, with no apparent memory of what transpired. It’s unclear how this came to be, but speculations exist as to how much of what’s seen in the early video is truly what it appears to be.
Neo is back inside the virtual reality prison, according to the Matrix Resurrections description released by Warner Bros. The Matrix’s famous red and blue pills have been widely referenced in the advertising material thus far, and this explanation of the premise similarly emphasizes choice, however illusory, as the way to leaving the Matrix. Mr. Anderson will have to make the decision once more whether or not to seek answers regarding the nature of his reality.
Because Reeves isn’t the only actor returning to the franchise, casting selections are crucial to fan ideas about what may happen in The Matrix Resurrections. Carrie-Anne Moss is resuming her role as Trinity, despite the fact that video of her thus far shows that she and Neo have no recollection of each other, leading to doubt about her identity. Also noteworthy is the fact that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will play Neo’s mentor, Morpheus, who helped him escape in 1999 original, rather than Laurence Fishburne, raising doubts about the film’s timeliness.
Prior to the trailer’s release, creative marketing showed a lot of anticipation for The Matrix Resurrections, and this summary, albeit ambiguous, is likely to get fans salivating. Breaking out of the Matrix was a simple phase of Neo’s journey in the first film, requiring only a single red pill to jolt his body awake. However, in this clip, he is given blue tablets by a therapist, implying that the program is taking a far more active approach to controlling him this time. Because it appears to be more hazardous than ever, fans can anticipate The Matrix Resurrections’ initial battle for liberation to go considerably longer than it did the first time around.
