The Matrix Resurrections Trailer Takes Us Back to Where It All Started

“Time to fly.”

The Matrix Resurrections trailer is here — in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. As guaranteed, Warner Bros. As promised the first full-length trailer for the fourth Matrix film, that brings back both Keanu Reeves’ Neo, and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity, who wind up back in the virtual world that began everything. The Matrix Resurrections trailer shows that Neo and Trinity recognize each other, and indicates significant parts for Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (who is by all accounts playing a more youthful interpretation of Morpheus, however perhaps it’s simply the comparable outfit) and Jessica Henwick (wearing blue hair and looking totally dissimilar to how we know her from Game of Thrones and Iron Fist). The Matrix Resurrections is coming to HBO Max (in the US) and films (internationally) the seven-day stretch of Christmas.

Thomas Anderson/Neo (Keanu Reeves) is at a therapy session with Neil Patrick Harris at the start of The Matrix Resurrections trailer, when he sees a black cat, very much like the one from the sensation that this has happened before second in The Matrix. He says he’s had dreams that weren’t simply dreams and contemplate whether he’s insane. Patrick Harris says they don’t use that word in here. Elsewhere, Neo meets Trinity but she doesn’t know him, we get a glimpse of Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ character, before a very Morpheus-looking Abdul-Mateen II tells Neo: “Time to fly.” Later, Henwick tells Neo to follow him if he wants the truth (is she in the Trinity role now?), before they walk through a door and end up seemingly in The Matrix.

There is a training battle among Reeves and Abdul-Mateen II that echoes the one among Neo and Morpheus from The Matrix, before The Matrix Resurrections trailer maneuvers into an activity arranged stuff. We see Agents assuming control over bodies, Neo trapped in a structure with the sprinklers streaming (once more, very much like from The Matrix), Abdul-Mateen II shooting weapons, and Trinity’s body in one of those loads that the robots worked for people. Henwick plays out a ton of cool tricks in The Matrix Resurrections trailer, yet there’s an exhibit for Reeves as well, who stops many shots and even diverts a rocket onto a helicopter. Jonathan Groff closes The Matrix Resurrections trailer with a fourth divider breaking kind of line: “After so long, to be returning to where everything began. Back to the Matrix.”
