Matrix 4 title and trailer revealed at CinemaCon by Warner Bros.
With each passing day, we’re edging closer and closer to the highly-anticipated Matrix 4. And we’re getting droplets of information from Warner Bros., who are still keeping us on the edge. However, this time, the studios dropped a huge reveal for the fourth installment of the 1999 movie. Warner Bros. just revealed the Matrix 4 title as well as its first footage at CinemaCon.
Warner Bros. came out guns blazing at this year’s CinemaCon. They revealed the first trailer of Matrix 4, with co-producers Village Roadshow. But that’s not all, because we finally have an official title for the film too – The Matrix: Resurrections!
We don’t have the official trailer on YouTube or anywhere, but we do know what happened. According to Deadline, Neil Patrick Harris is seen first talking to Keanu Reeves’ Neo, in a futuristic San Francisco. At first, it looks like Neo is trapped in some simulation, just like he was in the original The Matrix from 1999. Neo even asks:
Am I crazy?
To that, Harris responds:
We don’t use that word in here.
However, the really strange thing was when Neo came face to face with Trinity in a restaurant. Instead of a passionate kiss, we saw Carrie Anne Moss asking him in the Matrix 4 trailer:
Have we met?
We then proceed to see a flood of blue pills in the sink, with a distorted image of Neo as an old man, with a younger Morpheus telling Neo “time to fly” as he hands him the red pill. After that, we see the typical action, jumping mid-air, karate, and whatever you can expect from a Matrix 4 film.
When will we see Matrix 4 in the theatres?
The real question that arises is when will we see The Matrix: Resurrections (as we should now get used to calling it) in the theatres? With Lana Wachowski still as the director, the movie is still set for a release on December 22. Moreover, due to Warner Bros.’s deal with HBO Max, we’ll still get to see it on the streaming service. However, I am quite sure that it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as watching it on that gigantic screen.
As far as the first looks are concerned, only the lucky ones at CinemaCon got to see the first trailer of The Matrix 4. Apart from the trailer and the revelation of the Matrix 4 title, both Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne Moss appeared in a ‘Making-of’ clip, where they talked about the significance of the original Matrix film. Reeves said:
The first Matrix felt like something beyond yourself… You’ll hear the sentence ‘The Matrix changed my life.’ I say, ‘Thank you, it changed mine too.
Similarly, Moss added, referring to the bullet-time sequence in the original film:
I never thought ‘Dodge this’ was going to be a big deal.
