The moment that we have all been waiting for is finally here! The Matrix: Resurrections is finally here, that is the first official trailer of course. I’m sure we all so dearly want to see the entire movie right now, but for that we’ll have to wait for a while. However, The Matrix 4 trailer has given us quite an idea of what to expect from the movie. And there’s a lot of Deja vu involved.
The Matrix is finally returning after 20 years!
It was almost 20 years ago when we last saw Keanu Reeves as Neo, taking his final breath and forging peace between the machines and humans in Matrix: Revolutions. Since then, fans have rewatched the trilogy multiple times, along with consuming all the canon content, like books, video games, and comics. But now, it’s time for the real deal. The Matrix 4 is finally upon us and there’s a lot in the movie that’s different, but familiar both at the same time. And we’re not just talking about Trinity (Carrie Anne Moss) and Neo, but loads of other things too that we’ll get to see in The Matrix: Resurrections.
There were tons of theories floating around on the internet regarding what to expect in the movie. Moreover, Warner Bros. also gave some lucky fans an early glimpse of The Matrix: Resurrections official trailer at CinemaCon too. And if that wasn’t enough, they launched a dope website called whatisthematrix.com to keep the fans on the edge as well. But now, we have finally seen the trailer and can make our own judgements.
What can we make of The Matrix: Resurrections from the trailer?
Immediately, we see Neo in The: Matrix Resurrections trailer, but not self conscious about his identity and still calling himself Thomas Anderson. Neil Patrick Haris is his therapist, who just feels like a form of control for the machines. Then, we see a familiar journey that Neo takes, taking loads of blue pills prescribed by the therapist, and then ultimately taking the red pill offered to him by someone who is likely Morpheus (Yahya Abdul Mateen II). Neo also encounters Trinity but can’t identify her. We then proceed to see Neo embark on a similar journey as he did in the original 1999 The Matrix, realising his purpose. But, this time it looks like he is on steroids.
Remember how Neo used to stop bullets in mid-air? Well, now he can divert rockets as per his will. Yeah, that kind of makes the original trilogy seem cute. But, how the movie will actually pan out is yet to be seen. For that, we’ll have to wait for The Matrix: Resurrections to release on December 22, 2021.
