The Matrix Resurrections Trailer Wants to Free Your Mind (Again)

We were here almost 20 years after The Matrix Revolutions was over in 2003. The Matrix. You can expect to be back in a world full of sentinels and agents after years of speculation and rumors. Enjoy the spectacular trailer for The Matrix Resurrections.
The Wachowskis' trilogy of films put an end to the stories of Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), etc. However, Matrix Resurrections does exactly what it says: it resurrects the series. Lana Wachowski directs the film that brings back Reeves, Moss, and newcomers Yahya Abul-Mateen II (Neil Patrick Harris), Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff.


We will have a more detailed breakdown later today, but let's talk about our initial impressions. It is quite exciting to see that most of the material that was made available as a tease earlier in the week on the WhatIsTheMatrix site is not included in the trailer. There must be some sort of time loop, replay-of reality narrative going on here. Abdul-Mateen is playing a young Morpheus. Is he related to Morpheus or is he just another Morpheus-related character? These similarities seem to be intentional. Could this have happened before the original films, if he is a younger version? This is a story about Neo and Trinity, forever destined to save Zion. Is Zion still alive in this world? Who even controls the Matrix, anyway? There are many questions that we can ask about the world.

The trailer depicts a similar story to the original movie. Thomas Anderson becomes trapped in his technology-obsessed world and then starts to free himself, learn to fight, or maybe just relearning. He eventually becomes very powerful through his ability to control the Matrix computer world. The Oracle vibes are strong in the woman who has Alice in Wonderland. People are seen running up walls, fighting agents, and a little of everything. The main difference between the trailer and the original is that Keanu and Carrie-Anne Moss each are 20 years older.

This movie looks amazing, but it could also be a film that sparks a love for cinema in the same way as the original 1999 film. It's not an easy task, but the Matrix team is capable of it. The Matrix Resurrections will be available in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22. Don't forget to see our fall movie preview, which includes other genre films that will be released in the coming months.
