The first trailer for Warner Bros' upcoming Matrix sequel, Matrix Resurrections, premiered on Thursday, September 9, 2021. The fourth film in the Matrix franchise will release on December 22, 2021. This new sequel comes over 18 years after the last film dropped.
The trailer shows us Neo from the original trilogy (played by Keanu Reeves) talking to a therapist (played by Neil Patrick Harris). Harris' character refers to Neo as Thomas, indicating that Neo is in his blue pill form.
Visually it looks stunning. One of the biggest issues I had with the second and third movies was that the CGI just wasn't there. It looks like modern technology is catching up with the vision The Wachowskis had for the franchise and I'm excited to see that play out on screen.
We get to see some familiar faces like Carrie-Anne Moss' Trinity, as well as new with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II playing Morpheus. I'm here for all the Broadway studs in the cast. I mentioned NPH before, the trailer closes with Jonathan Groff hitting us with the title drop "after all these years to be going back to where it started. Back to the Matrix."
