The Matrix Resurrections: The Second Official Trailer Released

The Matrix saga is about to make a big return!

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss return as Neo and Trinity in the fourth installment of the Matrix saga. The legendary Matrix trilogy started back in 1999, with the original film written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski. The ensemble cast that included Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano brought one of the best sci-fi movies of all time. The Matrix won four Academy Awards. Two sequels followed; The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, both released in 2003.

Now, almost 20 years since the trilogy concluded, it’s time to go back to The Matrix. Keanu Reeves reprises the role of Neo, who is now living a life of an ordinary man in San Francisco, but once Morpheus offers him the red pill again, Neo will find himself back in the world of Matrix, which is now more insecure and dangerous than ever.

Check out the new trailer:

Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith reprise their roles from the original Matrix trilogy. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is replacing Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, and new cast members include Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Christina Ricci. While both Lana and Lilly Wachowski wrote and directed the original trilogy, Resurrections was written by Lana Wachowski, David Mitchell, and Aleksandar Hemon, and directed only by Lana Wachowski.

Production of the movie started in February 2020, but it was halted due to the pandemic. Lana Wachowski even planned to leave the project unfinished, but the cast insisted to finish it. The production resumed in August 2020, and it wrapped three months later.

The Matrix Resurrections will be released simultaneously in theaters and on HBOMax on December 22, 2021.
