Although the fourth Matrix film starring Keanu Reeves starts in theaters in December, there has not yet been a single image from the science fiction sequel, let alone a title. At the CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Warner Bros. presented the project in detail for the first time. Get ready for The Matrix Resurrections.
The first Matrix film with Keanu Reeves in the 4K version
There was a leak a few months ago that revealed the title. Now we have the official confirmation. But it turns out to be much more exciting Unveiling of the first trailer. This has not yet been published on the Internet. Of the Hollywood Reporter and Deadline however, provide detailed descriptions of the material shown.
This is shown in the first trailer for Matrix 4 with Keanu Reeves
The trailer for The Matrix Resurrections has many moments that are reminiscent of the first part of the series. We have summarized the most important things.
- Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) is in therapy at the beginning. He tells his therapist (Neil Patrick Harris) that he strange dreams that feel like they’re more than dreams. He asks if he’s crazy.
- Similar to the first Matrix film, Thomas senses that something is wrong with the world around him. But he has no memories of his life as a Neo.
- He later meets Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) in a coffee shop. The two exchange ideas and shake hands. However, they do not recognize each other.
- All people around Thomas stick to their smartphones. In one scene in an elevator, he’s the only one who isn’t looking at a screen.
- Thomas runs into a young man (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) who Morpheus resembles and give him a red pill. Later they fight against each other, just like Neo and Morpheus in the training simulation in the first part.
- Particularly exciting: There is a shot in which Thomas or Neo looks into a mirror and one older version of yourself discovered.
- We don’t just see Keanu Reeves as Thomas Anderson, however. In the second half of the trailer, he maneuvers himself as a Neo furious action scenes. Apparently he even has new powers – he controls a missile with his mind.
- In addition, the trailer comes up with an excellent choice of music: White Rabbit from Jefferson Airplane underlines the return to the matrix.
It looks like The Matrix Resurrections the most important stations of the original once again. Neo has to find out first that he lives in the Matrix. He meets mysterious characters who show him the way into the real world. And who is being trained so that they can move through the matrix like a superhero.
Is Matrix 4 just a remake of the original?
That sounds good without the right pictures pretty unimaginative at. However, it is difficult to imagine that director Lana Wachowski, one of the most exciting filmmakers in Hollywood, will return to the Matrix universe after more than 15 years just to make the film she has already made (with her sister Lilly).
Keanu Reeves has stressed several times in the past that he was from the Matrix 4 script was very pleased. We can certainly expect a few surprises. In addition, this is only a description of the trailer – everything looks very different in motion.
The Matrix Resurrections starts on December 23, 2021 in German cinemas.
