It’s not a dream. It’s completely real. It’s the Matrix. You heard that one right. It’s the Matrix. How many of you are familiar with that name? And how many of you just got goosebumps as I mentioned it? I don’t even need to guess to know the percentage of people who did. And for those of you who didn’t, I would implore you to explore the Matrix as soon as possible. It is just something that you need to see and experience for yourself. There is nothing quite like it, and probably never going to be. It is just one of its kind. Matrix blew the world away when it first came out, and no one ever expected it to ever return again. Wait, did I just give it away? That’s right. The Matrix is coming back with The Matrix Resurrections. And we’re talking all about it.
Recently, Warner Bros revealed the trailer for the upcoming installment in the Matrix series, which is Matrix 4. Fans of the franchise had been deliberating on the fate of the franchise for a long time but no one actually thought that it was going to return after such a long time. When it was finally announced, it caused a huge uproar in the Science Fiction community, with fans going crazy over the return of their favorite franchise. And since the announcement, the trailer has been much awaited. And now Warner Bros has finally revealed it with the title for the next film: The Matrix Resurrections. The trailer was previously showcased in Las Vegas on August 24, and then later released to the public last week.
This is a big announcement as we are now aware of a lot of what the Matrix Resurrections is going to feature and what it entails for fans of the series. So without much further discussion, let’s get right into Matrix Resurrections.
The Matrix is one of the most mind boggling franchises on Earth, and really has your mind twisted in ways that you can’t fathom. Another such movie is Y: The Last Man Is Nothing You Can Imagine. Y: The Last Man is not something that you might expect going into it. And it is something I assure you that you will like. So check it out right away!
The Matrix Resurrections: Trailer First Look
The new trailer for the movie brings back Keanu Reeves as his signature character, in the lead, once again. Reprising her role is Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, and we also get to see an aged Neil Patrick Harris who plays the role of Neo’s therapist. Now, the subject that is the talk of the town right now is Morpheus. For those who remember the first Matrix, Morpheus is one of the main characters in the series, and the fans are going crazy over his disappearance.
The new trailer for the movie shows a seemingly younger version of the character played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, but we don’t yet have a confirmation on whether this is true. It was suspected that Laurence Fishburne would be reprising his role as the charismatic Morpheus, but the actor recently revealed that he wasn’t involved in the Matrix Resurrections at all.
So it is quite a shock for the fans who expected Morpheus to be played by Fishburne. But it seems like the old Morpheus isn’t going to be a part of the fourth Matrix movie at all, no matter how much we loved him in the original trilogy. The new trailer shows the young Morpheus giving Neo a choice he was given once before, to choose between the red pill and the blue pill, which is a direct reference to the original trilogy.
Coming to the specifics of the trailer, there is a lot of ground to cover here. For starters, the trailer showcases the same old action that we are used to seeing from the Matrix, but better. We get to see glimpses of the same old gut wrenching action sequences, but again, better. And the camera effects which changed the world when Matrix came out are on full display here. So technology is something that is again at the forefront of the Matrix production. And I just love it. All of it.
You get all of what you want. The jaw dropping fights, black creatures, bullets hanging around in mid air as Neo stops them, and all that you can ever want from a Matrix film. Neo is again pulled into the Matrix, yet again following a woman, in his quest for the truth. It is all the standard Matrix affair, which is my way of saying, it is pretty damn lit and not a standard affair at all! Reality meets imagination, and nothing is real, while everything is real. Timelines blend, and we are left to ponder over what we just saw. And it is nothing short of mind boggling.
The aged Anne-Carrie and Keanu seem to be doing a phenomenal job, and I’m really excited to see the effect time has had on the team. Lana Wachowski has a lot riding on her back on this one, so it had better be really good.
