The Matrix Resurrections new trailer is here and it adds more mystery than giving fans details of what’s really happening. It revealed looping ideas, scenes, and moments from the original trilogy. With all the brand new fight sequences and imagery of from the latest trailer, there’s still one thing for sure — Neo (Keanu Reeves) still knows kung fu.
In the new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, the action scenes jump between the digital world inside the Matrix and the post-apocalyptic world outside while mixed with clips from the first three films. The trailer doesn’t have a lot of dialogue that gives away or hints at the new plot, but it seems that the main focus will be Neo trying to find a way to reunite with Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) in the real world outside the digital world. The last film showed both characters die at the end.
Jada Pinkett Smith Returns In Latest Matrix Resurrections Trailer
Don’t let the familiar faces fool you to thinking this film is just a repeat of the past events in the first three films. Maybe that’s what the Matrix wants you to believe.
“It’s easy to forget how much noise the Matrix pumps into your head,” says the older version of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Niobe in the new trailer. “Something else makes the same kind of noise: War.”
Smith’s Niobe was not in the original 1999 film, but her human rebel character was both in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Some fans may even remember Niobe best as a character in the tie-in video game Enter the Matrix.
There was a time where rumors surrounded Warner Bros. that they would produce a new movie without the Wachowskis, who created and directed the original trilogy. Smith recently told Entertainment Weekly how excited she was to work with director Lana Wachowski on the new movie.
“The Matrix was a revolutionary film and giving that legacy to someone else I think [would have been a] horrendous mistake,” Smith told EW.
The Matrix Resurrections starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith and more is set to premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on December 22nd. Watch the new trailer below:
