Neo Takes The Red Pill In First Trailer For ‘The Matrix Resurrections’

Sep 9, 2021

It’s time to go back to the Matrix. Almost two decades after the trailblazing sci-fi film franchise concluded with 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions, Keanu Reeves and company are back for one more trip behind the veil of mankind’s virtual prison.

In the trailer, Neo (Reeves) is once again living inside the Matrix as Thomas Anderson. He’s in therapy, concerned about strange dreams he’s been having. He’s on a regular regimen of blue pills, and neither he nor his former compatriot Trinity (a returning Carrie-Anne Moss) has any memory of each other or of their roles in bringing down the Matrix. This all changes, of course, when Neo re-takes the red pill, given to him by what appears to be Morpheus — or a younger model, anyway, as the character is now played by Watchmen’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. After that, all bets are off, as the trailer explodes with the kind of wild action we’d expect from the franchise, with flying martial arts battles and slow-motion gunfights galore. The Matrix Resurrections is directed by franchise co-creator Lana Wachowski and is scheduled to arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22.
