After almost two decades since the last The Matrix movie, the full trailer for the fourth installment The Matrix Resurrections just dropped much to the excitement of fans of the franchise.
The almost three-minute long clip features Keanu Reeves in what seems to be his Thomas Anderson persona, before he became The One known as Neo. Also seen in the clip is Carrie-Anne Moss who played Trinity in the first three films.
The previous installment saw Trinity fatally wounded and a badly-wounded Neo being carried off by the machines so fans will no doubt be eager to know how the “present day” Neo and Trinity are back in the matrix.
Lana Wachowski returns to direct The Matrix Resurrections, based on the characters she created with her sister Lilly. Collectively known as The Wachowskis, the duo were reportedly inspired by Japanese anime, in particular Ghost In The Shell, and Hong Kong action films.
The first three The Matrix movies were known for their groundbreaking special effects and action sequences as well as complex storylines. Visuals like the “bullet time” effect and the green matrix code were just some of the things The Matrix came to be known for.
