After years of waiting and anticipation, fans have finally laid eyes on the first trailer for The Matrix Resurrections! With the absolute perfect song choice of “White Rabbit” performed by Jefferson Airplane, viewers are transported back to the groundbreaking science-fiction franchise.
The trailer is filled to the brim with breathtaking visuals that have come to be associated with this series of films and continues to bring viewers back again and again. The preview brings us face to face with the one and only Neo himself, Keanu Reeves. From the look of things, Neo has somehow become trapped in the Matrix once again, back to being known as Thomas Anderson with no knowledge of his past.
The 3-minute video starts with Anderson sitting in a session with his therapist, played by Neil Patrick Harris, as he talks about a series of dreams he has been having that don’t exactly feel like “regular” dreams. We also spot a meeting between Anderson and the very familiar face of Trinity, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, but it seems the two don’t know each other. What follows is a series of beautiful cinematic scenes paired with action shots that will leave fans begging for more!
Along the way, we spot a few familiar characters beside some fresh faces that will help bring this new story to life. Jada Pinkett Smith returns to the series with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Christina Ricci, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas joining the team. The trailer ends with Groff saying the line “After all these years to be going back to where it all started, back to the Matrix.”
The Matrix Resurrections will be released in theaters and on HBO Max streaming service on December 22.
The visionary Lana Wachowski will be directing. Matrix Resurrections will be produced by both Village Roadshow Pictures and Venus Castina Productions. For updates on this and many other projects that are headed to theaters soon make sure to follow Nerds & Beyond!
