Twenty-two years after the first Matrix film, we return to the world with our understanding and neo that is not equal to every frame, every dialogue introduces a new mystery. The trailer for The Matrix Renaissances aka Matrix 4 has been released and this is what a Matrix fan expected from the franchise’s fourth film.
The Matrix Renaissance trailer begins with Keanu Reeves Neo in the therapist’s office and the life he lived before the film’s events is not clear in his memory. When he meets Carrie-Anne Mass Trinity, there is a spark. Lawrence Fishburn is not part of the film and Yahya Abdul-Matin II seems to be playing a similar role to Morpheus, or is it little Morpheus?
The trailer introduces some other world-action scenes that will not allow you to blink. Matrix films inspire the full style of science fiction, so the new film must be extraordinary to surpass its predecessors and the trailer seems to promise an experience outside the world.
Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra Jonas also appears in the trailer. With a copy of Alice in Wonderland, Neo appears to be pretending to be the bookstore owner helping her on her journey. Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris also appear in the trailer.
From the adrenaline-pumping chase sequences to stopping the air between bullets, hand-to-hand fights and changing the timeline, we get all the matrix nostalgia you get for everything you sign up for. “After all these years, to go back to where it all started … back to the matrix,” Jonathan Groff said, and we could not pump any more.
The original Matrix franchise is known for its mind-boggling understanding of reality, which is still a topic of discussion for moviegoers, and the Matrix resurrection seems to be taking that conversation even further.
The film was directed by Lana Wachowski. Wachowski directed the first three Matrix films but Lily did not return for the franchise’s fourth film. The Matrix Resurrections will be released on December 22nd.
