Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the upcoming The Matrix Resurrections.
It seems as though both Neo and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) have forgotten the events of the trilogy as the trailer opens with Reeves going by his original name of Thomas Anderson.
He tells his therapist (Neil Patrick Harris) that he’s having “dreams that weren’t just dreams”. Thomas is taking prescription blue pills (uh-oh) and he runs into Trinity at a coffee shop, but they don’t remember each other.
Luckily enough, Neo soon meets Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s character, who looks like a young Morpheus, and he gives Neo a red pill. “Time to fly,” he tells Neo and it seems he goes through similar events to the first movie, such as fighting Morpheus (possibly) in a dojo.
This is a new, upgraded Neo though as the final moments of the thrilling trailer show that he can not only stop bullets but redirect full-blown missiles to stop them from hitting him. Woah.
It is the fourth instalment in The Matrix film series. Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith reprise their roles from previous films in the series.
