The Final Trailer for The Matrix Resurrections Wants Us to Remember What Is Real The Matrix Resurrections tickets are now on sale in the United States
The final trailer for The Matrix Resurrections is now available in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The new teaser establishes how Keanu Reeves’ Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity — both of whom died in 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions — are resurrected. It also confirms Jonathan Groff’s character (he talks and acts like a fresh version of Agent Smith) and teases how the tale will parallel the events of the first Matrix film. The next Matrix film is clearly aiming for a cyclical tale that will extensively reference the events of the 1999 original. The Matrix Resurrections will be released on HBO Max (in the United States) and in theatres worldwide the week before Christmas.
At the outset of the new The Matrix Resurrections video, Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) explains, “We can’t see it, but we’re all stuck inside these odd repeating cycles.” Many scenes from the fourth Matrix film are interwoven with scenes from the first Matrix film. Before Morpheus’ voice returns, he says, “But it’s time for you to show us what is genuine,” as if he’s speaking to the filmmakers. Bugs (Henwick) thinks this is such déjà vu — which Matrix enthusiasts may interpret as a Matrix glitch — and then adds, “Perhaps this isn’t the storey we believe it is.”
Morpheus then discusses how Neo was duped despite knowing it was a lie, before Telma Hopkins’ new persona echoes what we saw in The Matrix Resurrections teaser on Sunday.
“It’s easy to lose track of how much noise the Matrix pours into your skull. That kind of noise is made by something else. War.” In the new The Matrix Resurrections trailer, there are a lot of action images before Neo talks about how he needs to believe in Trinity this time, considering how she believed in him all those years before. In the Matrix, we get another peek of Neo’s new abilities, as well as Groff appearing to be a new Agent Smith. The teaser concludes with Trinity discussing a dream she had and how it ended with her bloodied and standing on a roof opposite Neo.
