After a long wait, the trailer for The Matrix Resurrections hit the net last week and fans were thrilled to see the promise of a return to the original recipe that blew their minds in 1999. Director and writer Lana Wachowski seems to have hit the fangs. as she did The matrix, but the real proof is in Keanu Reeve’s reaction after screening the final piece. Lana conveys this about the experience.
“We showed Keanu’s film and he was really amazed by it and he said something that was typical of Keanu where it’s incredibly insightful. And he just sits there and you don’t expect any amazing revelation to come out of it at that moment, like a casual glow. And he just sat there and said, “Twenty years ago you told a story that described the next twenty years and the problems of the nature of digital, virtual life and how it would affect us and how we think about it, and he gave us a framework so we could think about him and talk about him. And you took the same character and the same stories and the same things, and somehow you succeeded for the next twenty years. And he was like, “How did you do that?”
Reactions reverberated around the world:
The Matrix Resurrections trailer has been viewed nearly 8 million times on Twitter alone. What usually accompanies a sequel (triquel? Background?) To a favorite classic is the disappointment that the film failed to return and deliver the new and exciting experience felt on your first turn during the trip. Well, sigh with relief. People, including Keanu Reeves, spoke.
While we have a bunch of new characters introduced in the trailer, starting from the place where the first film stopped with our original duo Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss), seemingly forgetting the events of the films sandwiched between them, maybe the most influential in providing this magical combination of nostalgia and originality. If you’ve incredibly missed it, check out the trailer here.
I would usually describe the plot here, but it is kept strictly secret. From the trailer we can assume that although Neo and Trinity did not survive in the last installment, they return, without a memory of their past lives, nor do they know each other. We see Neo, whose name is Thomas Anderson, tells his therapist that he has “dreams that were not just dreams” and has also taken prescribed blue pills.
Together with our heroic duo, the cast can boast Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Hanwick, Christina Ritchie, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Yahya Abdul-Matin II as Young Morpheus, Jonathan Groff, Jada Pinkett Smith and Daniel Bernhard as Agent Johnson. Mitchell, Alexander Hemon and, of course, Lana Wachowski . The Matrix: Resurrections hits theaters and HBO Max on December 22nd. This news appeared in CinemaBlend.
