A new trailer for the highly anticipated new Matrix film The Matrix Resurrections has dropped and it appears a LOT has changed since the last three instalments – The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), and The Matrix Revolutions (2003).
While Keanu Reeves reprises his iconic role as Neo, it seems at the beginning of the film as though he has abandoned his knowledge about the Matrix by knocking back blue pills and seeing a therapist (Neil Patrick Harris) in order to live a normal life in this current reality.
During a meeting shown in the trailer, he asks Harris: “I’ve had dreams that weren’t just dreams. Am I crazy?”
The trailer also shows him reuniting with Trinity (Carrie Ann Moss), but it seems the pair no longer recognise each other. As the pair shake hands, she asks him: “Have we met?” as he shakes his head.
But, it simply wouldn’t be a Matrix movie without some intense action. And, according to the trailer, this happens when Neo eventually throws away his blue pills and takes the red pill instead to understand once more that his reality is an illusion.
Upon Neo rediscovering this revelation Yahya Abdul-Mateen II tells him: “Time to fly.”
There was no doubt that Neo would forget his impressive kung-fu training, as he is seen playing against what appears to be a younger version of Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) but this has not been confirmed.
