The NEW Matrix Trailer Gave Me F**king Goosebumps
Filmed in San Francisco over a year ago, The Matrix: Resurrections has finally dropped its trailer and it’s like taking a red pill full of nostalgia.
The trailer features Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Neil Patrick Harris playing the role of Neo’s therapist. “Am I crazy?” Neo asks. But just watch it, it’s dope.
When the original Matrix came out in the 90’s it was like a narcotic for sci-fi, action, and/or philosophy nerds, it was cinema that broke a mold and asked really fun, entertaining and even intelligent questions about reality, and the fabric of consciousness.
In the trailer for the fourth Matrix movie, you see ‘young Morpheus’ (played by newcomer Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) telling Neo that “it’s time to fly” while handing him a red pill. Apparently Lawrence Fishburne himself was not asked to reprise his role.
Fishburne told Collider when asked if he’s getting tired of being asked “Matrix 4” questions, “It would make sense that people would ask me that, so it doesn’t get old. I am not in the next ‘Matrix’ movie, and you’d have to ask Lana Wachowski (Director) why, because I don’t have an answer for that.”
The Matrix: Resurrections is written and directed by Lana Wachowski, who co-directed and co-wrote the first three Matrix films with her sister Lilly Wachowski.
Matrix is scheduled to arrive in theaters and on HBO Max’s ad-free plan on December 22nd. I for one, hope Alamo Drafthouse has figured its shit out by then, because I want to watch this in a full theater with a full beer.
