Of the most important 2021 blockbusters nonetheless on the discharge schedule, there’s one massive title that followers know little or no about: the much-anticipated fourth Matrix, which is presently scheduled to launch December 22 in theaters and on HBO Max. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are returning, together with a few new additions, however what the film known as or what it seems like have remained a complete thriller with just below 4 months left till launch. Till now.
You possibly can’t preserve that preserve that type of info from the people who find themselves going to display screen your film, which is why Warner Bros. introduced at CinemaCon 2021 that the movie, written and directed by Lana Wachowski, known as The Matrix: Resurrections. We additionally noticed the primary footage.
It begins with a really shiny wanting metropolis. A psychiatrist (Neil Patrick Harris) is sitting with a affected person named Thomas. Thomas is Reeves and he’s having issues. He says he’s having desires that aren’t fairly desires. We see him strolling down the road with the inexperienced Matrix code. “Am I loopy?” he asks. “We don’t say that,” the physician replies. Thomas is then sitting in a tub with a rubber duck on his head. He walks right into a espresso store and greets Trinity. “Have we met?” she asks as they shake palms.
We see that Thomas is taking blue tablets at dwelling. He seems into the sky and watches a bunch of birds flying. He’s attempting to investigate it. Subsequent he’s in an elevator with a bunch of individuals on their telephones and he seems up on the reflection of everybody taking a look at screens. About right here is the place the music “White Rabbit” begins taking part in.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II exhibits up as a personality who seems similar to Morpheus (shaved head, tiny sun shades) and affords Thomas a crimson capsule. He meets an individual with blue hair who has a tattoo of a rabbit. This all really feel very acquainted to us, the viewers, as a result of that is type of simply… The Matrix once more?
Neo and the particular person with blue hair stroll by means of a mirror. He’s in a café. Then he’s in a really serene dojo, which is on a lake, with Abdul-Mateen’s character. “The one factor that issues to you continues to be right here,” he says. “You’ll by no means surrender.” They start to carry out martial arts, and when Thomas hits Abdul-Mateen’s character exhausting within the chest and he flies out of the room.
Thomas and the blue-haired particular person are on a practice. A bullet from a sniper is shot from far-off and it flies by means of the practice towards them. Tons of motion scenes now minimize in a short time. We see the fields of individuals plugged into the matrix. Trinity being unplugged within the matrix. The blue haired particular person leaping over a automobile in gradual movement. Thomas holds bullets within the air. A helicopter fires a missile at Thomas and Trinity, and Thomas adjustments its course mid-air and shoots it into one other helicopter. Then, Thomas is in an workplace with a person in a enterprise swimsuit performed by Jonathan Groff. “You’re going again to the place it began,” he says. “Again to the Matrix.” Then the title: The Matrix, which fades away, after which Resurrections.
You very a lot get the sense that the whole lot that occurred earlier than with Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus is going on once more, simply with minor adjustments. Characters fated to stay the identical tales time and again. Or… one thing like that. We don’t actually know. However damned if it didn’t look as massive and action-packed as we’ve come to count on.
Co-starring Jada Pinkett Smith, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, and Jonathan Groff, The Matrix: Resurrections opens December 22.
