“We can’t see it, but we’re all trapped inside these strange repeating loops,” Keanu Reeves is told in a new trailer for “The Matrix Resurrections.” “This is the moment for you to show us what is real.” Set 20 years after the events of “The Matrix Revolutions,” the sci-fi sees Neo (Reeves) seizing the opportunity to show “what is real” when he opts to take the red pill offered to him by Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and reenters the world of the Matrix. Morpheus warns that if Neo wants to see Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss) again, he’ll need to “fight for her.”
Neo is up for the challenge. “She believed in me. It’s my turn to believe in her,” he explains. When the pair finally reunite, Trinity tells him, “Part of me feels like I have been waiting my whole life for you.”
Directed and co-written by Lana Wachowski, “The Matrix Resurrections” lands in theaters and on HBO Max December 22. The first three installments of the franchise collectively took in more than $1.6 billion worldwide. Wachowski co-directed the films with her sister, Lilly Wachowski.
