The fourth instalment of The Matrix franchise also stars Priyanka Chopra, Carrie Anne Moss and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II
After weeks of waiting, fans finally got a first glimpse of the fourth instalment of The Matrix. An innovative interactive teaser for the movie lets the viewer choose between the classic red pill or blue pill, thus revealing footage from the much-awaited movie starring Keanu Reeves as Neo.
After 18 years since we last entered the simulation, the teaser for The Matrix Resurrections wastes no time before plugging the audience back into the simulated reality. The teaser, which can be viewed at www.whatisthematrix.com, allows the viewer to pick either the blue pill or the red pill, with the former letting you stick to your reality, while the latter takes you down the rabbit hole.
Viewers who click on the blue pill hear a voice over from Neil Patrick Harris, which says, “You’ve lost your capacity to discern reality from fiction,” before asking you to accept your reality. The red pill takes you to a voiceover by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II telling you how far from reality what you see is. In both cases, the teaser reveals the time you are watching the trailer, adding a touch of The Matrix to the teaser.
The two choices also reveal quick cuts of scenes from the upcoming movie. From reality-bending action to strange machines, the teaser includes some intriguing shots, which keep changing as you rewatch the teasers.
The makers have also announced the date and time for the much-awaited trailer of The Matrix Resurrections. The trailer will drop today at 6:30 pm IST, as shared by Priyanka Chopra on her social media.
The actress is also part of the sci-fi thriller, directed by Lana Wachowski. She will join Carrie Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, Daniel Bernhardt, Abdul-Mateen II and Andrew Caldwell.
