The movie will be the fourth instalment in The Matrix franchise and will follow Neo played by Keanu Reeves
Warner Bros has announced the title of the fourth instalment of the Matrix series. Titled The Matrix: Resurrections, this will be the first Matrix movie since The Matrix: Revolutions in 2003. The title was announced and a trailer for the movie was also shown by the makers at CinemaCon on Tuesday.
The trailer that was showcased at CinemaCon featured Keanu Reeves as Neo, talking to Neil Patrick Harris in a near future San Francisco, before both Carrie Anne Moss’ Trinity and a young Morpheus also made appearances. The trailer also had some of the action sequences and gravity-defying stunts synonymous with the franchise.
Before the trailer was screened, Reeves and Moss explained how the movie changed their lives. “The first Matrix felt like something beyond yourself… You’ll hear the sentence ‘The Matrix changed my life.’ I say, ‘Thank you, it changed mine too,” said Reeves.
The makers of the movie have done well until now to keep information away from the public. The Matrix: Resurrections is directed by Lana Wachowski, who co-wrote and co-directed the previous three instalments of the now iconic franchise. Lily Wachowski, who co-wrote and co-directed the earlier movies, is not involved with Resurrection.
Along with Reeves as Neo, Moss as Trinity, Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe, Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian and Daniel Bernhardt as Agent Johnson, the movie will also feature Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Caldwell, Priyanka Chopra, Ellen Hoffman, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Toby Onwumere and Brian J. Smith.
