First Look At Matrix Resurrections Starring Keanu Reeves As Neo

First Look At Matrix Resurrections Starring Keanu Reeves As Neo

Keanu Reeves is returning as Neo in a new reboot of The Matrix, 22 years after the release of the original.

Over 22 years after the release of The Matrix, a hybrid reboot-sequel will see Keanu Reeves reprising his role as Neo once again.

The long-awaited trailer for the fourth film in The Matrix franchise finally arrived today, introducing fans to Neo (Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) as they try to work out what's happening in the world they live in.

Watch the trailer below.

The new movie, entitled The Matrix: Resurrections, offers long-time fans a chance to see all the nostalgic elements that they missed from the originals as well as plenty of new stunts and a shifting timeline that will have everyone questioning what's real.

In the trailer, Jonathan Groff, who is a newcomer to the franchise in an undisclosed role, says: "After all these years, to be going back to where it all started... back to the Matrix," before trailing off, suggesting that fans will not be disappointed by this new addition.

The film is written and directed by Lana Wachowski, who co-directed and co-wrote the first three Matrix films with Lilly Wachowski.

The trailer also shows the iconic red and blue pills, which you'll remember can either mean a life lived in ignorance or opening yourself up to the truth.

Both Reeves and Moss are returning to the same roles that they played in 1999, while original cast members Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus, and Hugo Weaving, who played Agent Smith, will not be appearing in the new movie.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Chrtinia Ricci, Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Graham, and Jessica Henrik are also appearing in the film, but their roles are still unnamed.

Despite delays to filming which meant the original scheduled release date of May 2021 had to be pushed back to 2022, filmmakers have now said The Matrix: Resurrections will be released in theatres on December 22, the perfect film for the Christmas season, with no sign of any more changes.

Despite releasing a trailer, the studio has not yet released a synopsis - so its anyone's guess as to how the plot will come together.

The trailer suggests that Neo and Trinity are unaware of who the other is or even what the Matrix is.

We cannot wait for this!
