The trailer for The Matrix Resurrections is now available in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
As promised, Warner Bros. has released the first full-length trailer for The Matrix: Reloaded, which reintroduces both Keanu Reeves’ Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity to the virtual world where it all began. The Matrix Resurrections teaser hints at big roles for Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (who appears to be portraying a younger version of Morpheus, though it may simply be the same get-up) and Jessica Henwick, and reveals Neo and Trinity don’t recognize one other (sporting blue hair and looking completely unlike how we know her from Game of Thrones and Iron Fist).
The Matrix Resurrections will be released on HBO Max (in the United States) and in theaters worldwide the week before Christmas.
At the start of The Matrix Resurrections trailer, Thomas Anderson/ Neo (Reeves) is in a therapy session with Neil Patrick Harris when he spots a black cat that looks just like the one from The Matrix’s deja vu scene. He claims to have experienced dreams that weren’t simply dreams, and he worries whether he’s going insane.
They don’t use that word in here, according to Patrick Harris. In other scenes, Neo meets Trinity but she doesn’t recognize him, we get a peek of Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ character, and Abdul-Mateen II, who looks eerily like Morpheus, tells Neo, “Time to fly.” Later, Henwick informs Neo that if he wants the truth, he should follow him (is she now in the Trinity role? ), and they go through a door and appear to be in The Matrix.
Let’s Take A Look At The Trailer!
Before The Matrix Resurrections video shifts into action mode, there is a practice battle between Reeves and Abdul-Mateen II that mirrors the fight between Neo and Morpheus from The Matrix. Agents take over bodies, Neo is trapped in a building with the sprinklers running (again, like in The Matrix), Abdul-Mateen II fires weapons, and Trinity’s body is in one of the robot-built chambers.
In The Matrix Resurrections teaser, Henwick does a lot of amazing feats, but there’s also a showcase for Reeves, who blocks hundreds of bullets and even deflects a rocket onto a helicopter. Jonathan Groff closes The Matrix Resurrections teaser with a fourth-wall-breaking line: “To be returning back to where it all began after all these years.” “Welcome back to the Matrix.”
Lana Wachowski, one half of the Wachowskis who directed The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions, returns as director on The Matrix Resurrections behind the scenes. Lily Wachowski, who is now working on Work in Progress, will not be a part of The Matrix Resurrections.
Lana is also a co-writer on the fourth Matrix film, alongside David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas, and Aleksandar Hemon, author of The Lazarus Project, who collaborated with the Wachowskis on the Sense8 finale. The cinematographer is John Toll (Cloud Atlas, Jupiter Ascending). The editor is Joseph Jett Sally (Work in Progress). The composers for The Matrix Revolutions are Johnny Klimek and Tom Tykwer (Cloud Atlas, Babylon Berlin).
Along with Grant Hill and James McTeigue, Lana is a producer on the fourth Matrix film. Executive producers were Bruce Berman, Jesse Ehrman, Garrett Grant, Terry Needham, and Michael Salven.

The Matrix Resurrections was shot on location in Chicago and San Francisco, as well as on the Babelsberg Studio’s stages in Berlin.
