THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS Trailer Teases a Particular Kind of Deja Vu

The legendary CGI and Hong Kong Wire-Fu inspired film series The Matrix hardly needs any introduction. However, for the uninitiated, the series so far is a multimedia franchise revolving around the story of a man who comes to be known as Neo. Neo lives in a virtual world controlled by a machine empire, harvesting raw energy from human bodies in massive fields of pods. Neo has the unexplainable ability to manipulate the Matrix around him in ways that make him into a sort of superhuman, finally meeting his story’s end by defeating a rogue AI that threatened both humanity and the machines. We were to believe that this was the end of Neo. But as always with the Matrix, nothing is what it seems, and the latest trailer for The Matrix Resurrections very quickly reminds us of this fact.

Picking up after an unknown amount of time passes from Neo’s “Death”, we rejoin Neo who has no apparent recollection of the events of the previous films and games. Quickly, however, Neo is thrust back into the spotlight as it seems humanity has need of him once again. Faces, familiar and otherwise, begin to appear to him, and Neo must quickly sort friend from foe as new threats arise.

Watch the latest trailer below! The Matrix Resurrections is scheduled to release December 22 in theatres and on HBO Max, where it will be exclusive to the ad free plan for the first 31 days from release.
