We’ve got a little bit of a Matrix 4 teaser through the official interactive fan site which you can find here, and so far this is all we have – although technically there are actually 2 teasers depending on whether you choose the blue pill or the red pill… It doesn’t really matter because after less than a minute of being teased you can click the other pill!
So what do we learn from the Matrix Resurrections teasers?
Firstly we learn that it we need to go back and watch the series again because can you believe that the Matrix – what I think is easily one of the most ground breaking sci-fi movies of all time, was released WAY back in 1999 and it is coming up to 20 years since we last saw a new Matrix movie (both released in 2003).
What else we see is glimpses of the cast and where these characters might fit in to the story, with some familiar faces also being accompanied by some very familiar effects and scenes. I get the feeling that as much as being a new addition to the franchise, which I hope will elevate it and steer it away from the philosophical mumbo jumbo of the second 2 films and back to the ass kicking awesomeness of the first installment, we will get a boat load of nostalgia thrown in our faces!
Reprising their roles as Neo, Trinity and Niobe, we have Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Jada Pinkett Smith returning and also see glimpses of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and know from official sources that Lambert Wilson, Daniel Bernhardt, Neil patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Erendira Ibarra, Priyanka Chopra, Brian Smith, Ellen Hollman, Christina Ricci, Jonathan Groff and Andrew Caldwell will be joining the cast. It looks like an exciting and fresh cast to me, and I can’t wait to see where they take the franchise, especially as we have one of the Wachowski sisters at the helm in the form of Lana.
Who’s excited to see Keanu in action, looks like John Wick has joined the Matrix! I swear this man is like a good spiced rum… he gets better with age and I bet he smells slightly smokey and sweet!
A full trailer should be dropping later today!
