New ‘The Matrix Resurrections’ Trailer Has Neo And Trinity Fighting A Familiar Battle

It’s time to enter the Matrix once again! Later this month the anticipated sequel The Matrix Resurrections finally arrives. The original film, released way back in 1999 (!!!) was a cultural phenomenon that sparked debate about the nature of our reality, while also setting the tone for every sci-fi movie that would follow for years. Can this new sequel have the same level of impact?

A new trailer has arrived featuring never-before-seen footage of dynamic, high-flying, wall-flipping, slow-motion action. Keanu Reeves returns as Neo, only now he seems to have forgotten everything about what happened to him before. Carrie-Anne Moss also returns as Trinity, joined by Jada Pinkett-Smith as Niobe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as a younger version of Morpheus, plus Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and more.

Behind the camera is Lilly Wachowski, taking the reins for herself, joined by co-writers David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon.

The Matrix Resurrections opens in theaters and HBO Max on December 22nd.
