Neo and Trinity are back for one more fight over the fate of reality itself in the second trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, the long-awaited fourth installment in The Matrix series.
The new film finds Keanu Reeves’ Neo back in his manicured life as Thomas Anderson in the simulated world of the Matrix until he’s once again offered the red pill. After re-awakening to the truth, Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity are finally able to reunite, and they join up with a new group of hackers/revolutionaries working to take down the Matrix.
The latest trailer for Resurrections doesn’t offer much in the way of plot specifics, although there’s plenty of sci-fi action and the stakes certainly seem high when Trinity suggests Neo has a life-altering choice to make, but he can’t even make it. The clip also toys with one of the The Matrix’s favorite themes — deja vu and memory — slipping in some clips from the original films, and ending with Neo beating back an agent and quipping, “I still know kung fu.”
Along with Reeves and Moss, The Matrix Resurrections stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Neil Patrick Harris. The film opens in theaters and arrives on HBO Max Dec. 22 (it’ll only be available to stream for 30 days following its theatrical release).
