The Matrix Resurrections Gets First Trailer
We probably shouldn’t be surprised about a new entry into the Matrix story in 2021, awash as recent film history is in sequels and IP derived storytelling. If it’s not part of a franchise, it seems barely worth making, at least from the perspective of a big Hollywood studio. Still, if you came of age in the late 90s and early 00s, there’s a certain amount of glee to be felt as the trailer for The Matrix Resurrections unspools. This is the first Matrix film in eighteen years, after all, and while the latter two films in the trilogy never quite hit the exhilarating highs of the original, they seemed to tell a complete story when taken together. But here we are, back with red pills and blue, Neo and Trinity (it’s been awhile so we might need a refresher, but weren’t they both dead at the end of Revolutions?), and, of course, all the bullet time we can possibly handle. Check out the trailer here, and start counting down until December 22, when the fourth Matrix hits theaters.
