“The Matrix Resurrections” Trailer gives us the first taste of Keanu Reeves’ sci-fi comeback

The Matrix Resurrections

The first The Matrix Resurrections trailer is here. Featuring the return of Keanu Reeves’ Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity, and a whole host of fresh faces.

This Lana Wachowski-directed follow-up has everyone tumbling down like it’s 1999.

The trailer will certainly have you questioning what’s real and what’s not. While it focuses on the path Neo must tread, there are sprinklings of familiar elements that seem slightly…off.

Neo and Trinity aren’t the only Matrix returnees in the cast. Jada Pinkett-Smith is back as Niobe, Lambert Wilson is returning to play The Merovingian, while Daniel Bernhardt is reprising his role as Agent Johnson. Hugo Weaving has already confirmed he isn’t returning to play Agent Smith in The Matrix: Resurrections.

“The Matrix Resurrections” Trailer

Newcomers in The Matrix: Resurrections include the blue-haired Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), and Yayha Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen). Jonathan Groff, Priyanka Chopra Jones, and Christina Ricci are also part of the cast.

The trailer pieces most of those fragments together, while also leaving just enough mystery within to have us craving more.

The original Matrix movie came out in 1999, and the first two sequels were both released in 2003.
