It’s time to go down the rabbit hole—again. Feast your eyes on the stunning new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, which arrives in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max December 22.
We don’t have a synopsis, but things have clearly changed in a big way. We’re no longer in a simulation of 20th Century New York; the trailer for The Matrix Resurrections is set in 21st Century San Francisco. Of course, we have to question if anything we’re seeing is actually “real”…
Lana Wachowski directs The Matrix Resurrections from a screenplay co-scribed by David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon. Returning cast members including Keanu Reeves, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Carrie Ann-Moss. New faces to the franchise include Christina Ricci, Priyanka Chopra, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, and Neil Patrick Harris.
Lana and Lilly Wachowski launched The Matrix franchise in 1999. The story of a dystopian society that turns out to be a computer simulation struck a chord and became an instant hit. The Matrix was followed by The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, both released in 2003.
