Red pill or blue pill? It does not matter, either way, Keanu Reeves looks amazing in the trailer of the upcoming 'The Matrix: Resurrection film.
The fourth installment welcomes back the actor alongside Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, however, the plot twist here is that neither remember their past, not even each other. I’ve had dreams that weren’t just dreams...Am I crazy?” says Thomas Anderson a.k.a Neo to his therapist who is portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris. “We don’t use that word in here,” he says.
Just to refresh your memory, Neo was a computer programmer who by chance discovered The Matrix, the simulated virtual reality used by artificially intelligent machines in the future to keep humans docile while they farmed them for energy. In the three previous movies, Neo became 'The One' a prophesied hero with the ability to manipulate the world of the Matrix. Sadly this time, our hero does not remember anything about this and when he runs into his love interest Trinity they look at each other like total strangers. “Have we met?”
“If you want the truth, Neo, you’re going to have to follow me,” says a new character, played by “Game of Thrones” actor Jessica Henwick, who appears to be another soldier in the fight against the machines. Along with Keanu Reeves and Moss, the cast includes Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, and Daniel Bernhardt, all of whom are reprising roles from the original trilogy, as well as series newcomers Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Christina Ricci, and Jonathan Groff.
While we watch the trailer we can hear the Jefferson Airplane song "White Rabbit" and we can think that the song describes exactly what is happening since the trailer also shows Priyanka Chopra's character reading a copy of Alice in Wonderland, while Jessica Henwick sports a rabbit tattoo. Why a white rabbit? If you can't recall this you seriously need to watch again the trilogy. Neo received a message to "follow the white rabbit" as the first step in his journey. That ended up being a woman with a white rabbit tattoo.
"The only thing that matters to you is still here," he says. "I know that's why you're fighting, and why you'll never give up," says Yahya Abdul-Mateen II coming into the scene. Despite his role has not been disclosed, by the look of it we can assume he is portraying a young Morpheus (Honestly, just look at that pair of sunglasses)
This sequel comes 18 years later after the last time we saw the last Matrix movie. It is directed by Lana Wachowski without her sister, Lilly, and it will mark an expansion to the story of Neo and Trinity "that ventures back into the Matrix and even deeper down the rabbit hole," according to an official description. "A mind-bending new adventure with action and epic scale, it's set in a familiar yet even more provocative world where reality is more subjective than ever a
