The Matrix Resurrections — out later this week in India and on HBO Max — brings back the popular Matrix franchise nearly two decades after it ended. The new Matrix movie features some of the original cast including Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith. New faces part of the cast of The Matrix Resurrections include Neil Patrick Harris and Jonathan Groff, while Priyanka Chopra Jonas is also part of the movie.
The new Matrix movie was announced back in 2019, and was expected to arrive in May 2021. However, like many much-awaited TV series (like Netflix’s The Witcher season 2) or movies (like Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), the movie was delayed by a few months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
From The Matrix Resurrections to Spider-Man: No Way Home, What to Watch in December
We’ve been treated to two trailers so far, and so far, we know that Neo (or Thomas Anderson) is back in the Matrix and teams up with Trinity. With Neo skipping his medication (the iconic blue pills are also back) he soon realises that he needs to take a closer look at his surroundings. Humans are still being used as “batteries”. We don’t know if Morpheus (originally played by Laurence Fishburne) will feature in the movie, but speculation suggests that a character played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II could be the one guiding Neo this time.
It will be interesting to see where characters like Neo and Trinity come in, especially considering that both of them were clearly killed off in the last movie, although the final trailer gives us a hint. Similarly, the Oracle says at the end of The Matrix Revolutions that she believes that Neo might make an appearance again, despite his apparent demise. The last movie also showed the salvation of humanity with the machines allowing people to leave the Matrix. But we’re expecting to see that peace breached, as part of the plot of The Matrix Resurrections.
There’s no Wachowski sister duo this time, as Lana Wachowski has directed the movie without sister Lily. The latter currently has her hands full with Showtime’s Work in Progress, and reportedly wasn’t keen on going back to the Matrix franchise. With the help of authors Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell on board as co-writers for the film, it looks like The Matrix Resurrections could be a very interesting movie.
