Keanu Reeves returns to the sci-fi action franchise that defined his career in 'The Matrix Resurrections.' – Sep 9, 2021

Feed your head with the long-awaited Matrix Resurrections trailer, which dropped Thursday morning to much fanfare.

To the tune of Jefferson Airplane’s psychedelic White Rabbit, the trailer teases what’s to come in the fourth Matrix movie, starring Keanu Reeves as “the One,” Neo. There’s a lot here for Matrix fans to unpack: the red and blue pills, black cats, fast-paced fights, explosions, defiance of gravity.

We even catch a glimpse of what appears to be a young Morpheus (previously played by Laurence Fishburne, now played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), telling Neo that “it’s time to fly” as he hands him a red pill.

“After all these years, to be going back to where it all started: back to the Matrix,” says another new addition to the franchise, Jonathan Groff, as the trailer comes to a close.

The Matrix Resurrections is written and directed by Lana Wachowski, who co-directed and co-wrote the first three Matrix films along with her sister, Lilly.
