(Original Post) The day many genre fans have been waiting for is almost here as a first look trailer for the highly anticipated Matrix Resurrections is set to download this Thursday. The announcement came via a teaser that hit this miring which you can see below and the question is asked once again…the blue pill or the red pill? It’s time to choose your reality and Thursday can’t get here fast enough.
To go along with the teaser and to wet your collective appetites even more, Warner Bros released a first look image of Keanu Reeves himself as Neo and he definitely is looking like Baba Yaga!
Trailer footage debuted at CinemaCon that shows Reeves’ character Thomas Anderson, his name before he becomes Neo, meeting Trinity at a coffee shop and the two do not recognize one another. Reeves is sporting a look similar to his John Wick persona and then the footage shows a young Morpheus handing Anderson a red pill and saying that it is “time to fly.”
Keanu Reeves returns with Carrie Anne-Moss and they are joined by returning cast member Jada Pinkett Smith, who are reprising their roles as Neo, Trinity, and Niobe. Newcomers include Christina Ricci, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Toby Onwumere, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is said to be playing a younger version of Morpheus.
Plot details are scarce still but with the title and footage description, it most likely will deal with Anderson bring resurrected and becoming reacquainted with the world of The Matrix.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for Thursday’s big reveal!
