In the brand new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections Jessica Henwick‘s blue-haired badass character says “Maybe this isn’t the story we think it is” — thus peeling back the layers of what Lana Wachowski-directed revival of the groundbreaking sci-fi franchise that had everyone asking “Would you take the blue pill or red pill?”
The new trailer gives us a blueprint of the storyline as it is clear that this is some sort of “loop” of the original Matrices but in a different form. I am guessing some sort of multi-verse since that is all the rage now. Keanu Reeves is back as Neo as he navigates a new world with familiar-but-not-so-familiar faces like Yahya Abdul Mateen II‘s Morpheus and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity.
Watch the trailer below.
Now this is gonna be a thinker.
The new installment of the groundbreaking franchise follows the third film The Matrix Revolutions which was released in 2003. Wachowski co-wrote the film alongside David Mitchell & Aleksander Hemon. As you saw in the trailer Jonathan Groff and Jada Pinkett Smith pop up in the film. Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Ricci, Telma Hopkins, Eréndira Ibarra, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, and Brian J. Smith also appear.
The film was produced by Grant Hill, James McTeigue and Lana Wachowski. The executive producers were Garrett Grant, Terry Needham, Michael Salven, Jesse Ehrman and Bruce Berman. Wachowski’s creative team behind the scenes included “Sense8” collaborators: directors of photography Daniele Massaccesi and John Toll, production designers Hugh Bateup and Peter Walpole, editor Joseph Jett Sally, costume designer Lindsay Pugh, visual effects supervisor Dan Glass, and composers Johnny Klimek and Tom Tykwer.
