Wait, there’s a new Matrix movie?
Was there someone who wanted this?
I didn’t even want the second and third ones.
The Matrix Resurrections dropped its first trailer Thursday morning, and the tease was eye-popping with astonishing visuals that fans have come to expect from the beloved sci-fi franchise.
The first look at the highly anticipated Warner Bros. installment continued the story of Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), seemingly once again trapped inside the simulated reality controlled by machines. The preview sets up that Anderson, aka Neo, does not seem to remember his past or who he is, while he discusses his dreams with a therapist played by Neil Patrick Harris. Neo and Trinity apparently do not know each other — yet.
The three-minute trailer is perfectly stirred with Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit.”
Poor Keanu Reeves.
He’s literally the greatest actor of all time, and he first gets hit with Cyberpunk 2077; now he’s getting hit with this. He deserves so much better.
I will say that Carrie-Anne Moss looks pretty good for her age.
Laurence Fishburne had the dignity to refuse to reprise his role as Morpheus, so they’ve got some new black ninja playing him. That’s really tacky. They should have killed off the character, rather than have a new actor play him.
The Wachowski brothers who made the first three films have made a shocking transformation into the Wachowski sisters. Larry is directing this one.
As the reader is aware, the Matrix’s “red pill” and “blue pill” metaphor has become a pillar of right-wing metaphor-mongering. I’m sure these trannies are aware of that, and will make a point to attack the right-wing.
The trailer doesn’t look that bad, but I promise you, the whole thing is going to be some attack on right-wingers who stole their metaphors.
I mean, they’ve already come out and said that the original films were about transsexualism. So. Yeah.
My advice to you is just to forget you ever heard about this film. Take the blue pill on The Matrix Resurrections, and forget it exists.
