The Matrix Resurrection trailer breakdown, Warner dropped the trailer, and we will explain it to you. With the millennial nostalgia revival wave getting picked up by every single studio, it’s no surprise that Warner followed suit and contacted the Wachowskis and did a Matrix movie. Firstly, it will star Keanu Reeves as Neo/ Thomas Anderson and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity. Secondly, it will have an ensemble cast of stars of the likes of Jada Pinkett Smith, Christina Ricci, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Neil Patrick Harris.
Lana Wachowski directed the film, which was based on characters developed by The Wachowskis. The script was written by Wachowski, David Mitchell, and Aleksander Hemon. Grant Hill, James McTeigue, and Lana Wachowski produced the picture. Garrett Grant, Terry Needham, Michael Salven, Jesse Ehrman, and Bruce Berman served as executive producers. Now come with us as we break down the Matrix Resurrections trailer.
Matrix Resurrections Trailer Breakdown
The Matrix Resurrection trailer begins with Neo in therapy. He thinks he’s crazy, and a therapist, played by Neil Patrick Harris, tells him not to use that word in there. Neo is nervous, he’s jumpy, and violent flashbacks keep coming back to his head. Gunshots, car chases, fight scenes. Our hero claims he has dreams that aren’t just dreams. And just like that, the green matrix absorbs us into a new reality. Eighteen years later, the Matrix resurrects into a new adventure. How cool is that!
The scene takes us to his bathtub, with Neo chilling. After that, a smash cut shows us him meeting Trinity. Then, an ensemble of scenes of blue pills —and get ready for all the easter eggs— take the lead. Instead of Neo, we see Thomas Anderson getting used to life in the Matrix, everybody hooked up to their laptops, tablets, and cell phones living their day-to-day lives. The soundtrack is riveting and takes you deep into the dive. That’s until he goes to a Café and meets up with a girl reading an Alice in Wonderland book with a Rabbit tattoo, and that’s when Thomas prepares to go down the rabbit hole again.
Time to fly!
Neo takes a red pill again and embarks on another journey. He meets up with the crew and begins another journey. The caption “This Christmas” takes the screen, and a whole bunch of action-packed scenes takes over the remainder of the trailer. Promising us just what The Matrix always delivers. An action movie with cerebral tones. Just as the music goes into the highest notes, we see Neo stopping bullets with his superpowers. Then, the scene smash cuts into another therapy session room, but with another therapist saying, “you’re going back to where it all started, you’re going back into the matrix.”
The Matrix Resurrections Cast
Resurrections introduce a slew of new characters to the series. Firstly, there’s Jessica Henwick (you may remember her from Iron Fist), and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (from Watchmen and Candyman) are the new co-led characters with a new combo of novel talent and high tech weapons at their disposal. Moreover, Neil Patrick Harris (you may remember him from How I met your Mother) plays Neo’s psychologist, he probably is some sort of computer program. The rest of the cast includes Toby Unwumere, Johnathan Groff, Max Riemelt, Eréndira Ibarra, Andrew Caldwell, Priyanka Chopra. Ellen Hollman. Christina Ricci and Brian J. Smith.
The trailer also implies that The Matrix Resurrections may be the start of a new trilogy rather than a conclusion to the current one. We don’t know for sure yet, but it seems like Neo and Trinity’s reawakening will play a significant role in this film. And, with a slew of new characters and an unknown danger approaching, it seems that viewers are on the verge of a far larger narrative. The Matrix Resurrections may or may not conclude with Neo flying again, but we’re beginning to believe.
Can This Reboot Make It or Flop?
The Matrix trilogy altered cinematic language. It even altered the vocabulary of our social discourse, with “red pill” and “blue pill” now bearing laden connotations. Is it possible for Resurrections to do it again, particularly after so many films, television shows, video games, novels, and comics have drawn from The Matrix’s vocabulary and aesthetic? Probably not, since this planet is no longer fresh. But there is still meaning to be discovered, particularly considering technological advances since the Wachowskis originally dreamed of the film’s concept. The human race’s connection with technology, as well as their own belief systems, will always be important.
