“I’ve had dreams that weren’t just dreams,” Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) says in the first full trailer of “The Matrix Resurrections” — the long-awaited fourth film in this groundbreaking franchise that started in 1999 with “The Matrix”.
“Am I crazy?” he asks. “We don’t use that word in here,” his therapist, played by Neil Patrick Harris, says. But where exactly is here?
Welcome back, Mr. Anderson
Later, we see Thomas shaking hands and saying hi to someone, who turns out to be Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss).
But he looks confused when she asks: “Have we met?”
To say that “The Matrix Resurrections” is a highly anticipated film is an understatement. In fact, it’s mind-boggling that a fourth Matrix film is actually coming our way, 18 years after “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions”, which were both released in 2003.
Apart from reuniting Reeves and Moss in their iconic roles of Neo and Trinity, “The Matrix Resurrections” boasts of an all-star cast.
“The Matrix Resurrections” also stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (“Candyman,” the “Aquaman” franchise), Jessica Henwick (TV’s “Iron Fist,” “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens”), Jonathan Groff (“Hamilton,” TV’s “Mindhunter”), Neil Patrick Harris (“Gone Girl”), Priyanka Chopra Jonas (TV’s “Quantico,”), Christina Ricci (TV’s “Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story,” “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles”), Telma Hopkins (TV’s “Dead to Me,”), Eréndira Ibarra (series “Sense8,” “Ingobernable”), Toby Onwumere (TV’s “Empire”), Max Riemelt (series “Sense8”), Brian J. Smith (series “Sense8,” “Treadstone”), and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Angel Has Fallen,” TV’s “Gotham”).
Lana Wachowski directed from a screenplay by Wachowski, David Mitchell, and Aleksander Hemon, based on characters created by The Wachowskis. 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.
“The Matrix Resurrections” will be distributed worldwide, including the Philippines, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
