A new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections has appeared online, and just like the first trailer, leaves a lot unanswered. However, it does reintroduce the fascinating concept of Déjà Vu first touched upon in the original Matrix trilogy, which could be a hint that the plot will revolve around a few world-altering glitches.
The latest trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, fittingly named “Déjà Vu”, draws several parallels to the original 1999 film and its sequels, including similar action set pieces, events and fateful character meetings. This ultimately begs the question if the “world” that The Matrix Resurrections takes place in is the result of a massive glitch in the system. That would certainly explain the odd parallels and similar events unfolding.
However, we expect that there might be some logic and reason behind all the glitches, as it could be orchestrated by the machines too. The trailer states that something has “changed”, which could imply that events will still play out in a similar fashion but have deviations.
The Matrix Resurrections is the fourth film in The Matrix series by the Wachowski’s. It once again stars Keanu Reeves as Mr. Anderson/Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Morpheus and a new cast of characters that include Mindhunter actor Jonathan Groff, Christina Ricci, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Neil Patrick Harris and Jessica Henwick, among others. So far, the story is being kept quite vague, but we do know that Neo is seemingly unaware of the events of the prior Matrix films, and may need Trinity and Morpheus’ help in remembering.
The Matrix Resurrections releases on 22 December 2021 in cinemas. It will also be available for streaming on HBO Max.
