Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow revealed the title of the upcoming fourth Matrix movie, The Matrix: Resurrections, together with a new teaser trailer at CinemaCon 2021 on Tuesday, August 24 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.

According to an IGN report, the trailer starts off with lead protagonist Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, meeting a therapist in San Francisco, played by Neil Patrick Harris. Neo is seen taking two blue pills a day, and reunites with Trinity in a coffee shop, neither of them remembering each other’s identities. They also appear to have no memory of the events seen in the former Matrix films.

Matrix 4’s star-studded cast was revealed in June 2020, with names such as Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity), Jada Pinkett Smith (Niobe), and Lambert Wilson (Merovingian) returning. Cristina Ricci, Daniel Bernhardt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Jonathan Groff complete the roster. Lana Wachowski will be spearheading the production of the movie.

The fourth Matrix film was first confirmed in August 2019. Keanu Reeves had also spoken about his filming experience in San Francisco and Germany, after production was temporarily halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Matrix: Resurrections comes over 17 years after its third installment, The Matrix Revolutions, premiered in 2003. It was preceded by The Matrix Reloaded in the same year and the original The Matrix film in 1999.

The fourth installment will be released on December 22, 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max.
