The fourth instalment of 'The Matrix' is on its way. The film will be titled 'The Matrix: Resurrections' and has fans' excitement building already.
Warner Bros announced the name of their upcoming release on Wednesday and teased fans with its trailer as well, at CinemaCon.
The trailer for 'The Matrix: Resurrections'
The trailer showed both Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss starring in it. It is yet to make its way onto online platforms, such as YouTube, so what was seen remains something of a secret, one belonging to those who were in attendance at CinemaCon.
Curiously, there were several references made to 'Alice in Wonderland', including Jefferson Airplane's song 'White Rabbit'. The trailer for 'The Matrix: Resurrections' showed Reeves' character Neo and also showed the characters to be played by Neil Patrick Harris and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
Who Is in The Matrix 4 Cast?
Some of the main cast members from the original Matrix trilogy are set to return for The Matrix 4. This includes Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, and Daniel Bernhardt.
Hugo Weaving, who played the iconic Agent Smith, was initially approached for The Matrix 4 but he had to decline due to scheduling conflicts. Laurence Fishburne has also confirmed that he was not asked to return as main character Morpheus for the fourth film.
There are several new actors joining the franchise including Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Eréndira Ibarra, Priyanka Chopra, Andrew Caldwell, Brian J. Smith, Ellen Hollman, and Christina Ricci. We’re yet to get official confirmation on what characters these actors will play but it has been rumored that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II may appear as a young Morpheus, taking over from Fishburne.
'The Matrix: Resurrections' release date
The film's release date has been a mystery for some time now, but it is set to be released on December 22.
'The Matrix: Resurrections' will follow on from 'The Matrix' (1999) and both 'The Matrix: Reloaded' and 'The Matrix: Revolutions', each of which were released in 2003.
