Fans are excited for the return of Keanu Reeves as Neo in Matrix Resurrections this coming December and now, a new promo offers some more glimpse at the film. Right now, social media is brimming with an international advertisement, offering a brand new look at the special effects used in the film. The fourth installment in the Matrix franchises recalls Lana Wachowski as its writer and also, the director of the film. Matrix star Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss returns as Neo and Trinity. While many fans have assumed that this will be a direct sequel to the earlier Matrix films, especially The Matrix Revolutions, co-writer David Mitchell has stated that the film will be a lot more and somewhat different than that.
While speaking to To Vima, he revealed, “I saw the film in Berlin in September. It’s really good. I cannot tell you what the film is about, but I could explain what it is not. It’s certainly not yet one more sequel, but something autonomous that contains however the three Matrix that preceded in a really ingenious way. It’s a very beautiful and weird creation. It also achieves a couple of things that we do not see in action films, meaning it subverts the rules of blockbusters.”
Here’s the tweet with some new footage:

While speaking to BBC’s The One Show, Keanu revealed, “We have a wonderful writer and director, Lana Wachowski, and she’s really written a beautiful, beautiful script that is a love story, it’s inspiring, it’s another version of a kind of call to wake up, and entertains, great action. And all will be revealed.”
Here’s the official synopsis released by Warner Bros for the Matrix Resurrections:
“In two realities—everyday life and what lies behind it—Thomas (Keanu Reeves) will again have to choose to follow the white rabbit. Choice, while an illusion, is still the only way in or out of the Matrix, which is more dangerous than ever. Directed, produced and co-written by Lana Wachowski.”
