THE MATRIX: RESURRECTIONS Title Officially Confirmed At CinemaCon; First Footage Description Is Here!

As expected, the upcoming fourth chapter in Neo's saga will be titled The Matrix: Resurrections, and we finally have a description of the first trailer which just debuted at CinemaCon!

While the rumor has been making the rounds online for quite some time now, Warner Bros. has finally confirmed that the upcoming fourth installment in The Matrix franchise will be titled The Matrix: Resurrections

Along with the title reveal, WB unveiled the film's first official trailer (keep scrolling for a footage description). There's no word on when it could be released online, but considering the film's expected simultaneous launch in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, it seems quite probable it will find its way online sometime in October, ahead of Denis Villeneuve's Dune

Franchise stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will headline the sequel, reprising their iconic roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively, with an all-new supporting cast consisting of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Christina Ricci, Telma Hopkins, Eréndira Ibarra, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Brian J. Smith, Daniel Bernhardt as Agent Johnson, Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian, and Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe.

Lana Wachowski directed the long-awaited sequel, with a screenplay she co-wrote with David Mitchell & Aleksander Hemon. She's also a producer on the project with Grant Hill and James McTeigue. 

Here's a quick description of the trailer, per Screen Rant

"The new trailer opens in San Francisco, with Neo now going by the name of Thomas and seemingly unaware of who he is. Neil Patrick Harris plays his therapist and a brief scene of Neo as Thomas is shown in a therapy session. Neo says, "I've had dreams that don't seem like dreams. Am I crazy?" before he has flashbacks to events of the original trilogy.The trailer also expands on the initial footage of Trinity and Neo meeting, but this time, they don't seem to know each other even though they think they do. Trinity asks Neo as Thomas, "Have we met?"

The trailer then shifts into montage mode, with Neo observing day-to-day life in the Matrix's version of San Francisco. Finally, Mateen shows up and he looks like a young Morpheus, saying, "Time to fly," before offering Neo a red pill and a blue pill. Then, another young woman with blue hair takes Neo through a mirror, showing him the Matrix.

Another scene sees young Morpheus and Neo fighting before Neo breaks the dojo room with his powers. The trailer also shows that the machine pods are back, as are agents, and the franchise's signature action. Trinity can be seen fighting police officers and agents at one point before the clip ends with Neo pulling his signature move, stopping bullets with his mind, before he redirects an entire missile at a helicopter."
