The Matrix 4 is coming with a new name and unexpected characters

After 22 years since the release of the first The Matrix, the famous saga returns with a new chapter and Warner Bros unveils the official title

It was 1999 when the science fiction genre welcomed what for millions of fans is an icon of the genre: The Matrix. Since then, the red and blue pill has enchanted and made a whole generation of nerds and non-nerds think. In a few months, it will be The Matrix again, with the fourth and "last" chapter of this extraordinary cinematic saga.

The first The Matrix was released in cinemas around the world 22 years ago: the success was enormous. The Matrix won numerous awards, including four Oscars, but what surprised most was its cultural impact. Since then, several works have recalled the extraordinary work of brothers Andy and Larry Wachowski, who later became Lilly and Lana Wachowski, after a sex change. The original Matrix grossed $495 million worldwide and even today, despite the sequels Reloaded and Revolutions, remains unmatched in its success. Warner Bros. has made official the release date of the film for December 22, 2021 and has definitely confirmed the title: Matrix Resurrections.

Matrix Resurrections: the plot

In the fourth chapter of the Matrix will return, after dying at the end of the initial trilogy, Neo, played by the beautiful Keanu Reeves and Trinity, which will still have the determination and elegance of Carrie-Anne Moss. Very little news about the plot of Resurrections. Reeves had declared some time ago that in the film there would be a "love story" making us hope for Neo and Trinity, but at the same time there would be no return to the past.

A few lucky ones have been able to take a look at the first images of the film. In fact, it seems that in one scene you would see a psychiatrist, played by Neil Patrick Harris, talking to Keanue Reeves wondering about the state of his mental health. Another scene described is when Trinity meets Neo in a bar. She asks him if they had ever met before that moment; something that has absolutely happened since the first Matrix, but he tells her no. Something has happened, they don't remember each other. What will Lana Wachowski have created to surprise us? We also see a young Morpheus, played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, a new entry in the cast.

Directing and objectives of Matrix Resurrections 

The direction of this fourth chapter of the science fiction saga, which marked a milestone in the genre, has the hand of Lana Wachowski. The director from the beginning has declared that she wants to give the first The Matrix, with this new Resurrections, a worthy heir to success. La Wachowski assieme ad Aleksander Hemon e David Mitchell hanno scritto la sceneggiatura originale di Matrix Resurrections.

Matrix Resurrections avrà un compito molto arduo: riprendere, senza deludere, l’entusiasmo iniziale dei fan del primo, vero Matrix. La brillantezza del primo capitolo, con riferimenti a religione, spiritualità, intelligenza artificiale e percezione della realtà, che hanno appassionato è mancata nei successivi due, per cui questa nuova pellicola avrà il compito di dare nuova linfa.

Dall’altro, sono passati 22 anni e Matrix 4, dovrà appassionare la nuova generazione. Trinity direbbe che quella strada già la conosciamo, sa dove ci porta, chissà, in questo Matrix Resurrections, dove saremo trasportati dal 22 dicembre, dopo l’uscita mondiale al cinema e sulla rete HBO.
