Listen y'all, it's been a long week, so I'm going to just cut directly to the chase here: The Matrix: Resurrections finally has its first trailer, and...just watch it. Stop reading this and watch it. Here, I'll make it easy for you:
The highly anticipated new installment in the Matrix franchise still follows Neo (Keanu Reeves, my beloved), who appears to be back to his old ways, once again going by the name "Thomas Anderson."
While speaking to a gentleman who appears to be his therapist (Neil Patrick Harris), Neo muses that he's "had dreams that weren’t just dreams."
Shortly after, we get another familiar face when Neo runs into Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) at a coffee shop, who seems to have no recollection of their past history together.
Then, things escalate quickly after a still-unnamed character* (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) once again offers Neo the iconic red pill and ~down the rabbit hole~ he goes.
After some action and incredible visuals, the trailer ends with another short conversation, this time with a different gentleman (Jonathan Groff) who does the thing! He says the title of the movie!!!
Like...Y'ALL! Keanu? Yahya?! Someone's clearly been reading my diary!!! I've got to get a better lock for that thing.
The action sequences! The beautiful direction! The shot composition! The positively sick use of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit"! It! All! Looks! Unbelievable!
And, naturally, I wasn't the only one super excited — fans are absolutely loving the new trailer:
With some even pointing out the choice to keep Keanu's John Wick look for the movie:
Also — unrelated — but there is a moment in the trailer in which Neo is in a bubble bath with a rubber ducky on his head, which...again, I gotta get a better lock for that diary.
So, uh, yeah! There ya have it! Be sure to catch The Matrix: Resurrections in all its glory when it hits theaters and HBO Max on Dec. 22!
