At The Game Awards on Thursday night, a new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections was shown. Neo (Keanu Reeves) and a blue-haired character (Jessica Henwick) go through a door to join a train bound for Tokyo in the trailer. They then enter a mystery area where a clip from the previous film is being played via another door. Yes, in the upcoming film. I’m curious.
The new video is the latest in a series of promos published by Warner Bros. for the forthcoming film, which will hit cinemas on HBO Max on December 22nd. “I still know kung fu,” Neo says in one released this week, which is something I absolutely repeat every day when I wake up. The Game Awards trophy makes an appearance in the clip, as host Geoff Keighley teased.
Change was the theme of a trailer published last week. But the first is still my favorite – it’s full of nostalgic references to the original trilogy and clues of the epic action to come, and it’s backed by a sweeping rendition of “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane.
The Matrix Awakens, an interactive Matrix experience produced in Unreal Engine 5, was also unveiled at the Game Awards. To chat about Awakens, we spoke with Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who plays Trinity.
