WATCH: ‘The Matrix Resurrections’ trailer reunites Neo and Trinity after 18 years
The trailer for The Matrix: Resurrections, the fourth installment in the Matrix franchise, has finally been released to the public.
Warner Bros. unveiled the first official trailer on Thursday (Sept. 9), giving fans a glimpse of what’s in store for Keanu Reeves' Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss' Trinity when they get plugged back into the Matrix, a simulated reality which intelligent machines have created to distract humans while using their bodies as an energy source.
Neo and Trinity reunite in the fourth film of the franchise which first debuted in 1999. The third film, The Matrix: Revolutions, was released 18 years ago.
The movie's official website was relaunched to tease the trailer's release on Tuesday, inviting viewers to pick a red or blue pill. Depending on your choice and the time of day, you'd be treated to different footage from the sci-fi adventure.
The minimalist image of the red pill and the blue pill also serves as the first poster for the upcoming film.
