A New “The Matrix Resurrections” Clip Reveals Trip Down Memory Lane
Warner Bros. has released a brand new clip from The Matrix Resurrections that takes us on a little trip down memory lane. The memory belongs to Neo (Keanu Reeves), who is once again being recruited to help fight the malicious A.I. that controls the Matrix. In the clip, Neo is led by a new face in the Matrix-verse, Bugs (Jessica Henwick), who takes him, in pure Matrix fashion, through a rooftop door and directly into a train in Tokyo. Neo doesn’t remember any of this, not yet. Soon enough, however, he arrives in a chamber that is a direct recall from his past. There he is again, 20-years younger, and he’s not alone. There’s Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), and his first guide to all things Matrix, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). Now Neo remembers, and as the new Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) tells him, “Nothing comforts anxiety like a little nostalgia.”
In the trailers for Resurrections, one thing has been made clear; Neo’s almost forgotten his past. Almost, but not quite. Neo still has dreams he’s convinced aren’t actually dreams, and he’s haunted by the feeling that something major in his past is shrouded from his waking view. In Resurrections, Neo will be recruited once again into the fold of red pill-taking rebels, led by a new Morpheus, new allies, and a few familiar faces like Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith). Yet intriguingly, Resurrections almost seems like a love story. Everything Warner Bros. has shared thus far has been centered on Neo’s quest to find Trinity. “She believed in me,” Neo said towards the end of the most recent trailer, “it’s my turn to believe in her.”
With new allies come new adversaries, and Neo’s main opponent, aside from the totality of the Matrix itself, seems to come in the form of Jonathan Groff’s character. In the last trailer, Groff was juxtaposed against the infamous Agent Smith (played in the first three films by Hugo Weaving), the manifestation of the Matrix’s despotic cruelty.
Pop a red pill and check out the new clip below. The Matrix Resurrections hits theaters and HBO Max on December 22.
