To borrow a line from the iconic original: We’re in. This morning, Warner Bros. released a second trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, the fourth installment in the beloved sci-fi action series, which is set to be released more than 18 years after the initial Matrix trilogy concluded. Our first impression is: We’re impressed! The initial footage from writer/director Lana Wachowski‘s follow-up evokes the mystery and hyper-stylized imagination that made the original Matrix an all-time American classic. The first Matrix 4 trailer has received overwhelmingly positive reactions on social media. Could this be the movie surprise of the year? Here’s everything we know about The Matrix Resurrections.
The Matrix 4: Cast, release date and trailer
A return to The Matrix is fast approaching. It was confirmed back in August 2021 that the fourth movie is officially called The Matrix Resurrections (as an earlier leak had claimed), and the first trailer arrived on September 9.
The Matrix 4 was officially announced way back in August 2019 with Lana Wachowski writing and directing the new movie. Lilly Wachowski didn’t return as she felt she needed a break and thought the idea of returning to the franchise was “expressly unappealing”.
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are back, but Laurence Fishburne and Hugo Weaving probably won’t be for reasons we’ll go into in a bit. So without further delay, here’s everything you need to know about The Matrix Resurrections.

Review: The Matrix 4 Resurrections, Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus Reloaded
No two Matrix movies are alike. We remember the original as a revolutionary cyberpunk action film that introduced audiences to “bullet time” and the “wire fu” action sequences of the East. But The Matrix sequels weren’t just more of the same: The Matrix Reloaded is in many ways a superhero fantasy with the kind of CG spectacle we take for granted in the Marvel age. Meanwhile, The Matrix Revolutions could best be described as a manga and anime-inspired mecha horror movie, an absolutely twisted conclusion to the story that feels like the Wachowskis’ answer to the equally controversial The End of Evangelion.
Now, almost 20 years after the end of the original trilogy, how do we describe The Matrix Resurrections, a legacy sequel that’s at once a nostalgic look back at 1999 as well as a standalone continuation of Revolutions? Simply put: this is a love story, within an action movie, within a meta exploration of our obsession with nostalgia. If Lana Wachowski’s love letter to Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus is guilty of anything, it’s that at times it is too ambitious for its own good and can’t quite stick the landing in the third act. But ambitious is what a Matrix movie should be, and Wachowski takes incredibly big swings over the course of the film’s two and a half hour runtime. The result is a sequel that’s as delightfully weird as it is satisfying, especially for those like myself who love Reloaded and Revolutions as much as the original.
Resurrections has remained surprisingly unspoiled through its months-long marketing campaign, a true rarity in a year that also saw the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home Italy, arguably the leakiest movie in blockbuster history. But just a day from release, The Matrix Resurrections‘ biggest secrets have been kept. Sure, you’ve probably read plenty of online fan theories and speculation pieces that sound like they might be right, but I guarantee you that no one has guessed correctly. This is my roundabout way of saying that it’s really difficult to talk about this movie’s plot.
