Much like the first trailer for the film, this poster for The Matrix Resurrections riffs on the artwork for the first The Matrix film. It’s screaming, ‘Forget the sequels, we’re taking you back to the real Matrix’. Check out the new poster and the artwork for the 1999 original below.
Eighteen years on from the hugely disappointing The Matrix Revolutions comes The Matrix Resurrections. Directed by Lana Wachowski, this fourth film in the franchise once again sees Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss return as Neo and Trinity.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Christina Ricci co-star, while Jada Pinkett Smith also returns as Niobe.
The Matrix is one of the defining movies in cinema history. It came from nowhere back in 1999 and changed the face of how science fiction and action movies were made. The Wachowskis tapped into something that Hollywood didn’t know audiences wanted and it gave the world ‘bullet time’, ‘wire-fu’ and manga influenced sci-fi action philosophy. Simply put, nobody had seen anything like The Matrix when it was released in March 1999.
The Matrix Resurrections will hit cinemas and HBO Max on December 22 2021.
