The first trailer of the highly-anticipated Keanu Reeves-starrer The Matrix: Resurrections has been unveiled. The fourth installment of the popular franchise will see Reeves make a return as Neo. The three-minute will clip sees Neo struggling while differentiating between dreams and reality.
Talking with his psychiatrist (Neil Patrick Harris), Neo tells him about "dreams that weren’t just dreams" - visions of familiar green code, gunfights and people hooked up to painful-looking gizmos - and goes on to question, "Am I crazy?"
Not much is known about the plot or the newcomers yet, though Abdul-Mateen seems to be the Morpheus-like guru with the wise sayings this time around, "The only thing that matters to you is still here. I know it’s why you’re still fighting and why you’ll never give up," he told Neo.
The original films followed a band of rebels who battled intelligent machines in a future where humans are enslaved within the Matrix - a virtual reality that resembles the contemporary world. Reeves' Neo was a hero on a mission to save mankind.
The dark fantasy featured a mix of pseudo-eastern philosophy and Western mythology, spectacular fight scenes and lavish special effects. The film, directed by Lana Wachowski, also stars newcomers Harris, Priyanka Chopra and Jonathan Groff.
