22 years ago Keanu Reeves graced the cinema screens playing Neo and now he's set to do it again. Teaser trailers have been released hyping the newest addition to the Matrix series, The Matrix Resurrections. So here's everything we know so far from the teasers, including when is the Matrix 4 released in Ireland.
When is the Matrix 4 official trailer released?
The official trailer is set to be released September 9th 2021 as announced at CinemaCon 2021 back in August.
When is The Matrix 4 release date?
The film is set to be released in cinemas December 22nd 2021. Warner Bros originally had the film penciled in for May 2021 before the pandemic. They then rescheduled for April 2022 but now has been officially confirmed for December 22nd 2021.
Who's starring in the film?
Keanu Reeves along with Carrie-Anne Moss have returned to the roles of Neo and Trinity, the roles they played in the original. Jada Pinkett-Smith has also returned to reprise her role as Niobe, a role she began playing in the second film, The Matrix reloaded.
Laurence Fishbone and Hugo Weaving on the other hand have not returned to their roles as Morpheus and Agent Smith. Both weren't invited to the cast for unknown reasons. But a plethora of other stars like Neil Patrick-Harris have signed on to play new roles in the new film.
What's The Matrix 4 about?
While there isn't an official synopsis yet we do know a little bit of the plot from the trailer shown at CinemaCon. We see Neo, who is known as Thomas Anderson again and is taking a prescription of blue pills. His life is completely normal.
But like in the original Neo is given a red pill (this time by a character played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and takes it, changing his life completely. Not much is known after that but we can be sure to see exciting action and some amazing cinematography.
