The Matrix fans are excited about the news from the upcoming fourth film in the franchise. It’s actually thought to be released later this year both in theaters and stream on HBO Max.
Now, we have a title of Matrix 4 will be thanks to a photo that the movie’s hairstylist Shunika Terry released showing a gift given to the production’s crew when the shoot ended. That gift comes with the title The Matrix Resurrections.
The title is actually right in with the titles of the other sequels, which were The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. It also fits the original trilogy’s messianic theme, with Neo a.k.a. “the One” is seen as a god-like figure.
Keanu Reeves’ Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity both died in the last movie, so with them coming back, Resurrections seems like the right way to go.
Reeves and Moss are joined by Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II who is taking on a lead role that is thought to be a young version of Morpheus. Jada Pinkett Smith is coming back in the role of Niobe, while Jessica Henwick and Neil Patrick Harris have also been cast. Harris will be playing the villain in this movie. MIndhunter star Jonathan Groff.
The Matrix Resurrections will hit theaters on December 22, 2021.
