The Matrix Resurrections TV Spot Offers More Action & Further Clues

The newest TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi sequel The Matrix Resurrections, which is aptly titled “Fighting”, offers several glimpses of some new, action-packed footage, as well as more of the dream-like, surreal imagery that has littered the marketing material so far. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss return to their respective roles of Neo and Trinity, with the pair finding themselves once again fighting for freedom in a digital world.

The Matrix Resurrections is the surprise fourth movie in the franchise, with the sequel following on from the story that was first established in 1999’s The Matrix. Set twenty years after the first outing, The Matrix Resurrections will once again attempt to define pop culture as audiences are plugged back into this mind-bending new adventure of action and epic scale.


The Matrix Resurrections picks up in a familiar yet even more provocative world where reality is more subjective than ever and all that’s required to see the truth is to free your mind. While the project continues to remain rather mysterious, we now have at least some idea regarding the direction of The Matrix Resurrections thanks to recent trailers, with the movie beginning with Neo now living a seemingly ordinary life as Thomas A. Anderson in San Francisco where his therapist prescribes him sinister blue pills. Though he does not remember his past adventures, a young Morpheus appears to offer him the red pill, reopening his mind to the world of the Matrix.

The movie will once again find Neo and Trinity drawn together, and though fans have their theories as to how The Matrix Resurrections will play out, Carrie Anne-Moss has recently declared that the movie will take many unexpected twists and turns. “When I read [the script] for the first time — I was with Keanu reading it at a table — I had no idea how where we going to go back to this world,” she said. “I fantasized it in my mind, like three different scenarios. I was nowhere close.”

Keanu Reeves meanwhile has teased the sequel’s quality saying that The Matrix Resurrections is “throwing down the Matrix gauntlet again. It’s super smart, clever, entertaining, suspenseful, funny. [The] writing is spectacular.”

Produced, co-written, and directed by Lana Wachowski, The Matrix Resurrections stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith, each of whom will reprise their roles from previous movies in the series. They will be joined by a host of new characters, including Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Ricci, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who has confirmed that he will play a younger version of Neo’s former mentor, Morpheus. Priyanka Chopra Jonas meanwhile will also enter The Matrix, with a character poster seemingly revealing that she will play an older version of Sati, a crucial character from the previous trilogy.

The Matrix Resurrections will have its world premiere on December 18, 2021, in San Francisco and is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures theatrically on December 22, 2021. The movie will also stream digitally on HBO Max in the United States for a month beginning on that same date.
