The first trailer for The Matrix Resurrections will debut today at 2PM BST. Due to release on December 22nd, the forthcoming installment has been shrouded in mystery for months. Fans can visit the iconic “whatisthematrix” website too, as Warner Brothers have restored it after all these years. It’s pretty awesome to see an old school marketing campaign kick off like this.
Debuting in 1999, the franchise took the industry by storm with its technical innovations and creative use of eastern cinema influences. Two more sequels would be shot back-to-back, Reloaded and Revolutions, releasing in 2003 respectively. Despite a mixed reception at the time, the trilogy has maintained immense staying power within the conversations of film lovers across the globe for over 15 years.
December can’t quick come enough and I will be there IMAX day one for this bad boy. Attendees at Cinema Con were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the upcoming blockbuster. Want to know what they thought? Want to read some whacky story beats?
