Neo is an important character in The Matrix films and was prophesized to be the Chosen One in the fight against the Machines. It’s been years since we’ve seen the last film, and Lana Wachowski is returning to direct the franchise with The Matrix Resurrections. The sci-fi movie will see the return of Keanu Reeves as Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity. Today, Warner Bros. has released the second trailer that features plenty of action and déjà vu, and it is hinting at Trinity as someone who can help turn the tide in the war between humans and machines.

In The Matrix trilogy, Trinity was the one who believed in Neo and helped him to realize his full potential of being the savior to humanity’s freedom. The new trailer is teasing audiences where Neo realizes he’s the one that needs to believe in Trinity. Will she be the next Chosen One? The new and previous trailers have been teasing her new powers, and it’s a possibility that she’ll be heading down that road.

About The Matrix Resurrections

In “The Matrix Resurrections,” return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it. To find out if his reality is a physical or mental construct, to truly know himself, Mr. Anderson will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. And if Thomas…Neo…has learned anything, it’s that choice, while an illusion, is still the only way out of—or into—the Matrix. Of course, Neo already knows what he has to do. But what he doesn’t yet know is the Matrix is stronger, more secure and more dangerous than ever before. Déjà vu.

Reeves reprises the dual roles of Thomas Anderson/Neo, the man once saved from the Matrix to become the savior of humankind, who will once again have to choose which path to follow. Moss portrays the iconic warrior Trinity… or is she Tiffany, a suburban wife and mother of three with a penchant for superpowered motorcycles?

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (“Candyman,” the “Aquaman” franchise) plays the wise and worldly Morpheus who, as always, serves as a guide to Neo while also fulfilling his own greater purpose on a very singular journey of self-discovery. Jessica Henwick (TV’s “Iron Fist,” “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens”) plays the hacker Bugs, the proverbial white rabbit on a mission to discover the one who sacrificed himself for humankind–and willing to take any risk necessary in search of the legend she idolizes. Jonathan Groff (“Hamilton,” TV’s “Mindhunter”), plays Thomas Anderson’s business partner, a slick, confident corporate type with insouciant charm, a disarming smile and an eye on the bottom line–everything Mr. Anderson is not. Neil Patrick Harris (“Gone Girl”) plays Thomas’ therapist, working closely with his patient to understand the meaning behind his dreams and to distinguish them from reality. Priyanka Chopra Jonas (TV’s “Quantico”) plays a young woman with a wisdom that belies her years and an ability to see the truth, no matter how murky the waters. And Jada Pinkett Smith (“Angel Has Fallen,” TV’s “Gotham”) returns as Niobe, the fierce General who once fought for the survival of Zion and who now sees to the welfare of her people with a familiar fire in her eyes, despite a sense of disbelief and suspicion upon Neo’s return.

The film is directed by Lana Wachowski from a screenplay by Wachowski & David Mitchell & Aleksandar Hemon. It’s produced by James McTeigue, Lana Wachowski and Grant Hill, and executive produced by Garrett Grant, Terry Needham, Michael Salven, Karin Wachowski, Jesse Ehrman and Bruce Berman.

The Matrix Resurrections hits theaters and HBO Max on December 22, 2021.
