The Matrix 4 trailer: Keanu Reeves returns as Neo as first full trailer for Resurrections explodes online

The first full trailer for The Matrix 4 — officially titled The Matrix: Resurrections — has arrived online.

The trailer follows a number of teasers that appeared online earlier this week that hinted at what to expect from the fourth film in the science fiction franchise.

It sees an amnesiac Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) who seems to be unaware of his past as Neo — the chosen one who fought to liberate mankind in the previous three films — talking to a psychiatrist (Neil Patrick Harris).

It also shows the return of Carrie Ann Moss as Trinity, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II who appears to be playing a younger incarnation of Morpheus.

Very little is known about the plot of The Matrix: Resurrections at this stage. It's being directed by Lana Wachowski, who directed the original trilogy alongside her sister Lily Wachowski, wrote a script she co-wrote with Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell, and Aleksandar Hemon.

Original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne Moss both return as Neo and Trinity, with the Bill and Ted star saying in 2020: “We have a wonderful director, Lana Wachowski, and she has written a beautiful script that is a love story. It’s inspiring.

“It’s another version, a call to wake up and it has some great action.”

The new film reunites original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the iconic roles they made famous, Neo and Trinity.
