Thanks to a new trailer teasing all of the upcoming Warner Bros projects that will hit HBO Max this year, the title for the fourth movie in The Matrix franchise may have now been revealed. At roughly 0:25 in the new HBO Max 2021 release trailer, a shorter title than the The matrix 4 flashes that just says Matrix.
While this tells us little about the direction of the film, cutting out surrounding words or subtitles certainly makes for a catchy title. The tile change could also suggest that Matrix will have other highly anticipated sequels such as Halloween and Candyman, both of which act as semi-reboots for long-running franchises.
Although specific details regarding the plot of The matrix 4remains a mystery, thought to be a continuation after the events of 2003 The Matrix Revolutions. One of the few things we do know is that both Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will be reprising their roles from previous episodes, Neo and Trinity respectively, despite the fact that both of their characters were seemingly murdered at the end of the trilogy .
Keanu Reeves herself has revealed a few insights as to what audiences can expect when they hook up again, with the actor recently applauding director Lana Wachowski, before describing the fourth Matrix film as a “love story”, and also gives us an idea of the direction of the highly anticipated sequel. “We have a great director, Lana Wachowski, and she’s written a beautiful script that’s a love story, it’s inspiring,” Reeves said recently. “It’s a different version, a wake-up call and it has great action. Everything will be revealed.”
This is far from the first time that Reeves co-wrote Lana Wachowski’s script that she wrote Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon. “Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a beautiful story that appealed to me,” he said in June. ‘That’s the only reason to do it. Working with her again is just great. It’s been very special and the story, I think, has some meaningful things to say, and we can get some nourishment from it. ‘
Besides Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, Matrix finds a few more famous faces returning to the sci-fi action, including Jada Pinkett Smith and Lambert Wilson, both of whom will also reprise their respective roles from previous films. Matrix will also feature a line-up of new faces including Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Eréndira Ibarra, Andrew Caldwell, Brian J. Smith and Ellen Hollman .
In a rare piece of good news about release dates, Matrix is now scheduled to hit theaters several months earlier than expected thanks to the recent rescheduling at Warner Bros, which will go from April 1, 2022 to December 22, 2021.
Despite the announcement that the film will also digitally stream on HBO Max in the United States for a month from the same date, director Lana Wachowski is reportedly “adamant” that Matrix gets an exclusive theatrical run before being made available at home. This comes to our disposal thanks to HBO Max.
