Warner Bros. released the first trailer for “The Matrix Resurrections” on Thursday, and it looks like a mind-bending return to form for fans of the original film following the contentious last two “Matrix” films.
“Dreams that weren’t simply dreams,” he complains in a therapy session with Neil Patrick Harris.

The trailer depicts people being pacified by telephones, while Reeves’ character is held in check by handfuls of prescription blue pills, reflecting the technological differences between our society and the time in which the original film debuted.
His suspicions are verified when he encounters Carrie Ann Moss’ character at a coffee shop.
As their hand’s contact, his old “Matrix” love interest says, “Have we met?”
Anderson, as in the first film, pursues the rabbit down the rabbit hole and embraces his inner Neo, courtesy to Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s unidentified figure, evidently based on Laurence Fishburne’s Morpheus.

“The Matrix Resurrections,” directed by Lana Wachowski, will be released on December 22.
