Matrix fans worldwide are gearing up for the release of The Matrix Resurrections. The new film reunites original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the iconic roles they made famous, Neo and Trinity.
In the press materials for the film, Keanu's character Neo/Thomas Anderson sets out to discover "if his reality is a physical or mental construct...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."
The Matrix Resurrections is in cinemas from 22nd December
