New The Matrix Resurrections Trailer is Less Interesting

I’m back to not knowing what to make of The Matrix Resurrections. It’s definitely going to be a big movie, with a lot of sound and thunder. But will it be its own movie? Or will it just be a loose remake of the first film? The Deju Vu trailer had been pondering the mysteries of Resurrections. This new trailer, released today, has me assuming it’s all just shouting and explosions.

I’m also, for sure, missing that cool rendition of “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane. Say what you will about music in movie trailers, but I remain a huge fan of using popular songs in fun aways, even when they’re slow, somber covers of peppier songs.

I just think this was a less interesting trailer than everything we’ve seen so far. Who knows what the heck this movie is going to be in the end. But I suppose we’ll find out on Dec. 22.

OK Matrix Resurrections, You Have My Attention

A new short trailer for The Matrix Resurrections came out yesterday and it has for sure caught my attention. Up until this trailer, I’ve been assuming that Resurrections will be like The Force Awakens, like some kind of simple recreation of the first Matrix movie. But maybe that’s the point…

One take away from this trailer might be that the studio and filmmakers are so crass that they want people to believe this is a recreation of the first film, and that’s why they should watch it. Resurrections will be safe and simple.

But my take away from this trailer is that Resurrections has something deeper and cooler going on, and the resemblance to the first film is an intentional swerve. Maybe it’s going to take a meta approach to the very idea of that resemblance and really blow our minds. So I’m going to keep my hopes up for this second interpretation!

The Matrix Resurrections comes to theaters on Dec. 22.

We’re Going Back Into The Matrix!

The Matrix Resurrections is coming in December (hopefully) and we finally have a trailer! Let us dive back into that crazy world with a pretty awesome trailer, showing off a lot of really awesome visuals.

Looks good to me! I’m as much of a Matrix fan as everybody else. Perhaps even more so, because I actually like both sequels. And I’m ready for this new film. I’m as skeptical as anybody else when it comes to reviving franchises with a new sequel after several decades, but at least this new movie has one of the Wachowski sisters back to helm the project. That counts for a lot. And all of the actors look fine.

The movie also looks visually magnificent. So huzzah to The Matrix Resurrections! Coming out on Dec. 22!
