Warner Bros. has released a new teaser for the upcoming Matrix: Resurrections starring Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.
The original Matrix movie made many references to Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland, and it looks like this sequel will double down on this, with the new teaser displaying all manner of twisted, bizarre imagery and dreamlike visuals as Neo joins forces with a band of rebels in order to face his destiny all over again.
The Matrix: Resurrections begins with Neo now living a seemingly ordinary life as Thomas Anderson in San Francisco where his therapist prescribes him blue pills (not valium).
Though he doesn’t remember his past adventures, a young Morpheus appears to offer him the red pill, reopening his mind to the world of The Matrix.
Here’s the teaser:
