After freeing humanity from the machines, Thomas Anderson finds himself in a familiar scenario – but in a slightly different world. Eventually, Neo finds Trinity and they must work together to tear down this new and improved version of The Matrix. The Matrix: Resurrections hits theaters and HBO Max on 12.22.21.
Awesome The Matrix
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original LED Pulsar, this remarkable watch has a green dot matrix display as a nod to The Matrix Resurrections. It has an all-black PVD-coated steel case and link bracelet, with a Matrix digital rain pattern inscribed on its case back and on its packaging. It’s limited to 1999 pieces.
Each year, Tom BetGeorge puts on an awesome Halloween light show to help raise funds for the McHenry House Family Shelter. One of 2021’s displays was inspired by The Matrix, complete with those iconic green computer effects, and set to Rage Against the Machine’s Wake Up, the track from the ending sequence of the movie.
Remember the part of The Matrix where Neo took the red pill? What if he took the blue pill instead? Ctrl Shift Face and VFX artist Chris Ume make us wonder no longer, with the help of some deepfake tech. If the concept seems familiar, you might recall this mashup. VFX breakdown and comparison clip here.
As The Matrix 4: Resurrections kicks off, Neo and Trinity find themselves caught in the illusion of The Matrix. But it’s not long before they find their reality is not what it seems and must learn to fight for humanity’s freedom once again. Coming to HBO Max and theaters on 12.22.2021.
“…it wasn’t so much a death, as it was a discovery.” The The Matrix trilogy, particularly its first movie, can be interpreted in so many ways. Now You See It offers that it can also be read as the expression of the Wachowskis’ desire to come out and be true to themselves.
He chose the red pill. He knows kung fu. He is The One. The Matrix turns 20 in 2019, which means a ton of merchandise are incoming, starting with Hot Toys’ realistic 13″ action figure of Keanu Reeves as Neo. It comes with 4 pairs of hands, 10 guns and his signature black outfit.
There is no spoon. Burger Fiction cut out all the bits of The Matrix Trilogy that didn’t move the plot forward, summing up the entire story in just 90 seconds. We love how they gave less than 30 seconds to Reloaded and Revolutions, because that’s all they really deserve.
