A new poster for The Matrix Resurrections is here, and it shows Neo reuniting with Trinity, alongside some new cast members. The poster also includes the tagline, “Return to the Source.”

At the end of 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions, the humans and machines struck a peace deal, where humans were offered the chance to leave the Matrix. We’re still waiting to find out if the peace deal has fallen through, or if there’s another reason Neo and the others are returning to the Matrix.
While there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding the plot of The Matrix Resurrections, last month the official synopsis told us the Matrix will be, “stronger, more secure and more dangerous than ever before.” Our breakdown of the film’s first trailer dives into how Neo and Trinity are still alive.
We’re just over a month out from the movie’s release, as The Matrix 4 will arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, 2021. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity, even though both characters died during the events of Revolutions. Laurence Fishburne won’t be returning as Morpheus, as Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has been cast in that role.
Other returning cast members include Jada Pinkett-Smith, Daniel Bernhardt, and Lambert Wilson. Some of the new faces joining the series are Jessica Henwick, Christina Ricci, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, and Jonathan Groff.
