One month after the release of Matrix Resurrections in cinemas, David Mitchell, one of the producers of the film, explained in a statement released to CBR that the sequel to the Matrix saga … it’s not exactly a sequel of the saga.
Matrix Resurrections, the sequel to The Matrix, will not be the usual sequel
The producer and co-writer of the film together with Lana Wachowski And Aleksander Hemon, wanted to specify that Matrix Resurrections will not be the usual sequel but something different and more independent within the franchise.
I saw the film in September while I was in Berlin. It is really good. I cannot tell you anything about the plot of the film but I can explain what it is not. It is certainly not the usual sequel, rather an autonomous entity that contains in any case, in a very ingenious way, the three Matrixes that preceded it. It is a very beautiful and unique creation and it also manages to achieve a couple of things that we generally don’t see in action movies. It goes to subvert the rules of blockbusters.
Considering that the two sequels to The Matrix certainly didn’t shine for quality, our hope is that this “non sequel” turns out to be a… worthy sequel.
Synopsis, trailer and details of the film
Matrix Resurrections is a continuation of the story that began in the first 1999 Matrix film.
The film sees the return of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the iconic roles of Neo and Trinity in an expansion of their story that ventures back into the Matrix and deeper into the “rabbit hole”.
A mind-blowing new adventure full of action and adrenaline, set in a familiar but even more provocative world where reality is more subjective than ever and all it takes to see the truth is to clear your mind.
In the film, as already mentioned, the protagonists of the original trilogy Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith) will return, while we will find a new Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II). Among the other new entries, alongside the aforementioned Jessica Henwick and Neil Patrick Harris, we will find Jonathan Groff, Christina Ricci And Daniel Bernhardt.
The direction is by Lana Wachowski, who co-wrote the film with David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hermon.
