First Look At The Matrix: Resurrections Has Been Released

The first clips of the new Matrix movie have been released.

Ahead of the trailer launch later this week, Warner Bros. has shared some stills and (very) brief footage from the next instalment of the classic sci-fi series.

Titled The Matrix: Resurrections, the film is set to hit cinemas on 22 December, though still not much is known in terms of the plot.

However, if you go to the film's website, you are offered the choice between, yep, you guessed it, a red and a blue pill.

And depending on which one you choose, and the time that you visit the site, you are shown different footage from the movie, of which there are reportedly 180,000 variations.

For example, one of the sequences is voiced by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who says: "This is the moment for you to show us what is real. Right now you believe it's... [whatever time it is where you are] ...but that couldn't be further from the truth. Could be this is the first day of the rest of your life, but if you want it, you gotta fight for it."

While in another version, we are met with a very sinister-sounding (potentially Agent?) voice, which says: "Do you remember how you got here? You've lost your capacity to discern reality from fiction. What's real is here and now [time].

"Anything else is just your mind playing tricks on you. It becomes a problem when fantasies endanger us. We don't want anyone to get hurt, do we?"

These are then cut with short segments from the movie, such as Keanu Reeves' Neo getting into a scrap, a helicopter on fire, Jonathan Groff's mouth melting, Abdul-Mateen looking perplexed as he stares into a mirror, someone walking off a building, and so on.

So if you get started now, you might make it through them all by the time the actually film is released.

A cut of the trailer was reportedly revealed for the first time at Comic-Con earlier this year.

And if it turns out to be the same on that we will see, it appears as though time hasn't been too kind on Neo, who seems to be now going by his old name, Thomas Anderson, and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss).

But I guess we'll just have to wait a couple more days to find out, as the full trailer is set to land on Thursday (9 September).

Speaking to LADbible last year, Reeves promised that the fourth instalment of the series would be 'something special'.

He said: "We have a lot of hope and ambition, and we hope that people really enjoy them, and we have an ambition to make some really special films."

He added: "I haven't seen them yet, because we're still making them, but I can tell you that [director] Lana Wachowski is an incredible filmmaker and artist and she's written a wonderful script.

"We're doing our darnedest to make something special, and the same goes for John Wick, we hope that we can create a really satisfying and enjoyable next chapter."
