The Matrix 4 has now been given an official title. The Matrix Resurrections, in keeping with the theme of the previous sequels’ subtitles, will be the title of the upcoming fourth installment, confirming a previously reported title. The title is now official, as it was revealed at a Warner Bros. panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
THR’s Aaron Couch was in attendance, and he was treated to some of the first footage from the upcoming film. Couch took to Twitter to reveal what he witnessed, writing that he was not sure where, to begin with The Matrix, folks. He loved the clips and informed us that the sequel is titled The Matrix: Resurrections.
The overarching plotline is as follows: After forgetting The Matrix, Thomas Anderson is in therapy. At a coffee shop, he meets Trinity. Neither of them remembers the other is the catch here.
It also appears that Keanu Reeves will adopt a look similar to that of John Wick. “WB Sizzle Reel contained some very brief Matrix 4 material and Neo had Keanu’s long hair and beard, a la John Wick, CinemaBlend’s Sean O’Connell said in another tweet.
Keanu Reeves reprises his role as Neo, alongside Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe, Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian, and Daniel Bernhardt as Agent Johnson in The Matrix Resurrections. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Priyanka Chopra, Brian J. Smith, Ellen Hollman, and Christina Ricci are among the newcomers to the cast.
The Matrix Resurrections is an appropriate title for The Matrix 4, as it continues the theme established in the previous sequels. The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were released in 2003, following the original in 1999.
In 2001, a direct-to-video documentary titled The Matrix Revisited was published, describing the making of the first Matrix. What else were they going to call the fourth instalment?
Folks, I don't even know where to begin with The Matrix. Wow! It's called The Matrix: Resurrections. Thomas Anderson is in therapy, having forgotten The Matrix. He meets Trinity at a coffee shop. Neither remembers one another… #CinemaCon

WB Sizzle Reel had MATRIX 4 footage (VERY BRIEF) and Neo had Keanu's long hair and beard, a la John Wick. #TheMatrix4
