The Matrix happens to be a science fiction film, written as well as directed by Wachowski brothers, released in 1999. It depicts a dystopian future where most humans perceive reality as reality simulation, aka ‘the Matrix, created by the sentient machines for subduing the human population, while their bodies’ heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. It stars Keanu Reeves, Hugo Weaving, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Joe Pantoliano, and Jennifer Connelly in a story about a computer hacker who discovers what most people think of as reality simulation created by cybernetic minds inhabiting a simulated world.
In the movie, the “Matrix” is an immersive virtual reality produced by intelligent machines to keep human beings docile and content to be used as sources of energy. In this new world without human interference, machines use renewable or solar power but also recycle their own metal “organic” material from non-functioning machines with the help of humans. The story follows computer programmer Thomas Anderson (Reeves), who uncovers the true nature of his reality and learns that he has been living inside a reality simulation called the Matrix.

Review of The Matrix Resurrection [Part 4] Trailer
The central theme of The Matrix is freedom. The realm of the dystopian future starts with the choice between the red pill and the blue pill. The red pill represents reasoning, philosophy, and critical thinking. On the other hand, the blue pill means a simple, comfortable, stable, and uncritical life. But it comes with many sacrifices and dangers.
The trailer of part four of The Matrix starts with a black cat which may seem a pretty insignificant detail regarding the movie, which is not. The black cat has been a vital symbol of the Matrix trilogy. The black cat is the sign of déjà vu for Neo that he gets regarding the fact that another world exists. One of the main things to observe in the trailer is that Neo is constantly choosing to take the blue pill, which means that he has been living in an uncritical realm. Gradually the trailer shows that Neo starts to understand the adverse effect of taking the blue pill. Spilling all the blue pills in the drains proves that case scenario only.
In the first part of The Matrix, Neo is set upon his path of extraordinary discovery after Trinity guided him to “follow the white rabbit.” To bring that same essence, the soundtracked “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane has been added in the trailer of the Resurrections while zooming on Priyanka Chopra Jonas. He is reading Lewis Carroll’s novel, which shows the phrase from Trinity indicated to Neo. It refers that the franchise’s new arrival could turn into one of the individuals who help Neo find his way out of the realm matrix. Lastly, the trailer shows an exciting twist by revealing that Neo is selecting the red pill, considering all the consequences he has faced due to taking the blue pill. The comeback of The Matrix will also be quite interesting with the new technique of bullet time. 360-degree camera around the action, and after that stitched those imaginings together with a method that made the viewers feel like they were also moving around with the slow-motion scene. Overall, getting back to The Matrix after all these years will have more twists, new characters, and the effect of technologies. It gives a feeling that it’s going to be an astounding comeback of The Matrix.
