Trailer Arrives For “The Matrix Resurrections” Full Of Beautiful Helicopter Shots Of San Francisco


In early 2020, San Francisco was in turmoil with Keanu’s sightings as the cast and crew of a fourth. Matrix installment arrived for filming the location. And now we can see what that looks like after post-production, like the trailer for Matrix resurrections just fell.

The film, which hits theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, begins with Neo (played by Reeves) living a seemingly normal life in San Francisco, going to see therapist Neil Patrick Harris to talk about his troubling dreams. It looks like he’s taken his blue pills religiously and forgot about the Matrix and the world of red pills – and it all takes place in the trailer for the very SF psychedelic rock song “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane .

Then Neo meets Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), who doesn’t recognize him, and a red pill has to materialize at some point, and we’re at war with the bots again.

Directed by Lana Wachowski and co-written by David Mitchell Рthe brilliant British novelist of Cloud Atlas, with whom Wachowski collaborated on the film adaptation as well as an episode of Sens8 Рand Aleksandar H̩mon, Matrix resurrections has a lot to answer for after the disappointing second and third franchise installments. The original Matrix The film, released in 1999, was indicative of the sci-fi genre and launched the careers of the Wachowskis (Lilly Wachowski retired from work on the fourth film The Matrix for unknown reasons).

A lot has been written, both in academic and popular circles, over the past decade, shedding new light on The matrix, its concepts of identity and self-determination, and how it speaks to the experience of trans people. This follows Lana Wachowski’s exit as a trans in 2010 and Lilly’s subsequent exit. As Vox explained in 2019, the Wachowskis even wrote a character with a trans identity in the original script of The matrix – Switch, one of Morpheus’ ship’s crew, was supposed to portray himself as a man in reality but as a woman in The Matrix, but Warner Bros. rejected this idea.

It will be intriguing to see how, in 2021, we can get more obvious nods to these ideas about identity in this new installment – although there are no big clues about it in the tape. -announcement. We know that two queer actors were cast – Harris and Jonathan Groff – and we also know that Yahya Abdul-Mateen appears to be playing a Morpheus replacement, although he is not named (and Laurence Fishburne does not appear to have wanted to take over his role. role).

See all of San Francisco’s glorious shots, including a chase scene on BART! And it looks like we have some context for that stunt of jumps that everyone saw being filmed next to a downtown skyscraper, as well as all that helicopter movement one night in February 2020.
