Keanu Reeves has revealed that filming Matrix Resurrections was a very different experience than previous Matrix films, with very little rehearsal.
During an interview with Weekly entertainment, the 57 year old Matrix Resurrections Stern compared the original matrix Trilogy for the upcoming film.
“[Wachowski was] more behind the monitor, ”but“ still handy, ”he said of the original films. But with resurrections “[she was] more involved in the movement of the camera and more interested in doing than rehearsing. “
He confessed that they “hardly rehearsed, if at all,” while filming Matrix Resurrections.
The Matrix 4: Every actor and character confirmed for sequel
In Matrix Resurrections, Keanu Reeves returns as Thomas ‘Neo’ Anderson – the techno messiah of the original Matrix trilogy, who looks a little worse this time around.
“In a world with two realities – everyday life and what is hidden behind it – Thomas Anderson has to decide again to follow the white rabbit,” says the press release the official summary. “Choice, though an illusion, is still the only way into or out of the Matrix that is stronger, safer, and more dangerous than ever.”
The Matrix certainly feels very different in its current version, with Morpheus (famously played by Laurence Fishburne) now played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen IIwhile other original characters like Trinity and Niobe see the return of their original actors.
This has sparked some speculation that the Morpheus we see in teasers is actually a new version of the iconic character – rebuilt by the machines.
But despite an impressive trailerLittle is otherwise known about Matrix Resurrections.
The director Lana Wachowski would like to keep that and simply says that “the power of technology to capture or limit our subjective reality” will play an “important role in the new narrative” in the upcoming film.
“Art is a mirror,” said Wachowski. “Most will prefer to look at the surface, but there will be people like me who enjoy what is hidden behind the mirror. I made this film for you. “
Matrix Resurrections hits theaters and HBO Max on December 22, 2021.
