Spoiler:
Looks like the Matrix Online game might be part of film canon.. and he died in that.

Any word on whether the SFX in this one are copyable?

I think he was probably just too busy filming all his Marvel movies.

He was in one Marvel movie.

When asked… he said “talk to Lana Wachowski.”

I was making a (lame) Samuel L. Jackson joke. I actually forgot he was in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Re: The Matrix Resurrections (2021, D: Lana Wachowski) S: Reeves, Moss

What's cool is that this is a straight continuation and we're in the 7th (I think it's the 7th as I believe the architect mentioned they we're in the sixth version in revolutions) version of the Matrix. So basically, everything starts from scratch again. It will be interesting to see how they justify both Neo and Trinity coming back after they died. also will be interesting to see how they get around the aging thing. Notice all the blue and red in the trailer? (Doogie Howser's glasses, Morpheus' clothing, blue haired chick, etc...) nice touch.

Even if they manage to capture 1/10th of the feel of the first movie I will be super happy. While I liked all three I can admit 1 was amazing, 2 was good and 3 was just a mess. I still love the story and look forward to this movie and see how they expand on it.

Re: The Matrix Resurrections (2021, D: Lana Wachowski) S: Reeves, Moss

I haven't seen the first 3 movies in at least 15 years. I do have the trilogy set that I got for Christmas a few years ago, but haven't made the time for a re-watch.

I'll try to do a re-watch before I see this. As for the footage in this trailer, it looks cool to me. But, honestly I'm not a huge Matrix fan. I liked the 1st movie and barely remember the two sequels.

And yes I will see this in a theater in Dolby.

^ Granted, I only watched the trailer on my phone but I didn’t see any visual effects that looked too bad.

The shot of the person jumping over the car as it was being shot up looked pretty cool to me.

Effects work looked fine for me but then again I hated a lot of effects work in the sequels - it was less effects and more just cg versions of the actors at that point. Even in 2003 they looked rough, especially on IMAX.

The first used fx to amplify the actors, not replace them entirely. Here? There wasnt a ton to judge off of, though the cinematography looks lazier and less stylish.

The trailer was great. That doesn't mean the movie will be, but it got me excited about the film, which I wasn't up until today.

I've decided I really don't like Reeves keeping his John Wick look for this movie. It really takes me out of the Matrix universe. That and the lack of the green color grading

I thought I saw some behind the scene photos where Keanu was clean shaven. Maybe his look will change once he’s in the Matrix again.

Looked different, but great to me. Different in than what I expected. Which I have no idea. But, no Laurence Fishburne? What did I miss?

Re: The Matrix Resurrections (2021, D: Lana Wachowski) S: Reeves, Moss

Watched the trailer twice today. I dig it. I rewatched the other flicks a little while back, and I think the sequels aren't as bad as their reputation. Honestly, the dated CGI is the worst aspect.

I'm down for seeing this in a theater. I'm guessing Wachowski either didn't want Fishburne because he couldn't do the stunts required of him, or
Spoiler:
She considers the Enter The Matrix game to be canon and there's a story-related reason that Morpheus looks different, similar to The Oracle

Not overly excited as the first three movies were enough for me and never kept up with non-movie "canon." Probably won't see in theaters but will watch when available at home.

Re: The Matrix Resurrections (2021, D: Lana Wachowski) S: Reeves, Moss

I don't mean to make anyone's eyes roll at me but.....I know that Morpheus dies in the video game and they're probably following that but....Lawrence Fishbourne has such a "presence" about him and he was such a huge part of these flicks. Going to miss not seeing him. Also, Hugo....They're too huge players that will be missing in full and I hope they found a way to make up for it.

Re: The Matrix Resurrections (2021, D: Lana Wachowski) S: Reeves, Moss

I did a lockdown rewatch of the original trilogy last year to revisit the movies and also to test my Dolby Vision and Atmos home theater since the movies are now available in those formats. Didn't really change my mind much about them, loved the 1st, liked most of the action sequences in the 2nd (except the dated CGI), disliked the 3rd. I'll definitely watch this but reviews will sway me whether to watch at the theater or on HBO Max.

Best part of the trailer was seeing real colors without a green filter over everything. The green filter in the first two sequels seemed more for the sake of the audience than anything contributing to verisimilitude in the world of the matrix.
