A New Still From The Matrix: Resurrections Gives Us The Reunion We've All Been Waiting For

It has been almost 18 years since "The Matrix Revolutions" seemingly brought an end to the action-packed science fiction saga, which debuted in 1999 with the game-changing first film. However, with remakes, reboots, requels, seboots, and reimaginings being all of the rage these days, it seemed inevitable that Neo (Keanu Reeves) would return to our screens eventually. This particular latter-day sequel is especially interesting, since the events of "The Matrix Revolutions" seemed pretty final for the main characters. That said, "The Matrix Resurrections" is almost upon us, and Warner Bros. continues to tease us with new images and clips.

We've already been treated to a trailer for "The Matrix Resurrections," though it didn't offer much in terms of substance. That's probably a good thing, since it's such a hotly anticipated movie and fans don't want the plot to be spoiled. This latest image actually offers some tantalizing hints about the story of the fourth "Matrix" movie, while also giving us a glimpse of the reunion we've all been waiting for.

Neo and Trinity are back together

It's already been confirmed that Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively, but how their relationship has evolved since "Revolutions" remains shrouded in mystery — especially since the first trailer hinted at them not even knowing each other anymore. In a new image, revealed courtesy of Screen Rant, the pair are seen reunited outside of a coffee shop, though it doesn't appear to be a happy get-together. Judging by their expressions, it seems that they're expecting trouble. If this franchise has taught us anything, it's that trouble always finds the heroes.

Considering that they supposedly died in "The Matrix Revolutions," it remains to be seen how Neo and Trinity will be resurrected. Are they zombies or ghosts? Maybe they're clones? Or programs? Did technology play a part? There will undoubtedly be a logical sci-fi explanation for Neo and Trinity's return. Plus, we don't have long to wait for those answers, as "The Matrix: Resurrections" arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, 2021.
