The Eye-Opening Trinity Detail That Has Fans Pausing The Matrix Resurrections Trailer

If "The Matrix" had only introduced the world to the red or blue pill dilemma, that still would have been enough to secure the franchise a lasting legacy. However, the original trilogy of dystopian films also features some stunning visual sequences and compelling subtext, which allows fans to endlessly theorize about the franchise's ideas about a wide range of subjects, ranging from identity and religion to philosophy and gender.

Now, this year's "The Matrix Resurrections" sees a blue-pilled Thomas Anderson/Neo (Keanu Reeves) once again brought into the bleak reality of the Matrix after 20 years of living in a simulated reality. The highly-anticipated sequel will also see the return of fan-favorite characters like Morpheus (played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is replacing Laurence Fishburne in the role) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss).

Unsurprisingly, the action-packed first trailer for "The Matrix Resurrections" is full of nods to the series' previous films and the Wachowski sisters' wider filmography, as well as some curious details that have fans desperate for more information. In fact, one of the standout details in the film's first trailer involves Carrie-Anne Moss' Trinity, and could have some major implications for the rest of "The Matrix Resurrections."

Trinity's many faces in The Matrix Resurrections

On the official "Matrix" subreddit, u/Bryce-Ross shared a still from the "Matrix Resurrections" trailer that shows Trinity throwing her head back and screaming, with the user noting that multiple faces reverberate in the space around Trinity when she screams — and they aren't all hers.

"This got me thinking that Neo and Trinity are occupying other bodies connected to the Matrix. The same as when an Agent bounces from one person to another," the OP wrote, speculating about how Trinity may have acquired this skill. Meanwhile, other fans pointed out that this also happens in the trailer when Neo glances in a mirror and his reflection glitches, with u/Futur_alliance suggesting that the blue-pilled Neo and Trinity in "Resurrections" are "different people in the Matrix." Some fans even suggested that one of the other faces seen in the trailer's Trinity scene is that of Jessica Henwick's Bugs.

In a lengthy post, u/MatrixRemixed delved into the ways director Lana Wachowski has explored identity and the "dichotomy between the self we show to the world and the self we identify as inside." They went on to explain that this has happened before in the "Matrix" films and that it is "intentional" that Trinity's face varies in the shot. Another Redditor offered their take on Trinity's multiple faces and connected it to the religious themes present in the franchise, but admitted that they "don't see a point in trying to figure this stuff out with the new movie being so close."

"The Matrix Resurrections" will be in theaters and available to stream on HBO Max on December 22.
