The "Matrix 4" gets its first reveal. Officially titled "The Matrix Resurrections," the trailer brought a lot of internet hype since it's a favorite among movie watchers. Fans have taken over Twitter to post their reactions and memes.
For what it's worth, its official site also announced 180,000 unique teaser videos that interested fans can unlock about "The Matrix Resurrections."
"The Matrix" ended its trilogy in 2003. However, its legacy remained as fans continue to featur blue pills, red pills, and a stream of green codes running across any available surface.
Almost 20 years later, "The Matrix" officially gets its continuation.
True to its name, "The Matrix Resurrections" is resurrecting its series. It is written and directed by Lana Wachowski. Actors Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss also return as Neo and Trinity, respectively. Newcomers like Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, and Jonathan Groff have been added to the film.
The official trailer was posted on Thursday. At the time of writing, the video already has over 13.4 million views.

Unfortunately, many on the internet are also disappointed. "The Matrix" character Morpheus, portrayed by Laurence Fishburne, was not seen in the trailer.
Many are shocked and skeptical. Would "Matrix 4" even be a great movie without Fishburne? No official update was revealed about the actor's involvement or lack thereof.
