The Matrix 4: New Set Video Shows Keanu Reeves Filming A Scene

Filming has begun.

17 Comments

Filming on The Matrix 4 has begun in San Francisco, and videos and images from the set have emerged that provide the first look at Keanu Reeves in the upcoming action film.

In one scene, Reeves is seen blocking his eyes from the sun as he stares into the distance. A camera moves in before a director calls cut. Check out the video below, and another image further down.

Reeves returns in The Matrix 4 to play Neo once more. He's joined by Carrie-Anne Moss, who reprises her role as Trinity, and Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe. Among the new cast members for the movie are Priyanka Chopra, Jonathan Groff, and Neil Patrick Harris.

Hugo Weaving is not going to return as Agent Smith due to a scheduling conflict.

Lana Wachowski returns to direct The Matrix 4. It comes to theatres on May 21, 2021--which is also the release date for another Reeves-starring action sequel, John Wick: Chapter 4.

The first Matrix movie brought in $463.5 million worldwide, and it spawned two sequels: 2003's Matrix Reloaded--grossing $742.1 million worldwide--and Matrix Revolutions--taking in $427.3 million worldwide. For more, check out The Matrix Sequels' 34 Dumbest Moments to relive the weirdness.

I'm interested to see how this shapes up. I, like a lot of people, was very unimpressed with the final movie. Unlike a lot of the forums, I did enjoy the second movie a lot.

@thelostscribe: Reloaded had a nonstop pacing, cool action scenes, etc.. I like it too. But man, the whole "philosophical" crap was just so idiotic. The architect spouting nonsense is one of the silliest moments in hollywood history.

@gleencross: Yeah, it did get a bit heavy handed near the end. It was kind of cool, but I feel like it did turn into just word vomit and ended up being pretty anti-climatic.

@chubby170: ...since he has to spend the rest of the year looking like John Wick.

And yes, I don't expect this to be very good either.

@chubby170: That's probably just what he looks like in the real world, in which case they would film all those scenes first before cutting his hair for the scenes where he is in the Matrix.

I would be excited to watch this $equel if none of the Wachowskis were involved. Considering how the dead is coming back, literally, the plot of this movie have potential to be the worst of the series.

@id0ntkn0w7: actually, no resurrection in Revolutions. I stand corrected. Smith was dead and returned in the 2nd film, and Neo was resurrected at the end of the original. I'm not sure what's ambiguous about the biblical allegory being fulfilled at the end of Revolutions, with Neo dying in the Jesus Christ pose and the giant head saying "It is finished."

@id0ntkn0w7: Resurrection happened in all Matrix movies? Of course not, lol This will be the first time. Neo and Smith had an ambiguous ending, but Trinity was definitely killed for good. The only "explanation" would be the old fan theory about the matrix inside the matrix. If the Wachowskis follows reddit theories, just like JJ did with the last abominable star wars flick, then the final result will be something ugly to say the least.

@gleencross: how do you know what the plot will be? Did you get a copy of the script or something? All matrix movies were good so let's just wait for this one I'm sure it will be good as well!

@gleencross: Being worse than Matrix 3 would take some real doing.

Fortunately, after 2 and 3, I don't really have any investment in the series anymore, so if 4 is bad too, I wont be real upset.

@mogan: The dead will come back, so... Maybe Matrix 3 will looks like a masterpiece in comparison. But in the end, I also have low expectations. They are just cashing in on the recent Keanu success.

@sakaixx: I was wondering that too. I guess the choice is made. I don't mind it, honestly.

I just want Neo fight agents with cool music.
