After a very long wait, the trailer for The Matrix 4, now known as The Maxtrix Resurrections, is finally here. Coming to theaters and HBO Max on December 22, the new movie features a couple of your favorite characters from the series, alongside some new additions.

The trailer opens up with Neo, who is now Thomas Anderson, talking to a therapist, played by Neil Patrick Harris. Neo has been having dreams--more like flashbacks--to moments where he was unplugged and visions of the Matrix coding as well. In the real world, Neo seems bored and stuck in a rut. However, that changes when he meets Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), but the two don't realize their history together. Watch the trailer for yourself below.

There sure are a lot of blue pills in this. From what it seems like in the trailer, The Matrix Resurrections may be about Neo reconnecting with who he truly is--The One--and getting unplugged once again, unless this Neo is simply a computer program whose had most of his memories wiped. It's very hard to tell, as most of the footage from the trailer probably doesn't tell the full story for the movie, though there could be an unexpected connection.

Of course, Reeves is sporting what's now his signature long hair, which makes him look a bit like John Wick. The Matrix Resurrections will have another connection to that series by way of John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who will both be helping director Lana Wachowski choreograph the fight sequences. Both men worked on the Matrix trilogy in the past, and Stahelski was Neo's stunt double in the first film.

The new additions to the franchise include Priyanka Chopra (Baywatch), Jessica Henwick (Love and Monsters), Danial Bernhardt (John Wick), and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen).

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