Fans of the iconic franchise are patiently waiting for the new Matrix movie from director Lana Wachowski, which should be released in December 2021. Disregarding the events of the last two movies, our favorite heroes will gather once again to confront the Robo-squids, probably some agent Smiths, and whatever else the Matrix has to offer to save the world and everyone in it.
Warner Bros. recently showed us a fresh trailer where we saw Neo and Trinity 20 years after the first movie was released. Apparently, they’ve been doing their thing inside the system for two decades. Unfortunately, The Matrix Resurrection will not feature Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus. He was replaced by actor Yahya Abdul-Matin II, but he’ll do just fine from the looks of it.
Amazing, mind-boggling concept, unique approach to filming, deep philosophical themes, unbelievable special effects, and of course, the iconic actors helped the first Matrix movie stand out among other sci-fi flicks of its time. Speaking of actors, you won’t believe how much they’ve changed over the years.
1. Keanu Reeves – Neo
Neo is easily one of the greatest protagonists in the history of cinema. The never-aging actor Keanu Reeves, who by the way is 56, continues to conquer Hollywood one movie after another, even dipping into the gaming industry. Yeah, did you know he was the poster boy for the game Cyberpunk 2077? This handsome devil will live forever, and we’re all for it.
2. Carrie-Anne Moss – Trinity
53-year-old Carrie-Anne Moss, who played Trinity, continued her career but didn’t quite hit that sweet spot as Keanu did. Moss has starred in many movies and TV shows throughout the years, but her most memorable roles were in Pompeii, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil.
3. Laurence Fishburne – Morpheus
After the Matrix, Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus, has also starred in some amazing movies. You’ve probably seen him in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Passengers, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Drug Courier, and others. For a 59-year-old actor, he’s doing swimmingly.
