Matrix revolutionized the sci-fi genre of Hollywood movies with its spine-chilling and never heard before the storyline. Now, the fourth edition after 17 long years aims to redefine the genre once again.
- Matrix 4 — Timeline and Release Date
- Will all the previous actors return for Matrix 4?
- What to expect?
- SPOILER ALERT!!!!
The Matrix’s last installment ended with Neo beating Agent Smith in a spectacular decade-defining battle. The architect gave his word to the oracle in the last scene of the Matrix Revolutions that he will free everyone else including Neo (Keanu Reeves) from the Matrix.
Matrix is a reality constructed by the AI in which the whole world is living without even knowing that they are living in a world that is simply algorithms laid out by the AI.
Morpheus, a person freed from the Matrix and the Captain of ship Nebuchadnezzar leads a group of people who are freed from the Matrix by him. Their goal is to free the whole world from the Matrix. In the end, Neo wins the fight but the end of The Matrix Revolutions left a lot of questions unanswered.
The year of resistance aka the real world in the movie is believed to be 2199 and the Matrix (a virtual reality) is set in the year 1999. Though it’s just a manipulation of time by the AI, it is still highly possible that we get to see time travel (inside or outside the matrix).
The possibility of Matrix 4 being set in a different time or timeline is very high which might lead the film exploring an alternate universe.
Sources have reported that the 4th installment of the Matrix will begin filming in early 2020. For a movie like Matrix where from filming to editing and everything will take a ton of time. The release is expected to happen in the mid of 2021 or maybe even later.
What to expect?
Since it has already been speculated by many hardcore fans that Matrix will explore Time Travel in its upcoming movie. There’s a high possibility that Neo might be an anti-hero in a different timeline.
However, watching Neo go against an evil version of himself won’t be unprecedented. It’s happened in The Matrix before, and recently happened in Ang Lee’s The Gemini Man starring Will Smith.
In short, Expect the Unexpected
The sci-fi action movie is known for its unique yet uncanny style of portraying fights with a dash of killer special effects on the silver screen. The mind-boggling storyline has always been an eccentric feature of this phenomenon of a movie.
The Matrix movies have always set the bar high for themselves. To sum it up, the fans can expect the unexpected. It’s the goddamn Matrix after all.
