I'm guessing you're right about it being a matrix within a matrix. It's really the only way I can see explaining the 3rd film. 4 could basically pick up that way but it would be boring... unless they ended it with John Wick waking up from a weird dream. It would be worth at least a chuckle! ;)
I posted this in April of 2019 (kind of) jokingly.
This might very well be what the movie proves to be, I certainly hope so. :cool: (y)

TBH, I think I'm more excited to see Jessica Henwick kick some butt ;)

This was a good trailer, but I'm more curious about how they adapt the concepts from the previous films to 2021.

I'll watch it on HBO Max when it drops.

The trailer shows the same story beats as the original but it's gotta be more than just a rehash/reboot/soft reboot sequel right? Surely they wouldn't just go with a Force Awakens type movie? There has to be some twist or something.

I'm not a huge Matrix fan like others so it's not really something I have much interest in but I will say the shots of Neo in the elevator with everyone on their phones and he just looks around like "Are you guys serious?" are great. That's how I feel walking around seeing everybody buried in their phones lol. If the movie gives a commentary about how society is willingly 'plugging in', that could be interesting.

The Matrix was a cultural moment in 1999. The two sequels crapped the bed and everyone moved on.

Going back to it now . . . they are caught between catering to modern kids vs the old fans. The modern kids will need a full reboot (or at least a soft one like 'The Force Awakens') to make sense of it. But that will bore the fans of the originals who came back hoping for more.

The producers will probably try to compromise and end up disappointing both groups.
Wait.. you need wires plugged into the wall to go on the internet?!? That’s like a baby’s toy!

There's a couple of scenes in the trailer where Neo is in a club, & the scene in the original movie where Neo takes the red pill is being projected on the wall. Seems to hint at at least an in-universe acknowledgement of what's come before.

One thing I noticed first time watching the trailer, but just rewatched it to make sure, and yep. The pills from the orginal movie and this new movie are slightly different.
Some things in these movies can have a deep meaning, while other things are just,..."there" for no real reason or whatever.
Wonder if the pills being a bit differnt have a meaning?
It's only one of the Wachowskis directing instead of both this time.
I wonder if that will effect any other little changes, like the pills.
Who knows.

original (looks like nyquil/dayquil pills.)

I'd watch that movie... Heck if they connect them we already have!

So getting out of the Matrix now costs $100,000 a pop instead of $10 because they jacked up the price? :unsure:

I do think the pills will play a bigger role given that Neo is shown in possession of alot of blue pills that he throws down the drain.
