- Keanu Reeves has reprised his role as Neo
- The trailer will release on September 9
- Priyanka Chopra is the latest addition to the film
Let’s just say that the makers of Matrix 4 decided to share an update on the film in the most unconventional manner. To begin with, the film’s trailer release date was announced – September 9 it is. Secondly, the viewers were given two options to chose from (more on that later). Priyanka Chopra, who is a part of the project, shared an update on the film by sharing a poster of sorts. “And it’s almost time to take that pill! Trailer Thursday at 6AM PT (6:30pm IST),” she wrote. Along with that she shared a link, so that fans could be a part of the “Matrix experience.” The interactive link offers the option of picking from two pills – a blue and a red one. Clicking on different pills, redirects the viewers to different “realities” (much like the film).
Clicking on the red pill leads to a voiceover by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, where he says, “This is the moment for you to show us what is real but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Could be this is the first day of the rest of your life but if you want it, you gotta fight for it.”
Clicking on the blue pill offers a voiceover by Neil Patrick Harris, wherein he reasons that one is having trouble distinguishing reality from fiction.
This is what Priyanka Chopra shared:
And it’s almost time to take that pill!!!
