It has been confirmed by Fandom that The Matrix Resurrections got an R-Rating from MPAA for violence and some language. It follows the same vein as the original trilogy wherein Reloaded got such rating for brief sexuality like the scene in the Zion rave party. Revolutions also got the same rating for sci-fi violence and language.

Almost two decades passed since the last release of the franchise which makes it more exciting and its return is one of the much-awaited comebacks this year with Keanu Reeves and Carrie Moss as Neo and Trinity along with Jada Pinkett Smith and Lambert Wilson. Newcomer Yahya Abdul-Mateen has big shoes to fill considering how iconic Lawrence Fishburne’s portrayal of Morpheus was.

The Matrix universe had been silent and it took them almost two decades for the fourth film. However, only Lana Wachowski will be back for this installment. The movie had been long-awaited and finally, it is here. The last of the trilogy showed that both Neo and Trinity died: Trinity from the crash of the hovercraft and Neo faced his death after he destroyed Agent Smith. The heroes died saving everyone.

Theories are circulating that Neo and Trinity will be revived to fight a new threat that will be arising after the original trilogy. Included in the theory was that Neo and Trinity would be time traveling to visit the past and the eras of Zion where they would possibly be meeting a young Morpheus who was then a rebellious firebrand.

The Matrix Resurrections is scheduled to release in theaters on December 22, 2021. It will also be available on HBO Max on the same date for online streaming.
