Legendary video game auteur Hideo Kojima seemingly teased the upcoming The Matrix Resurrections movie on Twitter, sharing a link to an official website of the beloved sci-fi franchise.
It's been 18 years since the release of TheMatrix Revolutions, the third installment of the series directed by the Wachowskis, but the franchise is reviving itself with the release of the fourth film this December, and fans are excited to find out more about the highly-anticipated sequel directed and written by Lana Wachowski.
On Twitter, Kojima recently teased the What Is the Matrix website, which was updated to show video loops of the franchise's iconic neon green code animating vertically down the screen. TheMatrix.com also showed this visual, and fans have started speculating whether Kojima is somehow involved with the production of the upcoming film, or if a tie-in game is in development. It's likely that Kojima may be just acting as an influencer to promote the upcoming, or is just a fan of the franchise like the rest of us.
The reason why the websites were update remains a mystery, but Warner Bros. may be preparing to release the first trailer for Matrix Resurrections, and the updates may be part of a promotional campaign. A trailer was revealed along with the film's official title at CinemaCon 2021, but the trailer hasn't been released publicly yet.
Matrix Resurrections stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Eréndira Ibarra, Priyanka Chopra, Andrew Caldwell, Brian J. Smith, Ellen Hollman, and Christina Ricci.
Epicstream also reported about the reason why Lilly Wachowscki didn't return to directMatrix Resurrections with her sister, Lana.
