Choose your pill and see some clips in the new Matrix Resurrections teaser site

The Matrix was a very cool movie about guns and kung-fu inside a massive computer simulation where people can be pretty much whoever, and whatever, they want. It sounds like fertile territory for all kinds of equally good videogames, but for some reason that hasn’t really been the case. The Matrix Online MMO made it four years before being shuttered because of low subscriber numbers, and while Enter the Matrix is maybe better than we remember, it still wasn’t great: “Take away the Matrix setting, and you’re left with an action game that really does nothing new—and looks pretty average doing it,” we declared in a 55$ review from 2003 (via Metacritic).

Still, the influence of the films in videogames and beyond is clear—recall, for instance, when Gabe Newell said last year that “we’re way closer to The Matrix than people realize”—and very soon we’ll be returning to that realm for the first time (in theaters, at least) since The Matrix Revolutions in 2003. The fourth film in the series, The Matrix Resurrections, is slated to debut in December, and ahead of that Warner Bros has rolled out a teaser site for the film and the first official trailer, which will drop on September 9.
