The Matrix fans may now know the franchise's upcoming fourth film's title. The film is set to debut in 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max. Based on a photo that a makeup artist took of a gift given to the production's crew when filming wrapped, the title of The Matrix 4 is The Matrix Resurrections. This keeps Matrix sequels' pattern of having "r" titles going, following The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. It also speaks to the original trilogy's messianic theme, with Neo/"the One" being seen by some as a Christ-like figure. Lastly, the title speaks to the sequel starring Keanu Reeves as Neo, who sacrificed himself to reboot the Matrix in the third film of the trilogy, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, who died earlier in the same film.
