‘The Matrix 4’ Storyline: What’s ‘Matrix 4’ about?
We don’t know for sure, but the Matrix trilogy didn’t end with as much finality as it might seem. Neo sacrificed himself to save the Matrix (and thus the machines called off their attack on Zion).
The Matrix is rebooted and is home to both the humans inside and some independent programs that the Architect did not anticipate. It is peaceful, but as the Architect hints that might not last long. Dun, dun, dun…
As expected, everyone involved with the fourth Matrix has been very tight-lipped about just what’s in store. Set photos have only really promised a motorcycle chase. Beyond that, there’s only been one, very sparse comment.
“It’s a very exciting relevant script,” Yahya Abdul-Mateen II told Entertainment Weekly. That’s it! We’ll just have to wait and see.
‘The Matrix 4’ Release date: When is ‘Matrix 4’ out?
The Matrix 4 was first scheduled for release on May 21, 2021 in the UK and US, before it was pushed back as a result of filming delays to April 1, 2022.
However, as mentioned above, in a pleasing development, Warner Bros has now moved the movie’s release forward to December 22, 2021 which will put it in competition with Spider-Man 3 (December 17, 2021), if both movies are released as currently planned.
Warner Bros is releasing all of its 2021 movies on HBO Max and in cinemas simultaneously in the US.
Instead , Warner Bros. Pictures will deploy a similar release strategy for the next 12 months. In a surprising break from industry standards, Warner Bros.’ entire 2021 slate — a list of 17 films that includes “The Matrix 4,” “Dune” and “The Suicide Squad” etc — will debut both on HBO Max and in theaters on their respective release dates.
So that means subscribers to the streaming service in the US will be able to watch the movie on December 22, 2021 as well.
Not yet, but if the release date remains as is, expect to get a first glimpse at the new film by the mid of the year.
The film is coming out by Warner Bros. Pictures theatrically on December 22, 2021. It won’t just be available in theaters next year, will also stream on HBO Max the same date.
