Warner Bros. released an unreleased clip of ‘The Matrix Resurrections’, featuring a Neo (Keanu Reeves) totally oblivious to the illusion he’s living in.
The scene shows Bugs (Jessica Hewnick) leading Neo into the Matrix, which is clearly more influenced by modern times, as videophones prevent those connected to the Matrix from realizing the truth, let alone landlines have become obsolete.
The preview also shows that they don’t need to run to phone booths and use landlines to get in and out of the Matrix, as they can teleport great distances using portals.
Bugs also explains that after going through a portal they are now in Tokyo, marking the first time that a specific location was mentioned inside the Matrix (previously, the Great Matrix City was simply known as from the city).

Neo gets a second chance in his life, and he gets a second chance with the person he says is “the only person I have ever loved”. The depth of why this movie was made is the feeling of being a love story between Trinity and Neo. “, did he declare.
