If all you want for Christmas is to unjack from reality for a few hours, then your gift has arrived early in the form of The Matrix Resurrections, which arrives simultaneously Dec. 22 in theaters and online on HBO Max.
Neo, Trinity and Morpheus have returned in Lana Wachowski’s long-awaited sequel to the sci-fi trilogy that left off in 2003. Since we last saw our heroes, Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss) have been living their quiet blue pill lives in San Francisco — until a new Morpheus (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) reappears with a red pill out of their simulated existences.
How to Watch The Matrix Resurrections Online
Prefer to simulate the theater in your own home? The Matrix Resurrections will be available Dec. 22 to stream exclusively on HBO Max, so you can watch the movie on your smart TV, smartphone or tablet that supports the streamer’s app. The streaming platform offers plans with and without ads, and you’ll need the ad-free plan ($15 per month or $150 annually) if you want to watch the new film. The ad-free subscription also gets you access to hundreds of TV shows, movies and HBO original content, 4K HD video quality on select movies, personalized profiles for up to five users, a curated kids experience with parental controls and the ability to download content to watch online.
DirecTV or DirecTV Stream subscribers who also have an HBO Max account can sign into the streamer through the satellite video platform and watch The Matrix Resurrections on their TV, smartphone or tablet.
If you’re looking for a way to watch The Matrix Resurrections on HBO Max for free, it’s worth noting that the streamer currently isn’t offering any free trials.
