Will Matrix Resurrections be a woke nightmare?

This is just a hunch, but I think Matrix Resurrections is going to be a woke film. Lana Wachowski (formerly Larry Wachowski of the Wachowski brothers who brought us the original Matrix trilogy) is bringing Matrix Resurrections to theaters this December (and HBO Max at the same time, due to astoundingly inept Warner Brothers business decisioning).

The Wachowski brothers brought us the whole notion of Red Pilling someone. But clearly, they'd like to change what the Red Pill means.  They are going to want it to mean a traditional progressive liberal woke, not awakened to the truth about a society that is pushing that very wokeness hard, in an almost machinelike way.  

I see hints of veiled wokeness in the trailer. From the opening scene looking like it's San Francisco to the word "triggered" and a few other potential indicators, I'm worried about the film.

As much of a fan of two-thirds of the original trilogy as I am, I really am not looking forward to a re-imagining of what it means to be red-pilled. While there are also signs that the red pill still means what we've been using it to mean, those are secondary.  I hope I'm wrong but I don't think I am.


  1. Both of the "brothers" are now not brothers or however you want to say it. There is little hope for them putting out a show that isn't 100% wokified.
