Has Neo (Keanu Reeves) lost his powers? New behind-the-scenes footage shows Trinity saving Neo as they leap from a building in The Matrix 4.
Lana Wachowski has returned to write and direct the fourth instalment of the groundbreaking Matrix series.
The Matrix 4 has commenced filming and last week Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss were spotted in China Town, San Fransisco where they greeted excited fans and took selfies with them.
Now leaked behind-the-scenes footage has appeared online showing Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in action as the deadly duo and lovebirds Neo and Trinity. The clip shows the pair leap from a building attached to safety harnesses.
It appears as though Neo’s powers fail during the leap and Trinity has to grab him to stop him from falling to his death.
Has Neo lost his powers in The Matrix 4?
It would make sense if Keanu maybe in a weakened state in The Matrix 4 because he sacrificed himself for peace at the end of The Matrix: Revolution. Perhaps he was reborn into the Matrix and has to rediscover his powers and ultimately relearn how to use them.
Not a whole lot is known about the plot of the sequel but the leaked clip may suggest that Trinity was The One after all. This, in fact, does support a very interesting fan theory.
Is Trinity The Chosen One in The Matrix?
Someone posted a theory on Reddit suggesting that Trinity is actually “The One.”
5 years ago Pastafarian0 shared a theory online; they wrote: “By the end of the movies it’s pretty clear that Neo is The One foretold by the prophesy. But I don’t think that he was always The One. Neo wasn’t born The One. In fact, he wasn’t The One for most of the movie.
“For most of Neo’s time on the Nebuchadnezzar, he’s pretty unremarkable. And the crew knows it. Even by normal standards, Neo is disappointing.”
“During Neo’s visit to the Oracle, he is told, in no uncertain terms, that he is not The One. We are reminded repeatedly that the Oracle is never wrong. Maybe the Oracle was motivating Neo by telling him that he is not, in fact, special. Maybe she was trying to calm him down by letting him know that it was alright to suck. Or, maybe she was right. Maybe Neo wasn’t the One when he visited the Oracle.”
“Fast forward to the heart pumping climax of the movie. Agent Smith and Neo are kung fu-ing it throughout the city until, finally, Neo is shot and killed by Smith. Bummer.”
Is Trinity The One? The Matrix 4 BTS video suggests so.
“But this is critical. Trinity said that the Oracle told her that she would fall in love, and that the man she fell in love with would be The One. She tells his dead body that she loves him and seals the deal with a necrophilic kiss. That’s it. Bam. Neo is resurrected with a whole new skill set, a new swagger, and gosh darn it a personality. Neo becomes the One because Trinity loves him. Had Trinity fallen in love with Morpheus, or Tank, or the Janitor that sweeps the floors in Zion, that man would have become the One.”
