New set videos from The Matrix 4 show off some intense stunt work. It looks like part of the movie might focus on Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) teaching Neo (Keanu Reeves) how to fly. Fans of the franchise were shocked to hear that Lana Wachowski was returning to make another movie and that Reeves and Moss were attached to star in it. They’re joined by Jada Pinkett, Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Gross, Jessica Henwick, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II this time around.
It’s tough to see from The Matrix 4 set videos, but it appears to be two stunt doubles for Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss leaping off a building in San Francisco. We have two different angles of the aforementioned footage, one view that is pretty far away, and another that is actually pretty close.
The two characters leap of the building, fall for a moment, and then stop in mid-air. They then bolt into the sky. According to people around the set, the video is the crew testing the safety of the stunt.
The stunt looks pretty amazing, even from watching it from footage shot on an iPhone. It appears that Lana Wachowski is going for a more realistic look for the movie, instead of relying purely on CGI to get the job done.
The Matrix 4 footage shows the use of wires to create the stunt, which should look great on the big screen. With that being said, the scene in question will more than likely be covered up in CGI. At least the stunt will be real, teasing an interesting plotline.
