Warner Bros. revealed the official title and first glimpse of the highly anticipated "The Matrix 4" Tuesday. 

The fourth installment of the franchise is titled "The Matrix: Resurrections," in which Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity respectively.

The first look of the movie was unveiled at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas on Tuesday. The event began Monday and will go on till Thursday.

The first glimpse of the movie shows Reeves speaking with a therapist, played by Neil Patrick Harris. In the trailer, the actor can be seen using his pre-Matrix name, Thomas Anderson.

"Am I crazy?" he asked the therapist. "We don't use that word in here," Harris' character replied.

In the next scene, Neo greets Trinity at a cafe and she replied, "Have we met?" The scene hints that they don't remember each other.

The actor is later shown consuming pills and looking at himself in the mirror, with Jefferson Airplane's 1967 song "White Rabbit" playing in the background. As the pills affect his body, Neo can see himself as an old man in the mirror. A woman with blue hair asks Neo to follow her if he wants to learn the truth.

The trailer concludes with Jonathan Groff, a new addition to the franchise, saying, "After all these years to be going back to where it all started… back to the Matrix."

Before the trailer was revealed at the event, Reeves spoke about how the franchise impacted his life. "The first Matrix felt like something beyond yourself… You'll hear the sentence 'The Matrix changed my life.' I say, 'Thank you, it changed mine too.'"

Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson and Daniel Bernhardt will also reprise their characters from the previous movies.

The movie is helmed by Lana Wachowski, who co-directed the first three installments with his sister Lilly Wachowski. The brother-sister duo also wrote the three movies.

"The Matrix: Resurrections" will also feature Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who was previously seen in "Quantico," "Baywatch" and Netflix's "The White Tiger." The movie is slated to hit the theaters on Dec. 22.
