In late August, Warner Bros. revealed the name of the new Matrix installation as The Matrix Resurrections and announced the trailer at the CinemaCon. The trailer officially premiered a week later. Directed by Lana Wachowski from the original trilogy, the film is produced by Village Roadshow Productions. The first glimpse at the movie gave an idea about what happened to Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann-Moss’ characters Neo and Trinity, respectively. The movie has brought back several original cast members such as Daniel Bernhardt, Lambert Wilson, and Jada Pinkett-Smith with a series of new ones. Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Yahya Abdul Mateen II have also joined the franchise in mysterious roles.
The Matrix Resurrections is one of the most-anticipated movies of 2021, with dynamic cast members who have had successful movie careers of their own. Eighteen years after the last installment, each cast member went on to have successful careers. Here’s a peek at the net worth of the cast of Matrix 4.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II joined the cast of Matrix in a lead role as young Morpheus. The trailer showed Reeves’ Neo to have forgotten about his past, even Trinity. When he meets Abdul-Mateen’s character, the latter offers him a red pill saying the line, “Time to fly.” The actor confirmed his role via an Instagram post and captioning the name of his character. Abdul-Mateen has amassed a $2.5 million net worth from his famous roles in Aquaman, The Trial Of Chicago Seven, Us, and Get Out.
Carrie-Anne Moss ($4 million)
Playing the lead role of Trinity in the Matrix trilogy was a rewarding experience for Carrie-Anne Moss.

He received $10 million for the first installment and 10% of the movie profits and $15 million for the second and third installments with 15% profits.
