An action-packed trailer for the long-awaited sequel to The Matrix has been released by Warner Bros.
The Matrix Reloaded opens on 23 May
The minute-long series of clips from The Matrix Reloaded offers a glimpse of the action sci-fi feature, due for release on 23 May.
It mirrors the first film's combination of acrobatic martial arts fight scenes, high-octane car chases and spectacular special effects.
Warner Bros has also released a short film going behind the scenes to show the movie in production.
It gives an insight into some of the hi-tech tricks and choreography used to create the film's memorable combat segments.
The second movie in the Matrix trilogy will get its world première at this year's Cannes Film Festival on 15 May.
It sees Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss reprise their roles, with Jada Pinkett Smith as a newcomer to the cast.
The trailer features all of the main players embroiled in various conflicts with their enemies, amid its predecessor's trademark gothic-style atmosphere.
The first movie in 1999 was an award-winning global box office hit.
It won four Academy Awards and made more than $460m (£294m) worldwide.
The final part of the trilogy, The Matrix Revolutions, will be released in November.
