The Matrix Resurrections is coming to theaters this December, and we finally have our first look at the movie. Unsurprisingly, it comes in a non-traditional format, with a teaser website, and a choice between the series’ iconic red and blue pills.

On the teaser website, whatisthematrix.com, fans are presented with a choice: If they take the red pill, they get a short narration from Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who takes on a Morpheus-like role of explaining that the world you know is not what it seems. Along with his explanation, we see the Matrix’s signature green scrolling code, intercut with a few brief scenes from the upcoming film. That includes Abdul-Mateen II battling Keanu Reeves’ Neo in a dojo reminiscent of the original Matrix film.

If you choose the blue pill, the site gives you narration from Neil Patrick Harris, who explains that the reason you’re here is because you’re having trouble distinguishing reality from fiction. The blue pill teaser then cuts between a few more scenes from the movie, specifically scenes of Neo struggling with the Matrix and trying to determine if it’s real or not.

Every time you select either of the site’s two options, you’re presented with different clips, which are likely part of the trailer that Warner Bros. debuted at CinemaCon last month. Each of these clips is very brief and it seems like there are only a few options in each spot that the site can show you, but it’s still a nice first look at the highly anticipated sequel. Given the procedurally generated nature of the teaser (which even tells you what time it is the minute you watch it), you’ll have to watch each variation multiple times to get your early dose of The Matrix Resurrections.

The full trailer for The Matrix Resurrections will debut Thursday, Sept. 9.
