Jan 04, 2022 Choosing The Red Pill: Mercedes-Benz G-Class Featured at the Premiere of “The Matrix Resurrections”
The highly anticipated film, “The Matrix Resurrections,” celebrated its U.S. premiere at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco on December 18. Following an 18-year hiatus, the fourth installment of The Matrix franchise was met with high praise at the event, made even more special with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class featured inside a massive red pill display.
At around 39 feet long, 13 feet wide and 11 feet high, the big red pill features an AMG G63 in selenite grey inside it.
Most moviegoers are familiar with Neo, the main character in the film, who is once again faced with the decision to take the red or blue pill. If he takes the blue pill, he remains in the everyday life of the simulated world of the Matrix. If he chooses the red one, he escapes from the alien-determined life into the unknown real world and once again fights against the rule of the machines.
“The G-Class and the red pill go very well together: Both stand for freedom, individuality, and self-determination,” said Dr. Emmerich Schiller, CEO Managing Director Mercedes-Benz G GmbH and Head of the Off-Road Vehicle Product Division at Mercedes-Benz AG. “We are delighted to support Warner Bros. Pictures with the worldwide cinema release of ‘The Matrix Resurrections’ with an extraordinary and attention-grabbing installation.”
In the film, the off-road icon G-Class also takes part in a fast-paced chase. In a G 550 (U.S. model), more rebels pave the way for Neo and Trinity, the other main character, to escape from the Matrix.
