@Freya Thanks for the news.
Unable to open the video in the link supported by YouTube(due to local policy), so I watch the video entitled "Official E3 2019 Cinematic Trailer" of Cyberpunk 2077 in IMDb.
The game looks cool. But there is only one shot of Keanu at the end of the video, that is not generous enough for the appetite of the audience.
If any possibility that the game would extend to movies?

Later, I watch the video of Keanu Reeves on the stage of XBoxE3, "The feeling of being there ... of walking the streets of the future is really going to be breathtaking," said Reeves. Just after that, the interesting part was when a male fan yelling, "You're breathtaking!", and Keanu Reeves responded, "You are breathtaking! You are all breathtaking!". There are several reports about this activity. Well, the comments.
"Keanu Reeves just be showing up in stuff and making it like 100 times better."
"Keanu Reeves makes everything better, even E3."
"what companies think gamers want: video games, what gamers actually want: keanu reeves telling you that you are loved."

This is a fan work, a video clip mixed with two movies, the Last Samurai‎(2003) and 47 Ronin(2013), both in ancient Japanese style. I have no feeling for Tom Cruise, But this video is beautiful.
I have seen another video clip mixed with several movies by Sophie Marceau and Keanu Reeves, but cannot find it again.

https://people.com/movies/keanu-reeves-no-idea-internet-obsession-toy-story-4-premiere/

Keanu Reeves might have been named the internet’s newest boyfriend, but the Toy Story 4 actor missed the memo.

Speaking with PEOPLE on the Toy Story 4 premiere‘s red carpet on Tuesday, Reeves, 54, was surprised to learn of his new title.

“I’ve been what?” he said when asked how he felt about the web’s obsession with him.

“That’s, uh, that’s wacky,” the actor said. “Well, the positivity’s great.”

Reeves was on the acting level of Nicholas Cage before the John Wick movies in the eyes of the average IGN community member.

Incredible turn around. People went from
Mocking his one facial expression and monotone acting to actually being excited for him to be featured in their games.

You're not entirely wrong, and I consider myself part of the mob you're referring to... but I've been trying to figure out why.

I think there are a combination of factors - 1) John Wick (referring to the first, but still relevant despite diminishing returns on 2/3) was just that great. It was cool, but needed an actor with a lot of heart to sell the role, both in terms of visceral action and emotional loss - we believed him in the character fully. Which leads into

2) He's incredibly sincere. Keanu Reeves always just seems like that guy who'll throw himself into your project entirely because he appreciates its importance to someone. I could be reading into too much there, but it seems to be a consensus shared by those he works with, and genuinely shines through in his roles... sometimes too much. That one facial expression back in the day tended to be one where I felt his mind was going a mile a minute (in character)... which can make you look silly on camera.

3) He's gotten older. I genuinely think this may be the biggest key to his newfound fame. I don't think Keanu's attitude in Hollywood has changed all that much over the years - it's just a lot easier to buy that level of sentimentality and sincerity from someone who seems a little more world-weary than your typical Bill and Ted "woah".

All those combined, and now after all these years when Keanu really leans into Keanu, it seems less like a role that we laugh at and more like an actor in Hollywood being entirely unself-aware for once, and we're all suddenly in on the joke.

it's because he had several high profile releases in rapid fire since May 2019.
John Wick 3, YSL model campaign, Always Be My Maybe, Cyberpunk 2077 and Toy Story 4. Bill and Ted 3. His name is out there in social media for all these six projects in the span of one to two months consecutively.
That is why people are talking about him again. They can't help it when they see his name for all these different new projects everyday. I think anyone who had so many high profile projects (like Toy Story, John Wick, Modeling YSL and B&T as well as the game)in the news in the span of a couple of months would be talked about. Good for him for selecting these popular crowd pleasing projects. I forgot to add that he performed well in the released projects also :)

https://www.boston25news.com/news/watch-12-straight-hours-of-keanu-reeves-movies-this-weekend-in-brookline/961371280

BROOKLINE, Mass. - If you've ever wanted to spend a whole 12 hours watching Keanu Reeves do his thing on the big screen, now is your chance.

The artfully antique Coolidge Corner Theater is celebrating the beloved movie star this weekend with a midnight-to-noon marathon.

It will kick off Saturday night at midnight with a rare 35mm screening of Point Break and conclude Sunday at noon with Speed.

Everything in between will be kept a secret until showtime, but you can bet they'll all include the 80s-bred heartthrob.
