Warner Home Video has announced that they will bring the highly anticipated 'The Ultimate Matrix Collection' to Blu-ray on October 14th. The seven-disc set will include five BD-50s - one disc for each of the three Matrix films, one for Animatrix, and one for "The Matrix Experience" - and two DVDs. Also included in the set will be a hard-cover book with photos and information from the films.

Video will be presented in 1080p VC-1 and accompanied by a Dolby TrueHD soundtrack. Extras for this release include:

3 Exclusive In-Move Experience BonusView features
35 hours of extras
Digital download of 'The Matrix'
Much more

...and it's also the rumored date for the new Indiana Jones on Blu-Ray! Shaping up to be an expensive month.

I thought they released two sets on HD DVD, one for the 'ultimate collector' whatever, and a standard box set? Are there no plans to just release the three full length features and the animatrix HD, without the other 3 discs and magazines/books, etc? There's no way I'm paying $90 for this thing on Amazon when half of the crap I'll never even watch.

Where is "here"?

Warner never even released the remastered first movie separately on DVD in the U.S.

Digital copy only for The Matrix. Could they be angling at a separate "digital copy SE" release of the first?

Where was the book when the Ultimate hd-dvd version was released?!

Bah, nothing inherently wrong with sweetening the deal now that it's coming to blu-ray, but I still want it.
post #38 of 774
are all the discs blu-ray discs? or are some of them DVDs, if so which ones?

Yes as Msgohan pointed out, it was in Sweden.

But I ended up buying the box anyway since the pricedifference between buying one standalone against the entire ultimatebox was marginal.

That's how I got my HD-DVDs--even before I had an HD-DVD player.

Its probably 3 blu-rays and 4 DVDs since thats what the HD DVD set was essentially. I bet they will throw the Animatrix in HD onto the first movie's blu-ray disc.

The articles said 5 BD50s. One for each movie and one for the Animatrix. Then another BD50 for the "Matrix Experience" and two DVDs. I wanna know what they're using all of that extra space for on the BD50s if it still comes with 2 DVDs of special features?

Each BD-50 is going to have about 20 GB of space left which means 100 GB for 5 BDs. The extras 2 DVDs are eyewash and it shows the lethargic attitude of WB who are never trying to figure out on how to create a new encode and skillfully squeeze the 2 DVD special features onto 5 Region Free BDs which will make the life easier for importers whose BD players are Region Locked for DVDs.

Even if the BDs are going to be 40+ GB in size it would be either due to the inclusion of multiple spoken language audio tracks or fake IME.

The DVDs included with the HD-DVD version were region free.

I only had Complete Matrix Trilogy on HD DVD. I still don't like the decision of including 2 DVDs with special features when there is going to be plenty of space left (and wasted as well) on the BD-50.
post #48 of 774
Why the hell can't they sell them seperately? I only want the first Matrix.This lack of choice sucks!!
post #49 of 774
Isn't one of the regular DVDs in the set gonna be the digital copy thingy? That leaves one more DVD to account for. . .
post #50 of 774
Has the Animatrix disc ever sold seperately, or has it always been bundle in a set? I would like to get Animatrix HD disc, but I already have the trilogy in HD DVD and don't want to duplicate it in Blu-Ray.
post #51 of 774
I got the great deal at CC and just sold the set for over twice the amount!

As mentioned earlier in the thread, The Animatrix will be released on Blu-ray separately in the UK.

I realy hope the Animatrix can be bought seperately as I also have the HD-DVD's of the 3 films and would only want the Animatrix BR.

I'm in the same boat, got the Ultimate Matrix Collection on HD-DVD and really don't need to re-buy them for the amount I watch, but dammit, Animatrix is awesome and I need it in HD with (at least) a TrueHD soundtrack.

I was lucky enough to go to one of the theatrical exhibitions of Animatrix, it was AWESOME, and the DVDs never really captured the full feeling of that exhibit...

The Animatrix in HD and the digital copy are enough reasons for me to buy it again,...
post #56 of 774
I guess the old argument about whether or not the content in the Animatrix was produced in HD has been settled.

Still not worth rebuying the set just for that IMO, Warner should have done it right the first time around.

Eventually all this stuff will be available seperately in the US.

Warner just knows (like Sony knew with Spiderman) that they can make more money selling the set because if they released them seperately almost everyone would buy the first film only at ~$25 instead of the set at ~$75-$100.

Yep, this is why they will make us wait awhile before they sell them seperately.
post #58 of 774
The Matrix is in my top 10 favorite movies but I'm not buying the set, especially since I can't resell 2 and 3 without the first one. I hope they eventually split them up!

I thought about it and I agree. I just decided to keep the HD set I purchased from CC for 19.99 (I think it was about that amount). It is stupid to sale it when it looks and sounds terrific. Plus I will still be recovering from an expensive September. ANd finally the box of the HD DVD complete set looks awesome!!!
post #60 of 774
I'll re-buy the Animatrix in 1080p if it's available separately in North America.

Yes. It was originally available on its own, and in a box with the soundtrack CD (the version I own).

I wish more box sets included soundtrack CDs! They give us extra disks with documentaries, but rarely a soundtrack CD.
