THE THREE FILM SERIES FROM THE WACHOWSKIS
WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 4K RESOLUTION WITH
HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE (HDR)


2003’s The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions will also be available on 4K UHD.


BURBANK, CA, August 14, 2018 – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that The Matrix Trilogy, featuring 1999’s acclaimed sci-fi action classic The Matrix along with the sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions (both 2003) will be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD on October 30th, 2018. Written and directed by the Wachowskis (The Matrix Trilogy, Cloud Atlas, Jupiter Ascending, Sense8) and starring Keanu Reeves as Neo, Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, The Matrix Trilogy is widely considered to be one of the most influential film franchises in recent history. The Matrix was released on 4K UHD in May 2018.

Written and directed by the Wachowskis and produced by Joel Silver, The Matrix won four Academy Awards* and revolutionized the sci-fi action film genre. The 2003 sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, were also written and directed by the Wachowskis and produced by Silver. The films were distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and produced by Village Roadshow Pictures and Silver Pictures.

The Matrix Trilogy 4K UHD release, along with the 4K UHD releases of The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, are from a new scan of the original camera negative and is the first remaster of the films in nearly 15 years. The 4K UHD remasters were supervised by director of photography Bill Pope (The Matrix Trilogy, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, Baby Driver).
4K Ultra HD** showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider color spectrum, offering consumers brighter, deeper, and more lifelike colors for a home entertainment viewing experience like never before.

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs of The Matrix Trilogy, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions will feature Dolby VisionTM HDR that dramatically expands the color palette and contrast range and uses dynamic metadata to automatically optimize the picture for every screen, frame by frame. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc of The Matrix Trilogy, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions will also feature a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar. Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.

All discs also include 5.1 audio.

The Matrix Trilogy will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack for $70.99 SRP and features Ultra HD Blu-ray discs with the feature films in 4K with HDR and remastered Blu-ray discs of The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack for $29.99 SRP each and feature an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature films in 4K with HDR and remastered Blu-ray disc of the films.

Fans can also own The Matrix Trilogy, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions in 4K Ultra HD via purchase from select digital retailers beginning on October 30th.

SYNOPSIS:

THE MATRIX TRILOGY
The Complete Matrix Trilogy presents the complete adventures of machine battling truth-seekers Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) in all three of the Wachowskis ground-breaking monumental sci-fi feature films.

THE MATRIX
Perception: Our day-in, day-out world is real.

Reality: That world is a hoax, an elaborate deception spun by all-powerful machines of artificial intelligence that control us.

Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne lead the fight to free humankind in the see-and-see-again cyberthriller written and directed by the Wachowskis, and winner of four Academy Awards.

THE MATRIX RELOADED

NEO. MORPHEUS. TRINITY.

They’re back for the powerful second chapter of The Matrix trilogy, and exciting new allies join them in the struggle against foes who are cloned, upgraded and closing in on humanity’s last enclave. Back, too, are The Wachowskis and producer Joel Silver, expanding their vision with a spectacle that rocks the senses.

WHAT IS THE MATRIX?

Who created The Matrix? The answers lead to more worlds of bold possibility and to a destiny that passes from revelations to Revolutions.

THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS

THE REVOLUTION IS NOW: The Matrix Revolutions.

NEO. MORPHEUS. TRINITY.

They and other heroes stand on the brink of victory or annihilation in the epic war against the machines in the stunning final chapter of The Matrix trilogy. For Neo, that means going where no human has dared – into the heart of Machine City and into a cataclysmic showdown with the exponentially more powerful renegade program Smith. For The Wachowskis and producer Joel Silver, that means soaring beyond the amazing visual inventiveness of the first two films.

I am glad that they will also be released individually because I could not wait and I bought The Matrix movie on it's own.

I didn't really watch all the content in the Animatrix disc that came with the BluRay trilogy set, but I'm surprised it wasn't added to this set, even as just a BD disc. Animatrix had some interesting stories that added to the Matrix Universe

I think I'll wait to see pricing. The original Matrix was an instant classic, and I was pleased to get a UHD copy, but the two sequels don't rise to that level.

I liked the other two. How can you pass up the highway scene in the second one. And I watched the third one in an all Wilson setup back in the day, on DVD I think and it was great. I liked all three TBH. The others may not rise to the level of the first one, but I don't think they were horrible. I was a very late arrival to the first Matrix movie. But when I saw it and I was impressed. Like I said, I am fan of all three for the story and action. But I understand that many people didn't like 2 or 3. I guess I am in the minority.

I preordered the trilogy two days ago although the first is the strongest but each of the sequels contain some great scenes. Can’t wait!

No doubt. The highway scene and some other moments/scenes in Reloaded should be demo worthy. I used that highway chase scene as my go-to audio demo for years when I first got that dvd. One of the best action movie scenes ever IMO!

Basically the entire last hour of Revolutions is straight up audio bliss! Machine voice, Smith/Neo fight, etc.....that last hour of Revolutions is still one of my all time favorite bass/audio rides in the HT!

I like all three of the films also. Will have to keep an eye of the price of the set, fall is that time of year where money flies out the door more for needs then wants. (Not that I'm happy about that ).

One of the nice things that Warners did for the included Blu-ray Discs is use the new video master AND the Atmos re-mix. So it's not just the 4K discs that benefit.

It definitely does, and if you have nothing better to do, you can watch all of the segments and figure out where in the timeline they all belong and do an ultra-marathon with a peck of crazy disc changing..... Yes, I've done this as I have no social life.....

no pre-order for me, least not right now with Warner's current pricing strategy: the pre-order price for the entire trilogy is cheaper than the two individual sequels. the cheapo in me just can't make peace with neither option: get the trilogy then deal with the additional copy of the first movie which I already have, or get just the sequels but cost more money...

Samuel L. Jackson? I haven't watched Reloaded in years, but I don't recall him in it. (IMDB doesn't show him in the credits, either.) Do you mean Laurence Fishburne?

That speech is indeed Lawrence Fishbourne and nothing wrong with that dance scene btw.

I am in the camp of people who really loved the original movie (it was a preorder for me on UHD and I was not disappointed) but did not care for the other two, although some scenes in each of the second and third movies are great demo scenes for a home theater. I think that I will first rent the two sequels and see what they look/sound like before deciding whether to purchase them or not. But even if I do elect to buy them, I'm waiting for a Black Friday special.


By the way, I do not know about the others, but I have a huge list of movies that I'm hoping will make it onto the BF special list at some store! My wallet could take a big hit that day if my wish list comes true!

I feel the same way, but I will admit I have not watched the 2nd and 3rd installments since they were in the theaters. I wonder if they have aged better and will be more enjoyable the second time around.

Considering how excellent the Atmos treatment was for the first one I will look forward fort the other two. Sure they are not as good as the first one but still enjoyable to watch.

Agreed. To me it was the best thing to come out of this franchise.

Good point. I too have not seen the two sequels since they were released in theaters. That's why I think a UHD rental makes a lot of sense. It will tell us if they have aged better and if the replay value is there. I generally do not purchase movies unless I feel the replay value is there, although now and then I will purchase a movie just to use a demo disc for my home theater.

Haha. It could be worse. At one point, I went so far as to rip each of the Animatrix segments, creating individual MKV files for each one (and the films), and then lining them and the movies up all in chronological order. I wonder what happened to that old ultra Matrix mega mix of mine? Oh, well. Looks like I'll have to recreate it. That made for a pretty epic marathon.
