Matrix Collections Coming to HD DVD21 Mar, 2007 By: Erik Gruenwedel
The HD DVD format gets a major boost May 22 when Warner Home Video releases The Ultimate Matrix Collection and The Complete Matrix Trilogy for $119.99 and $99.99, respectively.
The special editions, which include HD DVD releases of The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, collectively comprise 8 discs and more than 35 hours of bonus material, in addition to three “Revisited” mini-features.
Both releases include HD DVD's In-Movie Experience (IME) interactive feature.
The Matrix trilogy stars truth-seekers Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) battling human-killing machines in a post-apocalyptic world.
The Matrix — released 12 times on DVD — was the first disc to sell 1 million units and has generated $1 billion in worldwide revenue since its 1999 theatrical release, according to WHV.
The studio plans to release “Matrix” titles on Blu-ray Disc later this year.
