Ultimate Matrix Box Set To Be Released On HD DVD

Postby Ian on Fri Mar 23, 2007 8:08 am

I'm sure all the HD DVD fanboys are having joygasms right about now. This Ultimate Matrix Collection includes 8 (yes EIGHT) discs, 5 of which are bonus discs.

The Ultimate Matrix Collection, for the hardcore Matrix fan, 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 Wachowski brothers' post-modern epic films. This collection will contain, for the first time, all three HD DVD versions of The Matrix series with more than 35 hours of bonus material in 5 double sided discs. The second offering, The Complete Matrix Trilogy, contains HD DVD versions of the three Matrix films in a 3-disc set, perfect for new and current Matrix fans who just want to see all three Matrix films in hi-definition.

Both The Ultimate Matrix Collection and The Complete Matrix Trilogy come with the In-Movie Experience (IME), an exclusive interactive feature that allows viewers to enjoy new ways of accessing interviews and other material while the movie is running. For these titles, the IME will let viewers experience via picture in picture the evolution of all The Matrix's ground breaking elements through the recollections of the cast and creative team.


Don't worry Blu-ray fans... a Blu-ray version will be released later thsi year.

Most if not all of the discs are double sided too, according to the specs I read.

All I can say to that is *ugh*.

I hope when this comes to Blu-Ray they utilize the higher capacity and don't force the flip disc issue.

I just read that all the extras are supposed to be standard definition only. I haven't seen it confirmed by press release though.

Still, I can't help but feel that Warner really dropped the ball in making this package. The price is insanely high, the discs are double sided, and the extras aren't even high definition...

I am a fan of Matrix, but can't see myself ever having the time to watch hours and hours of extra content.

I would be happy with a boxed set of just the movies, no extras at all.
