Retailer Best Buy will be getting three Exclusive Steelbook 4K UHD Blu-ray releases for The Wachowskis‘ films “The Matrix“ , “The Matrix Reloaded“ , and “The Matrix Reloaded“ on October 30th. All three Steelbook releases are available for PRE-ORDER now over at Best Buy. Click on their titles or artwork for links. More information about the releases can be found on the original news story about the individual releases. There will also be a box set of “The Matrix Trilogy“ released on 4K UHD Blu-ray the same day, October 2nd. Below, after the break, you can find the remaining artwork for the Steelbooks for the two sequels.
The Wachowskis‘ “The Matrix Trilogy” starring Keanu Reeves is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 2nd via Warner. This news comes in an early alert to retailers. The box set will include the following films:
- “The Matrix” (1999)
- “Matrix Reloaded” (2003) – NEW to 4K!
- “Matrix Revolutions” (2003) – NEW to 4K!
Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed, but if the first film (already available on 4K) is any indication, I’d say you can expect the two sequels to get Dolby Vision, HDR10 forms of High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos sound. This has not yet been announced (rather confirmed). As you’ll notice on the cover art it only states HDR, with no indication of Dolby Vision. However, Warner never indicates that on that part. Just worth pointing out. “The Matrix Trilogy“ on 4K UHD Blu-ray is available now for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon, but not yet at Best Buy. Lastly, be sure to check out our review of the first film, “The Matrix“ (as mentioned) already available on 4K. Stay tuned for official announcements regarding this box set.
UPDATE: These films will be released individually on 4K UHD Blu-ray in both standard and Steelbook packaging. Info about the standard individual releases can be found HERE, and information about the Best Buy Exclusive Steelbooks can be found HERE.
The 2018 Matthew Ross directed film “Siberia“ starring Keanu Reeves is slated for a September 18th release to Blu-ray Disc via Lionsgate. The film received some horrible reviews during its theatrical run. In fact, it carries one of the lowest ratings on Rotten Tomatoes with just 8% (at time of writing this). Yikes! Looks like some critics were maybe quick to rush to judgement on this one? Tech specs for the release include full 1080p HD video in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD 5.1 MA sound. UPDATE: This title is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon.
Bonus materials slated to be included on the release are amazingly complex, I’ll let you sort through this massive amount of material listed below.
- “Passion and Intrigue: Bringing Siberia to Life” Featurette
Yep, that much. Amazing studio! Further below, after the break, you’ll find the official announcement for this release.
