Both of The Wachowskis‘ 2003 sequels The Matrix Reloaded” and The Matrix Revolutions starring Keanu Reeves are coming INDIVIDUALLY to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 2nd via Warner. This news comes in an early alert to retailers, namely Amazon. Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed, but you can likely expect them to be identical to the first film (already available on 4K). Still, stay tuned for official word on all that. The two films are both available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. Click on their titles or artwork above for links.

“The Matrix Trilogy” with Keanu Reeves is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in October

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.

FOX also plans to bring “Predator 3-Movie Collection” to 4K UHD Blu-ray in August

It sure seems that Fox Home Entertainment also plans to bring a “Predator 3-Movie Collection” to 4K UHD Blu-ray on the same date as the first film, August 7th. The collection will include the films “Predator” (1987), “Predator 2” (1990), and “Predators” (2010). Those films were directed by John McTiernanStephen Hopkins, and Nimród Antal. Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed, as the studio has yet to even officially announce either this or the individual release of the first film – as I had previously reported on.

I actually found this just browsing around, and at this point I wouldn’t even call it a “rumor” anymore, as we well know that the first film is coming, but now get a confirmation (of sorts) via a PRE-ORDER listing over at Amazon for this, carrying the exact same release date (8/7). Stay tuned for further updates. Also remember that the first film, “Predator“, is (as mentioned) getting its own individual release on 4K UHD Blu-ray.

UPDATE: It appears that we are going to also see individual releases for both sequels “Predator 2” and “Predators” on 4K UHD Blu-ray as well. No pre-order listings are available yet on Amazon, but stay tuned for an update when they become available. The artwork for the two titles can be found below.
