Right now Amazon has The Ultimate Matrix CollectionBlu-ray box set on sale for only $24.99 (that’s 62% off the list price of $64.99).
This set contains each film in the Matrix trilogy – The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions – along with the animated anthology movie The Animatrix. Every disc is stocked with hours of informative supplements including critic and philosopher commentaries on the three live-action films, director commentaries on several segments of The Animatrix, behind-the-scenes documentaries, briefer featurettes exploring individual aspects of the movies, scenes filmed for the Enter the Matrix video game, and more. In addition to the four movie discs, the set also comes with an additional pair of bonus discs featuring documentaries about the philosophy and science behind the Matrix trilogy, multiple still galleries including production photos, storyboards, and theatrical posters, and an extensive media gallery with every trailer and TV spot created for the release of The Matrix and its sequels.
The Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski-directed epic Cloud Atlas will hit the film festival circuit, making its official debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Since we’ve seen so little of this film (outside of the usual leaked photos and end of principal photography photo) we were bound to see some official images from the set.
Check out two new images here below.
Entertainment Weekly has posted the first two images from the movie. In it, we get our first looks at Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, as well as Jim Broadbent and Ben Whishaw.
Even with Speed Racer‘s small cult following, The Wachowski’s last directorial effort proved to be a fruitless venture. But that didn’t stop Andy and Lana Wachowski from doing what they do best – making movies that stretch the imagination. I imagine that they will be recognized for just that when Cloud Atlas hits theaters this December.
Now since that film is in post-production, it’s time to see what’s happening with their forthcoming film Jupiter Ascending. Slowly but surely there are some things that are trickling out of the faucet and we are learning new things about the film.
We already know that Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum have claimed the lead roles in the film. But Vulture seems to have learned the plot of the Wachowski’s newest directorial effort.
It’s about damn time these two make up their minds.
With various projects being tossed around, be it a new Robin Hood film or an Iraq War drama, the pair known as the Wachowskis have finally decided on what their next project will be. Deadline is reporting that, with the shooting of their next film, Cloud Atlas, ending soon, the pair will next helm a project entitled Jupiter Ascending.
A couple of years ago, I made a post discussing how a 4th Matrix film was inevitable. When the post was initially published, it was met with some skepticism from Matrix fans. How could there be another movie if Neo is dead? Is Neo actually dead? Keanu Reeves, in a guest of honor speech at the London School of Performing Arts University, has finally clarified that there are indeed plans for more Matrix films.
It should come as no surprise that there are plans for a fourth and fifth Matrix movie. Besides the fact that combined with merchandising and home media sales the movies are money-makers, the development of the 3D filming tech adopted by James Cameron and the recent release of Tron: Legacy (sequel to a movie that was one of many influences on The Matrix) make it a prime time for the Wachowski Brothers to reignite their Matrix saga. In short, it’s good timing.
