    I know they cancelled the Matrix/Matrix Revisited 2-disc set that was supposed to come out in early May, but does anyone know if a "remastered" version of The Matrix is in the cards? I've heard the reason for the cancellation of the 2-disc set was because Joel Silver wanted to do a completely new transfer for the film and that wasn't an option for that release. It would be awesome to have a new transfer(and DTS to boot) and I'm sure it would sell if WB put it out in conjunction with Reloaded's DVD release(which is supposedly coming in October just in time for the theatrical release of Revolutions). If anyone has any info, please post. Thanks.

    From Joel Silver's comments, one is apparently coming. We don't know when though. I would guess not much more than a year. At latest, it would launch with Revolutions on DVD.

    I'll guess it will be out in a huge box set of all 3 films sometime next year.

    I've picked up the current DVD a couple of times now due to the price but always put it back when I remember the special edition. Should be worth it.

    As soon as I buy the original release I'll let you guys know because the day after they will announce a better version. I guarantee it. [​IMG]

    I hope they'll do a new edition of the Martix on it's own and not just a Trilogy boxset.
    There's no way I'm going to spend any money on the sequels.
