    "No one can be told what The Matrix is...You have to see it for yourself!"
    New Cutting-Edge Companion to The Matrix,
    with Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Matrix Sequels
    and The Matrix Anime Project,
    Premieres November 20th from Warner Home Video
    Burbank, Calif., September 12, 2001 -- The Matrix Revisited -- a unique 2½
    hour companion to the four-time Academy Award®-winning The Matrix with new
    behind-the-scenes footage from the original film and an exclusive look into
    the sequels -- will be introduced on DVD and VHS November 20th by Warner
    Home Video.
    This just-completed project, a first-of-its-kind look at the development of
    a ground-breaking sci-fi trilogy, illuminates the phenomenal success of The
    Matrix with never-before-seen footage from the original film, new interviews
    with stars and filmmakers (Keanu Reeves, Lawrence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne
    Moss, Hugo Weaving, the Wachowski brothers, producer Joel Silver and fight
    choreographer Master Yuen Wo Ping), background on the origins of The Matrix,
    how Academy Award®-winning special effects were developed and the actors'
    grueling training regimens.
    In addition, viewers will get a sneak peek of behind-the-scenes footage from
    The Matrix's upcoming sequels and a preview of The Matrix anime project
    including a first look at sketches, storyboards, interviews and footage with
    the animators.
    The DVD has more than three hours of hidden features including 188 minutes
    of music and seven minutes of concealed bonus video material. The hidden
    features are known as Easter Eggs and accessible only to viewers who are
    able to discover them.
    The Matrix Revisited will be available on DVD for $19.98 SRP and on VHS for
    $14.95 SRP. Street date is November 20. Also available will be a 2-pack
    containing The Matrix Revisited and The Matrix for $39.98 SRP on DVD and
    $29.97 SRP on VHS.
    The Matrix revolutionized science-fiction action films and boggled the minds
    of moviegoers, becoming one of the most successful sci-fi films of all time,
    with a domestic box-office gross of nearly $171.5 million. The DVD was the
    first ever to reach sales of three million units. Voted "DVD of the Year"
    by the Video Software Dealers Association at the first annual DVD Festival
    2000 Awards, it has sold 8 million units to date on DVD and VHS combined,
    and its fiercely dedicated fan base has spread feverish anticipation of The
    Matrix sequels across the Internet.

    Looks like another attempt to milk this movie even more. I think I'll pass.
    Eventually I am sure there will be a trilogy box set with the "Revisited" disc along with more supplemental material.

    Have to give kudos to Warner. Rather than making all this bonus material available only if we re-purchase the movie, (Like Universal has done) you offer the additional disc to us seperately, for those of us who already paid for the movie.
    Since the feature lists looks awesome, and I just love The Matrix, I may be left with no choice but to buy this one!

    3 hours in Easter eggs?!?! Motherf*cker!
    I don't want to have to remember that many codes or button configurations. I'm gonna have to write this stuff in a binder and keep it next to the DVD.

    Other than that, awesome package.

    It says only 7 minutes of Easter eggs, so won't be that bad. I wonder though if they'll ever make a DVD that will hide the command to start the movie so you won't be able to watch it til you find it? [​IMG]

    Warner could have at least given us a full bit rate DD track, or even better a DTS track. PASS!
