Warner Bros. is releasing The Matrix: Revisited on DVD on November 20th (SRP $19.98). As near as we can tell, the new disc doesn’t include the film – it’s just a separate, behind-the-scenes disc with additional material on the making of the film. Here’s an excerpt from Warner’s press information:
“Been in The Matrix? Now take the next leap of understanding with The Matrix: Revisited. Experience the nuts, the bolts, the creative thunder of the cyberthriller that thrust moviemaking into an astonishing new dimension with never-before-seen footage from the original movie and exclusive reflections by those who lived it. Then go deeper with a look forward into the reality that is unfolding in real time: the sequels simmering to life at hidden locations around the world; an eye-popping first glace into The Matrix Anime – new dimensions that explain more about The Matrix. The Matrix: Revisited is the who, what, where, when and wow of a phenomenon that has just begun. It will make you dream in bullet time.”
Specifically, here’s what you’ll get: What is to Come? (which takes you behind-the-scenes on Matrix 2), What is Animatrix? (anime preview), What is the Matrix.com? (preview of new website), The True Followers (interviews with hardcore fans), The Dance of the Master (fight choreography of Wu Ping), The Bathroom Fight and Wet Wall (scene study with behind-the-scenes footage), But Wait, There’s More (music montage with never-before-seen footage from The Matrix) and 4 Easter eggs (Chase in the Alley, The Woman in Red, Gun Training and Juke Box-audio only). Interesting, no?
