With movies going to video so much quicker now adays, it's starting to seem almost like the movie Spaceballs with the idea of "Instant Cassettes". What with E2 coming on DVD in Novemeber, and Resident Evil coming out on DVD 4 short months after opening in theaters. Now some strange Matrix 2 & 3 news is coming out. The following news is from Videoeta.com.
2003 is set to be a busy year for the Wachowski brothers. The directors' anticipated sequel to The Matrix -- The Matrix Reloaded -- is scheduled for release in theaters on May 16 of next year. The third film (The Matrix Revolutions) will then premiere a scant 6 months later. The unusually quick succession of the sequels has lead to strange timing for their DVD release.
Rumors have put the video and DVD release of The Matrix Reloaded only three months after it bows in theaters. Reports say bros Andy and Larry will (in conjunction with those other brothers, the Warners, of course) release The Matrix Reloaded in August. The release is unusual even for the world of The Matrix. Normally, DVDs aren't available until approximately six months after theatrical release.
The DVD will supposedly be movies 1 and 2 with an extra disc of the usual bonus features and what-not. The final film in the trilogy will be released in yet another three-disc set in early 2004, according to published reports. Let's hope the Wachowskis have enough memory in their Palm Pilots to store all those dates for 2003.
MTFBWY and HH!!
