The Matrix is Returning To Theaters For Its 20th Anniversary

The 1999 action classic The Matrix is returning to theaters from August 30 to September 5 to celebrate its 20th anniversary only at Dolby Cinemas at AMC locations.

“Warner Bros. is proud to re-release the groundbreaking motion picture The Matrix, for the first time in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos,” said Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein. “Dolby Cinema offers moviegoers an unparalleled sense of realism in how they experience this game-changing film, making it a must-see event, whether for the first time or a return to The Matrix.” 

The Matrix is one of the most ground-breaking films ever made thanks to its incredible blend of incredible action and mind-bending philosophy. It’s hard to believe 20 years have passed since we first witnessed the “bullet time” effect on the big screen.

“Bringing The Matrix to life in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos pays homage to the masterpiece that the Wachowskis created 20 years ago,” said Doug Darrow, senior VP of Dolby Laboratories’ Cinema Business Group. “Movie lovers will be able to see and experience unforgettable sequences like bullets flying in slow motion with the utmost detail – transforming one of the most iconic sci-fi films of this generation.”

Watch The IT Chapter Two – Come Home Featurette

A new IT: Chapter Two featurette has been released featuring director Andy Muschietti promising to “crank up the horror” as novel writer Stephen King and the cast discuss how the sequel puts the characters front and center, making it a sort of “coming-of-age” tale.

The second part is written by Gary Dauberman from the book by Stephen King. Muschietti, once again, is at the helm. The movie will arrive in theaters on September 5.

IT debuted in September of last year to the tune of $123.1 million on opening weekend, the highest opening weekend ever for a September release, for a fall release, and for a horror movie.

The Dead Don’t Die Rises On Digital 9/3 & On Blu-ray 9/10

A quiet town finds itself under attack from the undead with the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled in the comedy, The Dead Don’t Die, arriving on Digital on September 3, 2019 and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on September 10, 2019 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Showcasing exclusive bonus features not seen in theaters including insight from the cast and filmmakers, as well as a closer look at the making of the film that takes fans deeper into this “giddy apocalypse with no way out” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker). Starring Academy Award®† winner Bill Murray (Olive Kitteridge, Lost in Translation, Ghostbusters), Adam Driver (Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, BlacKkKlansman) and Chloë Sevigny (“The Act,” Boys Don’t Cry), The Dead Don’t Die is a “hilariously fun” (Adam Patterson, Film Pulse) and irreverent film unlike any you’ve seen before.

Directed by indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch (Paterson, Only Lovers Left Alive), The Dead Don’t Die features a powerhouse of an ensemble cast including Tilda Swinton (Suspiria, Trainwreck), Steve Buscemi (Hotel Transylvania Series, Fargo), Danny Glover (Proud Mary, Lethal Weapon Series), Caleb Landry Jones (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Get Out), Rosie Perez (“Pure,” White Men Can’t Jump), Iggy Pop (Gimme Danger, Coffee and Cigarettes), Sara Driver (Stranger than Paradise), RZA (“Snowfall,” The Man with the Iron Fists 2), Selena Gomez (Hotel Transylvania Series, Spring Breakers), Carol Kane (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” Dog Day Afternoon), Austin Butler (The Intruders, “Arrow”), Luka Sabbat (“Grown-ish”) and Tom Waits (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, The Book of Eli).

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behavior. No one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing the town: The Dead Don’t Die – they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living – and the citizens must battle for their survival.
