Twenty years after Neo followed the white rabbit out of his apartment, “The Matrix” is returning to theaters. The movie, which picked up four Academy Awards including Best Sound, will return to select theaters across the country for a one-week engagement in “Dolby Cinema at AMC.” The studio is celebrating the film’s 20th anniversary, and audiences can find the movie in over 135 “Dolby Cinema at AMC locations” in the United States starting on August 30th.
The original film in the trilogy released on March 31, 1999. Written and Directed by Lilly & Lana Wachowski, the movie features Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, and Hugo Weaving. “The Matrix” opened at number one against “10 Things I Hate About You” and The Out-of-Towners” with a $27.7M debut. “The Matrix” went on to make over $463.5M worldwide. While all of the films were financial successes, they were hit and miss with fans. The original movie sits with an 88% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and the franchise made over $1.6B worldwide.
“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 Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “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.”
“Warner Bros. is proud to re-release the groundbreaking motion picture The Matrix, for the first time in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos,” said Jeff Goldstein, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. “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.”
