Viewers will be able to take the red pill in theaters with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos later this month.
Warner Bros. and AMC have announced plans to bring The Matrix back to theaters for its 20th anniversary. The special one-week engagement will begin on August 30 and will be presented via select Dolby Cinema 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 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."
Dolby Cinema is a premium theater format that uses the Dolby Vision laser projection system to deliver high dynamic range images with expanded colors, enhanced contrast, and deeper black levels. Likewise, Dolby Cinema also uses Dolby Atmos object-based mixing to create an immersive surround sound experience with overhead audio. In addition, Dolby Cinema at AMC theaters have been designed with comfort in mind, offering reserved recliners with seat transducers.
"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."
The Matrix: 20th Anniversary will be screened at more than 135 Dolby Cinema at AMC locations throughout the US. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets for one of the special showings.
