    Posted Tue Aug 22, 2023 at 04:44 PM PDT by
    John Wick: Chapters 1-4 Lionsgate Blu-ray

    Get all four films in the John Wick franchise starring Keanu Reeves in a slick Blu-ray boxed set on October 17. No word on a 4K UHD Blu-ray set, however.

    In this stylish, electrifying action series, legendary hit man John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is forced back into the underground world of assassins, where he embarks on a ruthless quest for revenge and redemption. This complete collection of John Wick films features four art cards, along with seven pieces of interchangeable cover art. In John Wick, young thugs push John into a merciless rampage, while a blood oath sends him to Rome in John Wick: Chapter 2. John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum sees an army of assassins hoping to collect the $14 million bounty on John’s head, and in John Wick: Chapter 4, a powerful enemy with global alliances emerges, turning John’s old friends into new foes.

    John Wick: Chapters 1-4

    The Blu-ray + DVD + Digital package will most likely include Dolby Atmos soundtracks as with the previous releases.

  • The Matrix Resurrections Now Available on Certain Digital Platforms and on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray March 8

    Posted Tue Jan 25, 2022 at 08:42 AM PST by
    The Matrix - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray announcement

    The next film in the epic science fiction saga stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith and Neil Patrick Harris.  

    Lana Wachowski tries to resuscitate the genre-defining franchise that has been lying dormant for nearly two decades and sends it back down the rabbit hole with The Matrix Resurrections -- currently available for Premium Digital Ownership (or rental) on certain platforms and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on March 8.  In case you missed it, be sure to check out our theatrical review here.

    In The Matrix Resurrections,” return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it. To find out if his reality is a physical or mental construct, to truly know himself, Mr. Anderson (Keanu Reeves) will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. And if Thomas…Neo…has learned anything, it’s that choice, while an illusion, is still the only way out of—or into—the Matrix. Of course, Neo already knows what he has to do. But what he doesn’t yet know is the Matrix is stronger, more secure, and more dangerous than ever before. Déjà vu.
