Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Theaters have announced that the upcoming sequels to the smash hit sci-fi film The Matrix will be released on IMAX's 70mm screen format. The first of the two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded, will be released nationwide on May 15, 2003 in the 35mm format and is tentatively scheduled for a June 6th release in over 35 IMAX theaters. The third Matrix film, The Matrix Revolutions, will be the first major Hollywood film to simultaneously debut in both the 35mm and 70mm IMAX formats on November 5, 2003. Several major motion pictures including Imagine Entertainment's Apollo 13 and 20th Century Fox's Star Wars: Episode 2 - Attack of the Clones have been shown in the IMAX format however these releases came long after their original theatrical release.

The Matrix on DVD has become a standard for sound and picture in the world of high-performanec home theater. The DVD release of the film was so successful that Warner Bros released “The Matrix Revisited” a documentary about the making of the film and is soon releasing The Animatrix, a collection of animated shorts inspired by The Matrix. Even if the upcoming sequels to the Matrix don’t live up to the hype created by the success of the original film, they are sure to be spectacular home theater demos, and being able to see them first in the IMAX format should be a mind bending experience.
