The Matrix Trilogy 4K Collection

I know what you’re thinking — all three movies in The Matrix franchise are streaming on HBO Max. And while that may be true, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions are all on Warner Bros.’ streaming service (and all in 4KUHD), those versions don’t come with the insane amount of content that accompany the three films in the Matrix Trilogy 4K Collection. Included with the set are nine discs of bonus content including multiple commentary tracks for each installment in the franchise, behind-the-scenes documentaries, and loads and loads of other features. Plus, you can still watch these movies when your internet inevitably goes down.
