USA The Matrix re-released Jan 12 2010 in Standard Amaray Case

The Matrix Blu-ray

'The Matrix (Non-digibook)' Blu-ray Announced
Mon Dec 28, 2009 at 02:00 PM ET
Tags: Warner Brothers, Disc Announcements (all tags)

Digibook haters will finally be able to pick up the Wachowski Brothers' Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, it seems Warner Brothers is preparing 'The Matrix' starring Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne for a non-digibook Blu-ray release on January 12.
Specs and supplements haven't been announced, but the disc likely will be the same as the previously released digibook version.

Source:HighDefDigest


.... I am not a fan of this movie however I'm sure theirs a lot of people who are.. if you don't like digibooks I'm sure youll be looking foward to this, i can't wait until The Green Mile gets rereleased nondigibook.

I think they should bring out the other 2 separately on this date as well.

Here's a dumb question... but what the hell is a "digibook" and why do people seem to hate them so much?

I figure I've probably seen one before and didn't know it, but I know when The Matrix came out I looked at it and didn't notice anything other than it not being in a regular blu case.

It's like a book. Hard cover front and back, pages in the middle. Only the back cover has the indentation for the disc. I kinda liked it, but it is different.

Ahhh, gotcha. Thanks.
I guess I wouldn't mind as long as the book has some sort of clasping device to keep it shut so it doesn't spill open every time you grab it from the shelf.... seems risky if the disc would be loose

It doesn't have a clasp, and that could be part of the reason why people don't like it. The disc is secure, however, like any other case. It locks in.

Personally I liked the theme for the Matrix 10th anniversary. I'm not sure I would want a shelf full of them, however.

Try this link. You'll see a shot of how the book looks towards the top right of the picture.

when you put it on your Blu rack next to your other blus(nondigibook) it will stick out further, and come up higher, its too big and sloppy for my likings, i hate how it looks on the shelf, plus i really dont care for the "booK'...i will never purchase a digibook, sucks that The Green Mile Came out as one, i have to wait for the release of the standard case

The Matrix Digi was my favorite until the 300 one came out.

Count me in on this as well. It'd be nice.

Although I have The Matrix digibook, I have noticed the box set has come down considerably in price recently. I've been tempted to just get it, but the release of The Matrix as a regular-case release brightens hope in the Reloaded and Revolutions also getting separate releases.

For the record, I like the digibook release of The Matrix.

Ya, I don't like them because they are a different size than the other cases and they don't match on the shelf.

I wish they would release the other 2 movies separately as well. Like they are doing with the Bourne trilogy.

It's all a matter of preference, like anything else. I thought it was well done on the Matrix - unique looking for the 10 year anniversary. I haven't seen any others, but I don't think I'd want an entire collection of digi-books on my shelf.

Very excited about this. Matrix and Blu-Ray just seem to go together, but I haven't bought it yet because I fall into the dislike side of the digibook debate. I'll definitely buy The Matrix in a regular blu-ray case.

You'll like the blu version of the movie. Warner did a really good job on the transfer IMHO.

Those "glue" dots are quite common in the printing industry (even though they're really latex, not glue). Other industries use it as well - most credit cards are mailed by attaching the card to a letter with those latex dots.

The new Star Trek also used that flap of paper on the back, FYI. As have others. It's not limited just to the digibook.

the reason why they make it peelable is so you don't have to cut the proof of purchase off the back to send it in.
