Default hahaha a quote from a warner exec taken from engadget

Quote:
We closed the call with the most pertinent question of all, "Where's the Matrix on Blu-ray?" to which the answer was, as soon as they work out the details of BD Java and PIP.

this is the sort of arse backwards stuff that has me scratchin my head at warner's decision.

It's not confirmed that it was as stated on some forums/community pages. These were just rumors. Of course Warner took money however. That is one certain thing.

What a shitty state of affairs! I'm glad we got Blade Runner and most of the Kubrick back catalog out of them already. There's nothing else I'm going to loose sleep over until the next Christopher Nolan film, and that's a long, long way ahead.

it was the money.

I wrote just about the same thing on one of the other posts...

Also, don't forget that in addition to the lack of the Matrix and Batman Begins, Warner also shortchanged the audio/extras on a lot of their BD releases (see Happy Feet, Superman Returns, Blood Diamond), so if you wanted to buy the "better" version, you were forced to get the HD DVD copy.

I'd expect Batman Begins to hit Blu-ray about the same time Dark Knight hits theaters.
