The Matrix: Revolutions coming out sooner than we think?

Saw this article floating around.

http://www.nydailynews.com/front/sto...1p-70980c.html

"Then there's the release dates. "Reloaded" comes out May 15. The studio wants No. 3, "The Matrix Revolutions" to hit theaters in November or December. The Wachowskis want it released in July, we hear."

Hope this is true. We shall see.

This is utter bull. We are working in a small way on the Matrix sequels at my work here, and I've haven't seen a single frame of Revolutions footage. I've seen plenty for Reloaded, but not a peep about Revolutions. It seems like there is no way that they could release these two in theaters so close to each other anyway, given the amount of work that is behind them.

No way, that would kill the sells of Reloaded tickets. They'll likely sell reasonably well most of the summer.

I agree.

Plus, Revolutions would meet much more opposition in the summer. If it's released in November, what's to stop it from cleaning up the box office for a good month? Besides, of course, Reloaded being a huge dud. Which I do not foresee.

I'll be expecting it in November.

There's no way Matrix Revolutions will come out this summer. It'd be...a bad idea. November is the month, as this is hte next big movie season of the year and would give enough time for Reloaded to be released on DVD right before it comes out. Not sure if that's the plan but it would make sense.

Nope. Studio will have their say because frankly, it's a moron's move to put them so close together and have them eat at each others sales.

It did get pushed up 2 days from November 7th to November 5th according to Video Store Magazine that I got yesterday.

Good magazine (yesterday's came with a free CDROM with all kinds of stuff for the Two Towers August DVD release).

on November 5th, "The Matrix Revolutions: The IMAX Experience" will be released simultaneously on giant IMAX screens in the IMAX 15/70 format and in conventional theatres in the standard 35mm format.

Exactly - it will never happen.

Via the IMAX thing I am guessing Revolutions will come in under 2 hours in length, as that is what LucasFilm had to cut Episode 2 to in order to be on one IMAX reel. There is a set limit on length from my understanding.

Well, I hope the images don't get cropped, too. Aren't IMAX films shot in a different aspect ratio?

yes. Imax is set for a different aspect ratio and Ep 2 had to be cropped for it.

According to this thread , the limit is now 150 minutes, which shouldn't be a problem for the Matrix sequals.

Back to the original question, I thought that the plan was to release Reloaded in May (obviously), the Reloaded DVD approximately three months later (August) and Revolutions three months after the DVD (November).

Why does IMAX have a minute limit anyway?
