With the trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, the franchise's first new entry for almost 20 years, due today, fans are seriously excited about taking the red pill and entering the Matrix once again. But for some, the announcement has reminded them of one of the worst design crimes in movie history.

Released in 2003, The Matrix Revolutions wasn't exactly the most critically acclaimed Matrix film. But even worse than the confusing and convoluted plot is the confusing and convoluted DVD cover. Because why pick one cover when you can pick four? Like all the best design fails, this one hurts the eyes as much today as it did when it first emerged.
