The Matrix 35mm Regrade?
#1
Quotes:
2.0 was a total botch job.
Insane contrast - so much detail missing.
There are many scenes that are still too yellow.
Some scenes just look so weird that I distrust the whole thing.


...
The person who did the scan had this to say about the print:
“I think many people will be surprised that their memory of the film doesn't match what is actually was in the cinema, it had a very blown-out, almost bleach bypass look in many scenes, with white burned out skies and a high contrast look.”


High contrast look - this don't mean that contrast must be pumped that much to insanity?

Maybe someone can fix it...
35mm V2 is released for Christmas 2015.
I think it would be sacrilege to leave it in this shape.
And of course to leave All scratches, dirt, and other damage in.

The "(Green tinted) Matrix 35mm Film Cell strips" are actually from an original 1999 print. The Matrix wasn't restruck as far as I know. Rereleases either used the same prints or DCPs. 
All the other pics you've posted are from trailers and weren't color timed. You can mostly tell they're trailers because they are open matte and not anamorphic. 
The remastered UHD Blu-ray is pretty close to the original print in term of colors.

People usually say "no green tint" because the first Blu-ray was a mess. It was way too green. It even affected the skin tones. As you can see from those strips, the film is supposed to be a bit greenish during some scenes but it was subtle. Nowhere as bad as what the first Blu-ray looked like.
You also get people who think that the first DVD master is how The Matrix looked on film (yellow hue). That's just nonsense.

Gotta be honest, sometimes, just for laughs, I watch that timestamped/watermarked version that has (as far as I can remember) no tint/color timing changes at all.

It's not literally in my hands, I just helped a buyer overseas to buy it from Italy. And I don't really have material to show. If anyone has the UHD version of the scene where Neo bends the spoon I try compare them but if I remember correctly, it turned out to be a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy, so I don't know how faithful the colors might be.
