Netflix has a major year ahead of it, even after this past weekend’s debut of House of Cards Season 3, and at last we know its summer plans. Not only will Orange is the New Black Season 3 premiere in June, but so too has Netflix set an official premiere date for the Wachowski’s Sense8, and upcoming prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.

A Four-Hour Cut of ‘Cloud Atlas’ Exists and Is Apparently Incredible

I was not a huge fan of the Wachowskis’ ‘Jupiter Ascending.’ But as I said in my review, if there was a longer version of that movie, I would totally watch it. ‘Jupiter’ is an absolute mess, but a lot of it feels messy because it’s so rushed, cramming an entire universe of mythology and dog-men who look like Channing Tatum into a little over two hours. I couldn’t say for certain why the movie is that length, but if I had to guess, I’d imagine that studio executives who invested $175 million in this sci-fi boondoggle didn’t want a three-hour epic, and kindly requested (or sternly demanded) a shorter, zippier movie. The result moves quickly at the expense of any sense of coherence.

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Concept Art Hints at the Stories the Wachowskis Didn’t Tell

‘Jupiter Ascending’ may be something of a commercial and critical failure, but even with its many (many) flaws, there’s one thing we can all appreciate about it: the robust, incredibly inventive and immersive production designs. It’s just something we’ve come to expect from Lana and Larry Wachowski, and it’s one element of their films that will reliably never disappoint. New concept art from the film has been released, showing off even more details from the world of ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ including hints at an expanded story for Channing Tatum’s character.

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Review: The Wachowskis Descend Into Sci-Fi Silliness

Episode 415 of ‘Seinfeld’ was called “The Movie,” and it ended with Jerry delivering a monologue about the guy in every group of friends who can’t follow the plots of films and invariably spends them whispering confused questions to their seatmates (“Why did they kill that guy? I thought he was with them? Wasn't he with them? Why would they kill him if he was with them? Oh, he wasn't with them. It's a good thing they killed him!”) ‘Jupiter Ascending’ turned me into that guy. If you can explain the plot of this baffling movie in all of its intricacies, you are either a genius or one of the Wachowskis who wrote and directed it. It’s hard to believe that a movie that contains this much exposition could also be this confusing, but it does and it is. Something went horribly wrong here.

In about four hours, I’m seeing ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest film from Andy and Lana Wachowski. I’m beyond excited. I see early responses like “mad, majestic, magnificently overblown” or “legendarily awful” and I get pumped, because I know love it or hate it, I am about to see something. It certainly sounds like the Wachowskis have outdone themselves in the crazy department, which is particularly impressive since these are the Wachowskis we’re talking about, and the baseline for their movies is already pretty nutty.

'Jupiter Ascending,' which released two posters earlier today, has just unleashed its latest trailer, giving us a better look at the story. It seems The Wachowskis have merged the standard 'Star Wars'-esque hero's journey with the tale of a princess (Played by Mila Kunis) who finds out her destiny from Channing Tatum after a lifetime of menial labor. The big takeaway from this new spot is that the film looks epic.

Nobody makes movies quite like Andy and Lana Wachowski, so it's not surprising that everything we've seen from 'Jupiter Ascending' looks just plain bonkers and totally unique. Anyone who made the 'Matrix' trilogy and 'Speed Racer' and 'Cloud Atlas' has earned our complete and undying loyalty, mainly because they keep on doing things that we've never seen before. Two new 'Jupiter Ascending' posters arrived today, and they too showcase something completely special: Channing Tatum as a heavily armed, tattooed space elf.

The Wachowski's latest, 'Jupiter Ascending,' will hit theaters later this year and seems to herald back to the sibling pair's mega sci-fi blockbuster that skyrocketed them to fame, 'The Matrix.' While 'Jupiter' may not have enough juice to become as big of a box office hit, Warner Bros. may have a backup plan -- launching a new 'Matrix' trilogy.
Looks like it's time to take the red pill again and find out just how far this rabbit hole really goes ...

In 1999, Larry and Lana Wachowski unleashed their inventive feature 'The Matrix,' which followed computer programmer Neo (Keanu Reeves) as he learns that reality as we know it is simply a simulated one created by machines to keep humans under control. Neo discovers he is the "Chosen One" destined to lead a rebellion against the machines and free humans from their oppression. The film was wildly successful and spawned two sequels, an animated anthology, and a video game, and made the visionary Wachowskis a household name. Fifteen years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved contemporary sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
