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.
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.
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.
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the development of the Wachowski's forthcoming global Netflix drama 'Sense8,' but with shooting set to begin in recent weeks, the world-spanning cast has finally been revealed. The mysterious 'Sense8' will feature 'LOST' star Naveen Andrews, along with Daryl Hannah and 12 others.
We're eagerly awaiting the next round of Netflix originals to premiere, from the Valentine's day release of 'House of Cards' season 2, or the next run of 'Orange is the New Black,' but we've also kept our eye on the Wachowski siblings' mysterious new sci-fi series 'Sense8,' which has just revealed more details of its global setting and cast.
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the front of Netflix's 10-episode project 'Sense8' with the Wachowski siblings, but it seems our first official details have finally arrived, courtesy of 'Babylon 5' creator and 'Sense8' writer J. Michael Straczynski. Are you ready to find out what links 8 mysterious individuals across the globe in the latest Wachowski yarn?
Netflix has been having a banner year with the release of its highest-profile original dramas yet 'House of Cards' and 'Hemlock Grove,' soon to soar even higher with the release of 'Arrested Development' season 4, but 2014 might be its biggest year yet. The streaming service has officially ordered 10 episodes of the Wachowski siblings' forthcoming sci-fi drama 'Sense8' for 2014, teaming with sci-fi veteran J. Michael Straczynski, but will it be their biggest project to date?
Don't think it too terribly presumptive of us to say, but we should all be able to admit that movies are officially dead forever, and the TV has come to dominate the galaxy. Fresh off of 'Cloud Atlas,' The Wachowskis are the next filmmaking dynamos to make their first foray into television developing a mysterious new project with 'Babylon 5' creator J. Michael Straczynski. So just what is 'Sense8,' and when can we expect to see it on the small screen?'
