'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.
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.
The Wachowskis' upcoming sci-fi epic, 'Jupiter Ascending,' looks and sounds like something taken straight from Patton Oswalt's geeked-out filibuster on 'Parks and Recreation,' and we're into it! A new photo from the film has emerged, featuring Channing Tatum in his new action-packed role as a half-wolf, half-albino warrior, Caine.
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?
'Jupiter Ascending,' the Wachowski's follow-up to 'Cloud Atlas,' has begun filming with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum in the lead roles. While we've been keeping track of the project through casting reports, we still had no official word on what it was actually about. Now Warner Bros. has released its first plot synopsis for us, along with the confirmed casting roster.
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?
