  • [Article 87]Anticipation is rising in view of February 6th theatrical release of JUPITER ASCENDING

    For any fan of the varied work of the Wachowskis another moment of intense anticipation and high hopes is approaching as their newest film, the SciFi Epic Jupiter Ascending will be hitting cinemas on 6 February. The road to this work apparently has been a thorny one which a much discussed postponing of theatrical release last year, when Jupiter Ascending was supposed to be released in June 2014. But the Wachowskis felt that SFX were not ripe and truly worked to a perfect finish and thus managed to force the studio to delay the release. I say it can only be for the better! I’d rather wait another seven month than seeing a debacle of a film with an unfinished, rough feel to it.

    The latest trailer raises expectation levels to the almost unbearable I’d say and after seeing it I will definitely be on the edge of my seat until seeing the last credit disappearing from the screen on opening night.

    As an avid SciFi lover and buff I can’t help but feeling like a child before Christmas, so many sparkly things at display and high hopes for a gift that will make a lasting impact, maybe even at a level like THE MATRIX, but that remains to be seen and judged by viewers after seeing the flick.

    So let’s be done quickly with the remaining 5 1/1 weeks …!

  • [Article 76]What is Sense8, the new Netflix Series by the Wachowskis all about?

    “The series follows eight characters around the world who, in the aftermath of a tragic death, find themselves linked to each other mentally and emotionally,” co-showrunner J. Michael Straczynski tells Deadline. “They can not only see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, they have access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must they figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, they must do so while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.”

    The series, due to hit Netflix next year, stars Daryl Hannah (“Kill Bill”), Naveen Andrews (“Lost”), Freema Agyeman (“Doctor Who”), Tuppence Middleton (“Jupiter Ascending”), Aml Ameen (“The Butler), Terrence Mann (“The Dresden Files”), Jamie Clayton (“Hung”), Miguel Silvestre (“I’m So Excited!”), Tena Desae (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”), Doona Bae (“Cloud Atlas,” “Jupiter Ascending”)

    , Max Riemelt (“The Depraved”), Erendira Ibarra (“Capadocia”) and Alfonso Herrera (“El Diez”).

    The Wachowskis wrote and directed the “Matrix” movies, “Speed Racer” and “Cloud Atlas.”

    Writer Straczynski’s resume is much longer, encompassing everything from the “He-Man,” “Real Ghostbusters,” “Captain Power,” “Jake and the Fatman,” “Murder She Wrote,” “Babylon Five” and “Crusade” TV series to big-screen projects like 2008’s “The Changeling” and 2009’s “Ninja Assassin” and 2012’s “Underworld: Awakening.” (He also received “story” credits on “Thor” and “World War Z.”)
