The Wachowskis

Briefly: Warner Bros (via Deadline) has revealed the release date for Jupiter Ascending, the upcoming sci-fi project from The Wachowskis, for July 2014. It's filling in the original spot left vacant when WB moved The Hobbit: There & Back Again from July to December, which is still when X-Men: Days of Future Past is also set, so they've put Jupiter Ascending the next week - July 25th, 2014. Bold move taking on X-Men a week later. The movie stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne and is set in another universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. I've got a good feeling Jupiter Ascending going to be hugely epic and awesome, and it looks like WB is thinking the same.

    You know, the Tranny one is kinda hot.
    • Aint surgery amazing. HE did look like a hideous chud like his bro. Now HE looks like an almost not ugly "girl".

        It just messes with my mind, that's all I'll say. Fits the part, that's what their movies (enjoyably) do too!
  • Big Boss
    Yeah, just like Cloud Atlas was...thieves.
  • Kyle Robinson
    Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas... Wachowskis are done.
    • You just named two of my favorite films of all time...
      • me
        man i bet if speed racer was released today and was in 3d, it would make a ton of money
        • Tester
          That doesn't necessarily mean it would be a good movie.. Kyle does have a good point
        • $126191
    • Lets be honest. They made the Matrix it was awesome. V was pretty good, everything else is pretty much ass.
      • Nahhh I disagree with both of you. And they're definitely not "done" if a $200M sci-fi movie is in production right now with a July 2014 release. We have yet to see any footage or have any idea what it's about, give it a chance. This could be their epic return to their Matrix roots.
  • Green Lantern
    Where the hell are our DC Universe Comic Book Films?! Marvel is leaving WB in the dust.
  • Cloud Atlas flopped because nobody wants to see a movie directed by a tranny and its fat brother.
  • Sean Bean is in it? SPOILER HE DIES!!!
  • I love that Hollywood seems to be returning to make original blockbusters. Meaning, huge budget blockbusters that are not adaptations, sequels, or reboots of a pre-existing property. We had Avatar in 2009, Inception in 2010, are getting Pacific Rim this year.... But for 2014, we have Jupiter Ascending on July 25th, Interstellar on November 7th, and Tomorrowland on December 19th. I'm very excited to see studios willing to fork out mega-budgets on NEW ideas.

      Where were you when Avatar was being compared to about half a dozen previous stories?
      • There are common threads in EVERY story. But Avatar is not a direct adaptation of anything that existed previously. It's not based on comics like the Batman films or something like that. Just like a movie such as Star Wars, it took a lot of common threads, familiar themes and archetypes and blended it into something fresh.
  • C Tates is in this...I'm out.
