Watch: 100-Minute Interview with Andy & Lana Wachowski in 2013

January 15, 2015
With the release of Jupiter Ascending coming next month, we're probably going to hear a lot more from Andy & Lana Wachowski, and there will probably be a lot of questions about what they're going to do next. But in the meantime, let's flashback to a couple years ago for an extensive interview with the directing duo back in 2013 when they sat down for a 100-minute interview as part of the DePaul Visiting Artists Series. The interview spans their entire career, and while we haven't had a chance to watch the entire interview yet, you'll see pretty early on that it's a fascinating in-depth discussion about their filmmaking.
And you can watch the latest trailer for Andy & Lana Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending right here.
Jupiter Ascending is written and directed by filmmaker siblings Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski, the duo behind Bound, the Matrix trilogy, Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas just last year. Official synopsis: In a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, a young destitute human woman is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen's reign. The cast includes Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, James D'Arcy and Doona Bae. Warner Bros will open Jupiter Ascending in theaters everywhere starting February 6th next month.

Your wrong. Cloud Atlas was a beautiful film. Not perfect but considering how complex the book was, it was brilliant.

Cloud Atlas is a beautiful mess. I could see why a minority of viewers might like it but overall, it's just not as magnetic as the original Matrix.

I agree. I've posted on this site multiple times how they caught lighting in a bottle with The Matrix. It wasn't intended to be a blockbuster but word of mouth made it what it is. Not the stupid sequels although like Cloud Atlas, they LOOKED great. They have made 1 spectacular (and it was spectacular) film. Thats it.

enjoyed this interview very much because they are such nice people with a strong sense what they want! Onley one thing isn't mentioned. To make great movies you must have talent. 99% of all wanna be directors doesn't have any talent. Talent and luck is all what it takes...

Quite a good insight into the strange world of film making. I still rate Speedracer.
