Several months ago I proclaimed that I would, from that moment forth, see all theatrical releases from a select group of directors. The Wachowskis were included in that group. So when I heard they had a new movie due in 2014, Jupiter Ascending, I naturally became very excited and started lining up babysitters.
And then the trailer came out.
I’m not getting a strong sense that Jupiter Ascending is going to impress me the way The Matrix, Cloud Atlas, or Speed Racer did. Now, it’s just a trailer – I could be totally wrong. I’m going to stick to my original proclamation and see it in the theaters, because every time I skip out on their movies and wait for the DVD, I regret it. Sure, I’m not a huge Channing Tatum guy. Mila Kunis doesn’t really “wow” in the tease, and I’m not exactly sure who Sean Bean is. But, that’s okay. This is a test of loyalty. I know it’s going to be amazing, because it’s the Wachowskis. Right? Right? Right.
If you haven’t seen the trailer, give it a view at the link, then share your thoughts if you so desire:
