The Wachowski’s haven’t exactly had an easy time lately. Their last few films haven’t made as much money as they’d like, and definitely haven’t reviewed nearly as well as their first few entries. Well, now that the trailer for Jupiter Ascending has arrived to lukewarm responses from people they’re attempting to stir up some more excitement with the first official image of Channing Tatum’s Werewolf-dude-guy.
I’d be lying if I said I’m not pulling for the Wachowskis. I really want them to do well. I loved Speed Racer, even though most didn’t. But this new film looks like too much. Even over Cloud Atlas, this film looks like too much. It’s just a bizarre cocktail of unnecessary sci-fi elements. None of it looks interesting or unique in any way. But who knows. Maybe it’ll be good. Fingers crossed.
