In One Month: Jupiter Ascending (2015)
The year 2015 is going to bring audiences many sci-fi sequels, but I'm also looking forward to Jupiter Ascending, an original sci-fi epic from the Wachowskis which bows on February 6
I know there's much controversy surrounding the quality of The Matrix sequels, but I'm a fan of all the Wachowski films, including Speed Racer (2008). and Cloud Atlas (2012).
The trailers for Jupiter Ascending suggest an epic sci-fi/fantasy pastiche.
I suspect it's either going to be a bravura, full-throated re-invention of the form, spun from familiar tropes, or -- if things go badly -- a CGI-laden mess
Just one month till we find out which.
