I'm glad to hear the Wachowskis got another project off the ground. I really like their work.

They made Keanu's wooden acting style work in THE MATRIX, so they'll probably be able workshop Tatum into something that at least works in the context of this film. I don't find him terrible as an action lead, just kinda underwhelming so far.

Kunis is always welcome.

And does Jupiter have the same box office stigma that Mars does? Will this title be changed to JOHN ASCENDING at some point?

I wonder if the Wackokski's "Cloud Atlas" success or failure will have anything to do with this flick being made?

Eddie Redmayne jumping at 'Jupiter' - Thesp is in talks to join Channing Tatum in Warners sci-fier
Justin Kroll wrote:After a handful of pics set in the past, Eddie Redmayne is jumping ahead to the future as the "Les Miserables" thesp is in negotiations to co-star with Channing Tatum in the Warner Bros. sci-fi movie "Jupiter Ascending."

Deal not yet done, but if it closes Redmayne would also join Mila Kunis in the sci-fi pic that Andy and Lana Wachowski will write and direct. Story is set in a time where humans are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder and follows a woman who has been targeted for assassination by the queen of the universe.

What character Redmayne would be playing is unclear. The Wachowskis will also produce the project.

Production is set to start in the first quarter of 2013. Pic would mark the first major action tentpole for Redmayne, who's better known for theater, including his Tony Award-wining role in "Red" and starring in prestige pics like "The Other Boleyn Girl" and "My Week With Marilyn."

His latest, "Les Miserables," opens Dec. 25 and already received a handful of SAG and Golden Globe nominations including best ensemble. He is repped by CAA, United Agents and Parseghian/Planco.

The Wachowskis Promise Jupiter Ascending Will Be A Sci-Fi Space Opera Unlike Any You've Seen Before
Kristy Puchko wrote:Having recently wrapped the production that stars Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum, the Wachowski siblings have moved into postproduction on Jupiter Ascending. The American filmmakers stepped away from overseeing its edit and visual effects for a night to attend an Australians in Film awards dinner. The two are notoriously press shy, but they did drop some details about the their latest project. For one thing, Andy notes that Jupiter Ascending's production went much smoother than the multi-faceted Cloud Atlas, which notably had its cast playing multiple characters within the film. However, he confesses the visual effects for Jupiter Ascending are "way more complicated."

"We seem not to be very good at making small things," Lana said. "We keep saying 'Let's go make a small movie.' But then they always end up being enormously complex. We want to somehow always find something that is different or that no one has tried."

This drive has served their reputation well among fans, even when it doesn't necessarily pay off at the box office. For instance, Cloud Atlas has been estimated to cost upwards of $102 million to make, and earned only $130 million worldwide, making it a total flop at the box office. Its predecessor Speed Racer did even worse, making $93 million worldwide off a $120 million budget. Yet Lana seems to shrug off these losses, instead focusing on the appreciation they've received from those who do love these unusual features. "People come up to us and just break into tears talking about (Cloud Atlas)," Lana told reporters. "Even Speed Racer, we get people that come up and say it was their favorite movie of all time. We've been very lucky that way. We have great fans. ... And we keep trying to keep surprising them."

As for what surprises the Wachowski siblings have in store for Jupiter Ascending, Lana played it coy, saying:
"It has a lot of things from a lot of genres that we love. It's got a lot of original action, it's got a lot of romance.

Well I guess this is their "strike 3" moment....with the dissapointing BO for Cloud Atlas and the flop (BO) that was Speed Racer, if this one followed the same trend, why would a studio give them a mega budget anymore?

Now..... here's the trailer....


HOLY SHIT!!!!
Are these fuckers BACK?!?!? I have no idea what the hell this film is about, but this looks awesome! This is the type of film I want to see from these guys and the type of trailer that guarantees me buying a ticket and putting my butt in a seat!!

This looks way better than I expected. The trailer has nothing that really grabs me (other than the Wachowski brand name), but then again, it also doesn't have any of the stuff that made me skip seeing other big sci-fi projects like ELYSIUM and JOHN CARTER.

I'll catch it when it hits last run.

Also, Jupiter (Kunis) does a lot of falling in that trailer for a movie called JUPITER ASCENDING. The Wachowskis typically write pretty empowered roles for female characters, so I'm not worried that she'll spend the whole movie like Kirsten Dunst in the SPIDERMAN movies, but still, a lot of falling going on there.

Take it to the next step: its a no brainer that Bean WILL die. But HOW will he die?

a) Taking a bullet/space ray/knife so that Jupiter and/or Magic Mike can escape

b) Flying his spacecraft/hoverjet thingie into a bad guy's ship to save Jupiter and/or Magic Mike

c) After defeating an enemy he thinks is dead, turns to Magic Mike and smiles, then gets shot/stabbed/pants from behind by the not-really-dead enemy

d) The salmon mousse

i don't know, looks quite a jumble of ingredients, the W's are hit and miss with me, second two Matrix movies being BIG misses though I really dug Speed Racer, and this trailer has so much going on it is hard to tell how things will flow as a story in the movie. I like Kunis in other movies I have seen her in but pretty boy male stripper is a dud in everything as far as i am concerned, just another male model who keeps getting work thanks to...I don't know what

Channing Tatum was very good in last year's 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike. He was one of the few good things in White House Down. He's got more going on than Taylor Kitsch.

Both Tatum and Kunis are hit and miss for me, but at worst they're just neutrals, they never actually bug me in movies and sometimes they're pretty good.

Kunis was really good in BLACK SWAN, in fact, I'd say that's her best performance. She wasn't quite at home in the fantasy world of OZ THE GREAT & POWERFUL and obviously outmatched by the screen presence of Weisz and Williams.

I find Tatum seems to do better when he's connecting with a costar. I thought he had good chemistry with The Rock in GI JOE 2, I thought he connected well with his real life wife in STEP UP, and he was even good in his small role in HAYWIRE. I keep hearing that 21 JUMP STREET and SIDE EFFECTS are both good and that he does good work in them. Of the performances of his I've seen, the worst was probably that first GI JOE movie in which he had to share the screen with Damon Wayans. Stephen Sommers isn't an actor's director, he tends to overwhelm the human component of his films with CGI goofiness, so I won't really hold that one against Tatum. I'll definitely take him over that PACIFIC RIM guy or John Carter.

Kitsch is pretty much dead space on screen, too, but I don't see how that helps Tatum. i forgot about 21 Jump Street, he was ok in that but I think Jonah Hill had a lot to do with it

Even though I've liked Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in things, the prospect of the two of them carrying a movie seems like a lethal amount of blandness. But I do like the Wachowskis and this looks just weird enough to be interesting, so we'll see.

And really, the only way to guarantee that Sean Bean doesn't die is to make his character a ghost. Or like a hologram or something, I don't know.

If he's a ghost, doesn't that mean he died before the start of the film? That would probably be a record even for Bean.

They should have him play a little kid. They don't usually kill kids in movies. Just give him a bowl haircut and t-shirt with a dinosaur on it.

Yeah, I was wondering if that would be bending the rules. Which would be more Bean-like, to make him a ghost and kill him before the movie starts or make him a clone and kill him over and over? Maybe in that new show he's in they'll kill him every episode.

A smart move. Hitting the market the same time as several other sci-fi flicks (PLANET OF THE APES, LUCY, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) was going to kill whatever chance it did have.

But seriously, you gotta wonder how much more WB (and any other company) is going to give the Wachowski's moving forward. An analysis of the Box Office take is pretty astounding: they made so much fucking money with the Matrix trilogy, but have failed with their last two outings. I honestly didn't see Jupiter Ascending being that successful. This move to February is not a good thing, no matter what spin they want to put on it. IF this is their third bad showing in a row...

[...]

February 7, 2014 is actually something approaching prime release territory. Back in 2001, 'Hannibal' debuted with $58 million on that weekend, the third-biggest on record at the time. In the last several years, this pre-Valentine’s Day weekend has seen debuts like 'Identity Thief' ($34m), 'Dear John' ($30m), 'He’s Just Not That Into You' ($28m), and last year’s 'The LEGO Movie' ($69m). And yes, the Super Bowl will be on February 1st next year, so that won’t be an issue. The extra time of course gives extra time for marketing, with the key bonus being the ability to attach a third trailer to Chris Nolan’s 'Interstellar' this November and/or 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' in December.

Obviously a film as expensive as 'Jupiter Ascending' arguably needs a debut higher than $28 million, but it will also have the prime advantage of being a would-be Valentine’s Day option the next weekend for those not into bondage porn ('50 Shades of Grey') or sponge porn ('Spongebob Squarepants 2'). Back in 2003, 20th Century Fox successfully sold 'Daredevil' as a Valentine’s Day date option to the tune of $45m over its Fri-Mon debut. I’m not saying 'Jupiter Ascending' will open on par with 'The LEGO Movie', but if studios and theaters really want something approaching a year-round tent pole season, then they occasionally have to drop a mega-budget movie like 'Jupiter Ascending' into early February and see how it goes.

I am aware that I am being perhaps overly optimistic. [...] But as someone who defends all three 'Matrix' films, likes 'Cloud Atlas', and loved 'Speed Racer' well before it was cool to do so, the Wachowskis have earned my benefit of the doubt. They are filmmakers worth fighting for, because they make genuinely original and visually dynamic mass-market entertainments that truly push the cinematic envelope in glorious ways.

That's a joke, right? He's seriously suggesting that Jupiter Ascending is a good date movie for V-Day? Daredevil had hunky Ben Affleck in it, which may have contributed some to its initial success. It certainly wasn't because guys convinced their girlfriends/wives that a movie about a blind guy who fights with sticks was romantic.

Think about it.... you tell your unsuspecting girlfriend/wife that you want to take her to the new Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis movie on Valentine's Day. What's it called? Jupiter Ascending. Sounds kinda romantic. I can see a LOT of women being bamboozled that day!!
