Sean Bean dies.
Channing Tatum - space elf!
looks awesome, just my kind of movie it seems from the trailer.
I don't know why, but i got a Highlander 2 vibe, hope i am wrong !!
Honestly, it looks stupid as fuck... I'll probably watch it.
an understated ensemble that puts the "b" in subtle
Looks cool, will probably be terrible.
looks alright, nothing i will want to run out in the streets naked screaming, Eureka! about, but might be a decent secondary flick. the wachowskis still make beautiful looking films, they just dont always deliver in other aspects. pretty telling when the trailer still lists their credit as "from the creators of The Matrix"
This movie looks ok, a little arts-fartsy, but Mila is back in shape, and who doesn't want to Channing her Tatum?
i don't know what's going on.
im curious, how long can you milk a film credit to promote your next project? forever? yes the matrix was an iconic game changer. nobody can ever take that away from them, it just seems that after 15 years and half a dozen films since the matrix that they would have something else to brag about. the wachowskis didnt even get mentioned by name, they are just "the creators of the matrix" now. thats pretty fucking sad. and look i love their films. i got flamed hard for proclaiming that street racer was one of the best movies of the year. im probably the only one here who liked their ninja movie and cloud atlas. and i still love me some matrix reloaded, whenever its on i still watch it even though i have to channel surf through all the zion scenes. the wachowskis should be at james cameron, tarentino and eastwood level by now, but after 15 years they are still tying to earn a name for themselves. i dunno wtf happened. is it because the one brother cut his cock off and calls himself lana now?
This is probably one of those no middle ground kind of movies. It will either be awesome or a complete piece of shit.
I got excited because I thought I saw Justin Long in the trailer, but I checked IMDB and he isn't in this.
So the elf princess is named something spacey, but it's from our solar system? Why?
She's a Russian shit scrubber who hit the genetic lottery so space humans view her as The One goddess and Mrs Smithkeisha the current space princess bitch wants her dead cause somehow everyone important knows about her but not the space public so they send Channing Tatum as the male elf version of Trinity to... I don't even fucking know.
this movie would have been 100x better if vin diesel or the rock had played channing tatyum's role. I'm expecting another cloud atlas though, some cool looking shit with a few wtf moments that make it all a mess, and being a box office flop. oh well, the wachowski's are working on a scifi show with the creator of babylon 5 so at least we still got that
My first reaction to this trailer is simply... WTF? What the hell is going on and why should I care?
That trailer is a marketing disaster. Seriously, WTF is happening? I have no idea! Why should I go see this movie? I'm long past the point where flashy special effects alone will draw me into a theater to see a movie. Maybe 20 years ago you might have been able to do it but not any more. Every fucking movie now has damn good special effects anymore.
I can still taste the shit Cloud Atlas took in my mouth
I couldn't make it 4 minutes into Cloud Atlas.
Most people produce shit on a daily basis, just every once in a great while it looks like gold. Wachikowski's clearly got lucky as they are really good at producing shit yet they've made millions because of their one good looking one.
HEY I LIKED SPEED RACER!!!
love the matrix though it's a bit dated nowadays
I can't be the only one that thought it looks like another "Based on the best selling young adult book series by..." movie.
Channing Taintum can't act. Problem won't see. Also, is that Katy Perry@ 1:12?
There is enough "should be good / great" movies coming out in 2014 that this garbage can be skipped without worry. All this trailer did was make me confused and tired and annoyed that Tatum gets money for pretending he can act.
I also just recently watched World War Z. I was surprised. It wasn't the horrible movie I was expecting it to be.
Kind of a cross between The Walking Dead & Outbreak. Worth a rental.
I was able to endure Cloud Atlas in that I thought it was absurdly amusing, at times. My largest annoyances were the Pollyanna-ish tone, Hugo Weaving in distracting drag (again), and the future language. Really, I would have been much happier had there been a subtitle translation for the future language as I was not nearly interested in the movie enough to decipher portions of it.
and maybe the science nerd part of me is influensing too much my judgment but serious....fuck the design of those stupid spaceships. What the fuck are they suppose to be? insects in space ?
you want a real, efficent and inteligent design for a space ship? here it is
Yeah, I don't see how anyone could watch this trailer and be super enthused. It said nothing about the story and was just a cgi show. Might be good, might be bad, the trailer didn't show it either way.
Trailer here looked pretty good to me.
reminded me alot of Babylon A.D. though... which is not a good thing.
Borg ship is not the most ideal. Interior is not accessible. Freight, maintenance, etc. I guess teleportation is assumed?
The gravity question as well. Startrek answers that with "magic" gravity generators that pull you to the floor. but that is not very realistic.
Also questions of engines and propulsion in general and is it safe to have those near anything else?

The makeup was really distracting in Cloud Atlas, but otherwise it was a great fucking movie. I spent the last 30 minutes of the movie crying and I can't even tell you exactly why. If that's not the definition of art, I don't know what is.
PS: I can totally understand why some people wouldn't like the movie, but it was still a really good movie.

the korea future parts were great, man imagine what an amazing world without any violence or misogyny there would be if we all had asian sex bot slaves who also served us tasty fast food
the makeup shit was the stupidest thing in the world, it looked god awful and kept breaking you out of the movie. There were definitely some interesting moments in the movie, but it felt way too hard trying to do the whole "WE ARE ALL CONNECTED SEE SEE SEEEEEEeeee". I guess a lot like Matrix 3 in many ways, one philosophy 101 idea just got too much attention.
still this movie looks like its gonna suck, which is too bad I like all the people involved. maybe it'll be like oblivion though and be better than the trailer made it look, or is it another After Earth...
Worst fucken trailer. Channing tatum can't act. Movie is shit. Sean bean dies.
You guys really having trouble getting the idea of the film from the trailer? Sci fi groundhog day on a longer timeline until Tatum + Chick save humanity.
is there aliens in that movie.

Borg Ships are pretty efficent and logic in their design as a ship design both for exploration and/or combat. No centralized powersource, but at webnet of power generators that compensate and/or replace malfunctioning or destroyed ones. The same goes for armaments, propulsion and shield systems (so no single attack or accident can cripple any of the critical systems)
No obvious weak structure point and/or exposed critical section like the bridge (Borg and Battlestar Galactica are the only scifi ships i know that do the bridge thing right. So no destroying a Super-Star Destroyer with a kamikaze X-wing)
interior is pretty accessible too. They have multiple hangar doors for fighters/drones ships and one main port for the Borg Sphere vessel docked inside it (see Star Trek: First Contact)
I'm going to watch this just because I'm a sucker for a good Sean Bean death scene.
Why the fuck does Tatum keep getting roles? He was halfway decent playing a dumb fighter ( what a stretch ) and now he's the next big action star? I guess heavy eyeliner is supposed to make him interesting? And you put him in scenes opposite Sean fucking Bean? Full retard.
Protip: Taking a chance on a complete unknown is probably gonna be better than making a known guy who has zero acting skills the star of your movie. History has proven this.
almost every action scenes in Matrix 2 and 3 instead are badly done greenscreen stupidity with no taste or feeling. The Smith tyranid-rush fight is cool in concept (with him being a self replicating virus and all) but got retarded after 30 seconds of it. Same for the highway scene
The Zion fight is one of the worst example of "bend common sense for cheap coolness" i have ever seen in a movie. it's just stupid. No other word to describe it
and this is not even talking about the story and their own Matrix 1 to Matrix 2 retcon of who Neo is and what he can do

Let's never mention the final fight again...
international trailer -- special effects and space shit look awesome, actors and plot look retarded as fuck. oh wachowski's i also read they are currently writing 3 matrix prequels... dunno how to feel about that
Looks like they just confirmed they are writing a new matrix , the birth of the matrix.
Wachowskis are some of my favorite movie makers, but Jupiter still looks gay as fuck

Not even the exotic beauty of Mila Kunis can save a movie this dumb looking.
mila kunis rarely saves a movie, let alone makes it.
True, but she ain't hard to look at.
i have a solution to the prequel pandemic in hollywood: the theaters should have to pay YOU to go see them. problem solved.
"Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, a janitor who possesses"
I stopped right there.
What do you have against janitors
No woman that hot has ever pushed a mop and shit bucket before. Why even give her a job like that? Why not make it something boring and believable like office work or something?
If the porn isn't high res you can't get horny, but you can hate a guy at 1000 paces without a scope. That's human nature.
"Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, a Chipotle manager who possesses"
"Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, a Upper class whore who possesses"
"Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, a Lenscrafters model who possesses"
"Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, an author of Erotic e-books who possesses"
Why the hell would you want a woman, who is that hot but can only get a job mopping and plunging toilets, to rule the universe?
Since it reeks of drab teen-lit, I suspect she is a janitor because she has not yet realized her inner greatness. She will first deny it and then embrace it to save the day and become a marvelous little autocrat. How inspiring!
Jupiter Ass Ending.
This movie isn't going to suck; It already does. Many have stated how mind blending-ly retarded the trailer is, the only detail they left out was Tatum's elf ears. The moment I saw, "from the creator's of the matrix" I was instantly turned off. The first matrix movie was great, but that was mostly because of the source material, the choreography, the introduction of bullet time and the cinematography. The Watchowski's have shown there is a direct correlation between the level of input they have on a project and the amount that project sucks a giant swinging king kong dong. Like a huge genital pendulum of poor creative choices and shitty dialogue.
It's a shame they keep getting green lighted for this shit.
Actually... this movie could have been fucking amazing. If they had done it as a satire of the whole 'chosen one', dramatic, cliched, snooze fest these movies turn out to be. Have the characters just act as bewildered as your typical audience member at the bizzare shit that is constantly going down. Throw in some snarky comments. Play up the fact that everyone knows Sean Bean is going to die, except for Sean Bean of course. Design some aliens that look like they have their ugly bits on their foreheads. And have Milla's character just act annoyed and put out that she even has to be here, saving the universe, dealing with a dumb as rocks "hero" and being forced to dress up like a tree.
So yeah Juptier Ascending should have been a space comedy channeling the spirit of Douglas Adams and not this overly processed tragedy.
Add in everyone asking Tatum why the fuck is he even there and I'd watch. Sounds 100x better than what we're getting.
this new trailer seems to show off every single special effect/cgi in the movie, guess i don't really need to see it after the trailer. really poor casting too, no surprise I guess after cloud atlas
What issues do you have with the casting? Sean Bean as the wise old mentor? Eddie Redmayne as an evil princeling? Mila Kunis as the sex? Channing Tatum as the muscley action guy/gay sex?
Seems like it will be fun to watch. I don't understand all the hate.
it just reminds me a lot of cloud atlas, where the trailer looked really cool but then the movie was a whole lot of "uh...wtf..." and a lot of the casting (and the makeup/reuse) was not good. don't get me wrong, i really love the wachowski's and I am a big fan of them taking big risks, but their track record is not good in the last few years and this movie just seems to throw in a whole lot of scifi space opera tropes into a giant blender.
casting wise, again love mila kunis but as a space princess... meh. someone who is more ethereal and supermodel-y (tall, thin, alien-ish) would seem a better fit. sean bean is pretty cliche as the wise old man who dies. channing tat-yum's ears just are too distracting, I'm sick of the movie/tv version of aliens being humans with forehead ridges or pointy ears.
i do not like the fact that meg griffin will be in this movie or any movie.
‘Jupiter Ascending’ Delayed Until February, 2015
Citing the need to finish extensive special effects, Warner Bros. has delayed the Andy and Lana Wachowski movie “Jupiter Ascending” from July 18 to Feb. 6, 2015.
Domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman said that the Wachowskis needed more time to complete their work on more than 2,000 special effects shots in the film.
“With the July release date, they were just not going to make it on time,” he added. “A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time.”
“Jupiter Ascending” will open against Lionsgate’s “Mortdecai,” starring Johnny Depp, and Universal’s “Seventh Son,” starring Jeff Bridges. “Seventh Son,” produced and financed by Legendary Entertainment, had been delayed multiple times by Warner Bros. before its co-financing deal with Legendary lapsed last year.
I guess competing with Johnny Depp is better than being scrunched between apes, The Rock and Scarlett Johansson
So they moved it from the summer release season, where hollywood trots out stuff that the suits assume will be good enough to make money, to February, the time when hollywood dumps all of their shitty movies on the market? Somebody must have finally realized the Wachowski's are a poor bet to make a quality product.
Likewise at the 11th hour, Paramount pushed G.I. Joe: Retaliation from its 2012 summer berth to March 2013 with no apparent downside in terms of the movie's performance. The sequel took in $375.7 million worldwide, besting the first G.I. Joe ($302.5 million). In an even more famous move, Paramount pushed back the release of World War Z, which went on to become a global blockbuster.
February is where you put average movies that can do well as long as they don't have major competition.
Calling me a Cunt is a lot like calling Hitler a Nazi, it's not exactly received as the insult you were intending.
Star Citizen referral code - [STAR-C3G4-2XMJ]
Well CGI looks nice, but honestly the only compelling thing about that trailer is the part where it looked like Mila Kunis was about to get anal probed.
Anyway, this looks like the typical: (1) prophecy of The One who will save us, (2) big reveal, then (3) going through the motions to defeat The Big Evil with a lot of explosions. I wouldn't mind being wrong, but their track record with Matrix 2, Matrix 3, and Cloud Atlas doesn't bode well ...
Could suck, could be decent, who knows. The starting cast is kinda weak, though.
Meh. I collect decent Sci Fi movies. This looks good enough to buy on Vudu digital once it hit's $10-12 for the HDX version. Doesn't look that bad, but it takes a hell of a lot more than this to get me to a theatre. Like Edge of Tomorrow next week will be the first time I've been to one in about 4 years.
You're seeing Edge of Tomorrow, but didn't bother to see Captain America 2? That shit was fantastic.
i didn't see captain america 2 in theaters either, i really thought the first one sucked and captain america i always felt was a shitty superhero. what, his power is that he is a bit stronger than a normal guy and has a shield? Fuck, thats just slightly better than hawkeye
i did like the new x-men though
Well here is the deal. My father is in poor health and wants to go see a movie together. We was going to go see Pacific Rim together but I was working many hours a day and it passed by.
Then he suggested Godzilla and I saw some posts and reviews and suggested Edge of Tomorrow instead.
I think he liked the first CA and Avengers and Iron Mans ok enough, but it isn't really his thing. Thus Edge it is.
No Spork , I didn't. I did buy it on digital though for my UV account which has 74 titles in it atm, probably 50 Sci Fi. It may be the least favorite in there. Hell I watch Prometheus more.
I didn't like the first movie at all, nor do I really like the character. Moralistic douche bag.
However, the 2nd movie was awesome. More of a spy movie than a super hero one. Great scenes.
I love Lana Wachowski. She seems like such a wonderful human being.
Have you sucked her penis or only stroked it?
Jesus, it opens the same day as Seventh Son and the spongebob movie? 50 shades and Kingsmen the week after? Yeah, this is not going to perform well.
I would just wait for Kingsman, every review has been positive about that movie and its still at 100%
Yeah, that sounds about right from what the commercials are showing. Budget hasn't been publicly released so it might be the next John Carter.It's all very chaotic and entertaining, like a bizarre cult sci-fi TV show that somehow survived a threat of mid-season cancellation.
i believe production budget was $170m so yeah... huge bomb
How the hell do you still get given hundreds of millions of dollars when you produce bomb after bomb? What the fuck is it about Hollywood?
So is this a sequel to something?
Reviews are like just about every other Wachowski movie. Either people love it or they think it's the worst thing ever. Nothing new.
I tend to love all their movies, so I'll be seeing this as well.
For me, they can't go wrong. I loved all 3 Matrix films, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer, Ninja Assassin, and Cloud Atlas.
If they're pissing off half the critics, it seems to be a good sign.
Wait, Ninja Assassin was a Wachowski movie? Cause that movie was fucking terrible. Like so terrible that it went all the way back around into something I really enjoyed watching.
