    Watch: First Trailer For The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending' Starring Channing Tatum & Mila Kunis

    No matter where you stand on last year's "Cloud Atlas," it's undeniable that it had the stamp of Lana and Andy Wachowski. An amalgam of fantasy, sci-fi and Big Ideas, those have largely been the hallmarks of the directors and they are continuing in that tradition with "Jupiter Ascending," which is d...

    Garrett Hedlund Replaces Jason Clarke In William Monahan's 'Mojave'; Terry Gilliam Has Small Role In The New Wachowski Movie

    Even without being massively fond of many of the films produced from his screenplays (not least his pretty bad directorial debut "London Boulevard"), we're fond of William Monahan and his salty dialogue, best embodied in his Oscar-winning script for "The Departed," and we're always hopeful that he'l...

    Move Over Cypher Raige: 'Jupiter Ascending' Synopsis Reveals Lead Characters Jupiter Jones & Caine

    It seems this year's Hollywood sci-fi blockbusters have found screenwriters just plain tossing out the book of baby names. From Cypher and Kitai Raige in "After Earth" to Raleigh Becket and Stacker Pentecost in "Pacific Rim," it seems a good, sci spectacle requires character names that are so unique...

    The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending' Will Orbit Theaters Summer 2014, 'Grudge Match' Pushed To Dodgy January 2014 Date

    After flopping pretty hard last fall with the ambitious, new age-y, sci-fi, one-actor-multiple-roles experiment "Cloud Atlas," Warner Bros. are feeling a lot more confident about The Wachowskis next genre project. In fact, they're banking summer 2014 on it.

    Will He Survive? Sean Bean Joins The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending'

    As we all know, if Sean Bean is in a movie, the odds that his character will end up dying are a lot higher than most. But we like the guy, so we hope his appearance in this potential franchise starter won't be his last.
