Following the colossally bad box office bomb “Jupiter Ascending,” the Wachowskis have an extra difficult road ahead to win back some cred. And so their next effort, the Netflix sci-fi series “Sense8,” is coming with some added expectation, and today we have the first taste with a new trailer.
“Lost” star Naveen Andrews gets the part of Expository Voiceover, as he introduces us to a world in which we have seven other selves that we can access, who have special skills we can use to kick ass and have orgies or something. I’m not sure, but executive producer Grant Hill explains it all.
“At its heart it’s a drama, it’s love stories, it’s contemporary, so it doesn’t have that futuristic element. It has this one basic conceit which is very much the core of the project, what these eight Sense8s are,” he told Games Radar. “Where this series starts, you identify these eight characters, very different lives, and at about the same time they all experience a really violent vision from out of nowhere. They individually feel very alone, not to mention freaked out. As it goes on they don’t have the violent visions anymore but things are slightly out of whack. The characters start to see flashes from somebody else’s lives in places they don’t know about.”
Not sure that’s any clearer, but nonetheless, I’m curious. Also featuring Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Tina Desai, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen and Max Riemelt. Also, Daryl Hannah, Terrence Mann, Freema Agyeman, Alfonso Herrera, Erendira Ibarra, Adam Shapiro, Ness Bautista and Joe Pantoliano, all twelve episodes land on Netflix on June 5th. Watch below.
