For those wondering just what the Wachowskis would do next, following the box office, um, under-performer that was “Jupiter Ascending,” here’s your answer. Netflix has just released a first look at their first foray into episodic storytelling, an original series co-created with J. Michael Straczynski (“Babylon 5”) about eight strangers, scattered across the planet, who discover they’re connected by mysterious forces.
In the trailer, Will (Brian J. Smith) has a lot of questions for a mysterious figure (Naveen Andrews), while glimpses of co-stars Doona Bae, Tuppence Middleton, Tina Desai and Daryl Hannah hint at a much larger story than he realizes. (Also, some people get kicked and punched.)
What does it all mean? Does it actually make any sense? We’ll find out June 5 when “Sense8” premieres on Netflix. In the meantime, check out these new photos from the show below.
