Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis’ Next Would-be Matrix, Has a Trailer



It seems to be effectively crashing YouTube at any given moment – took me several browsers and sites to finally see the thing, and even then, I feel like I need to see it bigger and sharper. This a teaser that starts out looking like every semi-futuristic actioner ever, then about halfway through, goes “Fuck you, sanity – here’s a planet with multiple rings in different directions, here are some seahorse men, there are a million other worlds you didn’t know about, and you’ll be goddamn lucky if we even start explaining all this in a way you can figure out.”

In other words, I’m totally sold. But then I kinda liked Cloud Atlas, so who knows.

Summer movie trailers already. It’s on.
