Warner Bros. has released an international trailer for the Wachowski Siblings' upcoming sci-fi adventure film, Jupiter Ascending. The story follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum plays an ex-military hunter tasked with tracking her down. The movie looking like it will be a lot of fun, and it's also exciting to see a non-adaptation as part of the summer blockbuster season. That probably means fewer people will see it because it hasn't been pre-sold to them in some other form, but personally, I'm just glad to be getting a new Wachowskis movie this year. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae. »

A new Japanese trailer for the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending has surfaced and can be watched below! Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 18, the sci-fi film stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D'Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith. In the film, Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along.her genetic signature »
When the first trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending was released last year, the reaction was mixed to say the least. Some loved the look of the latest movie from the duo behind The Matrix Trilogy, while others couldn’t quite get their heads around Channing Tatum’s ears!
If you’re one of those still on the fence about Jupiter Ascending, then this new international trailer may just help you to make your mind up one way or another. It features plenty of never before seen footage from the movie and it makes it abundantly clear that this is the Wachowskis going 100%, full-blown sci-fi.

Despite the rather unfair critical reaction to their 2012 sci-fi epic Cloud Atlas (co-directed by Tom Tykwer), the Wachowskis are back with more cosmic prophesying with a film that sounds like a mix of Willow and Elysium. Whatever the criticism, the innovation and sheer ambitions behind any cinematic effort of the Wachowskis is certainly worth a look. We’ll see how the more youthful skewed headlining of this cast will fare in their dystopic vision.

The Judge John Deed star remembers the 60s at the Royal Court, and being discovered by the great auteur
By 1969 I'd done a few roles for Sidney Bernstein's Granada Television, which was the place for new, dangerous drama, and a couple of plays at the Royal Court. I was in their first revival of Look Back in Anger. John Osborne came along to rehearsals a lot – he was shocked at how gritty and visceral we'd made the production. It was an incredibly exciting time – I felt part of a movement of dissent. I did the premiere of David Storey's The Contractor, with the great Lindsay Anderson, and then I did a play called Cancer, which was later renamed Moonchildren.
Cancer was based on the experiences of its writer, Michael Weller. It's about a group of students who rent a flat. It's a very funny and very realistic play, »

Sunday 12th January, 10.00Pm, BBC Four- UK Broadcast
Narrated by Peter Wyngarde
For over a hundred years, more than 80 actors have put a varying face to the world’s greatest consulting detective - Sherlock Holmes. And many of them incorporated details - such as the curved pipe and the immortal line ‘Elementary, my dear Watson’ - that never featured in Conan Doyle’s original stories.
In charting the evolution of Sherlock on screen, from early silent films to the latest film and television versions, BBC Four’s Timeshift shows how our notion of Sherlock today is as much a creation of these various screen portrayals as of the stories themselves.

Between the modern masterpiece that is The Matrix and the ambitious, sprawling Cloud Atlas (which ranked among my favorite films of 2012), the Wachowskis have more than earned their reputation as science-fiction royalty. So, I’m understandably excited for their next big-budget venture into the genre, this July’s Jupiter Ascending. Starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum, the film tells the tale of Jupiter Jones (Kunis), a young janitor whose genetic similarity to the all-mighty Queen of the Universe makes her the target of multiple interplanetary assassins.
Now, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have a new image from the sci-fi blockbuster, which finds Tatum’s character, a half-albino ex-military hunter with wolf and human DNA who winds up protecting Jupiter after originally being sent to kill her, in the midst of an intense firefight. Between the high-tech gun, strange shield and long coat, Tatum looks like a bizarre toss-up between Han Solo and Hellboy. »

We caught the first trailer for The Matrix writer/director siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending a few weeks ago, but now the first official image from the film has been released online. This photo perfectly encompasses the gleeful oddness of the pic, as we see star Channing Tatum in his werewolf hybrid makeup flying through the air while brandishing a force shield of some sort, sparks a-blazing. The story follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Tatum’s character is an ex-military hunter tasked with tracking her down. If all of that somehow wasn’t exciting enough, Speed Racer composer Michael Giacchino is penning the score. Hit the jump to take a look at the image in full. »

Last year I made a list of my 50 most anticipated movies of 2013, but this year I struggled putting together a list of 40. The kind of movies I used to anticipate don't get me brimming with excitement as much as they saturate the market and we can fully expect to see one nearly every weekend and this year it starts early with Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit on January 17. So no need to anticipate them, they'll be here soon enough, but I've already discussed all this, no need to trod the same path over again. My list would have also been easier to make had I not already seen six films you may want to add to your list of most anticipated: Dom Hemingway (April 4) Read My Review Enemy (March 14) Read My Review Ernest & Celestine (March 14) Only Lovers Left Alive (April 11) Read My Review Under the Skin (April 4) Read My Review Venus »
