13 Upcoming Netflix Original Shows To Be Excited About

28 July 2015 2:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios/Netflix

Netflix used to be the home of films of varying quality, ranging from classic to cult to just plain awful, and the place to catch-up on all the shows you’re supposed to have seen but never got around to.

While it is still that, and you can lose yourself for hours binging on Breaking Bad, the streaming service has over the past couple of years made a big push to produce more original content.

The likes of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are the two biggest success stories, earning critical acclaim and challenging network and cable shows when it comes to awards season. The Netflix model, dumping all episodes onto its website at once for immediate mass consumption, has totally changed the way people watch TV.

2015 has seen that trend continue, with a string of hit new shows including Sense8, from creators »

Jupiter Ascending Blu-ray review

22 June 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directors: Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski

Cast: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Certificate: 12

Special Features: Jupiter Jones: Destiny is within us / Jupiter Ascending: Genetically Spliced / The Wachowskis: Mind over Matter / Worlds within Worlds within Worlds / Bullet Time Evolved / From Earth to Jupiter 

Remember when the Wachowski’s made good films? Remember the movie defining Matrix film? Hopeful that Jupiter Ascending is a return to the glory days? Sadly it isn’t, the film having more in common with the Matrix sequels. In Jupiter Ascending the Wachowski’s seem to have tried to craft a strange hybrid of Dune and Star Wars, but failing miserably to emulate either. The story is heavily cliched and, although imaginative, fails to be engaging or interesting due to underdeveloped plot points and poorly constructed drama. There are too many different elements which fail to tie into a cohesive narrative. »

SENSE8 Interview: Daryl Hannah Reflects on Performing in the Wachowskis’ Latest Project

10 June 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From the minds of Lana and Andy Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski comes the 12-episode, mind-bending Netflix series Sense8, about eight people connected all around the world who, after experiencing a violent vision, are able to see, feel, hear and talk to each other, as if they are in the same place. While they are being hunted by an organization that is out to do them harm, these eight individuals from very different backgrounds must quickly adapt to this new ability and to each other, and figure out what all of this means for the future of humanity. At the press day for this thriller that explores identity, connectivity and humanity, actress Daryl Hannah (who plays an otherworldly figure named Angel) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what attracted her to this highly ambitious project, why she was drawn to the Wachowskis and their style of artistic expression, »

Watch Netflix's Risky, Entertaining 'Sense8' for Story of the Wachowskis' Career

8 June 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As "Cloud Atlas" (2012) steams toward its conclusion, it measures the world's full weight. Sonmi-451 (Doona Bae), a slave engineered to serve the consumerist wasteland of Neo Seoul, year 2144, completes her rebellion with a public message, an argument for individual liberty as collective obligation that will, in the tale's imagined future, become a kind of scripture. "Our lives are not our own," she says. "From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime, and every kindness, we birth our future." Adapted by Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer from David Mitchell's unadaptable novel, "Cloud Atlas" loses the delicate echoes of the source material in a sonic boom of Hollywood filmmaking. But while it's uglier and rougher than Mitchell's sextet of linked stories, the film is unaccountably powerful. Full of "tricksy gimmicks," as publisher Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) warns at the outset, "Cloud. »

‘Sense8’ Review: Wachowskis Sketch Fascinating Characters in New Netflix Series

The sibling talent behind the “Matrix” films Lana and Andy Wachowski travel the world in their new series “Sense8” on Netflix — and leave a trail of mystery and supernatural phenomenon in their wake. The Wachowskis have either latched onto society’s deepest desires or uncovered its worst nightmares in their dramatic science fiction-thriller that examines the ties that bind humanity and the remarkable flexibility of identity. A motley collection of strangers share a common trait: They’re able to pop in and out of each other’s heads. A transgender woman in San Francisco (Jamie Clayton), a Chicago police officer »

18 Things To Know About SENSE8

4 June 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Love it or hate it – and if the early reviews are any indication, people are going to have very strong reactions to it, one way or another – Sense8 is a lot to digest. The 12-episode, mind-bending Netflix series is about eight people connected all around the world who, after experiencing a violent vision, are able to see, feel, hear and talk to each other, as if they are in the same place. While they are being hunted by an organization that is out to do them harm, these eight individuals from very different backgrounds must quickly adapt to this new ability and to each other, and figure out what all of this means for the future of humanity.

SENSE8 Review: The Wachowskis Deliver An Exhausting, Self-Righteous Fiasco

4 June 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s a sequence in the second episode of Sense8, the latest unmitigated fiasco to be delivered by Lana and Andy Wachowski (here paired with Babylon 5 mainstay J. Michael Straczynski), which quickly summarizes the now seemingly terminal atonality of the Wachowskis’ post-Matrix oeuvre. A well-meaning cop, Will (Brian J. Smith), sits down in a cop bar with his retired-cop father (Joe Pantoliano), who proceeds to throw his full colostomy bag on the table and jokingly asks him to empty it for him. Will is prepared to storm out before his father remits, but not before commenting on his inability to take a joke. As written by the Wachowskis and Straczynski, Will is a righteous, humble, and, yes, humorless hero cop, and like the series that he at least partially leads, he’s meant to come off as serious as a heart attack. Indeed, Sense8 sports the timbre of a political manifesto that preaches hope, »

‘Sense8′ Review: Wachowskis Get Their Game Back With Netflix Series

They might be on the small screen now, but Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski are looking at the big picture with Sense8. With all 12 episodes of the Netflix series set to debut June 5 on the streaming service, Sense8, as my video review about says, is a thrilling drama. Yes, the philosophically wide-ranging and globally sprawling series about eight individuals who share the same consciousness takes a while to find its heart, though a Bollywood dance number and a great… »

Here’s What’s New to Netflix in June: Marvel, Scorsese, and More

23 May 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

School’s out for summer, and the monthly changeover at Netflix is about to ensure that you’ll have plenty of different content to watch next month. A number of films will become available to stream in June, including the magnificent Nightcrawler, Martin Scorsese’s somewhat underrated The Aviator, Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater, and one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final films, A Most Wanted Man. Additionally, last year’s critically hailed but way underseen Beyond the Lights will be available to stream, as will Transformers: Age of Extinction if you enjoy having your senses assaulted. On the TV side, Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Scandal Season 4 will become available, as will the third season of the Netflix Original Series Orange Is the New Black and the first season of Sense8, from creators Lana and Andy Wachowski. Check out the full list of new to Netflix titles below. »

First Trailer For The Wachowski’s Sense8 Arrives

7 May 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lana and Andy Wachowski are about to branch out into a new medium, and anticipation is high as audiences ponder whether their particular brand of storytelling might fare better on the streaming platform Netflix than in cinemas. Since the mixed reactions to 2012’s Cloud Atlas, and the undeniable disappointment of the recent Jupiter Ascending, the heady days of The Matrix brilliance seem increasingly to be a fading memory. For this reason, the arrival of the first trailer for Sense8 is a significant development.

Woven together with a seemingly omnipresent Naveen Andrews, we find eight characters suddenly and inexplicably linked through their own senses. Executive producer Grant Hill outlined the premise of the series to Games Radar.

“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 »

Take a look at the initial footage glimpse from the globetrotting series below. Co-created by Lana and Andy Wachowski and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski, the series tracks eight distant souls who inexplicably become psychologically connected. We’re introduced to Icelandic DJ Riley (Tuppence Middleton), Chicago cop Will (Brian J. Smith), Mumbai pharmacist Kala (Tena Desae), San Francisco blogger Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Nairobi bus driver Capheus (Aml Ameen), Berlin safe-cracker Wolfgang (Max Riemelt), Mexican actor Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre) and Seoul businesswoman Sun (Doona Bae), who suddenly become aware of each other, and learn that they can share knowledge and skills.And they’ll need to, because there are some very dangerous people hunting them down. Fortunately, they do have a little outside help to comprehend what is going on, »

Jupiter Ascending Blu-Ray Gets Detailed and Dated

6 April 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Wachowski's latest science fiction adventure, Jupiter Ascending, may not have lit up the box office, but there was still plenty of fun for movie-goers willing to give it a chance.  Today, Warner Bros. have announced details on the film's blu-ray release, including a date and special features, so you can check it out at home!

While I didn't "love" Jupiter Ascending as much as I wanted to, I didn't hate the film either.  It has a lot of great elements behind it, with impressive visuals and characters you want to know more about.  While I wish it had been paced differently, I don't exactly get all the hatred the movie gets either.  I thought it was still a lot of fun, and if you skipped out on it, I think it's worth watching when it hits blu-ray on June 2.  Check out the features coming on the disc when it »

Netflix has announced some big news about its slate of upcoming shows, as well as taking another big step in their outward expansion, having struck a deal to purchase True Detective director Cary Fukanaga’s new film.

In terms of its new show line-up, four big new series will get their debut through the summer: sci-fi show Between will air in May of this year, followed swiftly by the double-whammy of Sense8, the new show from The Matrix creators Lana and Andy Wachowski and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski, and the hugely-anticipated third season of Orange Is the New Black in June.

Then, on July 17th, the streaming service will unveil Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the prequel mini-series to the cult 2001 film of the same name, whose stellar cast includes Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman, »

Netflix Announces Release Dates For ‘Orange Is The New Black’, Two Others

2 March 2015 1:44 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

House of Cards just returned for its third season on Netflix, and according to new information from the streaming video on-demand service, four more series will soon join it. Netflix has announced release dates for Sense8, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and the third season of Orange is the New Black.

Sense8, a sci-fi series from Matrix directors Lana and Andy Wachowski, will finally debut on June 5th after two years in production. It will be closely followed by the third season of Oitnb, which will return a week later on June 12th. On July 17th, Wet Hot American Summer, which will reunite the all-star cast of the 2001 cult hit film of the same name, will have a fitting summertime debut on Netflix.

None of those series, though, will be the next one to debut on Netflix. That honor goes to Bloodline, which will arrive on March 20th. »
