Netflix's Sense8 Scores Second Season

10 August 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As you may know if you watched the first season, the birthday of the eight linked characters on Netflix’s drama Sens8 is a pivotal moment in the plot. So it seems appropriate that the streaming service took that date – August 8 – to announce that the show had been renewed for a second batch of episodes. Hmmm, what to wish for? #sense8 https://t.co/L5z1mcPovB— Sense8 (@sense8) August 8, 2015Originally created by Lana and Andy Wachowski and sci-fi stalwart J. Michael Straczynski, Sens8 chronicled eight connected characters, known as Sensates, from all over the world who had to figure out this mysterious link between their minds and what it meant for them and the future of humanity. And manage all that while also dealing with their own personal dramas and battling a nefarious force looking to do them harm.With Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, »

Sense8: Netflix orders season 2

10 August 2015 12:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

J. Michael Straczynski, Lana and Andy Wachowski’s Sense8 series will return to Netflix for a second season…

Good news for fans of Sense8, here – a second season is on the way. Netflix announced the news over the weekend, confirming another set of episodes for the ambitious sci-fi series created by Lana and Andy Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski.

It’s refreshing to see Netflix continuing to support more off-the-wall storytelling, especially considering that the likes of Hannibal, Utopia (both versions) and Constantine have all been shut down over at more traditional TV production houses in the last year or so.

If you’re unfamiliar, Sense8 is about eight individuals who share a violent vision before developing the power to interact with each other over great distances, all the while being chased down by a shady organisation. We have some staunch supporters of the show here at Den Of Geek »

'Sense8' Renewed for Season 2 on Netflix

8 August 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! Sense8 has been renewed for Season 2 on Netflix. The cast of this sci-fi thriller jumped on Twitter this morning to make the announcement with a special 'birthday' video. The show comes from J. Michael Straczynski, working alongside the 'Wachowski Starship', other wise known as The Matrix trilogy creators Andy Wachowski and his brother-turned-sister Lana Wachowski.

The fate of the series was looking quite uncertain. Some fans had abandoned the series early, not finishing all of the episodes. But those who stuck through to the end were rewarded with one of the greatest modern sci-fi shows ever attempted. And that buzz slowly but surely brought back viewers who'd left, or those who simply weren't interested in it in the first place. Sense8 is considered a success for the 'Wachowski Starship'. They have had a string of commercial bombs at the box office over the past few years, including 2008's Speed Racer, »

Netflix Renews The Wachowskis’ ‘Sense8′

8 August 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The cast of Sense8 took to Twitter this morning to announce that Netflix’s series from J. Michael Straczynski, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski has been renewed for a second season. Fate of the series had been uncertain. Last month at the TCA Summer Tour co-creator Straczynski told reporters, "We're still waiting word for the final determination, but the talks have been optimistic. It's Netflix's call." So Netflix assembled the cast for their characters’ shared birthday… »

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.

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. »

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.

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, »

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… »
