Now, of course they were there and, sure there were fleeting moments when it felt like a Wachowski film, but for great swaths of the film, it felt like impostors were trying to create a Wachowski film. Perhaps I'm being overly critical, but it just felt like a film that was trying to hard to be taken as a serious film and to be frank, I left wanting more.
But, this isn't a review of Cloud Atlas, this is a teaser trailer for the Wachowskis' next film, Jupiter Ascending. I'll be honest, I came into the trailer completely tabula rasa, I had absolutely no idea what the film was about, other than it was supposed to be an epic Sci-Fi adventure classic.
So, with everything from The Adventures of Pluto Nash to Blade Runner (and everything in between) running in my head, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I sat down to watch this trailer. If anything, I was hopeful that I would see something that restore a bit of faith in the Wachowskis.
I must say that I was not disappointed. From this brief little look at this visual world, I think Warner Bros. has what Disney only dreamt they had with John Carter, a franchise worthy backstop to kickstart of series of tales about humans interacting with aliens. I certainly don't want to get ahead of myself, but it will be interesting to see what something like Jupiter Ascending will do in comparison to the next Star Wars film.
