Jupiter Ascending
The Wachowskis are back and once again, the fate of the universe is at stake, there's lot of prosthetics and ambitious costumes, and a big sci-fi spectacle being readied to hit the big screen. But here's the thing, post-"The Matrix" the sibling pair haven't exactly been box office titans. "Speed Racer" and "Cloud Atlas" were both high stakes stumbles, and one wonders how much of a shot they'll be given if "Jupiter Ascending" also manages to disappoint.

This writer was not a fan of The Wachowskis new age, multi-threaded, sci-fi tale "Cloud Atlas." However, one person who did impress among the A-list roster of stars, was South Korean actress Bae Doona. Playing Sonmi-451 most prominently (and of course, a couple of other characters just like the rest of the cast) she was (at least in my eyes) one of the few things that worked in the movie, with the futuristic portion of the film perhaps more affecting than anything else. But no matter what, The Wachowskis certainly liked working with her and are going to again.

Of the many big-name films unspooling at TIFF in September, perhaps the crown jewel is the world premiere of The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's "Cloud Atlas." The star-studded, sprawling, ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell's novel will be unveiled before hitting theaters in October, but it looks Warner Bros. is still gauging audience reactions to this thing.

A pleasant surprise arrived today in the form of a lengthy trailer for "Cloud Atlas," the much-anticipated adaptation of David Mitchell's novel by The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. Anyone who's read the book -- a sprawling, genre-hopping, puzzle-box of a story -- will know it's a tough nut to crack, but the clip, now available in HD at Apple, suggests that the filmmakers have managed to handle the diversity of the visuals even if it's yet to be seen if the film works as a whole.

Well, damn. After a prolonged period of radio silence, this week has seen a flurry of activity regarding "Cloud Atlas," the adaptation of David Mitchell's acclaimed best-seller by Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Andy Wachowski. On Tuesday, it was announced that the film would make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, yesterday saw the first images start to leak out, and overnight, the first trailer for the film leaked online (courtesy of JoBlo). And, boy, what a trailer.

It seems the mysterious world of "Cloud Atlas" is slowly but surely revealing itself. Just before Christmas, the first official set photo from the movie was revealed and with everything from a hover bike to a grand piano populating the picture, it was a quick tease at what is easily one of the most ambitious movies of the new year. Well, a few more peeks at the movie have emerged, and again, they give us a look at a world that is shaping up to be one of the most unique we'll see on the big screen in the next twelve months.
