It seems this year's Hollywood sci-fi blockbusters have found screenwriters just plain tossing out the book of baby names. From Cypher and Kitai Raige in "After Earth" to Raleigh Becket and Stacker Pentecost in "Pacific Rim," it seems a good, sci spectacle requires character names that are so unique, you'll still struggle to remember them. But maybe it's just the genre as a whole as "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is nothing but adventurous names (Plutarch Heavensbee!) while "Ender's Game" will get us closer to people like Mazer Rackham and Dink Meeker.

After flopping pretty hard last fall with the ambitious, new age-y, sci-fi, one-actor-multiple-roles experiment "Cloud Atlas," Warner Bros. are feeling a lot more confident about The Wachowskis next genre project. In fact, they're banking summer 2014 on it.

While Michael Giacchino is best known for working with frequent collaborator J.J. Abrams, and for his efforts on Pixar projects which resulted in his Oscar win for "Up," it looks like the composer to set to add another pair of directors to his roster of regulars.

As we all know, if Sean Bean is in a movie, the odds that his character will end up dying are a lot higher than most. But we like the guy, so we hope his appearance in this potential franchise starter won't be his last.

To whoever is repping Eddie Redmayne as he makes his way into Hollywood: nice work. The actor has been taking a variety of roles, from the gritty indie "Hick," to the biopic "My Week With Marilyn" to this month's Oscar contending "Les Miserables," all allowing him to flex a few different muscles. And now that he's paid his dues and proved himself, he's getting into the tentpole game.

You'd think The Wachowskis would have gotten their epic sci-fi trilogy kicks out of their system with "The Matrix" but evidently not -- the duo are gearing up "Jupiter Ascending," a planned kickstarter to a trilogy that is set in a universe where human beings are not the most evolved forms of intelligent life. With things reportedly due to get underway this fall, and on the back of Mila Kunis joining the flick, Channing Tatum has confirmed with MTV his own involvement in the ambitious project.

Just like Woody Allen or Terrence Malick, The Wachowskis don't like to share what their movies are about until they're good and ready to, but as these things generally tend to go, somebody somewhere usually gets their hands on some kind of material and shares it with somebody else and before you know it, we're writing a post.
