I really like the Wachowskis, which I realize is not a super popular position given the amount of whining that still happens whenever the Matrix sequels come up, but hell: The Wachowskis are crazy ambitious, at this point pretty much all they do is take risks, and they push genre into all sorts of weird directions, and even if movies like Cloud Atlas and Speed Racer aren't 100 percent creatively successful (or even like two percent financially successful), I'm a lot more excited to see filmmakers earnestly trying new shit instead of doing the same old shit over and over. Which leads us to Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis' upcoming sci-fi flick with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum! Who is our beloved Chatum playing, you ask?
“I’m a splice, splices are essentially built in a test tube. I’m a hybrid wolf and human. And half albino, so I’m a little defective.” (Via.)
Those are the best three sentences I have read or will read all day. Good afternoon.
