Love ‘em or hate ‘em the Wachowskis Bros sure know how to keep a secret…until now! That’s right, the plot for their latest Movie creation has been revealed and it sounds frickin’ awesome! Check it out!
Let’s get right onto plot:
A universe in which “human beings are just the Cro-Magnons, or even the Australopithecines, of what beings can ultimately go on to become in the galaxy. … these higher forms of life are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons.”
The unlikely, reluctant heroine is a Russian immigrant (Mila Kunis) who is busily scrubbing toilets for a living. Unbeknownst to her, she actually possesses the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.
These evolved beings fall into various different groups, all of which share some human DNA but who have over centuries been bred with animal DNA to heighten their best characteristics—e.g., soldiers getting their fearlessness, strength, and a pack mentality from wolves; workers getting their industriousness and reputation for diligence from bees.
Pretty soon, a bounty hunter (Channing Tatum) of the evolved-being type is dispatched to dispose of Kunis’ genetically blessed cleaning lady, but, as you’d expect with a Matrix re-dux, they fall in love. And for having fallen for his target, the bounty hunter gets targeted for extermination.
To me it sounds like a number of story idea’s crammed together, ranging from Snow White to the Fifth Element. I’m not sure on how some of that story will work, but I am intrigued by the picture they’ve painted in which the film takes place. A lot of good can be done with that idea, but will the Wachowski’s’ make full use of it? Judging by their previous movies I’m still on the fence; sure I love the Matrix movies an’ all, but I just hope Jupiter Ascending doesn’t get bogged down with too many cliche’s within the primary storyline.
The movie has been penciled in for a 2014 release.
What do you thinK? Do you like the sound of this story or do you think it just plain stinks? Will you rservere judgement on the film until the Wachowskis’ bring out the finished product? Please let me know what you think in the comments section below – I’d love to hear your opinion!
