    Well... this probably isn't good.

    https://www.yahoo.com/movies/s/jupit...071509306.html

    The Sundance Film Festival isn’t a typical launchpad for studio blockbusters, but Warner Bros. surprised theater-goers on Tuesday night by unveiling the Wachowski sibling’s “Jupiter Ascending” at a “surprise screening.”

    The invitation-only event, which was not billed as a premiere, was the first time “Jupiter Ascending” was shown to the public...

    Despite the hype of a secret screening, clusters of seats inside the 300-person venue remained empty, and a handful of patrons walked out of the two-hour-plus space epic... The Wachowski’s flair was fully on display, with sequences reminiscent of “The Matrix” or “Star Wars.” But when the film ended, the usually gracious Sundance audience didn’t clap at the closing credits.

    “I hated it,” said one of the festival’s volunteers, who asked not to be identified for fear of irking Sundance. “It’s just ridiculous.”

    Her husband was more forgiving. “It’s a combination of a whole bunch of things wrapped into one,” he said.

    Neville Kiser, a screenwriter, thought the movie was hurt by the fact that it was debuting at a venue for highbrow films. “I actually liked it,” Kiser said. “But the Sundance context is weird. There were so many people in the audience scoffing and sneering. They are forgetting they are watching a movie targeted primarily to teenage boys. I’m sure those 15-year-old boys, and hopefully girls, will like it.”
    Okay, so it's obviously not something appealing to Sundance attendees. Critics weren't invited, and reviews are embargoed until Monday night.

    Maybe if expectations are realistic, it could still be a fun watch.

    I still need to see that. The property itself is kind of campy all on its own, so that's part of the expectation or should be.

    Mila Kunis doesn't look like a damsel in distress though.

    The trailer doesn't look too bad.



    But i think Eddie Redmayne seems the most interesting.

    Yeah, and so this happened:

    RT score: 36%

    But who cares? It looks like it might still be a lot of fun.
    It's just too bad their budget is likely to be cut after this.

    I'm going to watch it myself. Screw RT. Mila Kunis... eehh I've seen her without makeup... That other guy? Don't really know him or his work. Saw the trailer though, looks like great visuals. I was intrigued by that energy shield thingy he was wielding and blocking shots with. The storyline, seems intriguing. mostly the backstory.

    I got some strong secondhand embarrassment watching that trailer tbh. mila kunis should stick to comedy and channing tatum should stick to dancing.

    I liked Mila Kunis in "Black Swan" (I thought she played that part effectively), but otherwise I haven't really been that interested in her screen appearances. I felt like she made it big because of her dusky voice and how good she looks on film. *shrug*

    Kind of indifferent to Tatum, although I have not seen him in Foxcatcher yet.

    Big fan of Eddie Redmayne.



    I miss the good ol' days of casting, like the Matrix. Crap. The non-US actors were established stars in their native countries before then, but i thought they were awesome and brought a lot to this movie:

    - Gloria Foster
    - Monica Belluci
    - Helmut Bakaitis
    - Lambert Wilson

    And then of course they ended being breakout roles for Hugo Weaving (at least on the blockbuster scale) and Carrie Anne Moss. She had been in a few minor things previously, but she ended up being an unexpected treasure there (far more an actor than Kunis). She held her own with all the established actors in the movie.

    Funniest comment I've seen so far about this movie:

    It's like the sick love-child of Zardoz and Fifth Element.
    I had no clue what Zardoz was, so I looked it up. Dear god.

    In any case, I still plan to see this this weekn sometime, just for the thrills.
