Wachowski siblings may finally have an epic ‘Matrix’ successor

The Wachowski siblings want you to take another trip with them down the rabbit hole.

The brother and sister team, known for their work on the Matrix trilogy, have teamed up once again for another science fiction epic.

Jupiter Ascending, which stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean, looks like the type of film the pair has been trying to make since the Matrix trilogy came to an end ten years ago.

Mila Kunis plays a normal human being, the lowest of the low on the hierarchical scale in a dystopian future. The Queen of the Universe puts a hit out on Kunis’ character as she poses a threat to the order of the world she inhabits.

Discovered by Sean Bean and Channing Tatum, the two decide to help Kunis survive the attack from the Queen, and in doing so, attempt to create a world free of peril delivered at the hands of the Queen.

It seems like the first movie since the last Matrix installment, Matrix Revolutions, which caters strictly to the science fiction genre.

The last movie from the brother and sister team, Cloud Atlas, was ill received by critics, even though visually it was on the same level as The Matrix.

Do you think this will be the Wachowskis return to sci-fi fame, or will it be another bust?
