In Jupiter Ascending, the newest film directed by The Wachowskis, a woman finds out the ordinary life that bores her so is just an illusion and that she is actually a reincarnated queen. From that plot and the trailers this new sci-fi epic appeared to tell a story not too far removed from The Wachowski's beloved film The Matrix. Yet the film sat unreleased for some time, and then its release date was moved from Summer, 2014 to February, 2015--a sign that the studio lacked confidence in the film. But now Jupiter has ascended.
