Two new trailers are burning up the ‘net in this latest Nerd Alert. One visually spectacular offering comes from The Wachowski’s…you know, the ‘Matrix’ creators? The other brings an old, scaly and angry reptile back with a vengeance.
‘Jupiter Ascending’ and ‘Godzilla’ have both released trailers this week. The directing talent behind both makes for some truly ‘Nerdtastic viewing.
And, a fun .gif honoring ‘The Avengers’ makes the cut in this Nerd Alert.
‘Godzilla’ or ‘Gojira’ has been a cinematic monster mainstay since the 1940’s. Initially a successful Japanese series of films metaphorically chronicling the horrors of nuclear war, the films have struggled to connect with American audiences.
Enter director Gareth Edwards, whose 2010 film ‘Monsters‘ brought an intelligence to the modern day monster movie to compliment the intense action moments.
From The Wachowski’s comes ‘Jupiter Acsending,’ a Sci-Fi action movie that mines the directing duo’s penchant for themes of personal destiny against immeasurably difficult odds.
‘Jupiter Ascending’ stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean. With films like ‘The Matrix’ and ‘Cloud Atlas‘ under their belts (sorry ‘Speed Racer’), the Wachowski’s have a seriously creative visual style that warrants the Nerd Alert status.
The Sci-Fi action adventure ‘Jupiter Ascending’ arrives in theaters on July 25, 2014.
Happy viewing, Flixnerds!
