    @gumperman Agreed. They did an amazing job with Cloud Atlas, and this sounds like Snow White in space, but The Wachowski Brothers (siblings) are Incredible with this kinds of films!

    haha, are the Wachowski's calling themselves the Wachowski Starship now? Otherwise, what does that even mean? Anyways, I will defiantly see this film since I loved Cloud Atlas, even though the plot sounds like Snow White in Space!

    After Cloud Atlas, I'm game to watch any film by the Wachowski's.

    Tatum, Kunis, and the guy who played the guy who failed to bang Marilyn Monroe? Oh, and is if the cast weren't enough, it's the Wachowskis.

    Pass.
