In these candid behind the scenes videos of the filming of the Wachowski’s latest film “Jupiter Ascending” we get to take a look at star Channing Tatum do some stunt work on what I’m assuming is the streets of Chicago. This is some very high quality video and we actually get to see Lana Wachowski working on set which is a rarity for the Director. It is great to see just how much control she has over every aspect of the filming process even down to miming movements for Channing to perform.
About “Jupiter Ascending” Channing Tatum has been quoted as saying “[w]e are breaking ground on—I mean it’s a tough shoot. We’re doing stuff that’s never been done, inside the camera, in the CG world, and the physical stuff. There’s very little, if not no, digital stuntmen in the movie. All the stuff is really real and it’s been hard figuring it out because they don’t like doing anything that’s been done before. So we’re definitely doing some new stuff, so hopefully everybody likes it. And it’s fun, it’s got some cheek to it. It’s a cheeky movie a little bit.”
I’m starting to get a bit of a Blade Runner vibe from everything we’ve seen so far, which given that film’s influence on the entirety of The Matrix Trilogy isn’t too surprising but is very encouraging.
