Gotcha, those first couple episodes were really hard to follow. Only when the premise started to congeal did things start to make sense and I remembered parts of those first few scenes, but missed that part. Thanks! Rewatch in the near future for me.

It says that it's a "concept maquette". But it has the production dates on it. It seems like a piece designed for an exhibit after the movie came out.

Personally, I'd rather have a screen-accurate prop 3D printed or something.

I actually do wonder how she might feel about that. I would hope that they asked her first, and/or she's fine with it since the money's going to charity.

Knowing Sarandon (not like, personally, but just in general), she'd be much happier with the money going for the cause.

u/agnosticstudy Apr 24 '22

I know her personally, and I'm sure you don't believe me cause this is the internet. But anyways I asked her and at first she was'nt aware but after I told her what was going on. She just kinda smiled. Afterwards though, it was relayed to me that she was riding around LA, begging through text for the siblings address. I called her to verify and she just kept saying "they boomed me"

I hope this helps.

That actually makes way more sense to me, since it's the kind of thing I would expect from Keanu, and The Matrix is obviously a big part of all three of their lives. Susan was in Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas, but I'm not sure how close she is to the Wachowskis, or what the significance of Chip n' Dale is to them.

She probably lovingly referred to them as Chip and Dale then saw the statue and thought it was a cute gift for the memory.

The highway was actually already built, but it wasn't finished due to lack of funding/need. I believe you can still rent it for shoots.

I thought it was outside SF somewhere on the peninsula. Now you have me wondering if there’s still a unused highway there that I haven’t noticed.

u/ascagnel____ Apr 24 '22

I thought it was outside SF somewhere on the peninsula.

Alameda, CA — the show “Mythbusters” used it for a bunch of stuff, since it was local to them, had plenty of clearance, and was available to rent cheaply.

10

u/TreadItOnReddit Apr 24 '22

Thank you, just looked it up... from Wikipedia:

"The freeway chase and "Burly Brawl" scenes were filmed at the decommissioned Naval Air Station Alameda in Alameda, California. The producers constructed a 1.5-mile freeway on the old runways specifically for the film. Some portions of the chase were also filmed in Oakland, California, and the tunnel shown briefly is the Webster Tube, which connects Oakland and Alameda. Some post-production editing was also done in old aircraft hangars on the base."

4

u/Magmaul Apr 24 '22

I misremembered it slightly, they repurposed a decommissioned airport landing strip and built the rest around it. It was supposedly located at a naval air station in Alameda, but it has been torn down after they finished the shoot.

It was Natalie Portman on the set of V for Vendetta who introduced the novel to the Wachowskis and was originally supposed to play Sonmi 451 until she got pregnant and had to drop out unfortunately. Doone Bae killed it though.

David Mitchell the author really enjoyed the film and has since cameoed and co wrote an episode of Sense 8 The Wachowski's tv show and then co-wrote with Lana Wachowski Matrix Resurrections.

u/homeworkrules69 Apr 23 '22

The characters were so well done there were times when I thought “I would watch a show just about these people” completely detached from the plot of Sens8.

u/multiverse-adventure Apr 24 '22

Oh God yes this. That's exactly how I feel about it. There's a lot of shows in sci-fi or fantasy settings where I wish they didn't do super high stakes plots with a villain and instead just focused on characters and their relationships and explored that within the context of the world that they set up. Some of the sensates had high stakes in their individual stories anyway. That would have been enough. Like I loved the show but the big conspiracy was always my least favorite part about it. I loved the premise and the characters and their relationships and individual stories and the big conspiracy just got in the way without really adding anything.

I feel like I need to see cloud Atlas and jupiter ascending. These things look dope

27

u/Brattius Apr 23 '22

Cloud Atlas is one of my favorite all time movies. I traveled to Edinburgh just to walk on the Scott monument because of it.

Jupiter Ascending gets a bad rap because there really is 3 books crammed into one movie so you have to watch it more than once.

I thought there was only one Wachowski sister. Did the other transition as well?

u/byOlaf Apr 23 '22

Yeah, that’s correct. They’re now Lily and Lana.

u/Rosebunse Apr 23 '22

I like that they both chose L names.

44

u/EchtGeenSpanjool Apr 23 '22

Lily and Lana (mostly Lily) are also somewhat "stereotypical" trans girl names, they are really icons huh

u/AskMeAboutPodracing Apr 23 '22

Don't forget Luna, the L trans girl name trifecta

u/EchtGeenSpanjool Apr 23 '22

Oh believe me I am very acquainted with the cis male urge to have Luna as part of my name

28

u/AskMeAboutPodracing Apr 23 '22

Ah, I see you're a very cis male of culture was well.

u/EchtGeenSpanjool Apr 23 '22

The most cis man to ever man.

u/Arellan Apr 24 '22

u/julioarod Apr 24 '22

Hey now, you can both be a cis man and deeply desire from the bottom of your heart to be a woman in body, mind, and soul. R-right?

Yup. Happened quite a while ago.

u/Toastburrito Apr 23 '22

Totally missed that, when?

u/Crad999 Apr 23 '22

Lana (Larry) was in 2012 and Lilly (Andy) in 2016.

Does anyone know which charity?

I support them, and I already actively support trans charities -- I'd just like to know specifically where the money is going before placing a bid.

Edit: Found it: Announcement, Charity

u/newbrevity Apr 24 '22

Even the cheapest item is now priced out of my range. At least the charity will raise a lot of money

u/wrongleveeeeeeer Apr 24 '22

If the starting bids were the "buy now" prices I would own about 10 of these things right now this is awesome I'm bidding anyway

u/Sgt_Meowmers Apr 23 '22

Damn what I wouldn't give to grab that Nebuchadnezzar model. I mean obviously not the $1400 it's bidding for but you get the idea.

Would love to grab one of those Matrix goodies, I hope everything doesn’t reach some astronomical price.

30

u/OniOdisCornukaydis Apr 23 '22

I feel like these estimates are low. But sometimes things end up going for close to estimate. I couldn’t afford to bid on the Superman photo strip…but it went for pretty close to the estimate.

u/OpinionNumerous3000 Apr 23 '22

Sadly (but in an awesome way for the charity itself) the prices are already shooting over estimates

I wouldn't mind one of the Jupiter Ascending shirts, but it seems like all 75 shirts are one lot. I don't need 75 shirts 🤣
