It'll begin in a few minutes, 8 pm on Sao Paulo. They really love the "8" thing.

I just left the world premiere of Sense8 at CCXP and I have only one thing to say: what a fuck episode! Episode made to seal!
Haha, I take it that's something good!

edit There's an embargo and they can't spoil the episode: https://twitter.com/s8bra/status/805205758052810753

However if they didn't actually sign this on paper, someone might eventually do it. In any case they call it incredible.

There probably was a video or sound or text message by Lana (because I don't think she was there in person) that said she grew up watching Christmas Specials and always wanted to make one.

To compensate for the delay, the streaming giant will premiere a special Christmas TV film on December 23, which was produced due to a special request from the creator Lana Wachowski. I watched this chapter today in a special exhibition that Netflix did during the CCXP and she says she grew up watching Christmas specials always wanted to make one.

I can not give details of the episode or comment it, but I can anticipate that all fans of Sense8 will be very happy!

First spoilers from the special. There's one right on the title:

Thanks for this!! I'd say the spoilers are pretty mild. It does reveal a big come-together event of the type that Sense8 has made us expect and comments on Bae's asskicking as Sun and Onwumere's portayal of Capheus being positively received by the fans. It doesn't spoil anything about the plot.

Looking forward to seeing this. If the article posted earlier is correct, I do find it a little surprising that they have
used the orgy thing again,
I guess it depends on context really, will have to wait till I see it to comment. But it does seem like they are somewhat re-using a stand out scene / mechanic from S1 again. I could be totally wrong though. They may just flip the whole thing on its head yet again. Here's hoping. In any case, can't wait to have our mini dose of S2 this month!

Can't say I find it surprising. For me it was always a shoe in. Even if it wasn't in the Special, it would definitely be in one the episodes of S2.

edit How people reacted during the Special: http://www.papelpop.com/2016/12/2a-t...-maio-de-2017/

Quote:
At least we'll have the first episode on the 23rd of that month, right? In fact, we saw everything yesterday (3), in the special exhibition of CCXP 2016. We can not count, but it is SENSATIONAL! There were people screaming, freaking out, crying and clapping in the auditorium.

We can not wait <3
edit This article reiterates the same highlights as the one edu-fk posted. http://www.sense8brasil.net/nova-org...on-ao-delirio/

eg

Quote:
One of the parties that most excited the fans present at the scene, was the scenes of Sun's fight, with each appearance of the character the crowd went into delirium.
Sun!!

On Saturday they screened the special for 150-200 people and on Sunday they screened just 1 (I think) scene from it for all. Description: http://retalhoclub.com.br/series/cen...a-a-descricao/

Quote:
Wolfgang and his friend are celebrating the New Year in the middle of the street, until a man appears asking for help for Wolfgang, who strangles all that situation and dodges the lord, who is shot and killed in front of him, from there, the Enemies who killed apparently for no reason begins to chase Wolfgang and his friend. The two run, and try to hit them with rojoes, and clearly they err. Wolfgang then tells his friend that he'll fool the guys while he runs away. The friend is somewhat resistant to the plan, but in the end accepts and flees. Wolfgang then sets out to fight and faces the men in black, he starts winning, but soon is mastered, until he "incarnates" Sun, master of the martial arts. She applies a beating on the men, and manages to defeat all of them in a great sequence of action and excellent choreographies. The scene ends with the sensates gathered in the street wishing a happy new year to all.
Not sure how the editing in the end makes sense, jumping from a fighting scene to wishing a happy new year, but perhaps it was shortened for the occasion of showing it in CCXP?

Descripton of the same scene as above: http://www.ligadoemserie.com.br/2016...el-da-netflix/

Quote:
In the pictures, we see Wolfgang and his brother being chased by a gang and cornered near a building on New Year's Eve. Without a way out and after using two party plans to try to escape, he ends up having to fight with the killers, and is timely aided by the characters Sun (Doona Bae) and Will (Brian J. Smith).

At the end of the scene, all sensates meet and Wolfgang says: "Happy New Year, dammit."
He talks a bit about the introductory video message by Lana before the Special (although he can't talk about the Special itself):

Quote:
What I can say is: Lana Wachowski made an introductory episode of the story telling that since she was a little girl she loved watching specials from movies or series at Christmas and she always wanted to be able to produce one. The scene shown on the panel yesterday is terminating the episode and will not be in the Christmas special that we will see the result of the recordings that took place in Sao Paulo in the middle of the year for the LGBT parade .

If I liked what I saw? Yes, I quite liked it! The series will return on May 5, 2017 with 10 episodes. The reason for the delay? You will find out in the interview I made yesterday with the cast at the fair.
Not sure what he means in the end, I'll try to find this interview. edit No interview that I can find so far, this article I posted here: http://jmsnews.com/forums/showpost.p...5&postcount=19 is also by him and in it he says "The delay was due to the extensive timeline of recordings on several continents (and with all the actors, due to the scenes in which the cluster joins), as well as to re-scenes due to the departure of the actor Aml Ameen.", which well, I mean, we could all guess anyway.

The New York Times has some info that wasn't in the press release, so it seems they have either watched the episode (the writing implies this I believe, but who knows), or there is a new press release perhaps sent? (Again, to me it sounds like they have watched it).

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/14/ar...o-netflix.html

(mild spoilers: )

Quote:
The stars are back in their own worlds, and in one another's minds:

Nomi (Jamie Clayton) hides in San Francisco;
Riley (Tuppence Middleton) drugs Will (Brian J. Smith) in Amsterdam;
life is upended for Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre) in Mexico;
Sun (Doona Bae) languishes in a South Korean prison;
Capheus (Toby Onwumere) tinkers with his bus in Nairobi;
and Kala (Tina Desai) can’t keep Wolfgang (Max Riemelt), in Berlin, out of her marital bed in Mumbai.
And the henchman Mr. Whispers (Terrence Mann) lurks.

Meanwhile, there are birthdays and holidays to celebrate with raves, orgies and unconditional support — a joyful excuse to keep fans sated until Season 2 in May.
While not a review, it definitely sounds positive since they are calling it "joyful" and in the beginning of the article, which I haven't pasted here, "a gift" (which, I mean, it is, because it is released around Christmas, but still!).

Trailer tomorrow!

https://www.facebook.com/Sense8TV/ph...7745272418430/
https://twitter.com/sense8/status/809412989908553728

And the social media profiles of Sense8 have changed their logo to this new 8 with the colorful background, after changing it to an 8 with a black background the day the date of S2 and Special were announced.

edit Ah, it's from the CCXP poster, which is now part of the twitter background: https://twitter.com/sense8

And message by Lana, which also shows many little scenes that weren't in the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tJ2tg3PTWY

edit Updated background on: https://www.netflix.com/sense8

edit Now that I watched both:

It's a good trailer, but I think they needed more than a second of an action scene to hook undecided or new viewers. Not much longer, just a few more seconds so that it seems more action packed.

edit http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en...-a7479306.html

Quote:
You can watch the full trailer for the special episode below but we're also happy to exclusively unveil co-creator Lana Wachowski's introduction above.
"Exclusively" while it's also on Netflix's youtube channel... What? Someone has to learn what the word "exclusive" means.

http://www.indiewire.com/2016/12/sen...ki-1201759333/

Quote:
The director, whom Netflix officially confirms directed every episode of Season 2, explains how her love of old-school Christmas specials ties into the show’s ongoing themes.
Looks like Lana might get the sole credit as director of the whole season, which is not technically true, but Season 1's credits weren't either, but I guess they can't credit multiple directors per episode because of whatever rule, so they come up with shortcuts, haha.

There is a new S2 transition pic up on Netflix in between episodes
