The Wachowski Siblings‘ newest movie, Jupiter Ascending, has Channing Tatum playing a half-albino werewolf who flies around on rocket boots. I should not have to tell you anything more to sell you on this movie. But if you need more convincing, let me point out that few filmmakers are creating movies as wildly original as this directing duo, and while I still don’t know if their latest picture will be campy or crazy, I at least know it’s going to be unlike any other film this year (and yes, that includes the one with the Force waking up). I’m guessing this movie is going to be divisive, so it’s good to get a jump on being part of the conversation.

Here’s the official synopsis for Jupiter Ascending:
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
The film also stars Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae. Jupiter Ascending opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on February 6th.
