The first set photos from The Wachowski SiblingsJupiter Ascending have landed online.  The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who has to scrub toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe.  Channing Tatum co-stars as a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down.  The costumes and makeup on some of the extras look like 17th century French royalty that had their clothes tailored in Southeast Asia.  I like it.  We can also see some extras who I assume will also be wearing masks/helmets over the non-blackened parts of their faces.  In other Jupiter Ascending news, the production has been shooting at London’s Natural History Museum, and a source tells The Sun, “A skate ramp has been built over the top of the huge dinosaur in the foyer for a climax chase scene.”  I think it’s just a ramp unless someone actually skates on it. If Channing Tatum ends up using a skateboard to jump over a dinosaur, this will be the best movie of the decade.

Hit the jump to check out the set photos.

Here’s the official synopsis for Jupiter Ascending:

Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things.  Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets 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.
