Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released a new trailer for the Wachowski Siblings‘ Jupiter Ascending, and it finally goes in depth with the plot. The basic story centers on Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs 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 plays an ex-military half-werewolf half-albino hunter tasked with tracking her down. However, this trailer goes far beyond that description and introduces us to the space politics involved as well as plenty of new footage showcasing finished visual effects that are mighty impressive not so much for how they look (which is perfectly fine) but for how they function. This looks like a big, crazy, space opera with the hint of unique madness only the Wachowskis can provide. I’m still not sure if the movie will be any good, but I can’t wait to see it.
Hit the jump to check out the new Jupiter Ascending trailer. 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 6, 2015.
