Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released a new trailer for the Wachowski SiblingsJupiter 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 MiddletonJames D’ArcyTim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.  Jupiter Ascending opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on February 6, 2015.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures have released a fantastic new trailer for The Matrix Trilogy and Cloud Atlas writers/directors Lana and Andy Wachowski’s original sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending.  The story follows 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.  One thing is abundantly clear from this new trailer: the scope of Jupiter Ascending is positively epic.  The Wachowski siblings appear to have gone all-out with this sci-fi pic, and the result is an ambitious, colorful, and massive world that looks like a whole lot of fun.  Eddie Redmayne feels almost Shakespearean as the villain, and I’m incredibly impressed by just how big and other-worldly this thing is.

First Trailer for The Wachowski Siblings’ JUPITER ASCENDING Starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending.  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.  Judging from this trailer, one thing is abundantly clear about Jupiter Ascending: this is the Wachowskis going 100%, full-blown sci-fi.  Coming off the philosophical (and excellent) Cloud Atlas, this film appears to be something a bit more in the vein of The Matrix for the Wachowskis in that it appears to be lighter and a bit more adventurous in spirit.  The world building on display in this trailer is nuts, and though the footage is indeed very out-there, I have a feeling once audiences settle in to the JA universe it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona BaeJupiter Ascending opens in 3D on July 25, 2014.
