First Set Photos from The Wachowski Siblings’ JUPITER ASCENDING; Chase Scene Being Filmed at London’s Natural History Museum

     May 13, 2013


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.
