A brand new international trailer has been released for Jupiter Ascending, showing off a bit more of the film’s action sequences. The film looks grand, with a focus on design and visuals that will hopefully add to the film’s plot. We’ve got our fingers crossed for this one, but are approaching it with some reservations. After all, the Wachowskis haven’t really been able to even come close to their sci-fi classic The Matrix, and their last film Cloud Atlas failed at the box-office with mixed reviews.
Written and directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski.
Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.
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.
