A new trailer for Andy and Lana Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending has arrived, which certainly makes the movie look pretty epic. However the jury is slightly out, as historically this sort of film, which takes sci-fi to the edge of fantasy, has always looked great beforehand but underwhelmed on release (e.g. The Chronicles Of Riddick or Dune).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix).
‘Jupiter Jones (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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (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.’
We’re definitely hoping the actual movie is as cool as it appears when it’s released in July.
