Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi action adventure film Jupiter Ascending. The plot follows genetically engineered former military hunter (Channing Tatum) sent to Earth to track down and protect Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), an unassuming immigrant worker whose genetic signature makes her next in line for a royal inheritance. Which of course puts a giant bullseye on her back.
After stepping away from sci-fi action in favor of philosophical sci-fi Cloud Atlas the Wachowski’s are back to their comfort zone. This checks all the boxs in the summer blockbuster checklist and with two of Hollywoods premiere up and coming talents headlining whats not to like. It’s always nice to see a Sean Bean appearance even though he will likely die and I base that solely on his history on film.
The supporting cast also includes Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith.
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.
