I've enjoyed most of the films that the Wachowskis have made over the years. The Matrix and Speed Racer are among my favorites. I had high hopes for Jupiter Ascending when I first heard about it. I thought there was a lot of potential for a great film, so I'm kind of bummed that nothing I've seen from the it has looked good to me. I wanted to be excited for it, and even when the first trailer was released I tried to talk myself into liking it. The more that I saw from it though, the worse it looked, and this is coming from a guy who loved Speed Racer, which a lot of people hated. Judging from what fans are saying about the trailers, I think this movie is going to bomb at the box office.
Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in "Jupiter Ascending," an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. 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. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, "Jupiter Ascending" is written and directed by the Wachowskis.
The movie will be released in theaters on July 18th.
