Jupiter Ascending has great directors, a well known cast, and a large scope with lots of action. So why are very few people excited for this movie? Every post we've put out for Jupiter Ascending lands with a real thud, with hardly any clicks, comments, or shares.
The movie opens in February, which is where bad movies go to die. While very different, this feels like a repeat of John Carter to me, a movie full of cool ideas that alienates mainstream audiences — how did James Cameron turn Avatar into such a success?
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.
