The first trailer for the Wachowskis' new sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending has been released, and it looks like it could be cool. I've always been a fan of the Wachowskis' work, and I'm looking forward to seeing this, but I'm not overly excited about it. This most likely won't be one of their best films, but it still looks like it could provide some solid entertainment. As you might expect from this directing duo, the film is going to be visually stunning. They always manage to come up with these really cool-looking worlds. There's just something off about this one, I can quite put my finger on it... maybe it's Channing Tatum's elf ears? The movie also stars Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Doona Bae, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Tim Pigott-Smith, and James D’Arcy. Here's the synopsis,
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.
It's set to be released in theaters on July 25th, 2014.
