Warner Bros. and Village RoadShow have premiered a brand new trailer and the first two posters for the Wachowskis Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis set to hit theaters on July 18.
The sci-fi epic looks like exactly something you'd expect from Andy and Lana Wachowski and I have to give it to WB for continuing to spend money and place their faith in the sibling filmmakers. While they haven't really impressed me with their last two efforts -- Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas -- I can appreciate the ambition on display.
Jupiter Jones (Mila 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 toilets 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.
Channing Tatum (Magic Mike) and Mila Kunis (Oz The Great and Powerful) lead an international cast that also includes Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables), Douglas Booth (LOL), Tuppence Middleton (TV's "The Lady Vanishes"), Doona Bae (Cloud Atlas), James D'Arcy (Hitchcock) and Tim Pigott-Smith (Alice in Wonderland).
