It’s here! The trailer for The Wachowski’s latest science fiction film, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ which stars Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Above you can see a candid photo of Tatum on the set and obviously, this is a very different look for the actor. It should be interesting to see what the ‘Matrix’ creators do with these two hot young actors in their return to the sci-fi genre. Yesterday a low res video surfaced, but now the sleek official trailer has debuted. You can see both below.
Here is the synopsis of the film:
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.
Below is a low res video. It looks to have been filmed with a cell phone from a TV screen. The short clip is from ‘Entertainment Tonight’ which is a sensationalistic “tabloid” program, so rather than highlighting the science fiction elements of the film, the focus is on “Magic Mike kissing Ashton [Kutcher]‘s girlfriend.” *eyeroll*
But you can check it out for yourself:
Well, luckily the actual trailer is now available for viewing, minus the dopey commentary.
Looks pretty epic! Could this make Channing Tatum a certified leading man? He’s been on the rise for a few years now, but his movies’ grosses have been uneven. And this would be his first foray into full-blown science fiction.
Are you intrigued by this movie? At first glance, I’d say the movie looks like it has real potential. What do you think?
