The Wachowskis are back in familiar territory with their upcoming film ‘Jupiter Ascending’ starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. So far there are three different trailers, which you can watch here, here and here. Now a new clip has debuted featuring an actual scene from the film, wherein Tatum’s mercenary character, Caine, explains his anti-gravity boots to Jupiter Jones (Kunis), an innocent housekeeper who learns that she is the next heir to the universe. He then sweeps her off her feet as they step off from Sears Tower. (Joining ‘Divergent’ it looks like Chicago is quite the hot-spot for futuristic movies.)
Now you can check out the clip from the movie below:
In addition to Tatum and Kunis, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ features an all-star cast, including Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne (pictured below), Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith.
The Wachowskis thrive when dealing with science fiction (The Matrix, Clous Atlas) so hopefully this will be a return to form for them. If their past work is any indication, look for this film to take classic science fiction and filter it through their quirky lens and pepper it with their unique sense of humor.
What do you think? Will you be checking out ‘Jupiter Acending’?
‘Jupiter Ascending’ opens on July 18th.
