Whether you understand them or not, the Wachowskis play by their own rules and push cinematic boundaries with every singe frame. The Matrix wowed the sci-fi/action world, Speed Racer wowed anime fans almost exclusively, Cloud Atlas wowed half of those who saw it (the other half is still trying to figure out what they saw) and their latest film looks to again cater to a special breed of film fan. Expect this to be just as groundbreaking and ambitious but for now let’s just get to the good stuff…check out the first sweet looking trailer for Jupiter Ascending below.
Jupiter Ascending is an intergalactic epic in which humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. Mila Kunis stars as Jupiter Jones, a young destitute human woman who is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen’s reign. Right now this looks good but could go either way so let’s just bask in the mystery and impressive looking visuals and hope for the best.
Jupiter Ascending also stars Channing Tatum (as that genetically-enhanced hunter) and sports a supporting cast including Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, as well as Doona Bae and James D’Arcy who starred in the Wachowski’s Cloud Atlas. Oh and Michael Giacchino is writing the music (which is used in the trailer) and that’s got us stoked. Warner Bros. has slated Jupiter Ascending for release next Summer on July 25th, 2014.
