First Trailer for The Wachowski Siblings’ JUPITER ASCENDING Starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum Read

via: Collider

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending.  The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who has to scrub toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe.  Channing Tatum co-stars as a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down.  Judging from this trailer, one thing is abundantly clear about Jupiter Ascending: this is the Wachowskis going 100%, full-blown sci-fi.  Coming off the philosophical (and excellent) Cloud Atlas, this film appears to be something a bit more in the vein of The Matrix for the Wachowskis in that it appears to be lighter and a bit more adventurous in spirit.  The world building on display in this trailer is nuts, and though the footage is indeed very out-there, I have a feeling once audiences settle in to the JA universe it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Sean BeanEddie RedmayneDouglas BoothTuppence MiddletonJames D’ArcyTim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.  Jupiter Ascending opens in 3D on July 25, 2014.
