The first clip has been released for Jupiter Ascending, the upcoming sci-fi film from Andy and Lana Wachowski. The clip, which was first shown on Ellen, sees Channing Tatum’s Caine explaining how his flying boots work while he and Mila Kunis’ Jupiter Jones wait for their ride. We’re looking forward to seeing the next offering from the Wachowskis, which should prove a little more audience-friendly after the mixed reception that was awarded to Cloud Atlas.
Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.
Official synopsis for Jupiter Ascending:
Jupiter Jones (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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (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.
From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” is written and directed by the Wachowskis. Award-winning producer Grant Hill, with whom they have collaborated since “The Matrix” Trilogy, is producing, together with Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski. Roberto Malerba and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.
