Trailer Watch: Jupiter Ascending teaser trailer

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?

The film opens July 25, 2014.

Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:

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 toilets 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.

    We know he’s the greatest soldier ever because he has elf ears. And eyeshadow.

    Anyone want to bet on this including some ludricrously impractical scheme involving farming human bodies, a la both The Matrix and Cloud Atlas?

      Cloud Atlas wha…?

      Oh right the clones who had no rights as basic human beings. I think they were talking about gay/trans people, maybe.
