Jupiter Ascending trailer debuts

10 December 2013

The Wachowskis Reloaded.

The Wachowskis are back with a new futuristic epic, and we’ve been given our first glimpse. Jupiter Ascending, the latest film from the sci-fi siblings, has received its first trailer.

The directing pair who brought us The Matrix series, V for Vendetta and last year’s Cloud Atlas are directing their first original script since Keanu Reeves put on a pair leather trousers and some Ray-Bans.

Judging by the two-minute trailer, Jupiter Ascending deals in space battles aplenty, some impressive future visions of our solar system, plus a bit of interplanetary royal succession drama.

It stars Mila Kunis as a regular schmuck whose DNA suggests greater things, Channing Tatum as the bizarrely attired space warrior who sets her on her path, and Sean Bean - complete with authentic Sheffield accent - as a “Han Solo-type character” sent to protect her.

It looks like an interesting blend of awesome and absurd. We’ll see soon enough when Jupiter Ascending is released on July 25th 2014.
