Those unhappy that Hollywood has become a mass producer of worn out ideas should take note of "Jupiter Ascending." The new film, an original science-fiction feature from Andy and Lana Wachowski ("The Matrix," "Cloud Atlas"), stars Channing Tatum as a splice ("I'm a hybrid wolf and human," Tatum said this year), Mila Kunis as the possible queen of the universe, and looks positively massive. Warner Bros. released the first "Jupiter Ascending" teaser trailer on Monday, days before it's set to go into theaters with prints of "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." Check it out below (the music is by composer Michael Giacchino), along with the film's official synopsis. "Jupiter Ascending" is out in theaters on July 25, 2014.
Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science-fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. 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.
