New posters for The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending with Channing Tatum

Mar. 26, 2014by:

UPDATE: Added Mila Kunis!

A new poster for The Wachowski's upcoming sci-fi summer flick JUPITER ASCENDING has arrived, featuring Channing Tatum's Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter with pointy ears. The film co-stars Mila Kunis (the titular Jupiter of the title), Sean "I'm dead" Bean, Douglas Booth, Eddie Redmayne, Terry Gilliam (yes, that one), James D'Arcy, and Doona Bae. Based on the trailer, this looks like an entertaining, if not odd, science fiction adventure (then again, I guess all sci-fi adventures are "odd" right?) and it's hard to complain when The Wachowski's are at the helm.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

Jupiter Jones 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, 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.

I really loved The Wachowski's last film, CLOUD ATLAS, but can absolutely see how it would be polarizing for a wide audience. Still, it's a wonderfully ambiguous film and a great ride if you've got the time to spare. JUPITER ASCENDING feels like a step between CLOUD ATLAS and THE MATRIX, the filmmaking duo's most renowned work (of which there's been rumblings of a new trilogy) and that may be just what's needed to reach the mainstream.

JUPITER ASCENDING opens on July 18, 2014

Do I think this will flop? Probably. But do I think it actually looks good and will be a fun time at the theater? Absolutely. Eff the haters.

"...hard to complain when The Wachowski's are at the helm?"

That seems odd. The Matrix was awesome, yes, but they haven't seemed to have captured any magic like that since its release in 1999.

John Carter of Jupiter
The only thing that has me worried about this movie is Kunis... I just don't care for her... at all.

You guys are right, definitely the makings of a bomb. The ears are a mistake, I don't really understand what the point of that detail is. Is he an Elf? A Vulcan? I don't know. I know it's ignorant to say that since I haven't read the book, but why use that familiar characteristic? Also, the title isn't very good, and July? This is a perfect March release if I've ever seen one.

I forgot to mention the shield bearing a strong resemblence to the one in Elysium both in aesthetic and execution.

It may have box office bomb written all over it but I still think this movie looks awesome. I loved Cloud Atlas so I have faith in Wachowskis delivering another unique sci-fi epic. My ticket is already sold, I don't give a shit if I am the only one in the theater

I agree. For some reason. When I saw the trailer, it excited me. It was something fresh and different. It sorta reminded me of Dune. It may bomb. It may not but it certainly looks good.

Excited to see this, but rp2011 is right. This has bomb written all over it unfortunately. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

This film has MEGA BOMB written all over it. The studio should just write if off right now and not spend any more money advertising it. Cut your loses,

LMAO.. That's exactly what I was thinking. I will definately see it on DVD and I will most likely like it because I love all their stuff, but i can't honestly see this thing making any type of money.
