'Jupiter Ascending,' which released two posters earlier today, has just unleashed its latest trailer, giving us a better look at the story. It seems The Wachowskis have merged the standard 'Star Wars'-esque hero's journey with the tale of a princess (Played by Mila Kunis) who finds out her destiny from Channing Tatum after a lifetime of menial labor. The big takeaway from this new spot is that the film looks epic.
Nobody makes movies quite like Andy and Lana Wachowski, so it's not surprising that everything we've seen from 'Jupiter Ascending' looks just plain bonkers and totally unique. Anyone who made the 'Matrix' trilogy and 'Speed Racer' and 'Cloud Atlas' has earned our complete and undying loyalty, mainly because they keep on doing things that we've never seen before. Two new 'Jupiter Ascending' posters arrived today, and they too showcase something completely special: Channing Tatum as a heavily armed, tattooed space elf.
The Wachowskis' upcoming sci-fi epic, 'Jupiter Ascending,' looks and sounds like something taken straight from Patton Oswalt's geeked-out filibuster on 'Parks and Recreation,' and we're into it! A new photo from the film has emerged, featuring Channing Tatum in his new action-packed role as a half-wolf, half-albino warrior, Caine.
2013 is so very close to done. Just a few more minutes in the oven, but keep the fork ready.
Do we, the obsessed movie watchers of the ScreenCrush community, take a break? Heck no! January brings the Sundance Film Festival and then we dive right back into a big year of with some really big movies
'Jupiter Ascending,' the Wachowski's follow-up to 'Cloud Atlas,' has begun filming with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum in the lead roles. While we've been keeping track of the project through casting reports, we still had no official word on what it was actually about. Now Warner Bros. has released its first plot synopsis for us, along with the confirmed casting roster.
Everyone's favorite cinematic murder victim Sean Bean may eventually star in a movie where he isn't killed off. At least, we hope so. The Wachowskis have cast him in 'Jupiter Ascending' as a Han Solo type, which hopefully means maybe the worst that happens is that he gets frozen in carbonite (fingers crossed).
With the studio system no longer promoting actors into stardom, sometimes it takes circuitous routes to become the next big thing. Eddie Redmayne is now in the loop for major roles, after his turn last year as the lead in 'My Week with Marilyn' and with a cherry role in this year's 'Les Miserables' he now looking to join The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending.'
What exactly is going on with the Wachoski siblings' new project 'Jupiter Ascending'? Everything has been under wraps so far about the upcoming movie and we can only guess at this point that it's a sci-fi film. That is, until now. More has been revealed about the strange new flick, but the movie idea sounds closer to a futuristic sequel to 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'
