Jupiter is the “One.” Maybe not in quite the way Neo was the “One” in the Wachowski’s “Matrix” series, but she is definitely a game changer in the Wachowski’s upcoming science fiction action movie Jupiter Ascending. And like in “The Matrix” what she can become frightens those in power. It’s got all the makings of Snow White set in space with laser guns and spaceships but I’ll give the benefit of doubt to Andy and Lana that there is more to the movie than that. It is certainly laden with some wicked visual effects as evidenced in the trailer above! Check it out!
Jupiter Ascending stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, James D’Arcy, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton and Doona Bae.
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, Jupiter Ascending tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting 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 (Channing 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.
Jupiter Ascending ascends to US and UK theaters on February 6, 2015.
