From the creators of the Matrix Trilogy, as the new trailer prominently lets us know, comes Jupiter Ascending–and man, this movie is going to be out of this world. You think Mila Kunis is cool when she’s tapping her own barrel of Jim Beam, wait till you see her save the world!
Mila is Jupiter Jones (she’s the one ascending), a Russian immigrant who cleans toilets until she discovers a fact she’s slow to believe: she’s actually heir to the title of Queen of the Universe. (It’s in her DNA.) She tells Channing Tatum–who looks weirdly wild as a half-human messenger–that she’s “nobody.” But the universe, and Tatum, begs to differ. Collider says Jupiter Ascending “looks like a big, crazy, space opera.” It certainly looks ambitious and spooky and like there’s a lot at stake–it is the universe, after all. If suspension of disbelief holds–and the Wachowskis are pretty good at that–this could be a classic space epic. They’re sure not holding anything back. Scheduled for February 6, 2015. IMAX 3D may just be the choice.
