First ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Trailer Promises Lots Of Sci-Fi Action

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 7.59.01 PM

The Wachowskis are hoping to recover from the disappointment of Cloud Atlas with a new sci-fi epic.

Hitting theaters during summer 2014, Jupiter Ascending tells that tale of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a house cleaner whose encounter with genetically-engineered soldier Caine (Channing Tatum) triggers a chain of events that will change the balance of the cosmos. It looks as outrageous as that setup sounds, but I swear the trailer is quite exciting. You can view the clip below:

Did you see those elf ears on Tatum? Those are going to take a few minutes to take seriously.

There is a lot of promise in this trailer, but it also looks like it could end up being a little too schmaltzy for its own good. Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Doona Bae, Tim Pigott-Smith, James D’Arcy, Tuppence Middleton and Douglas Booth round out the supporting cast.

Jupiter Ascending has a July 25, 2014 release date here in the US. Comment below and let us know whether or not this trailer has you excited for the Wachowskis’ latest.
