The Wachowskis’ “Jupiter Ascending” looks great. It’s got everything I want in my sci-fi actioner — lots of sci-fi and lots of action. And Mila Kunis is pretty darn cute, too. I’m not a fan of C-Tate and the facial hair, though. What is the deal with that facial hair? The combination of it and his voice…I dunno, it doesn’t quite mesh. But then, I’m thinking the producers have more to worry about than C-Tate’s voice in this movie.
Anyways, take a gander at a new French trailer for the film, due out this summer. Does it look like a hit for the Wachowskis? Not so much. They better get that “Matrix” sequel ready soon before they lose any ability to greenlight another movie for the next few decades…
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) 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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (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.
Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy, and Tim Pigott-Smith.
