JUPITER ASCENDING MOVIE TRAILOR
Mila Kunis Gets
Ready to Save Earth
JUPITER ASCENDING MOVIE TRAILOR |The complex space mythology of next year’s sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending has so far required multiple trailers to fully explain the plot. The latest clip does the best job so far, only glancingly focusing on Channing Tatum’s wolfman alien bodyguard who arrives on earth to protect cosmic-queen-in-waiting Jupiter (Mila Kunis).
The new trailer lays out the basics: The Earth was seeded by an extraterrestrial dynasty tens of thousands of years before, and the overlords, led by Eddie Redmayne’s operatically evil Balem, are about to come a-harvesting. The one holdup to their plans is Kunis’ modest earthling, who is really a genetic heir to the planet. The spot also features a more active and assertive Kunis, facing off against Balem and comically romancing Tatum’s hybrid warrior. “Your majesty, I have more in common with a dog than I have with you,” he warns. “I love dogs, I’ve always loved dogs,” she sighs.
Jupiter Ascending is the latest from The Matrix masterminds Lana and Andy Wachowski, and is based on their original screenplay. It was shadowed by bad buzz earlier in the year, when it was moved from its prime July release date to Feb. 6, 2015, with the studio, Warner Bros. saying the Wachowskis needed more time to complete the heavy special effects. The movie seemed to get a positive reaction at Comic-Con in July, when Tatum was on hand to show off what looks from the trailers to be eye-popping intergalactic footage. “[The Wachowskis are] absolutely out of their minds,” he said according to Slashfilm. “We tried to do something different, something you’ve never seen before.”
