The last Jupiter Ascending trailer got mixed reviews when it hit in December, with some folks rolling their eyes at the sci-fi cliches and others enchanted by the Wachowskis‘ creativity and ambition. Today a new Japanese promo has hit for the epic adventure, and while it won’t change any skeptical minds, those who loved the last one will probably be thrilled to see more.

Mila Kunis stars as the Jupiter of the title, a lowly cleaning lady down on Earth. Her life is forever changed when she’s tracked down by an albino wolf-man from outer space (Channing Tatum), because that tends to happen when one is tracked down by an albino wolf-man from outer space.

Briefly: James Marsh, director of Man on Wire and Project Nim, is putting together Theory of Everything, a dramatized biography of physicist Stephen Hawking. To play the scientist, Marsh is reportedly looking to Eddie Redmayne, of Les Miserables, and My Week With Marilyn.

If the deal happens, Marsh will still need an actress to play Hawking’s wife; the film focuses on their relationship. That said, taking into account Redmayne’s age, the time period for the film probably begins in the mid-’60s, when Hawking married Jane Wilde, to whom he was married until 1991. Ideally, the film will shoot this fall. Anthony McCarten scripted. [Deadline]

Not looking so hot, however, is the Sylvester Stallone-Robert De Niro team-up Grudge Match, which has been pushed from a respectable fall 2013 slot to a less auspicious January 2014 one. Hit the jump to read more.

The battle for a plum role in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has become a showdown worthy of the webslinger himself. We know that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will be returning, joined by newcomers Shailene Woodley and (most likely) Jamie Foxx.
