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. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

For some of us here, Jupiter Ascending, the new film from Andy and Lana Wachowski, is among the most anticipated films of 2014. It doesn’t rank quite that high for me, but I’m still curious to see what the siblings do with a huge space opera that follows a cleaning lady from Earth who is pulled into cosmic intrigue when otherworldly powers find that her DNA puts her in line for a position of great power in the universe.
We’ve seen a trailer for the film, and now there’s a new image that gives us a good look at the hybrid hunter played by Channing Tatum. Read More »

The movies of 2013 were great and we’re all anxiously anticipating 2015, but let’s not overlook 2014. While the upcoming calendar isn’t packed as full of blockbusters that make film fans salivate, 2014 has some pretty awesome looking movies from several of the best filmmakers in the world. It has its share of massive franchise films too and while maybe they’re not Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator or Batman fighting Superman, I’ll take Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, the Wachowksis and David Fincher any day.
Below, read my top ten anticipated films of 2014. Read More »
The last film from Andy and Lana Wachowski, Cloud Atlas, ranged through time from centuries in our civilization’s past to thousands of years in the future. So, by comparison, the scope of their new film Jupiter Ascending, which merely flies from Chicago into deep space, seems almost restrained.
But nothing else looks restrained in the new film, which sees Channing Tatum as a sort of hybrid animal-human hunter tracking down a woman on earth (Mila Kunis) who holds the key to galactic intrigue.

Whether or not you like the films by Andy and Lana Wachowski, there’s no arguing that the siblings go all-out when putting together a movie. They go big, and they go weird, and there is simply no one else making movies in quite the same mode.
What’s their next film, Jupiter Ascending going to be like? Not small, that’s for sure. Channing Tatum plays a wolf/albino hybrid who falls in with a human woman (Mila Kunis) who attracts the ire of the Queen of the Universe, by virtue of possessing identical genetic material. Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne are in the film as well.
The film is in post-production now, and Andy Wachowski recently said the film is going much more smoothly than Cloud Atlas did in post-prodution, but that the effects are “way more complicated.” After the break, Lana talks about the film in other terms. Read More »
While many fans have started looking ahead to the summer of 2015, we have a full summer of blockbusters to watch before that. 2014 will provide new movies from well-known franchises and characters like Spider-Man, X-Men, Transformers, Fast and Furious, as well as Planet of the Apes. Lots of familiar properties to go around for everyone.
Then on July 25, 2014 comes a film with no precursor. It has no built-in franchise awareness and, at this point, very few clues to its nature are available. That movie is Jupiter Ascending, the latest film from the groundbreaking Andy and Lana Wachowski. The wholly original sci-fi action film stars Mila Kunis as “a cleaning woman who, unbeknownst to her, shares a genetic makeup with the Queen of the Universe. The Queen isn’t all that happy about the existence of a potential rival, and sends a character played Channing Tatum to track her down.”
In a new interview, Tatum revealed that he’s playing a half-wolf, half-human in the film and said the Wachowskis are “doing stuff that’s never been done.” Read More »
