The Wachowskis, the siblings behind Cloud Atlas, Bound, Speed Racer and The Matrix trilogy, are preparing to release a new film. The title is Jupiter Ascending and, up until a few months ago, the film has been under extremely high levels of secrecy.
The trailer for Jupiter Ascending has just been released online. The reaction has been mixed. Some are overjoyed at the broad scope of the film, others worry that it looks too much like Cloud Atlas as opposed to the quality and inventiveness of The Matrix.
Jupiter Jones (Mila 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 toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing 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.
