The Wachowski’s “Jupiter Ascending” Trailer Looks Awesome, But What The Hell Is It About?
Filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix Trilogy) released the official trailer last night for their next epic feature:
Starring Channing Tatum and mega-babe Mila Kunis, the film appears to be a wildly visual sci-fi adventure flick with no shortage of laser beams, space ships, robots or aliens. I think I even saw a dragon in there. We can’t be too sure what exactly this is about, even the plot description on the youtube page is unclear;
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.
So… all we really know is that this Jupiter (Kunis) gets tracked down by Caine (Tatum) who is genetically engineered for some reason by some people in some place and she is taken because of some genetic signature that lets her inherit something extraordinary that could mess with the cosmos – or something. Right, totally clear guys.
It does look cool, though.
