A new trailer has arrived for the Wachowskis’ new sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending, and it just keeps getting weirder. In a good way.
The new trailer is an international cut, and it shows that the Matrix creators haven’t lost their touch for weird, ambitious science fiction. This one looks like it’ll be a nice spiritual successor to Cloud Atlas, and it promises to be a legit deep-space adventure.
We get to see some more action from Channing Tatum’s alien-wolf-albino character as he heads to earth to retrieve Mila Kunis’ character so she can fulfill her destiny in the stars. The Japanese version of the trailer includes some different beats from the U.S. version, and we’re definitely curious to see more.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
