A lengthy new trailer for the Wachowskis’ new sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending has been released, showing off a ton of weird and beautiful footage from the film.

The more we see, the more intrigued we are to get a good look at the Wachowskis’ latest sci-fi offering. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis should make for a great cast, but it’s hard to look past those weird ears on Tatum. The new footage is gorgeous and strange, which might just sum up this movie pretty well.

It’s worth noting that, in an effort to generate some buzz for the project, the studio actually did a surprise screening at the recent Sundance Film Festival. Sadly, it did not go well. The screening apparently wasn’t that well attended, according to reports from the event, and those who did see it did not come away impressed by the troubled production (choice quote: "I hated it"). Oops.

Check out an updated synopsis below:

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 other people’s houses 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.

Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think of the new footage:

Jupiter Ascending opens Feb. 6, 2015.
