I know the Wachowski’s haven’t exactly been the big box office draws they once were, but the truth is, they’re still amazing storytellers and have a unique vision that ends up on screen. As such, I’m always looking forward to what they have up their sleeves, especially when it comes to Jupiter Ascending. It’s an original science fiction story from their minds, and one of the few releases coming up that isn’t a remake, reboot, or based on a book, movie, or video game. It’s a wholly original property, and considering their last original sci-fi idea gave us The Matrix, I’m pretty excited.
This looks awesome. It’s hard to watch this trailer and not be impressed to some degree (even if it’s just visually). They’re going for epic and based off of this trailer, they’re doing a decent job of it. I’m hoping the film manages to be deeper than the VFX work and deliver an overall amazing experience for audiences. What do you guys think of the trailer?

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.
Jupiter Ascending will land in theaters on July 18, 2014.
