New Trailer and Posters for JUPITER ASCENDING Starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis

Here is a great new trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s (The Matrix Trilogy, Cloud Atlas) original sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending.  If you’re a fan of the siblings like I am, then you are looking forward to this feast for the eyes.  I hate the word epic, but I’d use it here for sure; look at the scope of this movie!  Sean Bean‘s in it too; I used to just call him Trevelyan (Goldeneye), then Stark (Game of Thrones), and now it’s just Sean Bean.  If you die that many times in your roles, you deserve to be full-named.

In Jupiter Ascending Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum plays an ex-military hunter tasked with tracking her down.

The film also stars Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.

Jupiter Ascending opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 18th, watch the new trailer and read the official synopsis below:

Is There a New MATRIX Trilogy in Development?

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

the-matrix

We don’t usually like to post rumors and headlines that require question marks, but a new Matrix trilogy now has my attention.  Looking at all this now, it would be safe to say that it was inevitable and no surprise to anyone, but I actually would be surprised to see a new trilogy.

With sequels, reboots, remakes and franchises the goal of most major studios today, it’s easy to point to The Matrix as an easy property to work with again.  If you ask me though, I enjoyed the full trilogy as one solid story that was perfectly paced and brought to life by the Wachowski’s.  It doesn’t need another chapter, but if the folks behind the originals have something more to say, let’s hear them out.

Latino Review is reporting that writers/directors Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski are currently developing a new trilogy of Matrix films, with treatments and outlines already being handed into the studio.  So we don’t know if it happening or who will direct, again this is just a single report at this point.  For all we know they could be working on a TV series, which would be interesting to see.

The box office hasn’t been kind to the great work Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski provide, Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas were viewing pleasures but not lucrative enough to be called successes unfortunately.  Do they need to re-visit The Matrix universe to gain trust again?  This summer’s Jupiter Ascending might have a lot riding on it if they want a studios trust.

Do we need another Matrix movie?

Here is the first trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending that follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum is a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down and kiss her.  I added that last part, but you know it makes sense.

The Wachowski’s love their sci-fi even if box offices don’t, I’m talking to you Cloud Atlas you wonderfully misunderstood movie.  This movie looks like a fun ride with shades of The Matrix to entice the weary.  The film also stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.

Jupiter Ascending opens in 3D on July 25, 2014, watch the trailer after the synopsis:

From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting 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.

Well that didn’t take long.  We showed you the first images from the movie and now we have a trailer, it’s unofficially Cloud Atlas day gang!

It’s a six-minute international trailer for Cloud Atlas, a movie based on David Mitchell‘s novel of the same name.  It tracks the lives of multiple characters across multiple eras and how they come together in one way or another.  I knew the movie was going to be huge in terms of scale and visuals, but wow, this looks like someones messed up dream come to life.  They went for it alright, and it’s going to pay off beautifully by the looks of things.
