Jupiter Ascending (2015)
Jupiter Ascending SynopsisFrom 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.

Jupiter Ascending Premiered And It Did Not Go Well, At All
It was revealed yesterday that the surprise screening at this year’s Sundance was the Wachowski’s highly anticipated sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending — which is kind of odd because you don’t normally think of a film requiring 3D glasses as the secret screening of Sundance. Nevertheless, this was the first time anyone has seen this film. Unfortunately, the reception was not what Warner Bros. was hoping for (i.e. it was really bad).

Edge Of Tomorrow Probably Forced Jupiter Ascending's Delay
The question one asks is, did WB make this decision to save their summer, or to save Jupiter Ascending? The sci-fi gumbo, directed by the Wachowski siblings, was always going to be a tough sell. There's Channing Tatum with elfin ears, a half-wolf assassin falling in love with a janitor played by Mila Kunis who may be a queen.

Jupiter Ascending Pushed Back To 2015

Jupiter Ascending Makes Eyeballs Melt With Stunning New Trailer
With even more gorgeous worlds, transforming spaceships and badass weaponry than the first trailer, this preview earns the tagline “The Battle for Our World Begins With Her,” because it definitely looks like one of the largest scale wars that cinema has ever seen. All it needs is a tree-filled planet called Schmendor or something.

Jupiter Ascending Gets A New International Trailer
In case you didn't recognize him, that is billy goat Channing Tatum trying on some sort of aristocratic space accent as Caine, a bounty hunter sent after Jupiter who soon learns how special she is. And, probably, how gorgeous Ms. Kunis happens to be. It’s a lot easier to bail from a mission mission where you have to kill someone when they look like Mila Kunis.

Channing Tatum Launches Into Battle In New Jupiter Ascending Still

Jupiter Ascending And Joe Wright's Pan Get New Release Dates
Following-up their ambitious Cloud Atlas, the Wachowski siblings have ventured to the wider universe for Jupiter Ascending. This universe is one where humans are considered to be near the very bottom of the evolutionary ladder - and yet a lowly human maid named Jupiter (Kunis) is thought to be a threat to the Queen of the Universe.

Terry Gilliam Takes Small Part In The Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending
“Off at dawn tomorrow to pretend to be an actor in the new Wachowski’s (sic) film Jupiter Ascending. It’s a small but vital part (or so I’m told).” Not that much is known about the film’s plotline anyway, so we could know his name and occupation and still have no idea who he is.

Jupiter Ascending Reveals Plot As Wachowskis Begin Production
Finally, we know the names of Kunis and Tatum's characters, and have some idea what the film's title refers to. Not only is Jupiter Ascending and allusion to the Zodiac, but also the destiny of its title character! Ratcheting up the drama of this adventure tale, Jupiter doesn't know about her prophesized rise to power, but previous reports tell us the extraterrestrial Queen of the Universe does, and so wants Jupiter dead. According to these same early reports, Caine is the Queen's huntsman in what seems to be a sci-fi Snow White tale.

The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending, Starring Mila Kunis And Channing Tatum, Sets July 2014 Release
Because the Matrix name still means a whole lot to studios, the Wachowskis are moving full speed ahead on their next giant project, Jupiter Ascending, a futuristic drama set in a future world where humans have become the lowest species on the intergalactic totem pole. With Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum on board to star and an easy-to-embrace premise (unlike poor Cloud Atlas), Jupiter Ascending has a ton of potential, and Warner Bros. has now shown a huge sign of faith in it

The Wachowskis' Cloud Atlas Follow-Up Jupiter Ascending Secures Extra Financing
Though it managed to eventually make an impressive $107 million worldwide, Cloud Atlas was a sad entry in the box office of 2012, an expensive and beautiful passion project that divided critics and was roundly rejected by American audiences. Even the poor movie's Blu-ray release has been pushed back all the way to May

English Ingenue Tuppence Middleton Joins The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending
Middleton has signed on to Jupiter Ascending, Andy and Lana Wachowski's follow-up to their ambitious adaptation of Cloud Atlas. The 25-year-old actress who recently wrapped on a small role in Danny Boyle's upcoming Trance joins a cast that includes Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and her former co-star Sean Bean.

Douglas Booth Joins The Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending
The Wachowskis are one of the more admirable forces in Hollywood. Their vision remains unaffected by a viewing audience that often chastises them for their films, including their bloated novel adaptations; the terrible machine-filled sequels; and their reboot of one of the most vapid cartoons in history. Even as essentially useless a couple of their films may be, the rest are quite memorable and work on a technical level that other directors only dream of.

Sean Bean Cast As Han Solo Type In Wachowski Starship's Jupiter Ascending
With fantasy epics like The Lord or the Rings and Game of Thrones to his credit, Sean Bean has forged a reputation for performances that carry a quiet warrior gravitas and dignified dramatic weight. So when we hear he's been cast in a new role, obviously we expect it to be a part that demands some serious swagger.

Les Miserables Star Eddie Redmayne To Join Channing Tatum In Wachowskis' Next Sci-Fi Effort
It's unclear what Redmyane's role will be, and as much as I want him to go full Cloud Atlas transformation and play an alien, it seems more likely he'll be a human as well. Either way, it's great to see the actor gaining a higher profile. His role as Marius should have plenty of emotional young girls swooning after him

Crazy Details Emerge About The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending
As Vulture rightly points out, what happens next is a bit similar to the plot of Snow White and the Huntsman: Tatum plays a more-evolved creature who's also a bounty hunter sent to kill Kunis's character, but instead he falls in love with her, and the two of them presumably team up

Channing Tatum And Mila Kunis In The Running For The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending
While we sadly know no plot details, we can extrapolate that Tatum, with two of 2012's noteworthy box offices successes (The Vow and 21 Jump Street) under his belt, will be pulling down a major check from WB should he sign on. He's proven his bankability with audiences and his charisma to critics, so he'd be a major get for Jupiter.

The Wachowski Siblings Want Natalie Portman To Star In Jupiter Ascending
The last time a director approached Natalie Portman about starring in a science-fiction epic, it didn't turn out so well. I am, of course, referring to what happened with Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity back in 2010. After hopes of landing Angelina Jolie for the lead role in the project were destroyed, the filmmaker went after the the future Oscar winner, only to be denied.

Actors probably are too-- Keanu Reeves is set for life thanks to the money he brought in from The Matrix
