The Wachowskis are back and once again, the fate of the universe is at stake, there’s lot of prosthetics and ambitious costumes, and a big sci-fi spectacle being readied to hit the big screen. But here’s the thing, post-“The Matrix” the sibling pair haven’t exactly been box office titans. “Speed Racer” and “Cloud Atlas” were both high stakes stumbles, and one wonders how much of a shot they’ll be given if “Jupiter Ascending” also manages to disappoint.
But they’ll be going all-in with this one starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith, telling the fairy tale-like story of Jupiter Jones, a lowly cleaner who might just be the next in line to rule the galaxy….if she can stay alive. Luckily, the bounty hunter Caine will be there to protect her and things will explode and big buckets of popcorn will be sold.
But will you be buying a ticket? Watch the new trailer below and let us know. “Jupiter Ascending” arrives on July 25th.
