Before we’ve even seen the Wachowskis’ “Cloud Atlas,” plot details are leaking for their next movie, “Jupiter Ascending.” While the editors at Vulture admit they are still mightily confused, we are several plot points closer than before.
– It’s a world where humans are considered lesser beings, and “higher forms of life are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons”

– However, she has the exact same DNA as the Queen of the Universe, and therefore threatens her rule
– A bounty hunter, perhaps played by Channing Tatum, is sent to kill Kunis but instead falls in love with her (we thought we were done with Snow White remakes)
– Joseph Gordon-Levitt might also be involved; unspecified reasons
