Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum reach for the stars in new 'Jupiter Ascending' posters


Set in the future where gods rule over humans, Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is an unlucky Russian immigrant who cleans toilets for a living. She encounters Caine (Channing Tatum), an interplanetary warrior whom the Queen of the Universe sent to kill Jupiter. Caine tells Jupiter that the stars were pointing to an extraordinary event on the night she was born, and that her DNA could mark her as the universe's next leader.

Warner Bros. has just released the first two posters for "Jupiter Ascending," the newest movie from the Wachowskis ("The Matrix"), each of which features one of the attractive leads in front of very stylized, sci-fi and fantasy heavy backdrops.

The film takes place in the future, and stars Channing Tatum as Caine, an ex-military bounty hunter sent to find Mila Kunis' Jupiter Jones, a normal girl with a special secret that makes her a target for some very powerful people.


Tatum's poster is most striking, as we see the movie star tatted up — if "Cloud Atlas" and this are any indications, the Wachowskis love their tattoos — holding a big gun in a black leather outfit that is one part Han Solo and one part, well, "Magic Mike."

Behind Tatum in a number of golden spheres are enough sci-fi staples to make fans of "The Matrix" blush. On the upper left-hand corner is what looks to be a sinister alien, while the bottom right features some kind of robotic armored suit, similar to the suits from the Wachowskis' own "Matrix Revolutions." Clearly, the Wachowskis are promising some big-time sci-fi action.


Kunis, meanwhile, has the more grounded poster. While Tatum looks like someone out of an old sci-fi serial, Kunis' character is dressed very simply, in a blue and white plaid shirt and black jeans.

Kunis too stands in front of golden spheres, which depict a sprawling metropolitan landscape, an old ballroom and what looks like a Queen out of a fantasy movie standing on a ledge above her people.

And does her costume seem vaguely reminiscent of a certain other regular girl taken to a strange, magical land of Oz? Hmmm...

If the movie delivers on the promise of the posters, it'll be one heck of a spectacle.

Well it certainly looks adequately spacey. That's my biggest problem with some of these movies, they claim futuristic sci fi and it's really just triangle flat planes and folks skipping in the woods. /csb

odontv 27th-Mar-2014 01:30 am (UTC)
I feel like spacey visuals and plaid just don't go together but on the other hand I know nothing about whatever this is.
