Andy and Lana Wachowski — the sibling creators behind the Matrix trilogy — return to sci-fi with the upcoming Jupiter Ascending. The follow-up to last year’s Cloud Atlas, the film stars Mila Kunis as Jupiter, a downtrodden housemaid who’s destined for greater things — think savior of the universe — as long as she manages to stay alive long enough to realize her cosmic inheritance. That’s where Channing Tatum’s Caine comes in, a “genetically engineered ex-military hunter” charged with tracking down Jupiter and ultimately pulling back the curtain on her true identity. Warner Bros. has unveiled the official trailer today, revealing an early look at project that Lana Wachowski characterizes as a “science-fiction space opera.” Check it out below.
Jupiter Ascending is scheduled to hit theaters July 25, 2014.
