New JUPITER ASCENDING Trailer Aims For The Epic

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
Fans of the future dystopian segment in Lana and Andy Wachowski's Cloud Atlas, take note. The second trailer for their latest flick takes a lot of that hefty sci-fi morality and ethics ball game seen in the Seoul-set story of that already epic film, and stretches it to an intergalactic scope. Complete with a Channing Tatum space elf.

But does it look any good? Well... maybe. At any rate it certainly looks ambitious. As it were this thing is like Lord Of The Rings, Star Wars, Dune, The Fifth Element, The Wizard Of Oz and the Wachowski's very own The Matrix and Cloud Atlas rolled into one.

Tatum, the aforementioned space elf, is protector of earth girl, Mila Kunis, or er... the titular Jupiter Jones. Seems she's a chosen one of sorts, and as the trailer shows quite literally the queen bee *ahem*... or, as it sounds like from some convenient voice over: in a vast network of galaxy spanning corporations that own planets like building plots, she is the rightful owner of the deed to Earth itself. Which Eddie Redmayne wants to harvest for resources. Yum. It all sounds rather silly, and the trailer plays it very serious, and I am by no means sure that this is going to be good, but I am also not in the least clear on if it will be bad either. In conclusion, it will definitely be something!

    I'll give you that there's some touches of Star Wars (the prequels) and Lord of the Rings here, but mostly this just looks like CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK.

  • Elsie Paroubek

    Looks like an Australian transvestite's nightmare. A miscast one at that.

  • Get rid of the ears and I'm in.

  • Marc Clement

    looks beautiful... and dumb

  • Bos

    And now the most important question of all: will Sean Bean be able to survive until the end of the movie?

  • Mehaillien Thundercross

    Spoiler alert: Sean Bean dies.

    Dammnit you beat me too it!

  • Yojimbo

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Time to cast Sean in Friday the 13th Universal Terminator Soldier.
    Sean plays a cyborg Soldier driven mad by constant time traveling to fight in many wars, so mad he becomes a time traveling serial killer of course he dies and dies but he keeps coming back for more.

  • Thomas Silver

    AGAIN!?!?! :(

  • ColinJ

    So Warner Bros is still throwing money at these two? After how many bombs?

    Add another one to that list.

    The moment I saw C-Tates in guyliner and elf ears I was like "Nah..."

  • Yojimbo

    It looks pretty i'll give it a shot.I'd much rather watch a car crash by the Wachowski's than watch a Ratner,Bay or Snyder movie.
