Last month, we got the first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending, directed by The Wachowski Brothers; best known for writing/directing the Matrix trilogy. Now, we’ve been shown the first official image of the film, featuring Channing Tatum, apparently wielding a gun in mid-air. The image was revealed by Entertainment Weekly, and it looks pretty badass.
While I thought the trailer looked pretty cool, I wasn’t quite sold on the concept at first. After watching the trailer a couple more times and seeing this image, I’m starting to find it a bit more appealing.
Jupiter Ascending takes place in a futuristic universe where humans are very low on the evolutionary ladder. A young, human woman is ordered to be assassinated by the Queen of the Universe, as the her existence may threaten the Queen’s reign.
It doesn’t sound too outlandish in contrast to the Wachowskis’ past films, and I’m actually looking forward to seeing what comes of it. The official trailer can be found below. What do you guys think about the Wachowski’s upcoming film so far?
Jupiter Ascending hits theaters July 18th, 2014, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski, and starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, and Sean Bean.
