Last year most of America decided to not pay any mind to what easily was one of the best movies of the year, Cloud Atlas. Regardless of how the movie did in the box office, and we’re still slightly upset over how grossly underrated it is, the Wachowskis are moving on forward with their latest science fiction adventure, Jupiter Ascending.
Principal photography began today on the upcoming sci-fi action flick, which means movie-goers were due to find out what exactly this movie is all about. At this point we knew that Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum will play our two lead characters in the futuristic world. Mind you, the Wachowskis are the same two men who created the elaborate sci-fi world of The Matrix and the topsy turvy futures in Cloud Atlas. The two have an amazing imagination which has contributed in many great ways to the latest wave of science fiction cinema. In short, it’s easy to see that this reporter is crazy excited to find out what the filmmaking duo has next up their sleeve. Read on to find out what Jupiter Ascending is all about.
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Now that filming has begun, maybe there’s a chance we could see a couple of photos from the set. Then again, we barely got any for Cloud Atlas and we wouldn’t mind being surprised a little bit when we see the finished product on July 25th, 2014.
Are you looking forward to Jupiter Ascending?
