"Your parents never told you the truth. The year of your birth, there was a prophecy that our leader would be born to liberate us. That leader is you." Yes, that's basically a line from the recent "Jupiter Ascending" trailer, but no, this exact quote comes from "Exodus: Gods and Kings," the latest Biblical epic attempting to shatter the Christmastime box office. From "Gladiator" and "The Counselor" director Ridley Scott, "Exodus" retells the classic Moses legend with ex-Batman Christian Bale as the chosen one and Joel Edgerton as Ramesses, wearing more eye-liner than Jack Nicholson's Joker. This is The Good Book as The Comic Book. There's already controversy surrounding Scott's decision to whitewash cast — a fair and necessary conversation that could pick up steam closer to its release — but as far as white-casts-playing-Middle-Eastern-characters are concerned, "Exodus: Gods and Kings" has a mighty ensemble to amplify its CG spectacle. »

The brand new trailer for “Jupiter Ascending” is here! The film written and by visionary directors The Wchowskis stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton and Tim Pigott-Smith in a revolutionary sci-fi adventure. Here’s more about the film. “Jupiter Jones (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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin [ Read More ]

A pointy-eared Channing Tatum must face at least one winged lizard creature thing in order to protect Mila Kunis, Earth’s last hope in the new sci-fi Jupiter Ascending. After getting pushed back to next year, Jupiter Ascending sort of vanished, no more trailers, posters, nothing, until now. Well I’m happy to tell you that regardless […]
Fleming: I found it interesting that audiences turned up their noses at A Walk Among The Tombstones, a thriller that had what should have been all you need for a hit — Liam Neeson on a one-sheet, holding a gun. The filmmaker Scott Frank made a throwback to the ’70s films he grew up loving. The title didn’t help: didn’t it evoke memories of being dragged to the cemetery to pay posthumous respects to Grandpa? In my view, it got maligned unfairly by critic squeamishness over grisly scenes that weren’t there. Kenny Turan called it Eli Roth torture porn, though Roth told me last week the critic told him he’d never actually watched a Roth film. »

When Warner Brothers pulled Jupiter Ascending from its summer slot less than 7 weeks before its expected July 16 premiere date, they cited the need for more time to finish complex special effects. »

Mila Kunis may insist to Channing Tatum that she's "nobody," but he knows better. In the sci-fi action thriller Jupiter Ascending, which was supposed to have been in theaters this past July but is instead coming out in February, Mila plays Jupiter Jones, alien royalty left working as a maid on Earth and none the wiser—until Sean Bean's Stinger fills her in and secures Channing's intergalactic warrior Caine as her protector. Though more than human herself, Mila needs that protection because one of the other heirs to the world-domination throne, Eddie Redmayne's super-mean-looking Balem, wants her dead. And he has that British accent, so you know he's »
Jupiter Ascending has great directors, a well known cast, and a large scope with lots of action. So why are very few people excited for this movie? Every post we've put out for Jupiter Ascending lands with a real thud, with hardly any clicks, comments, or shares.
The movie opens in February, which is where bad movies go to die. While very different, this feels like a repeat of John Carter to me, a movie full of cool ideas that alienates mainstream audiences — how did James Cameron turn Avatar into such a success?
Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in "Jupiter Ascending," an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix).

By now you’ve probably heard of Jupiter Ascending.
Originally slated to hit theatres this past summer, the film was pulled from the theatrical release schedule in order to give some added time to the special effects in the film. After all, this is a space fantasy, and the Wachowskis, the sibling directing duo who brought us The Matrix, weren’t going to let their space opera look anything but state-of-the-art. Judging from the newly released trailer, their wait has paid off.
With colourful visuals and CGI-effects, Jupiter Ascending tells the tale of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), and earth-bound human who just happens to be reincarnated space royalty. Unknowingly, Jupiter stands at the top of a rival space family’s hit list, she’s the only thing standing in the way from Belem (Eddie Redmayne) and family from taking over Earth. Lucky for Jupiter, she has Caine (Channing Tatum) by »

Unbeknown to Earth’s residents, life on Earth and countless other planets has been seeded by families of alien royalty for the purpose of harvesting the evolved living creatures once they reach a “Darwinian state of perfection” to produce a type of youth serum that allows them to live forever. When the matriarch of the House of Abrasax, the most powerful of the alien dynasties, dies her children Balem (Eddie Redmayne), Kalique (Tuppence Middleton) and Titus (Douglas Booth) are at war over the heir. Eventually a new heir comes to their attention; Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), an unsuspecting Earth-living, unlucky caretaker of other people’s homes. Jupiter encounters Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), [ Read More ]

This trailer for Andy and Lana Wachowski's "Jupiter Ascending" has accomplished the unthinkable, and that's to make us look forward to next February. Sean Bean's character Stinger - who is part bee, thank you - gives Jupiter (Mila Kunis) the scoop on the intergalactic mishegoss she's been dragged into as the unwitting heir to an alien dynasty. Channing Tatum, who plays a half-albino wolf/human hybrid named Caine Wise, neatly lays out who the House of Abrasax is, what their deal is, and why one in particular wants her dead.
Eddie Redmayne, who's been winning over critics with his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything," is chewing tons of scenery as Balem, the most overtly evil of the Abrasax heirs. We also get a look at pretty, pretty Titus Abrasax, played by Douglas Booth, and Kalique Abrasax, played by Tuppence Middleton.
It looks rad as »

Audiences didn’t get a chance to see the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending this summer when it was pushed from its July 2014 release date into February. But now fans of the brother-sister duo can be satiated with a new trailer for the film that looks to be a wacky ride featuring Channing Tatum as a “half-wolf, half-albino warrior,” Mila Kunis as unlikely royalty, and Eddie Redmayne as a wonderfully hammy actor, apparently.
The trailer features some exposition, some explosions, and one of the most excitingly bizarre exchanges of dialogue in recent memory. “Your majesty, I have more in common with a »

The film-festival circuit this time of year is not unlike presidential-primary season. Venice or Telluride are sort of like the Iowa caucus, an important first step for a film to generate some name recognition and Oscar buzz—but not exactly the setting for a coronation. Toronto is the traditional Oscar-campaign battleground, a sort of New Hampshire primary that often separates the contenders from the pretenders. Last year, Toronto unofficially nominated 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and Dallas Buyers Club, and those films went on to collect major awards.
But this year, the races still remain wide open after the first new rounds, »

The sci-fi epic, which got pushed back to early 2015, wants to bring you into the exciting intergalactic future.
The upcoming sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending is on the rise, and has released this exciting poster as it gears up for its release early next year.
The film stars Channing Tatum as the intergalactic assassin warrior Caine who comes to earth with an assignment from the Queen of the Universe to kill some random human woman, played by Mila Kunis. But when it turns out that she may be more than just a destitute Earthling, Caine decided to risk his life to save hers.
It began as one of the most hotly anticipated sci-fi films of 2014, but some insider politics and panic over the film's large budget saw Jupiter Ascending pushed back from its original summer release date to the doldrums of the early months of 2015.
A new trailer has arrived for Jupiter Ascending, in which the Wachowski siblings pull back the curtain on the fantasy universe in which the film is set. The new teaser establishes the back story to the film, in which we learn that a powerful alien dynasty controls Earth, and doesn’t take kindly to having its ownership challenged. Because, as it turns out, Mila Kunis’ lowly toilet cleaner is actually Earth’s true heir, putting her on collision course with Eddie Redmayne’s alien overlord. Take a look at the new trailer, below… The new...

It's been a bumpy ride to the screen of late for the latest big sci-fi movie from The Wachowskis. If all had gone to plan, then Jupiter Ascending would have been released by now, but Warner Bros took the relatively late decision to push the project back to February 2015.
As has been proven several times in recent years though, that's far from the kiss of death that it may appear, and Warner Bros will remain confident of decent returns for its movie. It's decided to whet our appetites a little more with a new trailer, too. Here it is...

While Channing Tatum rose to prominence in 2006 with roles in both Step Up and She’s The Man, he has since gone on to work with filmmakers such as Roland Emmerich, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Michael Mann, and Steven Soderbergh. An upcoming feature will see Tatum add to that by working with the Wachowski siblings for the first time. Titled Jupiter Ascending, Andy and Lana Wachowski return to the science fiction genre for the first time since the Matrix trilogy, telling the story of an ex-military hunter who comes to Earth to find and protect a woman targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe. Tatum stars alongside Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, and Sean Bean, and the film is set to open in American theatres on February 6th, 2015. A new trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Warner Bros just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming big-budget "Jupiter Ascending" sci-fi film, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. Check it out below. Plot: Jupiter Jones (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 (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. The new movie is directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix) and co-stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, and James D'Arcy. It's set to hit theaters on February 6th, »
If you weren’t sold on the Wachowskis’ “Jupiter Ascending” before it got unceremoniously moved to 2015 from its original 2014 release date, then it’s unlikely this new, laser blastin’, monster fightin’, spaceship flyin’, and Earth imperilin’ new trailer will do it. I think it’s pretty rad myself, but then again, give me shiny spaceships and lasers and I’m there with pants off. Now the question is: would you rather kiss Channing Tatum or a dog? Man, that’s a hard call, especially with that furry thing on his face… Jupiter Jones (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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks.

We almost got to see Jupiter Ascending blow our minds with the latest creative vision of The Wachowskis this past summer. With a July release on the books for quite some time, Warner Bros was hoping to position the film for a summer blockbuster slot of success. Then Edge Of Tomorrow took longer to take off than expected and the film was delayed for the official reasoning of incomplete visual effects. But more than likely, it was Warner Bros making a decision out of business acumen to give Jupiter Ascending the boost it needs to make some much needed money. If the new trailer released on Warner Bros' YouTube channel is any indication, then those visual effects will be more than ready for the film's February 6th release date. This is probably the crispest look at Jupiter Ascending's visuals that we've gotten so far, and better still we've got »
