We are just about four weeks away from the release of the upcoming sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending. Back in January, we were given a chance to take a look at a photo from Entertainment Weekly that gave us our first look at what the character Caine would look like in the new film. Now, as we begin to approach the film’s release date, we have an even better look at the film. The good people at Warner Bros. Pictures have given us a look at two new character posters for Jupiter Ascending.
Just in case you have never heard of the film, or are unfamiliar with its premise, here is a quick synopsis of the film courtesy of the Jupiter Ascending’s official website.
Jupiter Jones 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, 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 character posters feature the two main characters of the film. First, we have Jupiter Jones. Jupiter, who is played in the film by actress Mila Kunis, is very much like Disney’s Cinderella. By day, she is nothing more than a maid who spends her days cleaning up after other people. Little does she know that she is destined for greatness.
Then, we have Caine; who is played in the film by 22 Jump Street’s Channing Tatum. As the official synopsis says, Caine is a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, who ultimately helps Jupiter discover that she is meant for much more than cleaning other people’s toilets.
Jupiter Ascending was both written and directed by siblings Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, the creators of films like The Matrix Trilogy and Cloud Atlas.
The film stars Oz the Great and Powerful’s Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones and 22 Jump Street’s Channing Tatum as Caine. The film also stars Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean as Stinger, Douglas Booth, James D’Arcy, Les Misérables Eddie Redmayne, and more.
Jupiter Ascending is scheduled to be released on July 18, 2014.
