Here’s what I know so far about the coming summer blockbuster Jupiter Ascending:
It has Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum in it. It’s directed by the Wachowskis. The story has something to do with a galactic war or something.
There are gravity boots.
A clip was debuted Monday morning on Ellen. And it looks…science fictiony.
While you were watching the clip, I looked up some more information on Jupiter Ascending. And holy crap this thing looks goofy.
The plot synopsis courtesy of Wikipedia:
The film’s plot centers on Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a lowly, down on her luck, janitor who learns that her great genetic destiny has far-reaching implications that extend beyond Earth.
Jupiter Jones? That’s not a name for a human woman, that’s a name for a dog. That’s as dumb as naming someone January Jones.
Jupiter encounters Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered interplanetary warrior who came to Earth to reveal that her genetic signature makes her royalty and heir to Earth. Meanwhile he has to protect her from Balem Abrasax (Eddie Redmayne), alien royalty from one of the most powerful dynasties of the Universe, who put a bounty on her head and would rather harvest Earth than lose it to her.
They genetically engineered an interplanetary warrior, but they didn’t think to give him Superman flying skills, so he has to resort to wearing anti-gravity boots?
Sounds like poor planning to me. This has Thor written all over it.
