International Trailer & 15 New Images From ‘Jupiter Ascending’ – Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne…
From Warner Bros Pictures comes this new collection of images and international trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s ‘Jupiter Ascending.’ Starring the likes of Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith, the film opens on February 6th, 2015.
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting 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 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.
