Few filmmakers have the keen eye for visual effects and as Lana and Andy Wachowski. With the likes of The Matrix Trilogy, Speed Racer and 2013’s somewhat underwhelming Cloud Atlas, the siblings have an innate ability of bringing sci-fi spectacle to life, immersing the audience in worlds as alien and bizarre as the next.
So, with Jupiter Ascending a little over a week away, there’s no doubting that fans of the eclectic directors are chomping at the bit to see the latest visual delight the pair have cooked up, and today Warner Bros. released a final batch of promo material to stoke that excitement. With over a dozen screenshots cramming up the gallery below, it’s little wonder that there is any of the film left to see; still, the studio’s upcoming space-faring adventure is beautiful to behold.
But with an ensemble cast that could make any sci-fi project go green, there’s more to Jupiter Ascending than its striking aesthetic, as these stills also draw attention to Mila Kunis Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Terry Gilliam and The Theory of Everything‘s Eddie Redmayne as the villainous Balem Abrasax.
Jupiter Ascending is slated to launch in theaters across the planet on February 6. And if you just can’t want to see the Wachowski’s grand spectacle on the big screen, you can delve into the flurry of screenshots and TV spots below.
Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. 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 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. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” is written and directed by the Wachowskis.
