The Biggest Superhero Films That Didn't Happen, Part 2
Comic Books, Film
Andy and Lana Wachowski are working on a much bigger scale than ever before with Jupiter Ascending. Sure, the Matrix filmmakers explored an Earth decimated by machines and worlds within worlds, but now they’re making the leap to space, as you can see in the first trailer for the sci-fi epic.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Jupiter Jones (Mila 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 (Channing 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.
Jupiter Ascending, which also stars Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne, hits theaters on July 25, 2014.
