The Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending is the next up on our list of big sci-fi movies this year, and after being pushed back and delayed a couple of times, it finally drops worldwide next week, on February 6. To mark the occasion, Warner Bros. has unleashed a massive gallery of images, and we mean massive, like if you string all of these together and fan through them like a flipbook, you’ll probably see a pretty substantial chunk of the movie. While we’re stoked to see what madness the masterminds behind The Matrix have in store for us, the film had a secret premiere at Sundance last night, and lets just say it didn’t get the warmest of welcomes.
Ranging from the streets of Chicago to the farthest galaxies you can imagine, Jupiter Ascending tells the story of Jupiter (Mila Kunis), a lowly cleaning woman with big dreams, but a knack for getting shit on by life. She still dreams nightly of the stars, but scrubs rich people’s toilets for a living. When Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically modified, ex-military, albino wolf hybrid (yep) shows up, she discovers that she has the exact same DNA as the Queen of the Universe, which puts her in line to inherit, well, the universe. As with any sudden transfer of power, there are those who oppose it, and things get a wee bit out of hand.
