Dir. the Wachowskis
Siding with “safe” over potentially “sorry,” Warner Brothers pulled the Wachowskis’ (the Matrix trilogy, Cloud Atlas) Jupiter Ascending from its Summer 2014 release to fine tune the picture’s special effects and pacing. Mila Kunis (Ted, Black Swan) stars as Jupiter Jones, a girl destined for galactic greatness despite her current predicament of cleaning toilets on Earth. Her life changes when a genetically-engineered, ex-military hunter named Caine (Channing Tatum- 22 Jump Street, Foxcatcher) tracks her down. Jupiter discovers the Queen of the Universe has targeted her for assassination. Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, “Game of Thrones”), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables, The Theory of Everything), Terry Gilliam (“Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” Monty Python and the Holy Grail), and James D’Arcy (Let’s Be Cops, Cloud Atlas) costar.
