Finally a good glimpse at what the Wachowski's have in store for us in JUPITER ASCENDING because the first looks were not all that thrilling for me. With the release of this trailer however, I can foresee a much better future for the movie and even if they delayed the movie only to get the right marketing in place, I'm ok with that!
Further, the movie is being painstakingly converted to 3D by none other than Stereoscopic Supervisor Chris Parks (GRAVITY), who I just interviewed for our Fall Stereographer Series - be sure to check that out. So you can expect an amazing 3D experience. Legend3D is the conversion house.
The scope of the movie is jaw-dropping and it looks like the VFX are up to the task. It's all got to be believable - the story will stretch our suspension of disbelief dramatically, but then again this is coming from the makers of THE MATRIX sooooo....
Here's the storyline for the movie:
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila 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 (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 opens on February 6, 2015 in 3D, IMAX 3D and flat.
