The thing that struck us the most when that Jupiter Ascending trailer dropped was the ears on star Channing Tatum! Is he some kind of alien elf-type creature? Either way, it’s a look that will certainly be the focus of discussion as the movie’s release date of July 18 inches closer and closer. Entertainment Weekly has premiered a new image of Tatum in action, flying through the air and ready to fire some sort of futuristic gun.
Tatum (soon to be seen in 22 Jump Street) plays Caine, a genetically engineered military man, who plays a pivotal role in changing the fate of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis). She was born under a “night sky,” showing that she is destined for greatness. Yet, after some time, nothing special seems to be happening to her. That all changes with the arrival of Caine, and as seen in the teaser, Jones will be vital in the future of our world and perhaps other worlds as well.
Jupiter Ascending also stars Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton and is the latest from the Wachowskis (Cloud Atlas).
