Film: Jupiter Ascending
Jupiter Ascending is a 2015 Science Fiction film created by the Wachowskis, set to be their great comeback. It is set in the distant future focused on Russian immigrant Jupiter, who's played by Mila Kunis. Caine, an interplanetary half-albino, half-wolf warrior-assassin, is played by Channing Tatum and Stinger, a Han Solo-esque character, is played by Sean Bean. Including that lot, it's an All-Star Cast.

Lowly janitor Jupiter Jones (Kunis) discovers she has a great genetic destiny after Caine is sent by the King of the Universe to kill her. The King only wants her dead because the stars aligned on her birthday and her DNA could make her the next ruler of the Universe, which the current one clearly doesn't like the sound of.

The film was co-produced by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures and it filmed primarily in England, finishing in Chicago, Illinois (they left the day after Chris Stark's friend's wedding, no less). It is cinematographer John Toll's second feature film to be shot digitally, the first was Iron Man 3. The score was composed by Michael Giacchino and recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London.

The film is set to be released on February 6th, 2015. Watch the teaser trailer here and the main trailer here.

It's also not a sequel to Mercury Rising.
