Audiences didn’t get a chance to see the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending this summer when it was pushed from its July 2014 release date into February. But now fans of the brother-sister duo can be satiated with a new trailer for the film that looks to be a wacky ride featuring Channing Tatum as a “half-wolf, half-albino warrior,” Mila Kunis as unlikely royalty, and Eddie Redmayne as a wonderfully hammy actor, apparently.

Fans of Lana and Andy Wachowski will have to wait a little bit longer to delve into the probably dizzying mythology of Jupiter Ascending. Warner Bros. has bumped the sci-fi spectacle from a long-scheduled July 18 release to Feb. 6, 2015, EW confirmed Tuesday.
Starring Channing Tatum as a “half-wolf, half-albino warrior” and Mila Kunis as a janitor whose perfect genetic makeup threatens the reign of the Queen of the Universe, the story kicks into gear when the Queen attempts to have her assassinated. Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne and Gugu Mbatha-Raw also star in the film, which has already debuted a number of trailers. Check out the latest one after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Mila Kunis’ character Jupiter Jones may clean toilets for a living, but she also poses a threat to the reign of the Queen of the Universe thanks to her perfect genetic makeup in the Wachowskis’ latest sci-fi spectacle Jupiter Ascending. Fortunately she has a protector in the form of a glassy-eyed, part-albino/part-wolf Caine (Channing Tatum).
In Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis’ latest futuristic sci-fi actioner, Channing Tatum plays a half-wolf, half-albino warrior because of course he does. Tatum’s character, Caine, is tasked with protecting Jupiter, an astrologically and genetically fated janitor played by Mila Kunis. This marks the Wachowskis’ first fully original screenplay since 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions, following 2008’s Speed Racer and 2012’s Cloud Atlas. Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the film last month, but this image offers another glimpse of Tatum’s bleached hair and the prosthetics he has donned for the role.
Jupiter Ascending is currently slated to hit theaters on July 18.
Lana and Andy Wachowski’s next film Jupiter Ascending has set a release date of July 25, 2014. Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, and Sean Bean have all been cast in the film.
Although no official plot details have been released, the film reportedly is about a time in the future where humans are one of the least evolved species. Vulture reported last year that Kunis would be playing a Russian immigrant who is dangerous to those in power because she has “genetic makeup” matching the queen’s and Tatum would play her bounty-hunter turned lover.
But for all we know, the film could be like the Wachowskis’ last joint, Cloud Atlas, and just be about everything.
