Channing Tatum in "Jupiter Ascending"

A first trailer has arrived for the Wachowskis' fantastical "Jupiter Ascending," starring Channing Tatum, with blond hair and elf ears, and Mila Kunis as the title role, a woman invaluable to the cosmos, who Tatum is fated to protect. Watch below.

Here's the official synopsis:

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that 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 (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.  

This is the follow-up to the Wachowskis' 2012 big-screen adaptation of "Cloud Atlas," which connected with some critics (TOH! liked it), but not with audiences, disappointing at the domestic box office.

"Jupiter Ascending" also stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith. It hits theaters July 25, 2014.
