The first trailer for the Wachowskis brothers’, errrr ummm, brother and sister’s, next film has dropped. From the creators of the Matrix Trilogy and Cloud Atlas comes Jupiter Ascending, a tale about an interstellar soldier (Caine) sent to murder an Earthling (Jupiter) only to find out that her DNA could impact the future of the universe.
It’s trippy. It’s operatic. It’s visually stunning. Could this be the next The Fifth Element, a film by Luc Besson that possesses similar traits? From the trailer it certainly seems possible, but while The Fifth Element was fairly light and didn’t take itself too seriously, Jupiter Ascending looks to be keeping to the dramatic straight and narrow.
Jupiter Ascending is slated for a July 25, 2014 release.
