Ok. Maybe it doesn’t happen to everyone (so I might have had a really bad acid reaction,) but it certainly has happened to our new heroine in the Wachowskis’ film Jupiter Ascending. The titular character, who is literally rising from the ashes to assume her position as Queen, is played by Mila Kunis. Pursued by Redmayne with a pout of many villains, the danger is real and amazing.
The sweeping special effects and the glorious worlds created by the Wachowskis’ looks completely surreally brilliant. The action packed into these small trailers is as gripping despite having the most bizarrely put together group of actors. Kunis has a lot to prove as the hero here, breaking away from her image before. Tatum is always on the rise, choosing a stream of different movies to counteract his blockbuster image. It’s an exhilarating ride already but all eyes are on Jupiter Ascending to be the science fiction movie event of the summer, having to compete with the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy for audience.
Could the film rise to reclaim it’s throne?
