The Wachowskis haven't exactly been hit-makers since Neo destroyed the Matrix, but as their box office has dwindled the budgets haven't come down. Their films remain really expensive risks for any studio, especially after the whole Cloud Atlas debacle, and if Jupiter Ascending turns out to be a failure who knows what the siblings will do next.
A new trailer for Jupiter Ascending has been released, along with a couple of character posters featuring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. The intergalactic fable tells the story of a lowly janitor who has the same genetic line as the queen of the galaxy, maker her a threat to the throne. Tatum plays the bounty hunter sent to kill her, but he decides to save her instead. It sounds a lot like Snow White and the Huntsman, and the Wachowskis would probably be happy if this film made half as much money.
Jupiter Ascending blasts off on July 25th.
