During this week's Comic-Con in San Diego, Warner Brothers unveiled a new teaser clip for their upcoming sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending that's funnier, more sharply edited, and more laden with spectacular special effects than the official trailer that's been earlier uploaded by the studio to Youtube and other social media.
The new "Jupiter Ascending Comic-Con footage sealed the deal: this movie rocks," proclaims blog site io9. "...we're pretty much sold on the humor, the incredibly creative action, and yes, the 'chosen one' storyline...The action scenes look as new and as beautiful as The Matrix did when I first watched it. So. Yeah, looking good," the site adds.
Originally scheduled for theater screening on July 18 this year, the movie's release date was moved back to February 6, 2015. According to Hollywood Reporter's insider sources, the schedule reset was made because the film still needed more special effects work.
Jupiter Ascending is written, produced and directed by The Wachowskis, the brother-and-sister team of Andy and Lana Wachowski of The Matrix trilogy and V for Vendetta fame. The forthcoming sci-fi flick tells the story of Jupiter Jones (played by Mila Kunis), a lowly, unlucky Chicago cleaning lady who learns that she's been pre-destined to become Queen of the Universe. Kunis, said Channing Tatum, the movie's sole representative in the panel discussion, cannot make it to Comic-Con because "she's super pregnant."
Tatum, who in the film plays 'Caine Wise,' a genetically modified alien warrior who's been tasked to keep Jupiter safe, told the excited Comic-Con crowd, that the Wachowskis who also did not make it to the convention because they're still busy finishing their first Netflix TV series (Sense8) are "absolutely out of their minds. We really try to do something different, something you've never seen before. It's not a book or a comic, so we tried to push it." Whatever it is, that brief teaser presentation just made
