From Stripper to Soldier: Here’s Channing Tatum in the First ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Trailer

The first original project from Andy and Lana Wachowski since the Matrix trilogy, it’s no wonder that Jupiter Ascending is hotly anticipated. Then, throw Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in this thing and it’s a wonder anyone can wait all the way until July.

Tatum plays some sort of elvish soldier who saves Mila Kunis from execution. Kunis, you see, threatens the Queen of the Universe’s rule because of her perfect genetic makeup or something. Eddie Redmayne is hanging around too, telling us that “some lives will always matter more than others.”

One thing that’s clear: the Wachowski siblings are returning to their dystopian roots. Let’s just hope this one isn’t spun into an unnecessary trilogy as well.
