If you listen to our podcast (and you really should, because nerds talking about movies are always entertaining, especially when it’s us), you already know about my enthusiasm for Jupiter Ascending, the new film from the Wachowskis. If you don’t listen to the podcast, here’s a quick recap: at the beginning of the year, I listed Jupiter Ascending as one of my most anticipated films of 2014 because it looks totally batshit insane. Channing Tatum is a kung fu space elf bounty hunter with rocket boots who works for Sean Bean – and you just know he’s going to die. Mila Kunis is the queen of the universe, and the vibrating guy from Les Miserables is going to send an army of gargoyles and Gundam Wings to kill her. Because it looks so incredibly wacky, I started a countdown to the film’s July release date. But then the film got delayed until early next year, and the marketing disappeared for a few months. And now you’re up to speed – we have a new trailer! And it has CROP CIRCLES IN IT. I just can’t wait to see this. Even if it’s a trainwreck, it’s going to be a glorious one. The worst-case scenario here is that the film turns out to be boring. But again, it has Channing Tatum in rocket boots. I don’t think boredom is even an option.
Jupiter Ascending comes out February 6, 2015.
