New Jupiter Ascending Trailer Finally Merges Scifi Spectacle With Story

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The early trailers for the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending have always looked impressive, but they seemed like they wanted to bludgeon people into theaters by assaulting them with an overabundance of chaotic scifi/CG action. But this third trailer is the first one to makes me want to see the movie.

Of course, we've known the plot details of the movie for a while — Mila Kunis is the reincarnation of the queen of the galaxy, the evil Eddie Redmayne wants to keep her from inheriting the space throne and Earth — but the trailer lays it out cleanly and efficiently, from the secret origin of humanity on Earth to why and how Mila somehow doesn't know she's space royalty, to why her emergence puts the Earth in danger. But it also has no lack of amazing visuals, including elf-eared Channing Tatum fighting a winged lizard alien.

The chaotic madness of the early trailers had me assuming Jupiter Ascending was also going to be a bit of a mess, but this new trailer has made it much easier to wrap my head around. Hopefully it will do the same for the larger populace, or the Wachowskis will have made yet another epic, gorgeous scifi film that no one seems to want to see.
