It doesn’t matter what you do, it matters what you are. It also matters that you watch the new trailer for Jupiter Ascending, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski, and starring Mila Kunis as an average woman who finds out she’s the royal heir of Earth.
Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a janitor with the same genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe. Early in the trailer, she’s unconscious in an operating room, with doctors wondering if she’s “the one.” When they determine that she is, indeed, “the one,” one doctor barks a stunning order: “Good. Kill her.”
Before they can act, in comes Channing Tatum, with bleach-blond hair and pointed ears; he plays Caine, a genetically-modified mercenary with wolf and human DNA. He rescues Jupiter and informs her that there are forces at work who want her dead.
“You’ve stumbled into the middle of a war with one of the most powerful dynasties in the universe,” he warns her.
