You can read Jupiter Ascending's official synopsis below or you could just know this: Channing Tatum plays a half-wolf, half-human hero with questionable pigment who shows Mila Kunis that she's more than someone who just cleans toilets. I can't wait for this movie! It's going to be bonkers, but that's precisely its appeal. Here's hoping the Wachowskis can keep the momentum going from Cloud Atlas to create something that's visually stunning, ambitious, and moving. To prepare you for the trailer for today (out at 4:30 PM PST), here are two new posters that show Tatum and Kunis as Divergent-styled heroes. Take a look:

Here's [Jupiter Ascending](movie:267863) synopsis:
From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, Jupiter Ascending was conceived and written by the Wachowskis, who are also directing. Award-winning producer Grant Hill, with whom the writer/directors have collaborated since “The Matrix” Trilogy, is producing the film together with the Wachowskis. Roberto Malerba and Bruce Berman are serving as executive producers.
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
