The rabbit hole just keeps going deeper and deeper for the Wachowskis’ new sci-fi flick Jupiter Ascending, and here are a ton of pics to show off that bizarre alien world.
The film, which has suffered some hefty delays and rumored retooling on the way to its Feb. 6 opening date, looks absolutely insane. Sure, the trailers looked crazy, but seeing these alien landscapes and strange characters frozen in still pics for further scrutiny just brings up more questions than answers.
Genre legend Sean Bean (Game of Thrones) has a good presence here, along with leading stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. But the effects work is what really steals the show here. It looks like a more ambitious version of Chronicles of Riddick, in a way, but way more out-there, with some in-freaking-sane alien races on display. Plus, those ears. My goodness, those ears.
Here’s the official synopsis to try and put it all in perspective:
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.
