'Jupiter Ascending' Trailer Features Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in Wachowski Siblings' Next Movie

Oh boy, another movie from the Wachowski siblings filled with pseudo-intellectual philosophies and way too much CGI. If you loved the second two Matrix movies, Speed Racer or Cloud Atlas, the duo's next movie — Jupiter Ascending — is probably exactly what you've been waiting for. I'll let the movie's official synopsis explain things:

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in "Jupiter Ascending," an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. 
Jupiter Jones (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 other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (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. 
From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, "Jupiter Ascending" is written and directed by the Wachowskis. Award-winning producer Grant Hill, with whom they have collaborated since "The Matrix" Trilogy, is producing, together with Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski. Roberto Malerba and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.

Back in 1999, The Matrix was revolutionary (not to be confused with Matrix Revolutions, which was anything but revolutionary). Lana and Andy Wachowski merged several genres of storytelling together, pushing the boundaries of CGI at the same time. Unfortunately, since then the siblings have fallen in love with their own cult of ideas. Why worry about telling an actual story when you can script up some philosophical mumbo jumbo?

Jupiter Ascending hits theaters on July 25, 2014. It stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne.
