Love 'em or hate 'em, the Wachowskis are back with an original sci-fi epic starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending:

"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 other people's houses 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."
