Jupiter Ascending is a 2015 space opera film written and directed by the Wachowskis. Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, and Douglas Booth, the film is centered on Jupiter Jones (Kunis), an ordinary cleaning woman, and Caine Wise (Tatum), an interplanetary warrior who informs Jones that her destiny extends beyond Earth. Supporting cast member Douglas Booth has described the film’s fictional universe as a cross between The Matrix and Star Wars, while Kunis identified indulgence and consumerism as its underlying themes.
The film was produced by Grant Hill and the Wachowskis, making Jupiter Ascending Hill’s seventh collaboration with the Wachowskis as producer or executive producer. Several more longstanding Wachowski collaborators since the creation of the Matrix films have contributed to the picture, including production designer Hugh Bateup, visual effects supervisor Dan Glass, visual effects designer John Gaeta, standby propman Alex Boswell, supervising sound editor Dane Davis and costume designer Kym Barrett. Other notable past collaborators include Speed Racer composer Michael Giacchino, Cloud Atlas director of photography John Toll along with its editor Alexander Berner and hair and make-up designer Jeremy Woodhead, who worked on both.
The film received a mixed critical reception upon release, but had a positive response from female science fiction fans who appreciated the film’s campiness and deviation from typical female action film stereotypes.
