Jupiter Ascending is an upcoming science fiction film written, produced and directed by The Wachowskis. Set in the distant future, the film centers on a lowly janitor (Mila Kunis) who learns that she has a great genetic destiny.
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is an unlucky Russian immigrant who cleans toilets for a living. She encounters Caine (Channing Tatum), an interplanetary warrior whom the Queen of the Universe sent to kill Jupiter. Caine tells Jupiter that the stars were pointing to an extraordinary event on the night she was born, and that her DNA could mark her as the universe's next leader.

The film is a co-production between Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures. Roberto Malerba and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers. Principal photography commenced at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden on April 2, 2013. Filming also took place at Ely Cathedral in England. The production remained in the London studio through June, then moved to various location in Chicago, Illinois throughout late July and August. This is cinematographer John Toll's second feature film he is shooting digitally, utilizing Arri Alexas and Codex Recorders, after Iron Man 3, in part due to the visual effects element.
The film's music will be composed by Michael Giacchino, who also scored the Wachowskis' 2008 film Speed Racer. On June 10, Giacchino tweeted that Ludwig Wicki was conducting the film's score at Abbey Road Studios in London. In August, Giacchino stated: "We're actually recording all the music first, before they're even done shooting. It's been done sort of backwards, and it's much more freeing doing that way. I'm not locked down to any specific timings and what the film is doing. I can do whatever I want. It opens up a lot more possibilities."
The film is set to be released on July 25, 2014.
