'Jupiter Ascending' International Trailer

Courtesy Collider
There is no doubt some huge summer blockbusters on tap for 2014 so the box office competition is pretty stiff. Many of the big films coming out are sequels or a reboot, but we're thinking you might want to add the sci-fi adventure "Jupiter Ascending" to your list. Directed and written by the sibling team of Andy and Lana Wachowski, the film stars Mila Kunis as "Jupiter Jones" who has the earthly job of cleaning houses but is, in fact, marked to be the next Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum (who rocks guyliner quite nicely) is "Caine," an ex-military dude who is hired to hunt Jupiter down. The film also stars Sean Bean, so for the ticket price alone, it'll be worth it to see if Bean's character survives!

After the synopsis, courtesy of Collider, check out the Japanese trailer (after the jump) and let us know if "Jupiter Ascending" will be on your must-see summer blockbuster list. It hits theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 18th.

From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting 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.
