Jupiter Ascending: new image features bearded Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum leaps from a fire escape in a new image from the Wachowski's forthcoming sci-fi, Jupiter Ascending...

As the sprawling Cloud Atlas proved, the Wachowskis seldom take on obvious projects, and Jupiter Ascending is another one-of-a-kind science fiction flick from the filmmaking duo. This is, after all, a stellar fairytale about a cleaner named Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) who learns that she has the requisite DNA to become the ruler of the universe.

Oh, and Channing Tatum co-stars as a warrior with wolf DNA. You can see him in the new image below, which appears thanks to Entertainment Weekly, and he appears to be leaping from an exploding fire escape while pointing a gun directly at us.

It's an exciting picture, but a cruel, caffeine-deprived part of our brains keeps telling us that Tatum looks a bit like Mugatu out of Zoolander holding a bunch of glowing flowers, and now we can't stop thinking about it.

Such thoughts aside, the film really does look like an intriguing one (as we saw from the first trailer late last year) with some sumptuous production design and flashy action sequences. At the very least, Jupiter Ascending will be one of the year's more unusual effects films, though we'd expect nothing less from the Wachowskis.

Jupiter Ascending, complete with Tatum and his glowing bunch of flowers, is out on the 25th July.
