Trailer Watch: Jupiter Ascending teaser trailer

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?

The film opens July 25, 2014.

Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:

Jupiter Jones (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 toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (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.

Trailer Watch: Alfonso Cuáron’s Gravity theatrical trailer

We got three intense single-take teaser trailers for Alfonso Cuáron’s Gravity back in July, and now, finally, we have a full, theatrical trailer. As I had hoped/expected, it shows us some glimpses of what else is to come — hints that we have no idea what this story is really about. And I love it.

Gravity hits theaters on October 4th.

Trailer Watch: And a third single-take Gravity trailer

This was up on Saturday, I think, but I’m a little behind on… well, everything. But anyway, following “Detached” and “Drifting,” is a third single-take clip/trailer from Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, called “I’ve Got You.”

Trailer Watch: Japanese Space Pirate Captain Harlock trailer

Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina director Shinji Aramaki is back with a CG-animated adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock. This third trailer (all in Japanese, so… hopefully you either speak it, or you’re familiar enough with the anime that you have some idea of what’s going on). I never did, and my Japanese is basically non-existent, so I’m totally lost… but it sure looks pretty.

The film is out in Japan this September, but no signs of an American release at this time. It’s all but guaranteed to make it here on video, eventually, though, so if you’re a fan, just hang in there.

If you really want to spoil it for yourself, there’s about twelve minutes of footage online here.
