FILM PREVIEW: JUPITER ASCENDING (12A)SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TOMORROW
This troubled blockbuster production finally makes it to the big-screen – after being moved from its Summer 2014 slot for a February bow with much less fanfare.
There’s no denying the talent at hand, as this sci-fi adventure from the team behind the Matrix trilogy tells the story of Mila Kunis’ (Ted) Jupiter Jones – an ordinary Chicago girl with a cleaning job that always predicted herself for great things.
But she didn’t expect that to take her to the outer reaches of the galaxy, when an engineered ex-military hunter (Channing Tatum) tracks her down – and tells her she is next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
British stars come in the form of Oscar-nominated The Theory of Everything actor Eddie Redmayne – who is the main antagonist of the piece as a member of Alien royalty – and Sean Bean, who stars as a ‘Han Solo-esque’ character.
Fingers-crossed the extra-time to fine tune the film has paid off...
