The sci-fi action movie stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis

The trailer for the Wachowskis' latest film, Jupiter Ascending, has just appeared online, with Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis providing the human element in an effects-laden extravaganza.

Jupiter Ascending is due for release on Fri 25 Jul 2014.
