Jupiter Ascending

Feb. 6

This is not the Wachowski’s first go around at creating a Sci-Fi film. The siblings have written, directed and produced several other films such as “The Matrix” trilogy, “V for Vendetta” and “Cloud Atlas.” The story is about Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), an ordinary Earthling, who discovers that she is alien royalty through the help of Caine Wise (Channing Tatum). Wise is an intergalactic cyborg-warrior whose job it is to escort the princess and save Earth and its inhabitants from becoming subjects of a malevolent alien experiment. However absurd the storyline may sound, the directorial-duo has shown their filmic prowess through their previous work and have been hailed as serial fiction tycoons.

Seventh Son

Feb. 6

This fantasy/epic is based upon Joseph Delaney’s young-adult novel, “The Spook’s Apprentice.” The plot is about the Spook (Jeff Bridges) who is training the seventh son, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to go to battle against the wicked witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) who is planning an all-out, supernatural war on the human race. Mother Malkin recently escaped prison and is preparing a nefarious revenge, and the Spook only has limited time to train his apprentice, Tom Ward, to fight against the evil despot and save all of humankind.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Feb. 13

From the same director of films such as “Kick-Ass” and “X-Men: First Class,” Mathew Vaughn takes another Action-Adventure and Comedy film. The story is another Master-Apprentice centered story. The film stars Colin Firth as Harry Hart, a master of espionage who takes on a protégé, played by Taron Egerton. Other big names who appear in the film are Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson. The film has done exceptionally well and has received excellent critical reviews prior to its opening.
