Channing Tatum has been hot property over the last few years thanks to 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike, but his new role is one of the biggest yet – in the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending, an intergalactic tale of romance and adventure with Mila Kunis and Eddie Redmayne.
And although the latest trailer for the sci-fi epic released this week gives us more action and context, it also provides us with some romance, as we see Mila’s titular character Jupiter plant a kiss on Channing’s assassin love interest.

Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum in Jupiter Ascending
Jupiter Ascending is the Wachowski’s first original film since The Matrix, and follows Mila’s Jupiter, an ordinary human girl living on Earth who discovers she is actually the rightful Queen of the Universe.
Channing plays Caine, a genetically-engineered half-wolf, half-man assassin who is tasked with saving Jupiter’s life, while British actor Eddie goes insanely evil as Balem the King, current ruler of Earth.
Mila recently announced her engagement to Ashton Kutcher when she stepped out with a huge diamond sparkler on her ring finger while shopping with her mother in Hollywood.
Only a few weeks later it was confirmed that Mila was also pregnant.
The long time friends and former That 70s Show co-stars have been dating since 2012.
Channing has also been busy sending a video to a stage four cancer patient who had getting a kiss from the Hollywood actor at the top of her bucket list.
The Step Up actor put together the minute-long video for Alisa Finley, an 18-year-old who has been diagnosed with a stage four brain tumour, that included footage of his wife Jenna and himself singing Pharrell William’s Happy.
"Hey Alisa, what’s going on? It’s Channing, hi!" the actor said as he started his video.
Channing continued with: "Just wanted to do a little vid and say what’s up! We were at the Oscars the other night and Pharrell came on and we can’t ever be not dancing and happy when that song Happy comes on so we made a little ditty, a little song for you, love you mama, just know that you’re loved and we’re giving you a big old kiss from over here."
The 33-year-old then blew Alisa a kiss before the video cut to Channing with his wife Jenna at the Oscars, where he videoed himself speaking to Alisa: "Hello my love, just here and wanted to give you a big old kiss, and say we love you and, I guess we’re gonna go out along and be happy tonight."
Alisa, whose bucket list can be found on the Facebook page set up for the teen, Alisa’s Butterflies, has amended her bucket list to add "almost done", next to "1. Kiss Channing Tatum".
