'Jupiter Ascending' visual effects wizard talks film's aesthetic

In “Jupiter Ascending,” Andy and Lana Wachowski (“The Matrix” trilogy, “Cloud Atlas”) present another wildly original sci-fi tale, this time about Chicago house cleaner Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who learns from an alien protector, Caine (Channing Tatum in guyliner), that she’s actually the queen of the universe with the rights to rule over Earth. Dan Glass, the movie’s visual effects supervisor who oversaw some 2,050 shots, recently described the aesthetic approach to the outre adventure, which arrives in theaters Feb. 6.
