Kornel Mundruczo, the acclaimed Hungarian director of the Cannes-winning canine parable "White God," is back with a new arthouse film and it's putting a unique spin on the superhuman genre.

"Jupiter's Moon" stars Hungarian theater actor Zsombor Jeger as a young Serbian refugee who is shot while trying to cross the Hungarian border. While being treated by an opportunistic doctor (played by Georgian actor Merab Ninidze) at a refugee camp, the young immigrant is shocked to discover that he has developed a superhuman ability: He can levitate like some kind of superhero -- or, in this case, more like a spiritual angel.

The film, which premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival, is getting a theatrical release in the U.K. on January 5th with a VOD and DVD release to follow on February 26th.

As of yet, there's no official U.S. release date for "Jupiter's Moon," but you can check out the newly-released international trailer, above.

The director of the critically acclaimed White God employs his uniquely talented eye to create this riveting Palme d'Or nominated supernatural thriller. Adorned with heart-pounding car chases and sensational gunfights that are complemented by beautifully fluid and kinetic camerawork, Kornel Mundruczo brings spectacle that rivals any Hollywood production to tell a timely European story.

A young refugee called Aryan is shot while illegally trying to cross the Hungarian border to escape his war-torn home. While tending him back to health, a doctor at a refugee camp discovers that Aryan has gained an extraordinary talent -- he can levitate at will. But the doctor has his own predicament that he needs to escape from and offers to smuggle Aryan out of the camp if, in return, he helps him make some money by using his new miraculous gift.

With Jupiter's Moon, Mundruczo marks himself as one his generation’s most visionary directors by touching on eternally mythic themes and contemporary political issues alike with visually mind-bending aplomb.
