Jupiter Ascending is a Big Science-Fiction Space Opera Filled with Spectacle

Gorgeously rendered alien space ships and vistas, ambitious costumes, brimming over with original action and a fusion of ideas drawn from a wide variety of genres.

Jupiter Jones was born on an auspicious starry night that indicated she was destined for great things. Her genetic signature marking her next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. Not that she would have any inkling of her destiny cleaning toilets and enduring a streak of bad luck. To make things worse she bears the exact same genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe who is not about to relinquish her control so easily. Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, is sent to  eliminate her. Fate though is not without it’s surprises and Caine ends up protecting her.

The movie is directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski who 15 years ago directed The Matrix. The movie stars Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Mila taking on the role of the intergalactic ‘Snow White’ and ruler of the cosmos to be and Tatum as the hunter sent to track her down and eliminate her.

In this video Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis talk about how physically demanding their roles were.
