Mila Kunis is Jupiter Jones in Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Spanning distances from the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, the gorgeously-designed film also features Sean Bean (Equilibrium), Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Douglas Booth (Noah), Doona Bae (Cloud Atlas) and James D’Arcy (W.E.).

The PG-13-rated film proved to be a dud with critics and audiences alike, bringing in a tepid $50 million at the domestic box office. It fared better in the worldwide marketplace, earning some $135 million internationally. Figures…

All versions of the film include a digital version of the movie in Digital HD with UltraViolet
