The film Jupiter Ascending was released on February 5, 2015. Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) works with her mother and aunt cleaning houses. Through some bizarre circumstances, she learns that she is an heiress to an interplanetary fortune. One of the things she owns is the planet Earth. A guardian (Channing Tatum) is sent to bring her to another heir (Douglas Booth). Things get a bit complicated after that.
The storyline is decent as was the acting. I have a feeling that Mila Kunis was signed up because of her Russian background. The character she plays is Russian. There was plenty of action and some good CGI. I must say that this felt more like a fantasy film than a science fiction film. Eddie Redmayne (from Fantastic Beasts) played the main villain while Sean Bean appeared as Stinger, a former comrade of Tatum’s character.
