Unknown to Earth’s residents, life on Earth and countless other planets has been seeded by families of alien royalty for the purpose of harvesting the evolved living creatures once they reach a “Darwinian state of perfection” to produce a type of youth serum that allows them to live forever. When the matriarch of the House of Abrasax, the most powerful of the alien dynasties, dies; her children Balem, Kalique, and Titus are at war over the inheritance. Eventually a new heir comes to their attention: Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), Jupiter Jones 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 toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military interplanetary warrior, 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 royalty and next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. Meanwhile, Caine has to protect her from Balem, who put a bounty on her head and would rather harvest Earth than lose it to Jones. Jupiter Ascending is a space opera film written, produced, and directed by The Wachowskis. It marks their first return to original screenplays in the science fiction genre since The Matrix trilogy. Supporting cast member Douglas Booth has described the film’s universe as a cross between The Matrix and Star Wars. The film is scheduled to be released on February 6.
