From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, Jupiter Ascending is a science fiction epic adventure that follows the downtrodden Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis -- Black Swan), who's destined for greatness. When a genetically engineered ex-military hunter Caine (Channing Tatum -- Magic Mike) tracks her down, she starts to glimpse the fate waiting for her all along -- her genetic signature marking her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix films, Cloud Atlas) take us on another visionary journey into the unknown. Also starring Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables) and Douglas Booth (Noah), this sci-fi thrill-ride will expand your universe. The battle for our world begins with her.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Pleasing to the eye but narratively befuddled, Jupiter Ascending delivers another visually thrilling misfire from the Wachowskis.

Laughably bad but slick-looking sci-fi epic.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jupiter Ascending is a cringe-worthy sci-fi action epic from the Wachowski siblings, who also made The Matrix trilogy and Cloud Atlas. Though it's an original story, it has the look and feel of many adaptations based on YA sci-fi/fantasy books. Expect lots of fast-paced, fantasy-style fighting, with laser guns and swooping through the air, as well as some regular shooting, fighting, and a few bloody wounds. There's some brief partial nudity (a female bottom and a male torso) and some sex-tangential issues, such as a woman thinking of selling her eggs and a woman giving birth. Both men and women are shown as sexual or physical objects. Language includes several uses of "s--t," plus "goddamn" and "bitch." Beer is consumed in a background way during a family meal.
