Jupiter Ascending

Synopsis: 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 other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine Wise, 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.

Technically speaking, I'm an alien.

And from the perspective

of immigration, an illegal one.

My parents met at the university in Saint

Petersburg where he taught astrophysics

and she taught applied mathematics.

My mother fell in love with him

when she found him almost frozen to death

on the bank of the Neva,

staring at the stars.

Tonight, the sky is completely

full of miracles.

My mother won't talk much

about that time.

But my aunt Nino told me

about my father.

Max...

His name was Maximilian Jones

and he was the son of an English diplomat

who always saw the best in people.

I often wonder if what happened

to my mother and father

changed me from someone

who might have seen the best in people

to someone who always expects

the worst.

How's my Jupiter?

Not a planet. The planet.

The biggest and most beautiful planet

in our solar system.

She is our Jupiter.

Over my dead body

we will name her "Jupiter."

Soon you will discover that your mother can

be extraordinarily unreasonable at times.

But fortunately for us, she remains

susceptible to your father's particular...

charm.

No, oh, no, oh, no!

No, not the telescope, please!

Don't take the telescope, please!

Max! Ma...

In her grief, my mother pushed everyone

except her sister out of her life.

Somewhere in the middle

of the Atlantic,

she pushed me out too.

Pusha. Pusha!

I was born without a country.

Without a home.

Without a father.

But I was born in the house of Leo...

with Jupiter rising at twenty-three

degrees ascendant.

According to my aunt,

this is supposed to mean

that I am destined for great things

and that I will find

the one true love of my life.

- Jupiter.

- Coming!

- You finish the bathroom yet?

- Not yet.

- We still have another house tonight.

- I'll be fast.

Problem with astrology?

Total bullshit.

What was the name of this planet?

Zalintyre, I think.

Have you ever seen a harvest?

Oh, no. Never!

But I've heard they feel no pain.

It's all quite humane,

from what I've been told.

Well, there are marshals

and administrators

to make sure everything's done

according to code, but still...

It can be rather... affecting.

Now you sound like Mother.

Most of them were miserable in their lives

and what we do for them is a mercy.

Balem, thank you for responding.

We were just admiring this ledger

from your latest success.

Well done, brother.

The house of Abrasax

continues to thrive,

despite the squandering

of your inheritance, brother.

I must say, you're looking

a little worse for wear.

Could it be success

does not agree with you?

And you look so well.

Could it be that failure

agrees with you?

You may have inherited Mother's head

for business, but I inherited her heart.

And what does that leave me?

- Her beauty.

- Liar.

- Her humor.

- Her unluckiness in love?

Her fetish for wrinkles.

Well, if this is to be another

of your eulogies, Titus,

I have more important matters to attend.

It was her birthday recently.

You know I get sentimental, and I was going

through some of Mother's old sheave-work

and I came across a description of a planet

she claimed was the most rare

and beautiful estate she ever owned.

- I believe she named it...

- Earth.

...earth. It was part of your inheritance,

wasn't it, brother?

I was quite moved by her description

and I was wondering

if there was any chance

you might be willing to part with it.

Titus, didn't you bother

to look at the sheaves?

That planet is worth more

than all of your estates combined.

Really?

I had no idea.

- Kalique.

- Balem.

Jupiter, get up!
