Jupiter Ascending Page #2

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.

and he was an alternate

on the olympic curling team.

- Solid rsum.

- Yeah, I mean, it sounds totally...

- ...Cinderella, doesn't it?

- Sure.

Then why do I feel like

I'm about to throw up? Oh, God.

I just don't remember Cinderella puking.

Kind of remember her dancing

with a bunch of mice.

Have you ever...

fallen in love, Jupiter?

You know, my mom says that love

is just a fairytale for little girls.

That really, it's all just urges

and obligations.

Wow. That's kind of harsh.

- You want my advice?

- Yes.

If he's really in love with you,

then he'll understand

that you're just overwhelmed and...

and you need a little time.

- That makes sense.

- Yeah.

Okay, what do I wear now?

Something that reminds him

of what he is waiting for.

Like that Red McQueen,

or this Little Ricci.

Katherine? Everything all right?

Yeah, no, no. We're good.

I'll be down in a sec.

Picked up a referral. A townhouse.

But it has to be Wednesday.

- Wednesday's full. Three houses.

- So do four.

English, please.

We use English in this house.

Use whatever you like.

You sound like Stalin to me.

Stalin?! I'm Stalin?

You don't want the money.

I will give it to... Gleb's crew.

Good. Thank you.

- We'll take it.

- Big surprise.

Hey, cousin, speaking of money,

I was wondering if...

Oh, let me guess. Another advance.

For what this time? Shoes? A new phone?

I'll earn it back.

No, you mean you'll waste it

trying to make yourself feel better

by buying something you don't need.

So, what, instead of feeling better,

I should save my money and feel worse?


Now, you're a smart girl, Jupiter.

I admit it's none of my business,

but that's probably the reason

you are not married.

Men do not like smart women.

You keep talking about

my daughter like that,

I will ram that latke so far up your ass,

you won't crap for a week.


Hey! Hey!

You swore, no fighting at dinner.

Jupiter, what is the money for?

No, you're right.

It's nothing I need.

Hey, what was that about? You're not

having second thoughts, are you?

What if I am?


These people, they're counting on you.

Have you even looked at this thing?

Why do they have to use words

like "harvesting"? It's just creepy.

Why would you read this?

You heard what the doctor said.

It's not a big deal.

You go in, cash comes out.

This money, I'm telling you,

I have real plans, serious plans.

I believe this money's

gonna mean something...

possibly life-changing for both of us.



- You will not regret this.

- All right.

- I promise. I promise!

- All right, all right.

All right. Oh, wait, I have a question.

Why is it that you get ten grand and
