The crew created a rig of six cameras, called the Panocam, which was mounted on a helicopter and covered nearly 180 degrees of the action. During post production, the directors could combine the overlapped filmed footage, essentially creating a camera that could swing around the action independently of the helicopter's actual flying path.
The chase sequence in Chicago was codenamed "Fifty-Two Part" by the film's crew. It was the longest sequence in the script and involving some of the film's most difficult stunts. To complete it, Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum had to film every day for six months.
Channing Tatum had to wear a mouthpiece to change the shape of his lower jaw to realistically portray a part-canine character. This unfortunately prevented him from closing his mouth and gave him trouble when he had to talk.
The film was originally slated for release for July 18, 2014, but the studio delayed the film's release and pushed it back six and a half months to give the production more time in the post-production process.

When Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is captured and taken onto a spaceship in the middle of a corn field, as soon as the spaceship takes off you can see a commonly known crop circle is left in the middle of the field. The crop circle is a common shape seen in hoaxes before and it happens to be the exact shape of the ship Jupiter is taken onto.
Jupiter Jones' family is Russian. Mila Kunis was born and spent the first few years of her life in the Ukraine which, at the time, was part of the Soviet Union. Not long after her family emigrated to the U.S., the USSR collapsed and the Ukraine became an independent country.
