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.Written by

Jupiter's father in St. Petersburg has a brass-bound telescope, an expensive antique with poor optics that would not be used by a serious amateur astronomer. These scenes must take place in the 1990s,, when St. Petersburg was still recovering from the Siege of Leningrad, the longest, most destructive, and most lethal siege in modern history. There were decades of severe economic depression with food rationing, infrastructure failures, and multiple families lived together in 'kommunalkas' ('communal apartments') that would at most house a single family in much of the rest of the world. Luxury items like modern telescopes would have been completely unobtainable. Even antique telescopes with poor optics would have been seen as decadent and would likely have been traded outright to benefit one's family or, as in the film, stolen by others. See more »
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.

I highly recommend this movie if you like to have a headache.
Not because it is complex, but because nothing makes sense.
The worlds they introduce have more in common with Harry Potter than SciFi.
Even the music reminds me of it.
There were 4 first acts, 3 second acts and 2(?) three acts? The prolong is ridiculous and the epilogue is... extremely lame.
I feel like this movie would be a really cool trilogy. But sadly is is one giant incomprehensible product.
