Jupiter Ascending (2015)
Eddie Redmayne: Balem Abrasax
Balem Abrasax : My mother made me understand that every human society is a pyramid and that some lives will always matter more than others. It is better to accept this than to pretend it isn't true.
Balem Abrasax : [sitting on his throne with his back to Jupiter] You should have stayed dead.
Jupiter Jones : [angrily] I am not your mother.
Balem Abrasax : [scoffing] No, my mother never cleaned a toilet in her life.
Jupiter Jones : Maybe that was her problem.
Balem Abrasax : My mother... My mother taught me what was necessary to rule in this universe.
Jupiter Jones : By killing people?
Balem Abrasax : [throws up his hands] *I create life*! And I destroy it. Life in an act of consumption, Jupiter. To live is to consume. Now, the human beings on your planet are merely a resource waiting to be converted into capital. And this entire enterprise is just a small part in a vast and beautiful machine defined by evolution, designed to a single purpose... To create profit.
Balem Abrasax : Understand this, Mr. Night. I will harvest that planet tomorrow... before I let her take it from me.
Balem Abrasax : Slow.
[play back of the scene in the operating room where Caine meets Jupiter slows as Balem moves around in it]
Balem Abrasax : There... you... are...
[he stoops down to look at Jupiter as she is floating in the operating room]
Balem Abrasax : You know there are moments when I actually miss you. Because no one understands this universe like you did. No one understands me...
[his voice breaks]
Balem Abrasax : ...like you did.
Balem Abrasax : [to Titus on the recently-harvested planet of Zalintyre] The House of Abrasax continues to thrive, despite the squandering of your inheritance, brother.
Balem Abrasax : Bring her to me... *Now*!
