Jupiter Ascending (2015)
Tuppence Middleton: Kalique Abrasax
Kalique Abrasax : [steps out of her rejuvenation pool] Each of us has a code for our optimal physical condition. The problem is our genes have an expiration date which is transferred to our cells. A long time ago, someone figured out how to replace deteriorating cells with new ones. Today, it's as easy as changing a light bulb.
Jupiter Jones : Where do you get these light bulbs?
Kalique Abrasax : You grow them.
Jupiter Jones : Like clones?
Kalique Abrasax : No. Clones lack genetic plasticity. Several million years ago, a gene plague caused by cloning, nearly annihilated the entire human race.
Jupiter Jones : I was told that the House of Abrasax seeded the Earth. Is that where you get it?
Kalique Abrasax : Your earth is a very small part of a very large industry... Feel my skin.
Jupiter Jones : [touches Kalique's hand] Oh, wow.
Kalique Abrasax : In your world, people are used to fighting for resources... like oil, or minerals, or land. But when you have access to the vastness of space, you realize there's only one resource worth fighting over... even killing for: More time. Time is the single most precious commodity in the universe.
