HQ scans of Total Film magazine in our gallery. Read their exclusive interview with the cast and producers of Jupiter Ascending below. Warning: Spoiler alerts!
Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a lowly housecleaner on Earth (Chicago, to be exact) who learns she possesses the genetic legacy to become the queen of the universe when the matriarch of the House of Abrasax, ruler of all known life, dies. Scooped up from her menial, meaningless life by Channing Tatum’s genetically engineered ex-military hunter Caine, she sets about claiming her inheritance…but Abrasax siblings Balem, Kalique and Titus (Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton and Douglas Booth) aren’t about to let the crown slip from their grubby fingers without an almighty fight involving spaceships, pounded-to-powder architecture and, er, rollerblades (more of which later).
“Jupiter’s not a superhero, she’s your average, everyday girl who, due to her DNA, inherits a power,” explains a kohl-eyed Kunis, a self-confessed Star Trek nut who nabbed the part after Natalie Portman was originally linked with it. Sat next to Channing Tatum on a white leather sofa in a spacious LA studio, she’s dressed in a smart black trousers, a sheer cream top and 6inch heels, her sharp outfit not matched by her tongue whatever some journalists might have written in the past. She’s confident, yes, opinionated, sure, and talks in a surprisingly loud voice, but it’s doubtful anyone would mistake her dauntless refusal to be media-trained for an acidic attitude if she was a male star.
“She’s a twentysomething who’s complacent in life,” she continues. “She’s lazy, doesn’t really know what she wants to do. She doesn’t like her job but she’s not trying to do anything else.

Mila and Channing grace the newest issue of Total Film UK (Summer 2014). Headlines are offering massive sci-fi preview and we can’t wait any longer. It has just been announced that Jupiter Ascending is moving to February 6, 2015.
Warner Bros. has pushed back Jupiter Ascending to Feb. 6, 2015 from its original July 18 release date, as the delay was necessary due to the film’s intensive VFX. Here’s the official statement from Dan Fellman (WB president of domestic distribution).
“We’ve been trying like hell to get this finished. But there are over 2,000 visual effects shots in the movie, and it’s just not gonna happen in time.”
Fellman said he had long “been concerned about the production schedule, but we thought we could make it.”
“We got down to the wire and we just had to make a decision. It doesn’t matter what anybody says. Nobody has seen the movie, so everybody is speculating. People said bad things about ‘World War Z’ when that got pushed, and look how that turned out.”
