Opening on July 25, 2014, JUPITER ASCENDING is about:

A Russian immigrant (Kunis) who possesses the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule. A bounty hunter (Tatum) is dispatched to kill the immigrant, but instead ends up falling in love with her.
