QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A lowly Chicago maid who hates her life discovers that she's the genetically reincarnated matriarch of a royal family that owns most of the universe and now wants her dead.
PLOT:
Jupiter Jones (MILA KUNIS) is a Russian immigrant who was brought to America as an infant and now works as a maid with her mother and other family members. She hates her life, but soon has a change of heart when extraterrestrial aliens attempt to kill her. They nearly succeed, but Jupiter is saved by half-wolf, half-man Caine Wise (CHANNING TATUM), a so-called skyjacker who's been sent by a universal royal, Titus (DOUGLAS BOOTH), to find and retrieve her.

It seems that she's the genetically reincarnated matriarch of a royal family that owns most of the universe, and Titus and his siblings, Balem (EDDIE REDMAYNE) and Kalique (TUPPENCE MIDDLETON) are quite interested in Jupiter, what with their mother having recently perished. In short, they don't want her messing with their plans that involve a myriad of planets they separately own, including Earth. When Caine figures that out, he seeks out the help of his former military commander, Stinger (SEAN BEAN), with whom he had a falling out in the past.

As Jupiter tries to soak all of this in, Caine does what he can to protect her from the others and help her take her rightful place on the royal thrown, overseeing the universe and its inhabitants.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of Kunis, Tatum or the directorial works of the Wachowskis (who made "The Matrix" movies), they might be interested. That also holds true for those who might be drawn to the sci-fi spectacle shown in the ads.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some violence, sequences of sci-fi action, some suggestive content and partial nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
