Channing Tatum in Jupiter Ascending

HBO, Monday, May 30, 5:45 p.m.

Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a Russian immigrant housekeeper who is actually the genetic reincarnation of one of the richest people in the universe, a queen thousands of years old who owned multitudes of planets. After the queen’s death, her children Balem (Eddie Redmayne), Titus (Douglas Booth), and Kalique (Tuppence Middleton) have squabbled over her fortune (and the sinister way they make it), and when they discover that she has reappeared as a clueless Earthling, they all send bounty hunters to get her – or kill her. One of those is Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), a part-wolf, part-human super-soldier with a problematic past. As goofy as Redmayne is, Tatum and Kunis are delights, taking a cue from their directors and taking neither themselves nor the film seriously. But they still serve up action and romance, grounding the film in a humanity needed as a counterpoint to so many computer-generated effects.
