Jupiter Ascending Blu-Ray Gets Detailed and Dated

While I didn’t “love” Jupiter Ascending as much as I wanted to, I didn’t hate the film either.  It has a lot of great elements behind it, with impressive visuals and characters you want to know more about.  While I wish it had been paced differently, I don’t exactly get all the hatred the movie gets either.  I thought it was still a lot of fun, and if you skipped out on it, I think it’s worth watching when it hits blu-ray on June 2.  Check out the features coming on the disc when it lands:
