It cost £116 million to make and features a wedding scene from inside Ely Cathedral but futuristic sci fi blockbuster movie Jupiter Ascending received unenthusiastic reviews at an international film festival.
And that’s despite Hollywood stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne and Sean Bean topping the acting credits.
The film opens in the UK on February 6 with Mila Kunis as a princess and Channing Tatum the intergalactic solider given the job of rescuing her.
Both stars visited Ely last summer during filming but visitors and onlookers were kept well away.
Variety magazine reported this week the film had been shown at the Sundance Film festival but some guests choose to leave before the end.

Neville Kiser, a screenwriter, told Variety magazine he thought its screening to a festival normally reserved for highbrow movies was not necessarily the right thing to do.
“I actually liked it,” he said. “But the Sundance context is weird. There were so many people in the audience scoffing and sneering. They are forgetting they are watching a movie targeted primarily to teenage boys.”

Producer Grant Hill “We chose to base [the wedding scene] on Ely Cathedral because it provided us with a sort of scope and reference, obviously being a very significant UK church. The interior design of that church was so subtle but so spectacular in its own right.”
Ely Cathedral has previously been used as a location in The King’s Speech, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and The Other Boleyn Girl.
