Jupiter Ascending revolves around a royal family business/corporation/empire. Abrasax Industries, produces:
Soylent GreenRegeneX by harvesting humans for their genes.
This is done at the Jupiter Refinery, which is buried in the center of the Giant Red Spot of the planet Jupiter, in our system. Access to the Refinery is controlled by a corridor/tunnel/access gate or Vortex, that pushes the storms/gas/hurricanes of Jupiter aside. Otherwise, ships attempting to travel through the storm are destroyed by the gas hurricanes.
But it's never explained why Jupiter, or Jupiter's Giant Red Spot. Was Jupiter chosen for protection of what's considered the most valuable product? Or was the gas needed in it's creation? Is the Jupiter Refinery the only refinery for RegeneX? It can't be because of Earth, as it was expect to take centuries to be ready for Harvest. Or was it simply a sci-fi fascination with the King of Gas Giants?
So why Jupiter (the planet)? Book or Movie or interview answers would be great.
