No, but there's an awkward moment where Jupiter makes a romantic confession to Kane and he rebuffs her by saying he's literally part dog. She blurts out "I LOVE dogs!"

The protagonist is pursued through most of the film with political motivations, but I would not categorize it as stalking.

The bad guy brutally beats the heroine while calling her "Mother." (She's not his mother, but she has the same genes, and looks the same.)

Also, in the backstory, one of the villains killed their actual mother, but we don't ever see this, even in a flashback. (The other comment to this question has more specific spoilers about this.)

Also, during a family argument, a patriarch shouts at a younger man and hits him with a pillow.

Gaslighting involves manipulating someone to make them question their own sanity. This movie includes lies/manipulation, but no gaslighting.

One of the villains talks about their upbringing and it sounds pretty messed up, basically like their mother indoctrinated them into space fascism and mass murder.

There's a race of dragon-like humanoid characters and some of them are killed. Potentially triggering.

No, but worth mentioning: The heroine is knocked unconscious while wearing only a hospital gown. When she wakes up, she's wearing her regular clothes. A man, who is a stranger to her at this point, admits he dressed her while she was unconscious. There's no suggestion that he had any bad intentions, but she does seem uncomfortable with it, and it's brought up again later in a scene where she emphasizes wanting to dress *herself.* Could be uncomfy for some viewers.

A character is briefly cut on by a many-armed machine before dropping out of the frame. People are threatened with similar machines in other scenes.

There is a scene in which one character is thrown out into space (he survives). In an earlier scene the protagonist has an oxygen mask and the oxygen is maybe cut off? Unsure

Nooo, but there's some similarities to the way the bad guys talk about "harvesting" planets and converting their human population into consumable goods.

Technically, yes. A character is thrown feet-first through a small portal, which his opponent then closes around his neck via remote control. His neck is thus broken and we can see his body hanging below through a transparent floor. Use your discretion.

Yes, multiple characters. They all survive and most have their memories wiped of the ordeal, so minimal chance of traumatic aftermath.

In the beginning, and another parent’s death (murder) is referenced a lot. (More spoilery - the protagonist’s family is kidnapped and threatened but they all survive.)

Use of futuristic machines that include needles and slender drills, some of which are inserted into unconscious people's heads and torsos.

No. (Spoiler warning) The antagonist suggests that when he murdered his mother she said she “hated her life” and “begged [him] to do it”. He’s largely unreliable and cruel, but potentially uncomfortable for some viewers.

(Vague spoilers) The climax of the plot involves a fight/chase scene in a crumbling techo/space-punk city. The camera is quite regularly jostled by explosions, terrain shifts, and to add intensity to the action.

Of the science-fiction variety, as a character who is a human-animal hybrid is referred to with derogatory names like "beast."

No, but you could make an argument for it. Protagonist's DNA is randomly a match for the antagonists' mother; this has some spiritual meaning to them and she is considered a reincarnation, but they do not seem to literally consider her their mother. One of them tries to coerce her into marrying him for political reasons, but there is no romance/sexual activity of any kind between them. Use your discretion.

An empty parked car is struck by a spacecraft, causing its alarm to go off (played for laughs). No active vehicles crash during this movie.

No, but cars are hit (by each other/by spacecrafts), so if the auditory components of a crash - glass shattering, metal, etc. - are part of your triggers, take care.
