The Wachowski's sci-fi epic JUPITER ASCENDING has been pulled from his July release date. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Wachowski's original sci-fi epic “needed more special effects work”. This is a shame really as it was one of the few original films of the summer that wasn’t a superhero film, a sequel, or a relaunch. The Hollywood Reporter also commented that “Bad buzz likely sparked concern on the Warner Bros. lot, where the Wachowski siblings had longtime ties to former film studio chief Jeff Robinov”.
What do you think Maniacs? Remember Elysium got switched around last year. Anyone really remember Elysium? The Green Lantern got a special effects touch up too. We all remember how that film played out.
Synopsis: From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
JUPITER ASCENDING features Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike”) and Mila Kunis (“Oz the Great and Powerful”) lead an international cast that also includes Sean Bean (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy), Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”), Douglas Booth (“LOL”), Tuppence Middleton (TV’s “The Lady Vanishes”), Doona Bae (“Cloud Atlas”), James D’Arcy (“Hitchcock”) and Tim Pigott-Smith (“Alice in Wonderland”).
JUPITER ASCENDING arrives February 6th, 2015.
