Warner Bros. Realizes “Hey, Jupiter Ascending Isn’t Ready Yet,” Pushes It Back to 2015
Well this is… odd. Andy and Lana Wachowski‘s Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum as a pointy-eared space elf and Mila Kunis as the space princess he has to save, was supposed to come out about six weeks from now, on July 18th. Only now it’s been pushed back to February 6, 2015, because “the Wachowskis needed more time to complete their work on more than 2,000 special effects shots in the film.” …Is everyone just now figuring this out? The last-minute release date shuffle could make me concerned for the eventual quality of the film, but instead I’m just shaking my head at the Warner Bros. execs and imagining Andy and Lana throwing tennis balls at their heads while shouting “Yo, chuckleheads, post-production takes a lot of time.” VFX is typically one of the major high points of a Wachowski movie, so I’m glad they’re not rushing it.
