With less than two months before the film was originally scheduled to arrive, Warner Brothers has recently announced that Jupiter Ascending is making the jump from its intended release date of July 18th, 2014 all the way to February 6th, 2015. The reason for the delay has been confirmed by Variety to be extensive post-production work necessary to complete the over 2000 visual effects shots to satisfaction.
Dan Fellman, who is attached to the project as the domestic distribution chief, commented on the delay by saying that "With the July release date, they were just not going to make it on time. A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time."
However, the delay will not come as much of a shock to people who have been following the production, since reshoots have been occurring in Spain, as evidenced here:
Jupiter Ascending is now scheduled to arrive on February 6th, 2015.
Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in "Jupiter Ascending," an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that 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 (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. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, "Jupiter Ascending" is written and directed by the Wachowskis.
