Warner Bros pushes the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending to 2015

Jupiter Ascending, the new film from the Wachowskis, has been pushed back from July 2014 to February 2015...

The last time a major blockbuster was delayed until the following year really quite late in the day, the gamble worked. Paramount pulled the not great G.I. Joe: Retaliation from a summer slot to a March 2013 release, and was rewarded with a stronger than expected box office returns.

Warner Bros will be hoping the same happens again too, as it's made the relatively late decision to shift July's Jupiter Ascending, the new movie from the Wachowskis, to February 6th 2015.

The movie, which stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, human spoiler Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne, is a standalone sci-fi flick, that had been due on July 18th. The new date still gives it some competition - including new Johnny Depp movie Mortdecai - but it should still give Jupiter Ascending a bit of breathing space. We're still looking forward to seeing it...
