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...

There was a trailer for it when I watched Edge Of Tomorrow last night stating in huge letters that it was out in July. Bit close to release date to move it- hope it doesn't mean that it's bad as was quite looking forward to it...

'Human Spoiler' should go on his Wikipedia entry.
Gutted, really - saw a new trailer before X-Men last night and was really looking forward to this. I guess it means they don't have to worry about competing with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And, y'know, all the other great sci-fi we've had this year.
PS Both this and GI Joe had the Tatum as lead...coincidence? BLAME THE TATUM.

Hmm, I was really looking forward to this one. Oh well, hopefully it'll be worth the extra bit of waiting :)

Is this reckoned to be worthwhile, or is it another 'Revolutions'-style prank?

I don't need insider-knowledge but I can safely report that the film has been pushed back because no-one cares. No audience, no release.

well that gives me time to get through the summer blockbusters first!

A pity. I was really looking forward to seeing this next month. Still, something to look forward to in the new year.

I saw the trailer yesterday as well, looked like a confused mess to me, has "MASSIVE FAILURE" written all over AFAICS.

One does not simply save Sean Bean...
