UPDATED: Warner Bros and Village Roadshow were set to open the Wachowskis’ sci-fier Jupiter Ascending on July 18 after moving it up by a week in the summer 2014 tentpole calendar back in December. Now the actioner starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis won’t fly into theaters until February 6, 2015. WB’s action pic Run All Night, starring Liam Neeson as a hitman protecting his family, had occupied that February date but has been moved off the schedule completely as Jupiter slides into its place. I hear the Wachowskis needed more time to complete visual effects work on their CG-heavy space epic, which spans intergalactic worlds and follows the story of a woman (Kunis) who links up with a space warrior (Tatum) and learns she’s the heir to Earth. The shift to February now pits Jupiter Ascending against Johnny Depp in Lionsgate’s Mortdecai and Universal’s fantasy actioner Seventh Son, which ironically endured multiple date changes and millions of dollars in extra fees when its own VFX schedule was thrown into crisis by the Rhythm & Hues bankruptcy.
It’s been more than three months since we got our first look at Jupiter Ascending, now comes the second trailer for the sci-fi actioner written and directed by the Wachowskis. Look for warriors, crafts that soar through space and under water, bees, toilets and battles for the very future of our Earth. Channing Tatum plays an interplanetary warrior and Mila Kunis is a janitor who’s meant for much greater things. Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne also star. Warner Bros will release the Village Roadshow co-production on July 25. Check it out:
