Jupiter Ascending release postponed to 2015

New York — Just six weeks ahead of its planned release, the Wachowskis' space thriller Jupiter Ascending has been postponed to 2015.

Warner Bros announced the date change late on Tuesday. The movie, with a budget of $150m or more and starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, will now open on 6 February instead of 18 July.

It's a stunning and unusual move for a high-profile film so close to release. Jupiter Ascending, which Warner Bros co-financed with Village Roadshow, will bounce out of the lucrative but high-pressure summer movie season and into early February, often a dumping ground for troubled movies.

Andy and Lana Wachowski have a checkered box-office track record. Though their Matrix trilogy was a huge hit, their Cloud Atlas and Speed Racer both flopped at the box office.
