Just six weeks ahead of its scheduled July 16 release, Andy and Lana Wachowski postponed the opening of their sci-fi epic, “Jupiter Ascending,” eight months hence to Feb. 6, 2015.
The reason cited was the need to finish its more than 2,000 special effects shot for the film.
Written, produced and directed by the Wachowskis, the $150 million-budgeted sci-fier for Warner Bros. was filmed at Cinespace from June through October last year.
It is speculated that the Wachowskis’ highly secretive 20,000-sq. ft. Kinowerks studio in Ravenswood might be where some of the effects will be created.
“Jupiter Ascending” stars Channing Tatum as a genetically engineered ex-military hunter and Mila Kunis, the eponymous Jupiter, whose extraordinary inheritance could alter the balance of the cosmos. See the trailer here.
