Jupiter Ascending Delayed Until 2015. Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski‘s Jupiter Ascending, a film originally scheduled to debut on July 18, 2014, has been delayed until February 6, 2015.

Warner Bros. domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman had this to say about the delay:

Citing the need to finish extensive special effects…the Wachowskis needed more time to complete their work on more than 2,000 special effects shots in the film.

“With the July release date, they were just not going to make it on time,” he added. “A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time.”

On what Jupiter Ascending delay means for the other films that it would have originally opened against:

The departure of “Jupiter Ascending” leaves three major titles opening on July 18 — Sony’s comedy “Sex Tape,” Disney’s family cartoon “Planes: Fire and Rescue” and Universal’s horror sequel “The Purge: Anarchy.”

Jupiter Ascending‘s plot synopsis: “Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.”
