'Jupiter Ascending' Pushed Back To February 2015 Release Date

Posted: Updated:

Uh oh. "Jupiter Ascending," the sci-fi thriller from Lana and Andy Wachowski, has been pushed back from its July 18 release date to Feb. 6, 2015.

Channing Tatum stars as a "half-wolf, half-albino warrior" who tries to save Mila Kunis' character, a house cleaner with perfect genetics who threatens the Queen of the Universe. Naturally, the queen tries to have Kunis killed. Warner Bros. has already released a few trailers that preview the fire-powered action and futuristic costumes.

"Run All Night," a Liam Neeson action film from Warner Bros., was set to debut on Feb. 6, but has now been bumped to make room for "Jupiter." A new release date for "Run All Night" has not been announced.

The movie had a reported budget of $150 million but needed extra time to work on the more than 2,000 special effects shot in the film, Variety reports. Warner Bros. domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman told the trade mag, "A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time."

The Wachowskis are the brains behind the "Matrix" trilogy, which grossed more than $1.6 billion, "V For Vendetta," "Speed Racer" and "Cloud Atlas."

Check out the trailer below.
