Bad news! Eddie’s new film that was supposed to be released to theaters next month has been pushed back to February!
At the 11th hour, Lana and Andy Wachowski’s sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending is being pushed back from July 18 to Feb. 6, 2015.
Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow co-financed the $150 million film, which stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. Insiders say the movie needed more special-effects work.
Still, the move is a stunning one, considering Jupiter Ascending was to have been released in less than two months. To boot, the February corridor is one of the quietest of the year, although Hollywood and exhibitors are trying to change that.
Mixed buzz likely sparked concern on the Warner Bros. lot, where the Wachowski siblings had longtime ties to former film studio chief Jeff Robinov. They also made The Matrix films for Warners.
Jupiter Ascending is an ambitious film starring Kunis as a lowly house cleaner who learns she is a galactical princess.
