JUPITER ASCENDING Pushed To 2015 for “VFX Work”

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

In a strange and sudden twist, Warner Bros. has bumped the sci-fi bonanza Jupiter Ascending from the July 18 release this summer to February 6, 2015 of next year.

In Jupiter Ascending Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum plays an ex-military hunter tasked with tracking her down.

Doing VFX work sounds reasonable considering the movie is a CG fest, but also it could be because the movie is terrible.  Speculation will run rampant either way so I’m going to go out on a limb and say it was because it was TOO good they didn’t want to sweep the summer and destroy all other movies before and after its release! So shove it in February where no one will see it.

Cloud-AtlasHere is a new trailer for Cloud Atlas, and it’s another great one (see the extended one here).  The film is directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) and based on David Mitchell’s novel.  The all start cast take on multiple roles during different time periods and at different locations – so thank God Susan Sarandon is narrating this trailer or we would all be lost.

The film stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, and David Gyasi.  Cloud Atlas opens on October 26th.

“Cloud Atlas” explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.

Well that didn’t take long.  We showed you the first images from the movie and now we have a trailer, it’s unofficially Cloud Atlas day gang!

It’s a six-minute international trailer for Cloud Atlas, a movie based on David Mitchell‘s novel of the same name.  It tracks the lives of multiple characters across multiple eras and how they come together in one way or another.  I knew the movie was going to be huge in terms of scale and visuals, but wow, this looks like someones messed up dream come to life.  They went for it alright, and it’s going to pay off beautifully by the looks of things.
