    Default Jupiter Ascending

    Well... I can't say THAT'S a good sign...

    Just six weeks ahead of its planned release, the Wachowskis' space thriller "Jupiter Ascending" has been postponed to 2015.

    Warner Bros. announced the date change late Tuesday. The movie, with a budget of $150 million or more and starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, will now open Feb. 6 instead of July 18.

    It's a stunning and unusual move for a high-profile film so close to release. "Jupiter Ascending," which Warner Bros. co-financed with Village Roadshow, will bounce out of the lucrative but high-pressure summer movie season and into early February, often a dumping ground for troubled movies.

    Andy and Lana Wachowski have a checkered box-office track record. Though their "Matrix" trilogy was a huge hit, their "Cloud Atlas" and "Speed Racer" both flopped at the box office.

    The trailers have looked a little sketchy. I'd really like to see the Wachowskis hit something out of the park again, but I'm not sure this will be it.

    Well, no responses back in June and that pretty much sums up the current buzz for this movie.

    I saw a bunch of trailers last spring (for the initial summer 2014 date), and now have heard nothing promotionally despite this coming out in a month and it costing $175 million to make or whatever it cost.

    It doesn't seem to bode well.

    I think the cast stinks. Chad Tatum no doubt is a good looking man but can't act and the same goes for that young lady.

    They should have picked Tom Hardy and some other female to play the role.

    I saw a trailer for in front of a showing of Inherent Vice last week. Jupiter Ascending looks hackneyed and stupid; I bet it was pushed back because in tests it rated very poorly. It certainly looks like a $175,000,000 turd.

    I wasn't impressed by last year's trailer, I'll note that as well.

    Kind of a shame. I'd like to see the Wachowskis make a decent movie again. Probably their best two movies ever were their first two (although Cloud Atlas is messy but glorious, if it's the kind of thing one is into).

    A friend of mine said that the test audiences laughed all the way through this movie even though it isn't a comedy so it was sent back to be edited and re-shot so that it might look serious.

    Hmm. The trailer doesn't look like good chemistry, but I'd see it, since I seem desparate these days for any sci-fi.

    "In this week’s edition of the Variety Movie Commercial Tracker, powered by iSpot.tv, “Jupiter Ascending” displaced “American Sniper” with the top TV ad spend, laying out an estimated $10.3 million on 972 national airings across 46 networks, led by MTV and Comedy Central."

    A sign of a big ad spend for a short hit in the box office, as fast and hard as possible? We shall see.

    Jupiter ascending to Uranus; Saturn is jealous.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Piglet was comforted by this.

    Just keep that Venus away from Uranus. That could be a galactic nightmare.

    I don't expect very much of this movie, but I normally don't expect much from the Wachowskis, either. They have interesting ideas but then they bury those ideas under layer after layer of distractions.

    Then again, I thought Speed Racer was awesome, so I'm probably not one to judge their talents.
