Drats! The summer romance you couldn't wait to see (no, I'm not talking about Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort in The Fault in Our Stars) won't be hitting theatres this summer after all. That's right, Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, won't be out until February of 2015. Whaaaa?
While we don't have any intel on why the film was bumped to a winter release, we are upset that we have to wait another few months to see Tatum donning a blonde goatee and elf ears. The only way this news could be acceptable is if it were because Tatum needed more time to allot for Magic Mike 2. Sadly, we don't think this is the case.
The film is now slated to come out February 6, 2015, bumped from the original release date of July 18 of this year. According to IMBD, the film follows:
Jupiter Jones 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 toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, 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.
IMDB has yet to update their database with the bad news, so here's hoping it's all a terrible joke.
