|Jupiter Ascending (2015) concept art by Oliver Pron|
The latest film by The Wachowskis was originally scheduled to open July 25, 2014, but was rescheduled for this Friday. The reason is that the film features over 2,000 special effects shots and they felt they couldn't do it justice in time. "With the July release date, they were just not going to make it on time,” domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman told Variety, “A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time.” From the look of the trailer and the concept art it's a very ambitious effort and looks gorgeous. Two of the talented artists working on the film, Philippe Gaulier and Oliver Pron, have shared concept art in advance of the release.
Philippe Gaulier and Oliver Pron are professional concept artists who've worked on big budget movies like Iron Man 3 (2013), Inception (2010), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).

What do you think of the concept art? Are you looking forward to Jupiter Ascending?
"Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in 'Jupiter Ascending,' an original science fiction epic adventure from film-makers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Jupiter Jones (Kunis) 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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), 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. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, 'Jupiter Ascending' is written and directed by the Wachowskis."
