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.
