The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending was originally scheduled to be released last summer. It was delayed to February 6th in order to fully finalize the massive amount of SFX shots used in the film. From its most recent trailer, Jupiter Ascending will be visually spectacular. Whether it will be successful financially is up to the movie-going audience to decide.

The film stars Mila Kunis as a space opera Cinderella who does not realize that it is her fate to be the Queen of the Universe and of particularly the mother planet whose inhabitants were the first to populate a small little blue planet known as Earth. Helping her in her quest to become Queen is Channing Tatum as a genetically engineered soldier cultivated specifically for this role. Eddie Redmayne (recently Oscar nominated for his Stephen Hawking portrayal in The Theory of Everything) is an ambitious royal eager who also has eyes on the throne.

The concept art is absolutely stunning, particularly the work done by Philippe Gaulier and Olivier Pron who were responsible for some of the space station designs.

Philippe Gaulier has worked on films such as Iron Man 2 and 3, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: The Age of Ultron. Gaulier is currently working at Method Studios in London as the art department lead concept artist where he splits time between Soho and the onset film studios art departments.

Olivier Pron has worked on movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man 3 , Cloud Atlas, Watchmen and X-Men: The Last Stand. He is a concept artist and matte painter currently working in the film and entertainment industry at Method Studio based in London as well.
