Jupiter Ascending is reportedly set to debut at Sundance secret screening TONIGHT!
“Jupiter Ascending,” the tentpole space opera from the Wachowski siblings, will debut at the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday night as this year’s “secret screening,” Variety has learned.
Warner Bros., the studio behind the costly science-fiction adventure, declined to comment. But multiple sources confirm that the film will show for the first time at the evening event.
The festival’s secret screening is not, however, considered the formal premiere. Neither the film’s directors, Andy and Lana Wachowski, nor its star Channing Tatum are coming to Park City, according to people familiar with the matter.

The producer of Jupiter Ascending – Grant Hill - spoke to ScifiNow. In the newest issue he talks a little bit about the movie story and explains the unfamous delay.
On the story
“It’s a very grand world – or series of worlds – that have been created. They’re very vivid and very different, and the look and the workings of these worlds is just something that I think, on a scale, hasn’t really been seen before.”
“There’s a freshness, certainly, from the smallest thing to the broad vision of the world. It’s just so re-envisaged that it does take your breath away a little bit. But I guess that at centre of it, it is also a sort of sibling rivalry story, which is a story that people know, people have seen it in their own families, and they’ve seen it in large more prominent families. It’s about rivalry, it’s about the relationship of a family, and at its heart it’s a love story.
On the unfamous delay
“We didn’t want to rush it in a way that didn’t allow time for Warner Bros to properly market the movie. Those things are always competing a little bit in visual effects movies, because until you get right to the very end of it you don’t have the full movie in the sense that you would a drama or a comedy or whatever. ”
“There are different sorts of risks. I mean, there are financial risks, creative risks, ‘can you do it in time’ risks… In this case, I think that the risks are not of a commercial nature. I think the risks going into it were more that Lana and Andy had a vision that was so detailed and so fantastical.”
“We needed to design so much stuff. We had a little more time on so it allowed us to work that out a lot. But I think by the time we got to filming we had pretty much exactly what we hoped we would get to, but it took a lot to get there.”
