    For the record, Seventh Son wasn’t pushed back because of any production or story issues. It was a victim of the corporate split between Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.

    When the split happened, Legendary had to pick movies to keep and others would be sold to different distributors; they kept Pacific Rim (ftw), and Seventh Son got shelved until they found new distributors. Universal picked it up, but I think the release date kept moving around because they weren’t sure where to fit it in their slate of movies they were already doing.

    Yes, I looked that up back when Pacific Rim was in theaters, because they kept showing the trailer for Seventh Son, and I got curious about it. It’s even featured prominently on the PR Blu-ray :)

    I admit I was curious about Jupiter Ascending because it had that “Sense of Wonder” that seems to be missing from sci-fi. Then I found out it was another YA novel trying to capitalize on Hunger Games and Twilight. Now I’m skeptical but will wait until I learn more before making a decision.

      Well, you’ll have plenty of time to learn more. Jupiter Ascending got pushed back to Feb 2015… (not a good sign)
