* ''VideoGame/RaymanLegends'' was originally going to come out in February 2013 exclusively on WiiU, but thanks to the console's low sales and ''VideoGame/{{ZombiU}}'' not selling as well as expected, Ubisoft decided to port the game to other platforms as well, which pushed the release date back to September. This made many fans angry because while the Wii U version was finished in time for the original release date, Microsoft's licensing policy forbids games from coming out on other platforms before they do on Xbox, necessitating the delay even on Wii U. Fans were also mad because the new release date put the game up against late-year blockbusters such as ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', as opposed to the quieter month February when it might have stood a chance of selling well. To further rub salt into the wound, the game was ported to Playstation 4 and Xbox One in early 2014, making one wonder why they didn't delay it again to coincide with the [=PS4=]/XO release.

Not to be confused with TrailerDelay, where DevelopmentHell causes a big gap in the original and final release dates.

* [[Creator/JJAbrams J.J. Abrams']] ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot was originally slated to be released in Christmas 2008, but was pushed back to May 2009 probably finding a summer release more profitable.

* ''Film/MonsterTrucks'' was one of the most extreme cases, although [[StarringSpecialEffects the effects]] helped post-production take a lot. Filmed in 2014, [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2016/06/01/the_monster_trucks_trailer_will_leave_you_speechless.html the release date was changed four times]], ultimately settling for January 2017 - i.e. the very definition of a {{Dump Month|s}}.
* ''Film/XMen1'' was first set for Christmas 2000, but it got the June release date that would be of ''Film/MinorityReport'' once Creator/StevenSpielberg delayed that for ''[[Film/AIArtificialIntelligence A.I.]]'', [[ChristmasRushed forcing production to roll six months ahead of schedule]]. The release date was then moved to July 14.
* ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation'' was originally slated for Christmas 2015. However, [[DuelingMovies another spy movie in November]] ([[Film/{{Spectre}} James Bond, no less!]]) and extended hype for another December release, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', made Paramount push it forward to July.
