* The Weinstein Company strikes again! They originally set an April 2015 release date for the animated film ''Underdogs'', but they pushed it back to August 14, 2015 to take advantage of the late summer season.

** ''Film/JaneGotAGun'' was among the Relativity casualties and it did its TroubledProduction no favors. Originally set for a September 4, 2015 release after its February 20 date got pushed back, the film was removed from the schedule entirely and Relativity had to give up on the rights. The Weinstein Company (who co-produced the film) handled the US release, opening it on January 29, 2016 (when it bombed, giving Creator/NataliePortman the first of two consecutive commercial bloody noses, as ''Film/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies'' [on which she was one of the producers] opened and underperformed the following week).

** ''The Disappointments Room'' was another victim of Relativity's financial collapse. It was supposed to come out on September 25, 2015, but the release was quietly canned. It was set for March 25, 2016, but that date had to pushed back now that Relativity has emerged from bankruptcy.
** ''Once I Wake'' got off easy than the rest. The horror film was originally set for May 8, 2015, only to be pushed back to September 25, 2015. Unfortunately, it could not escape Relativity's perturbation and the release was delayed indefinitely. With the issues at the studio being resolved, a new date for April 8, 2016 has been announced only for it to be pushed back.
