* Paul Schrader shot his prequel to ''Film/TheExorcist'', but studio Morgan Creek had not much faith in it and instead ordered Renny Harlin to shoot his own version, 2005's ''Film/ExorcistTheBeginning''. Eventually Schrader's version was released as ''Film/DominionPrequelToTheExorcist'' one year later.

** ''Kidnap'' was set for an October 9, 2015 release date, which got changed to February 26, 2016 to make room for the aforementioned ''Masterminds'', if it went forward with the release that is. While the film is not off the slate just yet, RKA Film Financing threaten to confiscate the rights to this and three other films from Relativity, only to back out later. The date eventually got pushed back to May 13.

** ''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).

You can say that Relativity [[IncrediblyLamePun dodged a bullet]] with this one.



** ''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.

* ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' was originally dubbed and prepared for a home video release in the US in 1998, and trailers for it appeared on various Disney video tapes. However, because of the surprise success of ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' on video, Disney decided to rethink their plan for the film. They planned on releasing it in theaters first, and they re-recorded the film's musical score with the original composer. However, after the disappointment of ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'''s theatrical release, Disney once again decided to rethink how to release ''Castle in the Sky'', and put it on hold again. The film sat on the shelf until 2003 when it was finally released by Disney on video and DVD after only being screened at a few children's festivals.

* ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'', the prequel to ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'', was finished in 2012 and was scheduled for a November 2012 release, but its release date was moved to Summer 2013. This is because Disney's ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' was finished ahead of schedule, and they didn't want to wait so long to release it. Since Pixar prefers to release their movies during the summer anyway, ''Wreck-It Ralph'' ended up taking ''Monsters Academy'''s original release date.
* ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie'' is rumored to have been completed sometime in the late 1980s (and [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece it shows]]) but was not released until 1991. Unfortunately, it was on the same day as ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAndMisterFreezeSubZero'' was intended to be released in 1997, to tie in with ''Film/BatmanAndRobin.'' The latter's horrendous reception, however, led it to be delayed until March of 1998 (by which time [[TheNewBatmanAdventures Batman's new cartoon]] had already aired a sequel episode to the movie).
* ''Disney/TheHunchbackofNotreDame II'' was put out by Disney in 2002, but it has a copyright notice of 2000.

* ''Little Fockers'', the 2nd sequel to ''Meet the Parents'' was released in 2010, however it was filmed in late 2008/early 2009 (in fact, AOL News, at the time had posted on-set photos of the film). Primarily the reason for the delay was due to Dustin Hoffman changing his mind about appearing in the film (originally he opted not to), so the release date was pushed back so scenes with Hoffman's character Bernie could be filmed. The only thing that really sticks out related to the delay, is Robert De Nero's character is shown using MySpace, a social networking site that had lost a good chunk of popularity to Facebook by 2010.
