Relativity Moves Up Kate Beckinsale Thriller ‘The Disappointments Room’ by 2 Months

Focus of movie release shifts to VOD

Relativity has moved up the release date for the dramatic thriller ‘The Disappointments Room’ from Nov. 18 to Sept. 9.

The release of the Kate Beckinsale film will now focus on video on demand, according to Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, who tweeted the news on Monday.


“The Disappointments Room,” directed by D.J. Caruso and also starring Lucas Till and Michaela Conlin, revolves around unspeakable horrors that a mother and her young son discover the attic of their country home.

Originally set to open in theaters last March 25, the film has moved around the release calendar as Kavanaugh has worked to revive Relativity, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2015.

The company has repeatedly changed the dates of several of its titles.

“Masterminds,” starring Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilsonand Jason Sudeikis, will be released on Sept. 30 — 13 months after it was initially supposed to come out. It is directed by Jared Hess.

Kate Bosworth‘s “Before I Wake,” costarring Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane and Annabeth Gish, and directed by Mike Flanagan, will open on Sept. 9.

And “Kidnap,” starring Halle Berry, will debut on Dec. 2.

Kavanaugh has remained chairman and CEO of the reformed Relativity Studios, while producer Dana Brunetti was named president and creative leader earlier this year.
