Before I Wake” will arise on Sept. 25, 2015, after Relativity Studios has opted to move the horror film out of its early summer release date.

In its new slot, “Before I Wake” will face off against “Hotel Transylvania 2” and “The Intern,” a Nancy Meyers comedy with Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway.

It was originally slated to premiere on May 8, a date on which it would have faced competition from “Hot Pursuit,” a buddy comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, as well as the second week of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

“Before I Wake” stars Thomas Jane and Kate Bosworth and centers on an orphan child’s ability to manipulate reality with his dreams.

Relativity is moving the picture because it believes that horror and thriller films tend to perform well in the fall, according to a source close to the studio. It also has a busy summer, with raunchy comedy “The Bronze” launching on July 10 and “Masterminds,” a heist comedy with Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson, hitting theaters on Aug. 7.

Moving the picture will allow the studio to focus more attention on each film, the source said.

However, moving “Before I Wake” means the studio is exploring new dates for “The Disappointments Room,” which is currently also slated for Sept. 25. That horror-thriller stars Kate Beckinsale and Lucas Till, but it’s not clear when it will debut.

    They understand that inn a business deal, either the numbers work or they don’t, and there’s no in-between. But other experienced investors tell you quife on the contrary that you must be willing to pay
    the asked price and even a little bit more when youu come across a real deal.

    Oh my gosh can someone just tell me a estimated release date on this film! I’ve checked all over google,nobody seems to know when this is going to air! I’m way past impatient with the studio.. If they make me wait much longer I’m just not going to watch it I’ll be to annoyed,I know they think pushing it back might mean more profit but that’s about to backfire! Some pages say April 2015 others say February 2016 ask the way to April 2016 now & that’s JUST for it to go to theater’s! Its really aggravating that they pushed commercials all of 2015 here we are a year later & still no movie!! REALESE THIS FILM for the LOVE of every thing holy people COME on!! Btw- thanks to who made this site for trying to figure this mess out..

      We are extremely annoyed too. They have advertised it in for months, but we can’t seem to find it anywhere. I have never seen this happen before and we go to the movies sometime twice in one week. Maybe it is so bad that they have to get people so annoyed that they can’t help but want to see it… Please post if you find out any information
