The film was previously scheduled to release on October 9, 2015, but in July 2015 Relativity pushed back the film to February 26, 2016, because the company was facing financial crisis, before being re-scheduled to May 13, 2016. On March 14, 2016, it was revealed that Kidnap would be the first post-bankruptcy film which uses August 16, 2016 as a new release date, pushing The Disappointments Room and Before I Wake off the release schedule. Before I Wake will be released on September 9, 2016, while The Disappointments Room will be released on November 18, 2016.
