The Coast Guard thriller will open on the October 9 date originally set for the animated family film, which is pushed to 2016
Disney Studios on Tuesday swapped the release dates of two high-profile movies. The Chris Pine Coast Guard thriller “The Finest Hours” will open on the October 9, the date that the Jon Favreau-directed remake of “The Jungle Book” had been set for. The animated family film will now open on April 15, 2016.
The new date will put “The Finest Hours,” which co-stars Casey Affleck and is directed by Craig Gillespie, up against Relativity’s Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap” and Warner Bros.’ remake of “Vacation.”
Star Trek actor Chris Pine, his Star Trek director J.J. Abrams (also working on a little movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Gravity filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón will join Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs on Jan. 15 to reveal the contenders for the 87th Academy Awards.
Usually, only the 12 celebrity and movie categories are announced before a global TV audience, with one actor and the Academy president doing the presentation. Telecast producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are adding extra announcers this time because now all 24 categories will be revealed live.
Pine, who has a film in contention this year with Into the Woods, will reveal most of the traditional dozen categories alongside Boone Isaacs, and Abrams and Cuarón will announce the competitors in many of the other behind-the-scenes fields that were previously only revealed via press release.
Here’s how next Thursday’s announcement will go down:
5:38 a.m. PT – Pine and Boone Isaacs will announce:
– Best Actor
– Best Actress
– Best Supporting Actor
– Best Supporting Actress
– Costume Design
– Foreign Language Film
– Makeup and Hairstyling
– Original Score
– Adapted Screenplay
– Original Screenplay
– Best Picture
I’ve added captures and official stills of Chris from his most recent appearances for the month of December while visiting Good Morning America, Live with Kelly and Michael and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote Into The Woods which is now in theaters.
I would like to take the time to wish all my site visitors and fellow fans of Chris a very joyous holiday season. May you and your families have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
HollywoodReporter.com — Star Trek 3 will beam into theaters on July 8, 2016.

The film currently has the July 8 release date to itself.
I’ve added a few photos of Chris spotted filming the upcoming Disney film ‘The Finest Hours’ in Marshfield, MA from earlier this month. The film is said to be in post-production according to its IMDB page, and is currently set for a 2016 release.
