Disney is moving its Chris Pine-starring Coast Guard drama The Finest Hours out of the 2015 awards season and away from Universal’s Steve Jobs biopic.

The period film, directed by Million Dollar Arm’s Craig Gillespie, had been moved from its original release date of Oct 9th 2015 to April 15th 2016, placing the sea-rescue epic right in the middle of awards season.

Now Finest Hours is being released on Jan. 29, 2016, Disney announced Wednesday.

After Disney set Finest Hours for Oct. 9, Universal announced that it would be releasing its Steve Jobs biopic, starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs, on the same date. That month also features the release of a number of other highly anticipated titles, specifically Focus Features’ London Has Fallen (Oct. 2), Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak (Oct. 16) and Jem and the Holograms (Oct. 23). By pushing back the film, Disney can also release it under its new Imax slate deal, announced Wednesday morning. Finest Hours is getting a 3D wide release.

In addition to Pine, Finest Hours stars Eric Bana, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster. The film, based on the book of the same name by Casey Sherman, tells the true story of the 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission to save the crews of two oil tankers hit by a Noreaster off the New England coast

With its new date, Finest Hours is being released in the same corridor that American Sniper was released in this year, with the film going on to earn $535.9 million worldwide.

The Disney title could also get some promotion ahead of another big Disney film: the latest Star Wars movie, which is now opening before Finest Hours.

Cinderella’s Prince (Chris Pine)
Pay close attention to Pine’s perfect hair as his prince careens through the woods. ”I sat in the makeup chair, and we started playing around with hairstyles,” said the actor. ”I said, ‘What if he had this weird Elvis pompadour, always coiffed and absurdly too big?”’ He continues, ”There’s something laughable about him. He’s very gallant, but you just want him to also be, like, a douche.’

This is great news to hear, especially with how hilarious the first one was. I can only imagine what kind of character Chris will play.

Chris Pine has closed a deal to play one of the horrible bosses in Horrible Bosses 2, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Sean Anders and John Morris, hot off of penning New Line’s surprise comedy hit We’re the Millers, are directing the comedy.

Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jamie Foxx are set to reprise their roles in the workplace comedy.

New Line is in the process of finding the titular bosses right now. It was hoping that Pine and Christoph Waltz would play a son-father duo but Waltz passed.

Pine is in between action franchises: He is coming off of Star Trek Into Darkness and next has Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit opening Dec. 25.
