Original distributor Dimension Films had initially set release date for August 2, 2016. However, on July 25, Variety reported that Dimension had sold the rights to Entertainment Studios. Entertainment Studios cancelled the August 2 home release and instead released the film theatrically in the United States on June 16, 2017. Dimension had already sent out screeners and pressed DVDs of the film to retailers before the deal. The DVDs under the re-title In the Deep were recalled; however, several retailers broke the street date and a handful of physical copies were sold and have since turned up on eBay as collector’s items. After the purchase, Entertainment Studios reverted to its original title.
