Movies being released early due to the coronavirus

Movies released early that you can watch while self-quarantining

Studios are releasing films early due to the COVID-19 outbreak

Miss going to the movie theaters while you social distance? Us too! With most theaters going dark due to the  coronavirus  pandemic, several studios are bringing some light and entertainment into homes with newly released movies available for rent or digital purchase. That’s right, while we self-quarantine, we can watch a number of films, many of which are in the middle of their theatrical run, from the comfort of our couch. “Given the rapidly evolving and unprecedented changes to consumers’ daily lives during this difficult time, the company felt that now was the right time to provide this option in the home as well as in theaters,” NBCUniversal said in a release. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, Universal Pictures is making its current features available for movies goers to watch at home on the same day as the films’ global theatrical releases.

Likewise, the Walt Disney Company has opted to drop movies ahead of schedule on Disney+, like Frozen 2, in an effort to bring families “some fun and joy during this challenging period.” So, get ready to pop some popcorn because here are some new releases that we can all enjoy while self-quarantining:
