- Major theatre chains such as AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas have recently closed all their U.S. locations due to the coronavirus.
- Studios are now looking to launch recent releases to VOD and digital purchase early as a way to combat theatre chains closing their doors and generating revenue.
- New films coming to VOD within the next two weeks soon include The Invisible Man, Birds of Prey, Bloodshot, The Gentleman, The Hunt, and Emma.
In an attempt to give audiences access to newly released films early multiple studios are prepping to place certain films early on video-on-demand.
According to Variety, Margot Robbie’s DC Comics flick Birds of Prey, that only released a month ago, will be ready for digital purchase and VOD on March 24th (Amazon, iTunes, etc) for $19.99.
