As theaters across the US close due to the coronavirus pandemic, movies that were recently on the big screen are arriving early on digital rental or streaming for audiences to watch at home.
Major theater chains like AMC Theatres and Regal announced on Monday they would shut down all US locations after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offered new guidelines to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
In an unprecedented move, Universal Pictures was the first to announced that it would break the traditional theatrical window and making four of its movies available on video-on-demand as early as Friday. That includes "Trolls: World Tour," which hadn't hit theaters yet (it was scheduled for April 10).
"Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)"
"The Invisible Man"
"Trolls World Tour"
Also available early: "Frozen II"
