Just in case you have some free time on your hands and didn’t get out to the theater to see Universal Studios The Invisible Man or The Hunt, both movies will be made available for home viewing on Friday March 20.
According to Deadline, “In an unprecedented crunch of the theatrical window as several markets across the U.S. close down in response to safety from the coronavirus as well as worldwide, NBCUniversal’s Universal Pictures is officially making their current movies in cinematic release –Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man and The Hunt, and Focus Features’ Emma– available in homes as early as this Friday for on-demand 48-hour rental at the suggested price of $19.99.”
And just in case you want some real cinematic scares, “Universal/Dreamworks Animation’s Trolls World Tour, which was scheduled to be the first theatrical comeback title down the road in the midst of the coronavirus climate on Easter weekend April 10, will now go day-and-date in homes and on the big-screen.”
Although no other wide releases are scheduled until April 10 (for the time being) when A24’s Saint Maud is scheduled to debut, other studios may soon follow suit. Disney made Star War: Rise of Skywalker available four days early this past weekend and other films that recently left theaters may also be pushed up to take advantage of captive audiences around the country.
