News: More Movies Going Early Digital

In the wake of theater closures (AMC, Regal, Cinemark, Alamo, and the newly opened Showplace ICON in Tyson's Corner) and more and more people being told to isolate and quarantine, movie studios are pushing up digital releases to try and appeal to newly sedentary moviegoers.  Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was made available for digital purchase last week, much earlier than the original plan.  Warner Bros. is the latest to push up a digital release, announcing that Just Mercy is now available for digital purchase (VUDU, iTunes, FandangoNOW).  Renting will be available starting March 24.

Additionally, the fantastic movies Birds of Prey and the Gentlemen were both had their digital releases pushed early, and both will be available starting next week.  It seems like movie studios are moving quickly to adapt to the #QuarantineLife and it will be exciting to see what else comes from this monumental shift in daily life.
