With most theater screens still darkened amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic -- forcing many studios to push back release dates of upcoming films -- some are dropping their newest releases on streaming for at-home quarantine viewing instead.
Universal Pictures led the charge by making new releases such as The Hunt and Trolls World Tour available far sooner than expected, while Disney began streaming Frozen II and Onward on Disney+ "during this challenging period." And that was just the start of our at-home streaming slate.
Below, an up-to-date list of early releases and scroll on to see what's coming soon:
