What’s new to VOD and streaming this weekend

With theatres closed, distributors are fast-tracking their movies to digital platforms. Here's what's arriving this week


Well, here we are. Sitting at home, browsing the internet, desperate for distraction between COVID-19 updates. Movies are distracting, right? Let’s talk about those.

As I wrote last week, the closure of theatres sent studios scrambling to address the new normal of watching movies at home. Universal, Warner, Sony and Disney all accelerated the availability of their most recent releases to digital services, the better to capitalize on any megaplex heat they’d built up – and to ease the blow of losing tens of millions of dollars in ticket sales.

So if you were bummed that you didn’t get the chance to catch up to The Invisible Man or Bloodshot, now you can watch them at home for about the price of two adult tickets. And if your family missed out on Onward, you can all watch that together for a lot less than it would have cost to see it on the big screen. Just don’t invite any friends over. We’re not there yet.

Here’s a list of what’s new. Prices may vary by platform.
