Studios will release some of their upcoming blockbusters for digital purchase and rental much earlier than expected. The movies will be available to stream at home on account of the COVID-19 outbreak, though some will start as for-purchase only. Get the pillows, blankets and snacks ready for a relaxing night on the couch. Take a break from the news, and find time for a flick with the family.
