Well we are got our wish, because of dire circumstances unfortunately, but we got our wish none the less. What could be a signal that an industry is adjusting based on realities of the times. Universal Studios announced that it is planning to release movies that are still in theaters on movie rental platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, iTunes Store, Google Play Movies, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu and others.
This move follows the release of Frozen 2 to Disney+ almost three months ahead of its planned debut on the service.
Movies that will be available as early as this Friday will include The Hunt, The Invisible Man and Emma. They will be available for the standard 48 hours like regular rentals.
Recent movies releases that have been delayed include No Time to Die, Mulan, F9 and A Quiet Place Part 2. We will have to wait and see if any of these films will be released to the rental distribution channel in the coming weeks.
