These movies are coming to your home sooner than expected

Movie lovers have plenty of reasons to feel sad right about now.

Nearly all of America’s biggest theaters — including all Regal and AMC locations — are temporarily closing their doors. Meanwhile, movies like “No Time To Die,” “Mulan” and “Fast and Furious 9” have been delayed from their upcoming release dates.

But there’s a bright side. To keep viewers entertained while they’re stuck inside, studios are releasing countless in-theater films to home audiences early. Those titles include everything from kid-friendly animated films to high-stakes thrillers — and the list is probably set to get even bigger.

But for now, here are some of the movies coming early to your home screens, and how to watch each one.
