No matter where you look, almost every industry is feeling some kind of impact from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Theaters were among the first to close their doors to hinder spread of disease, but this left many current and upcoming movies without a proper theatrical release. Some studios are opting to delay major films, but many of the flicks are still coming out as scheduled, but in the form of early releases through streaming services. Many of us are movie fans, so we’re going to keep track of the films that are only headed to the home theater.

A note about pricing: Before we get to the list, it’s important to point out that some of the rental prices for home premieres and early rentals are higher than we’re used to seeing for normal rentals. This was done to compensate for the revenue that would have been made from a theatrical release where each attendee pays for a ticket, whereas you may be viewing this rental with any number of people in your home. As with any purchase, it’s up to you to decide if you’re comfortable with the price, or choose to wait until prices come down.
