The Coronavirus has caused many studios to release their movies on-demand as many theaters are closed.
2020 has been scary! We didn't need Hollywood this year to make us shit our pants and hoard toilet paper rolls. But before the pandemic began there was The Invisible Man. This movie is being called the scariest movie of the year so far.
The Invisible Man premiered in cinemas on the 28th of February and managed to cross $100 million worldwide and 91% on Rotten Tomatoes before the world went to sh!t. Most theaters worldwide are closed and people aren't going to be able to experience the movie on the big screen. However, Blumhouse has got us covered.
You'll be able to stream The Invisible Man at home on demand for $19.99 from this Friday. It'll be available on iTunes, Amazon and other providers.
The Hunt and Emma will both be released online at the same time as The Invisible Man due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Universal’s Trolls World Tour will be released on-demand on April 10.
CEO of NBCUniversal, Jeff Shell, said in a press conference Monday morning:
We hope and believe that people will still go to the movies in theaters where available, but we understand that for people in different areas of the world that is increasingly becoming less possible.
The Invisible Man wasn't the most anticipated film of 2020 but for some reason managed to score at the box office. It stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. The synopsis is:
After staging his own suicide, a crazed scientist uses his power to become invisible to stalk and terrorize his ex-girlfriend. When the police refuse to believe her story, she decides to take matters into her own hands and fight back.
This is one of those once in a lifetime horror films that is almost perfectly executed. If you have yet to see it in cinemas then you can stream it online from Friday.
During the worldwide spread of COVID-19 here's what you can do to protect yourself:
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds
Avoid close contact with someone who is sick or appears sick
