Universal Studios announced it will accelerate the release of some of its movies, making them available at home, due to coronavirus outbreak. The announcement came after a slight box office in total, that saw overall figures bring in just $55.3 million — the worst numbers since 1995.
The company said that the upcoming Trolls World Tour, which was set to release in theaters on April 10th in the US, will be available on-demand starting as early as March 20.
As to the films that are still in the middle of their theatrical runs, The Hunt, The Invisible Man and Emma, will be available on the most popular on-demand services for a 48-hour rental period. In the US, the suggested retail price is $19.99.
