Movies Being Released Early to Streaming Services While Theaters Close


Obviously, theaters all across the country are closing down temporarily amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course we appreciate them doing that, but at the same time...it kinda sucks! There were so many new movies coming out that I was looking forward to seeing. Luckily, the film industry is on our side! Several movies are being released to streaming services early so that you can watch them from the comfort of your fully sanitized home! Check out the list below.

The Invisible Man

Summary:

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
