All The Recent Releases You Can Watch Now

We’ve been covering the effects that COVID-19 has had on the entertainment industry. These stories have included news about production shutdowns to delayed premieres, from interviews with filmmakers on current and stalled projects to how the industry is helping citizens and the healthcare industry alike.

Another novel scenario that the global pandemic has created, another one on the positive end of the spectrum, is that studios are making their recent releases available on digital platforms early.
