The new comic-book movie Bloodshot will be released for digital purchase on March 24, just 11 days after the film hit theaters.
After only a few days in theaters, all movie theaters around the country have been shut down due to social distancing mandates amid the pandemic.
“Sony Pictures is firmly committed to theatrical exhibition and we support windowing,” Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said in a statement (via THR). “This is a unique and exceedingly rare circumstance where theaters have been required to close nationwide for the greater good and Bloodshot is abruptly unavailable in any medium. Audiences will now have the chance to own Bloodshot right away and see it at home, where we are all spending more time. We are confident that — like other businesses hit hard by the virus — movie theaters will bounce back strongly, and we will be there to support them.”
Bloodshot will be available for the digital purchase price of $19.99. It’s not clear when the movie will be available for rentals.
Other current movies that will be released on digital include The Invisible Man, The Hunt, Emma, and Birds of Prey. The upcoming film Trolls World Tour will be getting a VOD release in April.
