Universal Is Allowing You to Watch Movies Online That Are Still In Theaters Including ‘Trolls World Tour’

NBCUniversal has some pretty awesome news to share with the public. I don’t know about you, but I need some uplifting news during this time!

For everyone just as upset as I am that movie theaters are currently shut down and future films have been delayed in production, this announcement will definitely make you smile again.

NBCUniversal might have just made being stuck inside a little bit more bearable and family night a whole lot easier!

Get ready to sit down and grab your popcorn!

Movies from Universal Pictures will now be available On-Demand on their release date, starting with the movie “Trolls World Tour” for your little kiddie to watch and enjoy while he or she is home from school!

Universal films that are already released in theaters such as The Hunt, The Invisible Man and Focus Features’ Emma will also be arriving on On-Demand on Friday, March 20.

It has yet to be announced exactly how many movies from Universal Pictures will be put On-Demand and for how long, but at least we know we’ll have something to watch during this time!

“Given the rapidly evolving and unprecedented changes to consumers’ daily lives during this difficult time, the company felt that now was the right time to provide this option in the home as well as in theaters. NBCUniversal will continue to evaluate the environment as conditions evolve and will determine the best distribution strategy in each market when the current unique situation changes,” said NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell.

For a 48 hour period and 20 bucks, you can rent these movies the day they release in theaters.

Maybe now you can have that in home movie theater you’ve always dreamed of and watch movies the day of their release date right in the comfort of your own home!
