With the film industry being in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, a ton of content will see an early release on the digital market, with the recently released Bloodshot being the latest film to follow this sensation.
According to Comicbook.com, the Vin Diesel vehicle made the transition to digital after earning a small amount on preview night and facing the eventual shut down of the cinema. Set for a March 24th release date, the Valiant comic property will be available for digital viewing at a retail price of $19.99 in the U.S. through numerous retailers. International sales will be determined in the coming days.
“Sony Pictures is firmly committed to theatrical exhibition and we support windowing,” said Tom Rothman, the current chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group. “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,” continued Rothman.
As of right now, Bloodshot currently maintains a critical score of 32% on Rotten Tomatoes and an audience score of 78%.
