UPDATE: Paramount Pictures is racing Sonic The Hedgehog to an early release on digital. The video game movie about a speedy blue hedgehog will hit VOD on March 31.

With theaters across the country being avoided or shuttered, Hollywood studios are turning to VOD and streaming to save their stymied ROI. The latest movies to make the leap from theaters to VOD are March releases Onward, Bloodshot, The Way Back, and I Still Believe.

Disney announced Onward will be coming to their streaming service Disney+ on April 3rd. If you just can’t wait, no worries. The family friend-fantasy adventure is available for digital purchase for $19.99, starting today at 5:00PM PST/ 8:00PM EST.

Less than a week after it hit theaters, Columbia Pictures’ Vin Diesel vehicle Bloodshot will be available for digital purchase of $19.99, starting March 24.

The Ben Affleck-fronted drama The Way Back is following suit on purchase-only option, price, and the March 24 debut date.

The faith-based biopic I Still Believe opened opposite Bloodshot last Friday. Lionsgate announced it will be available on VOD across all premium platforms on March 27.

These films join the ranks of Emma, The Invisible Man, The Hunt, Birds of Prey, and The Gentlemen, all titles that leaped from theaters to digital before the standard 74-day window had passed.

Which of the above are you most excited to see?
