  • 'Birds of Prey' and 'The Gentlemen' to get early VOD releases

Birds of Prey and The Gentlemen are joining the flock of movies getting released on video-on-demand early.

Warner Bros. will be releasing its newest DCEU film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) earlier than expected on VOD.

Margot Robbie's DC Comics spin-off, which returns the Oscar nominee as Harley Quinn, will be dropping on VOD home release much earlier than was planned on March 24.

The film, which is expected to retail at $19.99, will be purchasable on Amazon, iTunes and other platforms.

The decision from Warner Bros.to bump up Birds of Prey's home release follows word from Universal Studios that several of its films that are now in the middle of their theatrical runs would become available digitally as early as Friday, March 20. It was also reported Monday evening that Cineplex, Canada's largest movie exhibitor, will close its doors until april 1, due to the outbreak. However, multiplexes in multiple states, including New York, Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington, have been ordered to close in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
