In times of films being canceled or postponed, a few are taking the route of releasing online or on-demand. On that note, the Vin Diesel led film Bloodshot will be made available on-demand (digital purchase) on 24th March 2020.
“Sony Pictures is firmly committed to the theatrical exhibition and we support windowing,” Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said in a statement. “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 opened March 13 and is based on the Valiant Entertainment comic book. It centers on a soldier (Diesel) who is manipulated into carrying out a series of assassinations, and who is powered by nanotechnology in his bloodstream.
The Bloodshot VOD move comes after NBCUniversal announced Monday that it would be breaking the window between theatrical and home entertainment, with recent releases including The Invisible Man and The Hunt being made available digitally as early as Friday.
