It’s fair to say that the coronavirus pandemic has completely up-ended Hollywood, with cinemas closed, release dates shifting and productions halting all over the world.

While many studios have moved to simply cancel upcoming releases, others have opted to ensure that recently released movies can find an audience online.

Major studios including Universal, Disney, Paramount and Warner Bros have decided to put some of their most recent releases into digital stores and on to VOD platforms early.

Here are all of the digital releases that have been fast-tracked in the UK, with information on some of the movies available on the other side of the Atlantic as well...
