The coronavirus pandemic has taken a major toll on Hollywood's box office, as social distancing and shelter-in-place orders across the U.S. have led to release date delays, production shutdowns, theater closures, and, as a result, record-low movie ticket sales with no end in sight.

In response to the crisis and theatrical closings, several film studios have been taking proactive measures to ensure their newest movie releases are still seen by as many people as possible. The latest example is Universal/Dreamworks' Trolls World Tour, which will bypass theaters altogether for an on-demand premiere on Friday, April 10. Here's a rundown of movies that are hitting on-demand services ahead of schedule along with links to options for how to watch each title online and where to get DVDs and Blu-Rays, if you prefer to have a physical copy.

Dosed, Human Capital, Tape

It's not just blockbusters being affected by the theatrical shutdown. A number of indie films have altered their release plans as well.

Once theaters reopen, distributors Mangurama/Abramorama will remove the film from streaming and resume theatrical release.

Other indies coming to digital platforms and VOD early include Liev Schreiber-led family drama Human Capital, which is available as of March 20, and revenge drama Tape, which will be doing a novel theatrical-style digital release starting March 26, where it will available at theatrical screening times and be followed by online live panel discussions about the film via digital conferencing app Crowdcast.
