During this time of social distancing, lots of people have been turning to streaming services more than ever to pass the time. Now with theater chains closed Amazon has launched a new service to help you bring the theater experience home! Amazon Prime Video Cinema is a new hub on Prime Video that lets you buy or rent movies that under normal circumstances would have still been in theaters right now.

You can’t go to the movies, so the movies will come to you! The new hub features movies that Hollywood hoped you’d be watching right now in theaters but because of the coronavirus pandemic theaters were forced to close. While the library of movies on tap isn’t huge, there are some heavy hitters that you can watch in the comfort of your home months before they would normally be released to streaming services. Check out some of the more popular movies available below:
Poppy and Branch discover that there are six different troll tribes scattered over six different lands. Each tribe is also devoted to six different kinds of music — funk, country, techno, classical, pop and rock. When rockers Queen Barb and King Thrash set out to destroy the other music, Poppy and Branch embark on a daring mission to unite the trolls and save the diverse melodies from becoming extinct.
Adapted from the beloved literary classic, THE CALL OF THE WILD vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team–and later its leader–Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.
Jack Cunningham was a high school basketball superstar who suddenly walked away from the game for unknown reasons. Years later, he’s now stuck in a meaningless job and struggling with alcoholism — the very thing that ruined his marriage and his hope for a better life. But Jack soon gets a shot at redemption when he becomes the basketball coach for his alma mater, a program that has fallen on hard times since his teenage glory days.
