2020 is only a third of the way over, and yet the Blu-ray and Digital release calendar has already been a hub of activity. With movie theaters closed we've seen movies hitting digital storefronts faster than ever before, and we now have word from at least one studio that this will become the new normal. As theaters have continued to remain closed, the last films that did see a theatrical release in 2020 have continued to trickle out on physical media. Although, with most of them getting released in May, there won't be much left to release after this month is over.

January

We’re heading into 2020, but the New Year still has 2019 on the brain, at least in terms of DVD, Blu-ray and Digital releases. For the next few months, we’ll be seeing some big 2019 content coming out on these platforms, both of the big budget and indie variety.

In fact, the first week of January in 2020 is a huge one for DVD and Blu-ray releases. Todd Phillips’ behemoth hit Joker is hitting those platforms for the first time after hitting Digital just in time for the holidays. It also comes with the “miserable to make” flick The Lighthouse, which is hitting homes just as we head into awards season. (And also was one of our favorite horror movies in 2019.)

HBO’s Big Little Lies Season 2 is also getting a big release at the beginning of January 2020, so it won’t be a light kickoff to the month at all. Diving in deeper, we have family favorites like Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, The Addams Family and more hitting homes. We also have critical favorites like Parasite and some big budget releases like Terminator: Dark Fate coming, as well.

It’s not a bad way to kick off the year, particularly given January is usually a little light on new theatrical releases. So, you and your family can cozy up with some hot chocolate (maybe that only happens in Hallmark movies?) and pick and choose from some excellent releases.

As usual, Digital releases are the same day as the DVD and Blu-ray releases, unless otherwise noted. Take a look at what’s coming up, below.

We’re just getting the year started, so stay tuned and keep an eye out for the other home entertainment releases coming in 2020!

February

The first month of 2020 brought with it some of 2019’s biggest movies on DVD and Blu-ray. The second month will be no different. Some of the big movies that closed out last year will finally be making their way to our homes so we can enjoy them as frequently as we like.

The end of every year is always so full of potentially great movies looking for awards consideration that it’s close to impossible to see everything, so now we can all catch the great films we missed at a leisurely pace.

The beginning of the month sees the release of Doctor Sleep, a film most critics loved but most clearly didn’t see, so perhaps this will be the movie’s change to find an audience. We’ll also see the release of awards darlings like Jojo Rabbit, and Knives Out, as well as big blockbusters like Frozen II.

As usual, Digital releases are the same day as the DVD and Blu-ray releases, unless otherwise noted. Take a look at what’s coming up, below.

March

The third month of 2020 will take care of nearly every remaining film released in 2019 that had not yet seen a home release. This means a great combination of both awards caliber films and crowd favorite holiday releases are on the way, as well as a few films that may have been looking for awards season recognition but found themselves overlooked.

March opens with a pair of those movies as both Queen & Slim and Dark Waters, which reviewed well but didn’t make many year-end short lists, hit Blu-ray. Perhaps they’ll find their audience at home. We will, however, see the digital release for Jumanji: The Next Level, which is impressive considering the film is still in some theaters.

A few big Oscar movies will be hitting throughout the month of March, including, Bombshell and 1917. But the major release for March, of course, will be Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will see a Digital release in the middle of the month with the physical release coming on the last day of March.

Check out the full list of March releases below. Everything comes out on Tuesday of the listed week unless noted otherwise.

April

What a difference a month makes. At the end of February, as we were looking forward to what March had to offer on the home entertainment front, everything looked like business as usual. And now, it's anything but. The calendar got reshuffled multiple times over the course of the month, as several releases, mostly digital, were released early to take advantage of the fact that large swaths of the nation are being asked to shelter in place. Even films that were in theaters a month ago are on that list.

While Hollywood is largely at a standstill theatrically, there are still, for the moment, a few months worth of films from the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2019 still waiting for their digital and/or physical home release. This includes Oscar nominees from last year, like Little Women, and what is, largely due to the fact that theaters are closed for business, still the highest grossing movie of the year, Bad Boys for Life.

With so many movies having released digitally already, the pickings for April are now a bit slim, but, early in the month will see the unprecedented release of Trolls World Tour, a film that was originally scheduled for a theatrical run, and rather than simply delaying that release with theaters closed, as other films have done, the movie will debut on Digital platforms April 10.

Here's everything else April has to offer.

May

May is here, and with it comes, basically, the last batch of Blu-ray releases of any movies that have yet seen a theatrical release. March saw the release of movies like Pixar's Onward, Vin Diesel's Bloodshot and the well regarded horror movie The Invisible Man and while, at this point, basically everything has seen its digital release, already, for those people who want to own the physical discs, you'll now have your chance. Assuming you're cool with ordering them online, of course.

Other Blu-rays hitting the street in May include the popular Sonic the Hedgehog movie as well as the far less popular Fantasy Island movie. But at this point, can you really argue? You've seen all the good movie by now, only the bad ones are left. Here's the rundown of everything hitting Blu-ray in may 2020.
