2020 was a wild year for theatrical releases that is going to take quite some time to fully recover from. One the one hand, the lack of theatrical releases last year means that all those delayed films will be delayed even further when it comes to their release on Blu-ray and DVD, which left 2020 a far different year than we expected.. However, with theaters closed, many films decided to go directly to video on demand platforms. Under the circumstances, this is great, as it gives people access to the same movies in the comfort of their own homes.
Exactly what the future has in store for home releases in 2021 is anybody's guess right now. But we'll keep things updated here with the news on the newest releases as they are announced.
January DVD And Blu-ray Releases
January is frequently a slow month for brand new movies in theaters but it's usually a big month for home releases as we see popular films from the late summer and early fall coming home. Unfortunately, because of the global pandemic, the theatrical release schedule wasn't everything we were hoping for, and that domino effect has continued to plague DVD releases. Having said that, there are still some interesting movies worthy of checking out that will arrive in January.
TV fans will have plenty o series to add to their collections, including Season 2 of Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone from CBS All Access, the final season of The 100, and the first season of the television adaptation of Snowpiercer. But it isn't all TV, there were some good movies that came out last year that may have flown under the radar due to everything that was going on, and might get a much better chance to be seen now, like Jungleland, with Charlin Hunnan, and Love and Monsters starring Dylan O'Brien. Checkout the full list of January releases below.

February DVD And Blu-ray Releases
February 2021 almost, almost feels like the movie industry hasn't been at a near standstill for the better part of a year. While there certainly aren't as many major releases coming in February as might have expected 12 months ago, nearly every week of the month has something worthy of note, movies with major names that either actually were released in theaters, or at the very least would have been under normal circumstances.
The beginning of the month gives us Let Him Go, a drama with Kevin Costner and Diane Lane that is getting solid reviews, and Wild Mountain Thyme, a movie that's not nearly as well reviewed, but has such a bizarre twist in it that it might be worth checking out anyway. There's also the body swap horror movie Freaky and the better than it has any right to be disaster movie Greenland. The new "Milla Jovovich is in a movie based on a video game" film, Monster Hunter will also be available to view digitally in February ahead of its physical release next month.
If nothing else, the fact that some of these films didn't even have a theatrical release is making the physical release of the film happen incredibly quickly. One has to wonder if that process will continue even once theaters are back to normal. Here's everything slated to debut in February.
