With the coronavirus pandemic still making its way through the United States, leaving most movie theaters closed, has meant movie studios have had to rethink how they are going to be releasing new movies during this time.
Thankfully for them, services like Apple TV/iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Redbox on-demand and Fandango NOW have allowed them to get movies out to consumers that way.
Disney has gone as far as to release its newer films such as “Frozen II” and “Onward” on its streaming service Disney+ shortly after they were released on DVD or made available on-demand through one of the services listed above.
With that said, those movies through an app like Apple TV can run up to $19.99 just to rent it. That’s not fun for the consumer, especially if money is tight because of the pandemic.
There are two movies that are pretty cheap to rent and are movies just for adults and one for the whole family to enjoy.
The first one is a movie starring John Hawkes and Logan Lerman called “End of Sentence”
It is about a father and son who try to patch up their disagreements between each other and spread the ashes of Hawkes’s wife in the movie.
“End of Sentence” can be purchased in the Apple TV app and iTunes for just $7.99 and rented for $6.99, which are some of the cheapest prices we have seen on new movies over the last couple of months.
A reason the price could be cheaper than your average movie is that the film is an indie film, meaning it is not a movie like “American Sniper” or “Grown-Ups” with a large budget and expensive cast.
Another new movie that came out in early 2020 that has done pretty well at the box office, but is also currently cheap to rent is “Sonic the Hedgehog,” which costs $3.99 to rent in the Apple TV app and iTunes.
We hope this gives you some movie and streaming options to watch this weekend and throughout next week as the pandemic continues and people look for ways to not have their eyes on news channels.
