With movie cinemas closed in order to prevent large congregations of large crowds and stem the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), many movies are getting early digital releases. Now, another Disney cinema release from 2020 is available digitally much earlier than expected.

Variety is reporting that The Call of the Wild is now available digitally. The film, which released in cinemas on February 21, 2020, can now be viewed from home for $15. The film, which stars Harrison Ford, flopped at the box office, but might fare better with audiences who are now self-isolating and looking for entertainment.

The film, which is adapted from Jack London's 1903 novel, is a family-friendly adventure film with a lovable dog at its heart. It's the live-action debut of director Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch, How To Train Your Dragon). There's no word yet on when the movie will arrive on streaming service Disney Plus.

Another title has also been made available much earlier than expected. Downhill, the US remake of the (excellent) Swedish comedy Force Majeure, can now be purchased for $10. It stars Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a couple that struggles in the wake of an incident at a ski resort.

Other films to have received early digital releases so far this year include Onward and Birds of Prey, while both Bad Boys For Life and Sonic the Hedgehog hit earlier this week.
