Birds of Prey Will Be Released on Video On Demand Early

Warner Bros. will release “Birds of Prey,” a spinoff of 2017’s “Suicide Squad,” for digital purchase on March 24, earlier than its anticipated release.

The film is expected to cost $19.99 on platforms such as Amazon and iTunes, and will be available for rental in April, the studio confirmed to Variety.

At any other time, it would be a surprising move since “Birds of Prey” is still playing in theaters and exhibitors have been steadfast to resist any attempts from studios to shorten the amount of time that films are available on the big screen. However, multiplexes in multiple states, including New York, Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington, have been ordered to close in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Even before theaters officially closed, audiences had started to avoid crowded venues amid the public health crisis, causing box office ticket sales to crater.

The news comes following Universal’s decision earlier Monday that “Trolls World Tour,” from DreamWorks Animation, would be available on home entertainment for $19.99 the same day it was expected to hit theaters. The studio’s other titles that were still playing on the silver screen — Blumhouse thrillers “The Hunt” and “The Invisible Man,” as well as “Emma,” an adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel from Focus, Universal’s specialty label — will also be accessible to purchase on demand.

What New Food & Beverages Will They Serve At Disneyland’s Avengers Campus?

Even superheroes get hungry. When Disneyland’s Avengers Campus opens later this summer, visitors will be able to try all sorts of Avenger-approved foods and beverages — including intergalactic desserts, scientifically shrunken entrees, and of course, shawarma, perfect for refueling after saving New York City from an alien invasion.

Quantum Pretzel

The main restaurant on campus is the Pym Test Kitchen, where food and drinks have been blown up and shrunken down using Hank Pym’s signature Pym particles. First up is a 396-gram Bavarian-style pretzel, served with mustard and beer cheese dipping sauce. 

Impossible Spoonful

The plant-based meatballs and pasta shapes in the Impossible Spoonful are a mix of extra-large and extra-tiny sizes, all served in the biggest spoon you’ve ever seen. 

Not So Little Chicken Sandwich

The crispy chicken breast in this chicken sandwich has been blown up to enormous proportion and served with teriyaki and red chili sauces, pickled cabbage slaw, and crispy potato tots. 

PB3 Superb Sandwich

This Pym Particle-infused sandwich mixed peanut butter, banana, smoked bacon, and strawberry jelly, and it’s served with tots and a banana smoothie shot.

PYM-ini

Named for Pym Test Kitchen’s scientist founder, the Pym-ini is an extra large sandwich served on toasted ciabatta with salami, rosemary ham, provolone, sun-dried tomato mayonnaise, arugula, and marinara dipping sauce. 

X-Periment, Molecular Meltdown, Honey Buzz, And Particle Fizz

Adjacent to the Pym Test Kitchen is the Pym Tasting Lab, where adults can grab both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. 

Snack Molecules

Over at the Pym Tasting Lab, patrons can grab this assortment of popped sorghum, mini pretzels, and honey roasted peanuts, served in a petri dish.

The Regulator

Among the Pym Tasting Lab options is the Regulator, which mixes Patron Silver tequila, lime juice, habanero and mango syrup, Golden Road Mango Cart wheat ale, and mango popping pearls. 

Proton PB&J Punch And Pingo Doce Soda

The non-alcoholic menu includes options like lemonade-peanut-butter punch and Pingo Doce soda — a glowing green reference to 2008’s Incredible Hulk movie.

Entertainment Weekly Black Widow Cover Story

Scarlett Johansson readies for battle the way a veteran doctor scrubs in for surgery or an astronaut gears up for her eighth space flight. Hair drawn back in a tidy braid, she barely glances down at Natasha Romanoff’s familiar black catsuit as she buckles every buckle and zips every zipper with rhythmic efficiency. Squeezed into a closet-size armory on a Manhattan Beach soundstage, Johansson’s assassin-turned-Avenger is surrounded by all the guns, knives, and glossy wigs a superspy could ever need. She moves like she’s been doing this for a decade — because she has.

But this is something new: There’s no Captain America or Hawkeye to assist her, no S.H.I.E.L.D. backup waiting out of sight. This is Black Widow’s long-awaited solo movie, set in the turmoil between the all-star superhero team’s breakup in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and their reunion in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. The mission she’s prepping for is personal, as the former Russian agent is going up against opponents from her past. When a fellow Widow, Rachel Weisz’s Melina, wonders how they’ll tackle one particularly formidable foe, Natasha replies, “Just get me close to him.” It’s not an arrogant quip or a self-congratulatory boast, just a matter-of-fact threat from a spy who is very, very good at her job.

Then, just as Johansson pulls on her last glove with a satisfying snap…darkness. The studio has lost power; in the dark, someone calls out for flashlights. After a quick investigation, the production crew discovers the blackout is not the work of a diabolical supervillain but a blown transformer nearby. Natasha’s mission will have to wait a little while longer — but that’s all right. Black Widow knows how to wait.
