  • 5 brilliant film releases you can watch early at home

    If you’re looking for some good news today, you’ve landed on just the right page – especially if you’re missing the silver screen. To make sure you don’t miss out on some of 2020’s biggest theatrical releases so far, film studios are making them available early for on-demand streaming. 

    Did you miss the new Jane Austen adaptation Emma in cinemas? Or perhaps, like us, you went with friends, then took your mum, and have been looking forward to watching it again in the comfort of your own home. Well, Emma joins a tantalising host of titles including The Invisible Man and The Hunt, all of which are being made available to rent for 48 hours on Amazon Prime Video UK, Google Play, iTunes and Sky Store. Kind or clever? We’d like to say both.

    So, gather your snacks from the foyer (the kitchen), your in-house film buddy and all the duvets and blankets that you own – and we’ll see you in Screen One (the living room). 

    Oh, and grab your phone too so you can capture the moment and tag #homewithhush to share your experience with us!

    Emma

    You don’t have to be a Jane Austen fan to fall in love with Autumn De Wilde’s pitch-perfect depiction of Emma. This romantic comedy-drama about a meddlesome matchmaker in 19th century England is the perfect weekday evening watch. It’s hold-on-to-your-bonnet funny, visually scrumptious and features a stellar cast including Anya Taylor Joy, Johnny Flynn, Bill Nighy and Miranda Hart. 

    Available now on Amazon Prime Video UK, Google Play, iTunes and Sky Store.

    The Hunt

    This satirical thriller – about a group of liberal elites hunting people for sport – managed to attract plenty of publicity long before anyone had seen it. From shifting release dates to prompting angry tweets from President Trump with its controversial plot, it’s little wonder the poster now reads “the most talked about movie of the year [...] that no one has actually seen.” If you’ve seen any other Blumhouse movies (The Purge, Get Out, Paranormal Activity), you might have an idea of what’s in store. Well, we’ll let you in on something: we saw The Hunt early and you can forget everything you think you know. Intrigued? You should be.

    Available now on Amazon Prime Video UK, Google Play, iTunes and Sky Store.

    The Invisible Man

    We’re likely to say that anything starring Elizabeth Moss is worth watching (that’s because it is), but The Invisible Man is being praised by critics and the hush team alike for its tantalising, thought-provoking plot. The contemporary retelling of H.G. Well’s classic novel is the best monster film in years and it’s not-too-obvious #MeToo era themes make it as timely as it is thrilling. 

    So, make sure you catch it before it disappears!  

    Available now on Amazon Prime Video UK, Google Play, iTunes and Sky Store.

    Birds Of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

    Like a bird set free, this fresh and fizzing follow-up to Suicide Squad takes the very best part of it – technicolour firecracker Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) – and lets her run riot in a world of her own. Directed by Cathy Yan and produced by Robbie, we follow a post-break-up Quinn as she teams up with fellow DC anti-heroes including Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Renee Montoy (Rosie Perez) to take down Gotham kingpin Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor). Well, it's a bit more complicated than that, but just trust us that it's one wild ride you won’t forget. 

    Available from 24th March on Amazon Prime Video UK and iTunes.

    Trolls: World Tour

    No matter if you share a house with children or not, the sequel to 2016’s Oscar-nominated Trolls is the dose of computer-animated escapism you need. Not only are the Trolls undeniably cute, they’re also voiced by the likes of Anna Kendrick, Jamie Dornan, James Corden and Ozzy Osbourne. Plus, it features a zesty soundtrack produced by the one and only Justin Timberlake (which even sees soul artist SZA make a welcomed comeback). Join Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) as they set out to unify the Trolls in harmony against big bad Queen Barb (Crazy Ex Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom). 

    Available from 6th April on Amazon Prime Video UK, Google Play, iTunes and Sky Store.
