The summer movie season is looking a lot different than usual this year.

Because theaters are closed by coronavirus, many of the huge blockbusters-in-waiting have been shifted to later this year or even into 2021. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy new films coming out in June, July and August, though. A lot are coming to streaming services in the next few months that were either intended for theatrical release or always meant for at-真人百家家乐官网网站home enjoyment.

Some are hanging tough to their theatrical dates, from major movies like Christopher Nolan's “Tenet” (slated for July 17), Disney’s live-action “Mulan” (July 24) and superhero sequel “Wonder Woman 1984” (Aug. 14) to Russell Crowe’s road-rage thriller “Unhinged” (July 1) and the innovative Riz Ahmed musical drama “Sound of Metal” (Aug. 14). While we wait to see if those dates stick, what's coming to streaming seems a lot more solid: Here are 10 upcoming movies to definitely put on your quarantine calendar:
