As the lockdown extends into May 2020, Netflix DVD has plenty of new titles being added to its catalog for you to rent. Here’s a complete breakdown of all the new Netflix DVDs that will be made available throughout May.
For those who aren’t aware of Netflix’s DVD platform, it’s what kicked the whole Netflix operation off. The service operates solely in the United States and ships DVDs, boxsets and Blu-rays to customers for home-viewing.
Netflix’s DVD operation is fully aware of the current situation regarding COVID-19, so if you’re looking for their response and precautions then they’ve got a full blog post here.
Now let’s take a look through some of the highlights…
Sonic the Hedgehog
Netflix DVD Release: May 19th
One of the few movies that has managed to release theatrically this year is Sonic the Hedgehog which makes it a key contender for the Oscars. Who’da thought.
Based on the popular video game, the movie is about the superfast hedgehog who tries to escape the authorities. After a redesign, the film has received rave reviews from fans.
Birds Of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
Netflix DVD Release: May 12th
The big DC movie of the year (with the others look to be delayed due to COVID) is Harley Quinn’s solo adventure. While the movie failed to make real waves, it’s certainly an enjoyable romp with Margot Robbie returning to play the titular role.
In the movie, she’s separated from the Joker and heads off on a side-adventure with some familiar faces to help save a girl from an evil crime lord.
The Invisible Man
Netflix Release Date: May 26th
The Invisible Man managed to get a small theatrical run before going on PVOD last month. Now it’ll be available on VOD and most importantly, Netflix DVD.
Directed by Leigh Whannell, the movie features an exemplary performance from Elisabeth Moss. She’s trying to convince everyone her ex is now haunting her with a state of the art suit that allows him to be invisible.
Two Netflix Originals series will be heading to Netflix DVD next month too. We’ll have a full post on why more Netflix Originals aren’t on DVD soon.
The two getting added is fan-favorite Lucifer which will see the fourth season available to rent or buy on disc. The fourth season is the first to be released solely on Netflix and there’s a reason for its popularity, it’s infinitely bingeable. The second is the first season of the Narcos spinoff Mexico. The second season just released on Netflix recently but if you fancy revisiting, the first will be available in May.
