Fences, which was nominated for four Academy Awards and won for Viola Davis as Best Supporting Actress, Disney’s animated hit Moana (which was nominated for two Oscars), and the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (also nominated for two Oscars) are coming to video-on-demand in March.
It’s a great month for film featuring strong women and great actresses, including Jackie starring Natalie Portman as Jaqueline Kennedy and the French drama Elle with Isabelle Huppert (both Academy Award nominees for Best Actress), Mike Mills’s 20th Century Women with Annette Benning (an Oscar nominee for its screenplay), and Miss Sloane with Jessica Chastain.
Also coming in March: the animated Sing for family audiences, Patriots Day with Mark Wahlberg, the video game adaptation Assassins Creed, and Martin Scorsese’s Silence with Andrew Garfield.
Video-on-Demand, what used to be known pay-per-view, is essentially a streaming rental service and has become one of the most popular home viewing choices for new movies. It is available through most digital cable and satellite systems. Most titles are also available through web-based VOD services like iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Flixster, and Google Play.
