Every Movie in Theaters, On Demand and Streaming Through the End of 2020

This was the year without a summer movie season. Amid the still-ongoing coronavirus pandemic, movies theaters around the world shuttered their doors and studios pushed their release dates over and over. Then there was Tenet, the would-be savior of cinemas, arriving in the final days of summer to lure moviegoers back into reopened theaters.
Alas, Tenet neither proved to be a boffo box office exemplar -- at least Stateside, where most major markets are still closed -- nor showed people are rushing to return to theaters for masked, socially distant screenings. So, the blockbuster postponements and shuttling of titles to PVOD continues on into fall for another strange season at the movies. (Scroll on for a full calendar of release dates.)
Still, there are enough streaming and on demand titles set through 2021 that Fall Movie Season won't be completely without its traditional popcorn fare and awards season contenders. Plus, there are a few titles guaranteed to be released this year that are worthy alternatives to your most-anticipated theatrical titles. For example:
Not coming out in 2020: Black Widow Definitely coming out: Ava (on demand Sept. 25)
While we await our return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- and the even longer-awaited Black Widow standalone movie -- this year will not be without one redheaded assassin whose black ops agency turns on her (played in Ava by Jessica Chastain).
Not coming out in 2020: West Side Story Definitely coming out: The Prom (on Netflix on Dec. 11)
