International markets will follow in order to meet the increased demand for in-home entertainment options. The announcement was made March 19 by Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “With audiences largely unable to view films in theatrical release under current circumstances, we have decided to provide the alternative of early digital ownership of our currently released titles to people looking for great entertainment options,” said Emmerich. “So, while we remain big fans of the theatrical experience and hope audiences are able to return to cinemas in the near future, we understand that these are challenging times and offering this option simply makes sense.” The Way Back will be available to own in high definition and standard definition from select digital retailers, including Prime Video (U.S. only), Apple TV, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, DirecTV, FandangoNOW, PlayStation, Vudu, Microsoft Store on Xbox and Windows, and others for the suggested retail price of $19.99. As previously announced, Warner Bros. Pictures’ Birds of Prey is also available for digital download in the U.S. and Canada, with international markets to follow. The Way Back was directed by Gavin O’Connor and written by Brad Ingelsby. It stars Ben Affleck, Al Madrigal, Michaela Watkins, and Janina Gavankar, and follows an alcoholic construction worker who is recruited to become head coach of the basketball team at the high school he used to attend.
