Build yourself a family movie night

Or maybe you’re avoiding the lines this weekend. Well then, maybe you should find the ninja within ya and assemble the family for movie night with The Lego Ninjago Movie.

 

It slices, dices, and cuts its way through any “I’m bored” or “there’s nothing to do” attack.

Sure, it’s made for the kids, but this movie will sneak up on you like, well, a ninja, with self-awareness and bold humor that’ll keep adults entertained as well.

 

 

Pre-order American Made and get the soundtrack free

Pre-order American Made on Vudu today and get the soundtrack free!

Hear that? That’s the sound of an amazing offer landing at your feet

 

They say truth is stranger than fiction. And we’re giving you a double dose of it when you pre-order American Made.

 

Truth 1: Yes, you really get a digital download of the soundtrack free with your pre-order. Just be sure to get your pre-order in before 12/19, otherwise, it’s just an order. And without the “pre,” it just means you’ll be without the soundtrack.

 

Truth 2: Yes, American Made is based off a true story. Ok, so more or less of a true story. We may never actually know because, you know, the CIA. But you still definitely get the American Made soundtrack for free.

 

The soundtrack is a cornucopia of 70’s classics by Linda Ronstadt, The Allman Brothers, and Walter Murphy. Don’t know Walter Murphy? You should know his funk-tastic disco remix of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony – trust us, you’ve heard it. It also includes three tracks for the movie’s original score by Christophe Beck (Frozen, Ant-Man, Edge of Tomorrow).

 

The movie itself is an equally high-flying action spectacle starring Tom Cruise as real-life drug-smuggler and informant Barry Seal. And despite the creative liberties that were taken to make the movie, well, more creative and entertaining, there is enough truth peppered throughout the movie to make it stranger than all its fiction.

 

So pre-order American Made today and get the soundtrack free. We’ll send you an email with a redemption code on 12/19 when the movie is released.

 

And if you’re wondering what’s fact or fiction, you can do some fact-checking here (somewhat spoiler alert).

Bonus trivia

This isn’t the first time the name Barry Seal has graced the big screen. Dennis Hopper portrayed him in Doublecrossed, and Michael Pare played the part of Seal in The Infiltrator.

Watch Dunkirk, Flatliners, and Lego Ninjago

New rentals – Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Detroit, and free movies

Life’s a beach

Watch Dunkirk on Vudu today!

Christopher Nolan takes on WWII and wins big with this amazing story of the Battle of Dunkirk. If you’ve been surfing past the History Channel, here’s why you should watch this movie:

 

Some 400,000 some British and Allied troops were trapped between an advancing German army and the Strait of Dover – so close to the safety of Brittan they could literally see it, but with no way to get there. If the rescue effort hadn’t succeeded, Brittan might have surrendered to Hitler.

 

Watch Dunkirk on Vudu today!

 

Nolan covers the story from top to bottom, literally. He weaves together the harrowing plight of soldiers on land and sea, and pilots in the air for a complete sensory experience.

 

Watch Dunkirk on Vudu today!

 

It’s not all Hollywood theatrics. While some creative liberties are taken, the story focuses primarily on what it was like to be there that day and he remains pretty true to how it was. Add Dunkirk to your collection and watch instantly.

 

Back from the dead

 

Flatliners is available now on Vudu!

 

Is it ironic that a movie about coming back from being dead, is itself a movie that’s being resurrected from the dead? This reboot of the 1990 film of the same name is headlined by Ellen Page as the lead med student with a fascination with experiencing death. And they say you only live once. Pshh, what does science know? Apparently nothing, so “just relax and enjoy the experience” of Flatliners.

 

A tale of two ninjas

 

Watch like a warrior, a Wolf Warrior! Get it on Vudu today.

 

Ok, Wolf Warrior 2 isn’t a ninja, but this movie is a beast in every sense. It has a ton of martial arts action (think The Raid) and grossed $810 million in China during its first 5 weeks. So, you know you’re in for a howling good time. So gather the pack and get ready for action. And check out the first Wolf Warrior if you haven’t seen it.

 

Ninja, you better recognize...that The Lego Ninjago Movie is now on Vudu!

 

And apparently, kids love ninjas too. Go figure. That’s why we’ve got the wildly popular The Lego Ninjago Movie! It’s a little different than The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie since there’s already an established storyline from the cartoon series, but it’s still got all the fun and creative elements that Lego movies have been so good at delivering. So get your Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on and watch now.

 

Rentals maketh movie night

 

Get shaken and stirred with Kingsman: The Golden Circle, now for rent on Vudu

 

The long-anticipated sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle drops a shot of whiskey into your afternoon tea with the addition of the Statesman, the American cousin of the Kingsman. New friends, new enemies, new ways of killing the bad guys, and (spoiler alert) Elton John. No, really. Get in on the action and watch today.

 

Watch you gonna do when they come for you...and you aren't watching Detroit on Vudu?

 

You can also now rent Detroit, the latest film from Kathryn Bigelow that follows a police raid during the infamous 12th Street Riot in 1967. Starring John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), this drama is non-stop tension and intensity.

 

Go storm chasing with Depth Perception, available now on Vudu

 

If you’re hankering for a bit of sun or snow, we’ve got you covered with both Paradigm Lost, a beautiful surfing documentary resulting from a three-year search for the world’s best waves, and Depth Perception, which follows world-renowned boarder Travis Rice as he and his friends search for the best pow on Earth. Consider them an early gift.

 

Watch free action movies

 

If you like free action as much as we do, you’ll love our Classic Action Hero collection on Movies On Us.

 

Watch JCVD in action when you watch Universal Soldier for free on Movies On Us

 

Watch classics like Universal Soldier (I have to cool down now), The Alamo (fun fact, we remember it because we lost, not because we won), Bandits (they rob banks, but steal hearts), The Great Train Robbery (Sean Connery as Pierce, Edward Pierce), and many more – all for free on Movies On Us.

 

 

 

 

Vudu Honored as a Home Entertainment & Digital Leader by Variety

We went to Hollywood and got an award

 

Yeah, so that happened. While other people were goin’ up on a Tuesday, we were getting down in LA and being honored as a Variety Press Play: Home Entertainment and Digital Hall of Fame inductee. That’s right, Vudu is officially famous and we have an award to prove it.

 

The Variety Press Play gala recognizes industry-leading executives and companies for their contributions to digital entertainment and their impact on the future direction of film, TV, music, VR, and more.

 

Vudu was honored for the leadership role our service plays in encouraging consumer adoption of transactional digital entertainment by providing the highest quality content along with exceptional value and convenience.

 

Aside from the honor of being recognized for our dedication to delivering complete access to digital movies & TV anytime, anywhere, on nearly any device, it was also a fun night out hobnobbing with other industry leaders.

 

And because we’re still reeling from all the excitement, we wanted to share a few moments from last night with you.

 

 

Highlight of the night? Getting the award! Here’s Jeremy Verba, VP and GM, Vudu & Connected Home, receiving the award, and what he had to say about the honor:

 

“It’s a technology not for technology itself, not for innovation itself, but rather for getting the customer what they want. And what do they want? They want their content wherever they want it, however, they want it and on the device they want it. One of the things that Vudu’s really focused on is being ubiquitous, being on all the devices, being on all the operating systems, all the various cloud-based systems.”

 

 

The event was held at the beautiful Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills (that’s 90210 for those in the know). And we’re not saying they were trying to give us a little extra, but that looks an awful lot like Vudu blue. We’re just saying.

 

 

Oh, an award? We were just told there’d be food. And we gotta say, these Hollywood types eat pretty well.

 

 

We’re kind of a big deal now. You better recognize. Just kidding. Don’t worry, we’re still all about you, our Vudu fans. We won’t let this (semi) fame go to our heads.

 

We think one of our team members summed the night up best:

 

“Being in Silicon Valley, sometimes we feel more like a tech company than an entertainment company. Being at this event, with all the entertainment companies and studios, made us really feel that as much as we are a tech company, we are also an entertainment company. And getting the award proved that we are really making an impact in the entertainment industry.”

 

So THANK YOU, Vudu fans, for trusting us, believing in us, and helping to make us who we are. We promise to continue to always to do our best for you.

And if the young ones (or the young at heart) are looking for a movie, then…it’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights. It’s time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight – well, The Muppets Christmas Carol. The gang is back with a special 20th Anniversary Edition that includes all-new audio commentary from your favorite Muppets, a sing-along, a look at Christmas all over the world, and much more.

You're in luck, watch Logan Lucky today on Vudu!

 

The holidays are a busy time, so why not relax with Logan Lucky, a Steven Soderbergh heist movie that doesn’t take place in a casino; or Tulip Fever, a story of love and betrayal set in 17th century Amsterdam.

 

Stop and watch Tulip Fever on Vudu today!

 

Too busy? No problem. You’ve got 30 days to start your movie before your rental period begins. So, finish decorating the tree. Wrap those presents. Don’t worry, your rental will be waiting for you.

Movies you won’t find on Blu-ray…

 

Because they’re still in theaters. But we’ve got them. How? That’s the magic of digital! (Watch it first, instantly!)

 

Watch 24 Hours To Live on Vudu, while it's still in theaters!

 

Watch 24 Hours to Live. It’s part John Wick and part Crank, with the adrenaline rush of both. Ethan Hawke gets even with the agency that ruined his life, then took his life, then brought him back to life.

 

Then on Friday, there’s Slumber, a horror thriller starring Maggie Q. It’s dark and creepy, and you definitely won’t be slumbering after you watch it.

 

Or go independent with Tribes of Palos Verdes, starring Jennifer Garner and Justin Kirk (APB, Weeds) as a couple who moves their family to glamourous Palos Verdes, CA, only to find it isn’t as great as they thought. Available to watch starting this Friday as well.
