New This Week – Don’t be no jive turkey edition

Spooks, crooks, and cooks

 

Turkey day is upon us. Good for friends, family, football, and food. Not so good for our large-bodied fowl friends. (Deep thought of the day – the sound we attribute to turkeys, gobble, is also the name of the action we have for eating them. #mindblown)

 

But just because you need to play the perfect host and prepare a perfect meal for a houseful of hungry people (no pressure), it doesn’t need to be a stressful holiday. Especially when you can keep everyone entertained (and out of your hair) with Vudu!

 

Watch American Assassin on Vudu today! #pewpew

 

Create a diversion (classic clandestine tactic pro-tip) with the action flick American Assassin. Watch Michael Keaton hang up his Vulture wings and open up an assassin school for spooks, so that new recruit Dylan O’Brien can light it up.

 

Despicable Me is available now on Vudu! Bananas, we know.

 

Or if the little ones are running amok, let them go bananas with Despicable Me 3. It’s got a nice family theme with Gru discovering a long lost twin brother, Dru – not to mention everyone’s favorite Minions.

 

Get wined and dined on The Trip to Spain, now available on Vudu

 

And if you’ve got too many cooks in the kitchen, get them focused on other food matters with The Trip to Spain. Watch comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon check out breathtaking locales and to-die-for cuisine while on a hilarious culinary road trip through Spain.

 

Are we seriously not doing "phrasing" anymore?

 

We’ve even got several TV season bundles for binging, while you’re binging. Choose the vintage that pairs best with your menu: American Horror Story (S1-6), Archer (S1-8), The Americans (S1-5), and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Complete series).

 

Or go anti-Thanksgiving for free with the horror classics ThanksKilling and ThanksKilling 3, showing now on Movies On Us.

Extra gravy

 

All the sugar from the pumpkin pie got you jittery? Could be your Spidey-sense tingling for the Spider-man: Homecoming Limited Edition Gift Box, exclusively at Walmart. Yes, it’s limited edition. Meaning, there aren’t that many. Meaning, head over to Walmart.com to pre-order yours now for $34.96 with free shipping (ships Dec 5th from Walmart).

It’s got a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack with digital HD copy, an exclusive Funko POP vinyl figure, a Classic Spider-man Comic Covers book, two pairs of Spider-man socks, and a collectible enamel pin. You can check out an unboxing here.

 

New movies not in theaters

 

Channel a hipster (I saw that movie before it was a movie) and watch these movies before their theatrical release. How? Because we’re just extra.

 

Get criminal with Hangman and watch Al Pachino and Karl Urban (damn it Jim, this time I’m not a doctor) chase down a notoriously vicious serial killer with ties to Pachino’s past.

 

Watch Crooked House before it's in theaters! How? That's an Agatha Christie worthy mystery...

 

Or get classically criminal with Crooked House. This film adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s most twisted tales is packed with suspense and stars – including Glen Close, Christina Hendricks, and Gillian Anderson.

 

New rentals. No turkeys.

 

Rent The Hitman's Bodyguard today on Vudu. It's triple-a rated executive laughs.

 

Watch Birth of the Dragon, a story inspired by the battle between Bruce Lee and Shaolin Monk Wong Jack Man. Get between a hitman and a triple-a rated executive protection agent as they go head-to-head in the comedy action hit, The Hitman’s Bodyguard. Or be visually amazed by Luc Besson’s (The Fifth Element, Taken, and Lucy) Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

 

Happy Thanksgiving Vudu fans!

Guess who’s back, back again. Gru is back, tell a friend. Guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back….

 

Despicable Me 3 is now available on Vudu in up to 4K +HDR. That’s right, Gru, the girls, and the Minions are back for a third adventure – and it’s just as hilarious and family-friendly as the previous ones. So, take a break from hosting and relax with Despicable Me 3.

 

We’ve put together a few tips to help make family movie night quick and easy (and fun) – because we know the tryptophan is already kicking in…

Gru + Dru + You (and your family)

 

If you haven’t already, pick up Despicable Me 3. (Kind of important for movie night.)

 

Then, since movies need snacks, have the kids – and even the kids at heart – make some Minions snack holders. (via allmommywants.com)

 

Next, you’ll want to sharpen your mind for maximum villainy with a crossword and other fun games.

 

Now that you’re almost ready to watch, why not watch in Minion-vision with these easy to make Minions goggles. (via raisingwhasians.com)

Vudu launches HDR10 support

 

Vudu launches HDR10 support

 

We’re expanding HDR movies to millions more devices

 

At Vudu, our goal has always been to bring you the highest quality movie & TV experience across as many devices and platforms as possible. One measure of our commitment to quality is our support of the enhanced dynamic range, brightness, and vibrancy of HDR technology, beginning two years ago with Dolby Vision HDR.

 

We’re excited to announce the addition of HDR10 support, which brings the color depth and richness of HDR to more devices than ever before. Our support of HDR10, which is quickly becoming a common feature on more and more 4K TVs and streaming devices, means more people can enjoy HDR and the best possible cinematic experience at home.

 

Enjoy HDR across more devices

 

Now, you can watch in 4K + HDR10 on compatible Samsung and LG TVs, Xbox One S and X, and Roku 4K and Nvidia Shield devices. So, if you bought a new 4K TV or streaming device within the past year, you very likely have HDR-ready equipment. (See a complete list here.)

 

With complete HDR support across both HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats, Vudu customers have more device choices from which to enjoy the latest in digital video technology. Users will automatically get the format that is compatible with their 4K + HDR TV or streaming device for the best possible picture.

 

How do I get started?

 

Once you confirm that you have a Vudu-certified 4K + HDR enabled TV or device, and are using the latest Vudu app, you’re ready to go.

 

HDR is available on a growing list of 4K UHD titles. At launch, we have over 36 movies to which we have added HDR10 support, and you can check out the current collection of 4K UHD titles here.

 

We’re working toward bringing HDR to as many of our 4K UHD movies as possible, and we will continue to roll them out as we receive them.

What’s new this week, a blonde bombshell, and free movies

 

The (Viking) world will be yours

 

Yeah, yeah, we know what you’re thinking – it’s the History Channel. But let’s not forget that history is filled with drama, violence, and lots of other things that make great TV.  This popular series tells the tale of historical hero Ragnar Lothbrok and his rise to King of the Vikings with some very interesting (and bloody) storylines.

 

Right now, you can get a special “box set” of the first four seasons for 66% off, and pre-order season five. It’s time to Viking up.

 

 

What’s the deal with Seinfeld?

 

The show about nothing is on Vudu. That’s right. The entire series – man hands, doing the opposite, being master of your domain, yada yada, the puffy shirt, muffin tops, Newman!, and more – is all here. So while there’s no soup for you, there’s definitely lots of Seinfeld for you.

 

 

 

This rental is the bomb

 

If you’re looking for explosive action, Atomic Blonde delivers. Rent this hard-hitting action flick that pits Charlize Theron against…well, basically everybody. Think John Wick, except now he is a she and her name is Lorraine Broughton – and her bullet count (and body count) are everything we’d expect from an action flick this nuclear. Here comes the boom indeed.

 

 

Watch free movies – Fight for Justice Collection

 

Justice is worth fighting for, but you know what you don’t have to fight for? Free movies. Watch Kurt Russell solve a quadruple-homicide in Dark Blue, Jean-Claude Van Damme in Universal Soldier, a one-eyed Jeff Bridges in a great remake of True Grit, Dwayne Johnson rock his hometown in Walking Tall, and a bunch of other great movies for free.

 

 

 

You got five on it – Spend $25, Get $5 Back

The weekend is here, so here’s another reason to watch more movies

 

It’s November! That means Thanksgiving, falling back from Daylight Savings Time, and PSLs (well pumpkin spiced everything it seems nowadays).

 

And in case you hadn’t heard, it also means getting $5 movie credit next month when you spend $25 this month.

 

Simply spend a total of $25 before the end of this month, and come December we’ll slide right into your DMs with $5 movie credit. Think of it as your reward for surviving Daylight Savings Time. A fall back kickback, if you will.

 

About 150,000 reasons to get this deal

 

I mean, let’s be honest. Out of our over 150,000 titles, there are probably a few movies or TV shows you were eyeing – maybe Despicable Me 3 or American Assassin. Why not pick them up and get a little something back? Or get make your dollar stretch even further by shopping any of our sales and doubling down on deals. Savings and $5 movie credit? Give me a big slice of that pie.

 

Pick up a Jack Reacher bundle, a Ride Along bundle, or some classics with a Mean Girls/Clueless bundle (on Fridays we buy bundles), or any of these other 2-movie bundles for under $15 and you’re more than halfway there.

 

We’ve also got a super Marvel Sale going on that’ll put you on your way to $25 in spend. Because after that, it’s just a couple rentals or maybe something from the $6.99 Monthly Deals sale (choose from nearly 200 movies) – and you’re golden.

 

There are some restrictions. Any credits you use won’t count toward your $25 in minimum spend and tax doesn’t either. (Yeah, life isn’t always fair #firstworldproblems) Also, pre-orders will only count if they’re charged in November, limit one per account, yada, yada, yada. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
