Make room on the couch, we’ve got a party crasher

 

 

It’s not exactly the apocalypse, but you can still ride along with the Valkyrie. That’s right, the amazing and talented Tessa Thompson will be joining us via Twitter (we WISH it was in person) and getting in on all the fun by answering some of your questions.

 

You can even start sending in your questions now by tweeting us using #VuduViewingParty.

 

 

So if you thought that the Viewing Party couldn’t get any better, you were wrong. But in a good way. So tell your friends that a guest is coming and that they should be sure to RSVP and join us tonight at 6:00 pm (PT).

 

Get ready, get excited, and get the movie! And don’t forget, if your setup is UHD ready, be sure to watch Thor: Ragnarok today in up to 4K + HDR.

 

 

Watch Murder on the Orient Express

Plus, be entered into a drawing for a movie prop prize pack

Don’t miss this gravy train

 

 

Agatha Christie fans: We’ve got your ticket for a first-class ride on the Orient Express. Purchase Murder on the Orient Express and be entered into a drawing for a mysterious movie prop prize pack!

 

Get the movie anytime between now and March 1st, and we’ll throw your name in with all the other suspects…err passengers riding along for the drawing. Don’t worry if you pre-ordered, you’re eligible too. We wouldn’t leave any hardcore fans at the station.

 

Fans can win one of two prize packs that include replicas of Hercule Poirot’s cane and case, A Tale of Two Cities book prop, blueprints, one perfectly timed four-minute egg (don’t worry it’s rubber), and a copy of the telegraph that led to Mr. Poirot’s journey on the Orient Express.

 

Full rules here.

 

All aboard for a killer time

 

This reimagining of Agatha Christie’s most recognized and prolific mysteries brings together an all-star cast that includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pheiffer, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, and more.

 

So get ready for a great ride that steams ahead with an amazing cast, rich visuals, and of course, Mr. Poirot’s peerless mustache.

 

 

Are you ready to (Ragna)rok?

Join us for the Thor: Ragnarok Viewing Party this Friday

We’re having the viewing party of the year and you’re invited

 

Never mind that it’s the first viewing party of the year, just know it’s a big one. Like Chris Hemsworth’s biceps big. Like Hulk big. We’re partying to Thor: Ragnarok and we want you and all your friends to join. Mark your calendars, it’s going down this Friday, February 23 at 6:00pm (PT).

 

Ain’t no party like a Vudu party

 

If you haven’t joined us for a #VuduViewingParty, you don’t know what you’re missing. Imagine if you could fit all of your friends, and your friends’ friends, in your living room so you can all geek out to a great movie – and win awesome prizes for proving your Odin-like trivia knowledge. Yeah, that’s what it’s like. Welcome to the Vudu Viewing Party.

 

Come for the movie, stay for the prizes

 

Joining the Vudu Viewing Party is easy. (You don’t even need to travel anywhere by wormhole.)

 

First, you’ll need to get Thor: Ragnarok. If you’ve pre-ordered it, great. If not, what are you waiting for? It’s only, like, an amazing movie. And when you get it on Vudu, you can watch it in up to 4K + HDR (Dolby Vision & HDR10) with Dolby Atmos sound. That’s right, Thor, Loki, Hulk, Hela – all in the incredible detail and color of 4K + HDR. (FInd out if your equipment is ready.)

 

Then you’ll need to RSVP for the party and follow us on “the Twitters” @vudufans. The next step is the hardest part – waiting until Friday at 6:00pm (PT).

 

That’s the time we’ll all start watching the movie (synchronize Swatches!). Then just watch and enjoy! We’ll be chatting it up on Twitter all the while with fun facts, trivia, and prizes!

 

Contest of Champions

 

In addition to interacting with other Vudu and Thor fans, the other great part of the Vudu Viewing Party is the prizes. And prizes there are plenty. We’ve got a Quinjet full of prizes so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to win something, and you won’t need to square off against Hulk or Skurge to do so.

 

What are the prizes? Oh, just little things like collectibles, Ragnarok LEGO Sets, life-size movie standees, autographed art books, a vintage Stan Lee signed comic, a Roku, a PlayStation bundle with Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, a 4K TV, and MORE. No big deal.

 

So get the movie, join the viewing party, and rock out with your Mjolnir out this Friday at 6:00pm (PT).

 

Breathe extra life into family night with Coco

Watch now on Vudu in up to 4K +HDR

 

Coco is a beautifully mesmerizing animated tale that follows a young boy as he discovers the stories of his ancestor’s and their traditions during his journey to becoming a great musician. It’s a story about music, adventure, and of course, family – making it the perfect choice to breathe life into family movie night.

 

It’s smart, vibrant, intelligent, and wonderfully warm. It’ll make you cry, it’ll make you laugh, and it’ll even make you do both at the same time. So be sure to add it to your collection and watch tonight!

 

But what kind of help would we be if we didn’t offer you some great ideas and fun activities to help you make your family movie night as fun and colorful as the movie itself!

 

 

First, you’ll want to get Coco on Vudu. (Can’t have a movie night without the movie!) It’s available in up to 4K with support for both HDR10 and Dolby Vision so you know you’ll be watching it in the best quality possible on your device.

 

Watch Coco with cocoa

 

Now it’s time to get movie-ready with the help of the wonderful folks over at Brit + Co by building a hot “coco” bar!

Create a colorful Hot “Coco” Bar inspired by Disney•Pixar’s Coco!

 

1. Create your hot “Coco” bar using colorful hot beverage pitchers, sprinkle-covered mugs, DIY pom-pom stir sticks and toppings galore (and perhaps a few figurines and plush toys from the film!)

 

2. Make sprinkle-rimmed mugs by dipping mugs in melted white chocolate and adding sprinkles

 

3. Let the chocolate fully dry before serving.

 

4. Create the colorful cocoa by adding tiny drops of food coloring to white chocolate hot cocoa.

 

5. Deck out your cocoa using colorful marshmallows, whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup

 

6. Enjoy!

 

Toppings to include: whipped cream, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, marshmallows, rock candy and pom-pom stir sticks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dia de los Decorations

 

Once everyone has some cocoa, it’s time to add some flair and ambiance to your movie theater. Print out the activity sheets and make your room as colorful as the movie. You’ll find over 20 pages of coloring sheets, games and activities, and even more crafts to create and decorate!

Don’t lose your head

 

There are lots of fun activities, but don’t lose track of the big finale – the movie! So grab your special seat on the couch, sit back, and enjoy this magical movie.

 

 

Make this Valentine’s extra red

Or should we say – make Valentine’s even Grey-ter

 

Sure there’s Red Red Wine, Lady in Red, and even Red Blooded Woman. But we think John Mellencamp said it best when he said, “Sometimes love don’t feel like it should. You make it, hurt so good,” – especially when it comes to the Fifty Shades series.

 

That’s right. It’s Valentine’s Day, and we’re pretty sure Hallmark didn’t have the Fifty Shades trilogy in mind when they popularized the holiday. But we ain’t mad.

 

We’re also not mad that Fifty Shades Freed is now available for pre-order on Vudu.

 

And apparently, you ain’t mad either. Both Fifty Shades of Grey and the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, are rated 4-stars by the Vudu community. (Hey, don’t look at us, numbers don’t lie.)

 

So, don’t hold back. Just let go, free your inhibition, and admit that you don’t want to miss the climax of this wildly popular trilogy. Pre-order Fifty Shades Freed today. You’ll punish yourself if you don’t.

 

And if you haven’t seen the first two movies, there’s no better time than now to relinquish control and submit yourself to the power of the Fifty Shades movies.

 

Not that you need it, but here’s a little something extra to remind you where the series left off…and to get you in the mood – a behind the scenes clip from Fifty Shades Darker.
