Watch The Running Man free on Movies On Us

New to Movies On Us – January Update

 

It’s 2017! Year of The Running Man.

 

That’s right, the movie that’s set in the not so distant dystopian future of, well, now, is free with limited commercials on Movies On Us. And it’s as good, and wonderfully cheesy, as you remember.

We’ve also added a ton of other great titles for the New Year – 63 to be exact – so we’ve got a little something for everyone. Especially if you like free.

 

We’re talking classics like The Bad News Bears (warning, these bears swear), The Black Stallion, Stand and Deliver (what’s calcoolus?), and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. And cult classics like An American Werewolf in London and Tank Girl (you go girl) too!

 

Animation fans can enjoy titles like Doctor Strange, Ultimate Avengers: The Movie, The Invincible Iron Man, Plant Hulk, and more.

 

For even more childhood nostalgia, watch the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (I like turtles!), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze (go ninja, go ninja, go), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 (time travel turtle power).

 

If you’re feeling more intellectual, we’ve added March of the Penguins (just in time for winter) and IMAX films To the Arctic (ice is free too!) and Under the Sea (#science).  We’ve also added Good Hair (a hilarious documentary from Chris Rock), and The September Issue (Vouge! The magazine, not the dance).

 

Browse these and all our new additions to Movies On Us today!

 

As always, Movies On Us is completely free with limited commercials. Watch Movies On Us on your iOS and Android devices, smart TVs, gaming consoles, streaming devices, and more.

Ask an artist: Q&A session on animating Finding Dory

 

Recently, we gave Vudu viewers the opportunity to ask Jason Deamer, Character Art Director at Pixar, their questions about animating Finding Dory.

 

From animation technology to deciding how Dory’s parents looked, we had plenty of great questions. We’ve got a couple of the questions below, and you can check out the complete question and answer session here.

 

Q: Did you have to watch fish swimming in slow motion to figure out how to make their swimming so accurate and to capture all the details?

 

A: Yes. That’s exactly what we did. But we also combined that with what we learned from our fish expert, who also happened to be an expert in hydrodynamics. He explained to us exactly how fish move their fins and locomote through liquid.

 

Q: Do you get the script before you work on the design or do you just get a rough plot overview of the story?

 

A: It happens both ways. Sometimes I’ll get lucky and get script pages, and sometimes I’ll even have an audio performance from whomever they’ve had do the voice. In some cases, like say on “Ratatouille,” I just had the premise, which was – it’s going to be a rat in a kitchen, so draw rats.

 

Feeling inspired? You’ve still got time to draw your best Dory and win some great prizes. Enter by tweeting your drawing with #VUDUdoodle before 10/31/16. Learn more here.

March is Women’s History Month and VUDU is celebrating with a month long marathon of all our favorite strong female characters! Although women are frequently portrayed as stereotypes in movies, there are some inspiring movies that reveal the true strength of women. Every week we will post a different list of films that capture strong, empowered women. This week, we are highlighting films from the 1990’s and earlier. These films span many genres, but the women they depict never fail to inspire us.

Based on a true story, the women of the first female professional baseball league team up in order to save their baseball league.
