Today ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ swings your way–two weeks before Blu-ray/DVD release AND with a VUDU-exclusive bonus feature.

Praised for its top tier cast and outstanding special effects, the second installment in Sony’s reboot reunited director Marc Webb with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and brought in Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ grossed a massive $708 million worldwide and features enough action, humor and heart to make it a worthy successor to the 2012 film. It also has a shocking ending that will make the third movie (currently scheduled for 2018) a must-see event.

 

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ is available to watch instantly on VUDU and includes a VUDU-only bonus feature. Own it individually or as part of a two-movie bundle.

Noah + Bonus Features: Catch it early on VUDU

Starting today, you can own and watch ‘Noah’ two weeks before DVD and Blu-ray release.

Director Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan, The Wrestler) gritty, action-packed interpretation of the biblical story of Noah’s Ark earned $359 million globally and received stellar reviews for its visuals and actor performances. Watch it today along with nearly an extra hour’s worth of bonus features!

 

NoahNoah is more than just a builder. He’s an action hero.

Russell Crowe stars as Noah, a man compelled by a greater power to build a massive ark in anticipation of catastrophic floods that will wipe out humanity. Similar to the biblical tale, the ark is used to shelter earth’s animal. However, to add more gravitas (and content) to the story, the film puts heavy focus on Noah’s own perspectives toward the worthiness of humanity.

Noah 2Emma Watson’s character adds romance and is a key plot point

Unlike the passing mention in the Bible, Noah’s family is a key part of the film. This gives the movie additional star power in the form of Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman and Anthony Hopkins (as Noah’s wife, son and grandfather, respectively), as well as Emma Watson–playing a young orphan and love interest for one of Noah’s sons.

Impressive set pieces and special effects helped make Noah a hit

To help achieve Aronofsky’s vision, the filmmakers poured in a $125 million dollar budget, which allowed for filming in the sweeping landscapes of Iceland, the addition of some fantastical creatures and impressive special effects–especially important in the visualization of the spectacularly-designed ark.

Noah was well-received by critics and has a 76% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Future Trends: Simplicity, Comfort and VUDU

khenely | May 12, 2014 in New Releases,VUDU | Comments (0)

Celeste
Can films forecast the future? When it comes to VUDU, perhaps so.

Celeste and Jesse Forever” is a 2012 romantic dramedy about the bittersweet relationship between a professional trends forecaster, Celeste (Rashida Jones), and her unemployed, soon-to-be ex-husband, Jesse (Andy Samberg). In the first three minutes of the film, not only are we introduced to Celeste and Jesse, but we learn a little more about Celeste’s professional (and maybe personal) opinions on the future, which happily include VUDU.

As Celeste and Jesse drive through downtown Los Angeles in their Prius singing along to the song “Littlest Things” by Lilly Allen, Celeste receives a call. It’s work, and she has to quickly provide a sound byte to the Los Angeles Times. As Jesse lights up a cigarette, Celeste says into her cellphone: ‘This year all trends will head towards simplicity and comfort. Things like Roku, VUDU, cookbooks and casual wear will see a spike in the market.’ Right before she hangs up she asks Jesse in a whisper if she can have a drag. He then hands her the cigarette and she throws it out the window–since smoking, obviously, isn’t trendy in movies anymore.

Rashida Jones said in an interview that she, along with her co-star Will McCormac, wrote the script four years prior to its production in 2011, which makes Celeste’s prediction especially prophetic. In 2008 VUDU only existed as a limited number of set-top boxes, but has since grown by leaps and bounds into full-feature video-on-demand service available on millions of devices with millions of users that rely on us for convenience, simplicity and, of course, great movies like “Celeste and Jesse Forever.
