FREE MOVIES AND TV FOR FRIDAY

WEEKEND RUMBLE

 

This week’s new free movies are coming out swinging. Pop some corn and grab your ringside seat to some mob vs. mob, man vs. demon, nunchuck vs. handgun grudge matches.

 

NEW THIS WEEK

 

 

More deadly than The Godfather. More infamous than Scarface. Less fictional than either. James “Whitey” Bulger ruled the Boston underworld with an iron fist, until some dirty dealings with the FBI changed the game forever. Black Mass chronicles the life and times of a flesh-and-blood urban legend.

 

 

Just like Roger Murtaugh in Lethal Weapon, cynical exorcist Cotton Marcus is getting too old for this… stuff. His one last job is the literal assignment from hell, and he’ll have to outwit one seriously possessed farmer’s daughter if he wants to finish The Last Exorcism and make it to retirement.

 

 

Honor can only get you so far. With his studio, his marriage, and his reputation all hanging in the balance, one Brazilian jiu-jitsu master (Chiwetel Ejiofor) will have to choose between the path of least resistance and his own personal code. Either way, this Redbelt leaving everything on the mat.

 

 

Straight out the funkadelic 70s (sort of), it’s Black Dynamite! This high-kicking hero is here to clean up the streets, make the ladies swoon, and lovingly parody every possible trope and gag from the Blaxploitation films of yesterday, all while dressed in the finest luxury threads.

 

A DAY IN THE LIFE

 

Discover the hidden stories behind star athletes, visionary artists, and parking attendants (?) in these revealing documentaries.

 

 

Relive the madness with Linsanity, an in-depth look at the meteoric rise, on-and-off-court hurdles, and inspirational life story of basketball’s first Asian-American superstar, Jeremy Lin.

 

 

With their experimental techniques, contemporary subject matter, and daring directorial choices, Truffaut and Godard defined the French New Wave film movement. Two in the Wave explores their great successes, friendship, and eventual falling out as they pursued their personal visions of what film could be.

 

 

Managing the patrons and vehicles of a busy paid parking lot may not seem like much, but to this crew of Virginia attendants it offers the chance to wax philosophical, share small successes, and engage with humans in their most primal state (parking). The Parking Lot Movie contains unexpected multitudes.

 

FREE COLLECTIONS

 

 

Time to put away the toys, get everyone comfy on the couch, and relax with some great family favorites to Watch with the Kids. With fun-filled movies like My Dog Skip, Osmosis Jones, Dolphin Tale, and The Adventures of Pinocchio, there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy.

 

 

Looking for something a little out there? Mind Bending Sci-Fi standards like Lost in Space, Outbreak, and Hollow Man will have you dreaming of robots, aliens, invisible men, and other feats of speculative super-science.

 

We’ve got something to satisfy every cinematic craving. Check out the full menu with our complete free collection here.

NEW THIS WEEK: ACTION POINT, AMERICAN ANIMALS, AND MORE

PLUS RENTALS, TV, AND MOVIES STILL IN THEATERS

 

LIGHTS, CAMERA… ACTION!

 

Hold onto your hard hat: this week’s new releases are coming at you fast with an all-out onslaught of death-defying stunts, reality-defying special effects, and boredom-defying thrills.

 

 

Ever wonder what would happen if the guys from Jackass got to run their own low-budget, low-safety theme park? Wonder no more, friend. Action Point owner D.C. (Johnny Knoxville) will do whatever it takes to keep and his relationship with his daughter open for business, even if that means a few crash landings and bear attacks.

 

 

From the maker of the mind-bending documentary The Imposter, American Animals is a half doc/half docudrama following four young men in pursuit of  $12,000,000 and something to do. Stealing their school’s rare book collection from under the nose of the watchful librarian won’t be easy, but it definitely beats learning the dewy decimal system.

 

 

We’ve seen zombies get sliced, shot, splattered, and spewed, but have we ever tried talking to them? (Maybe they have feelings too.) One man who can see and talk to dead people will have to conduct some up-close and personal interrogations if he’s ever going to locate Patient Zero and save the world.

 

 

War is hell, and it doesn’t end with coming home. When an army private returns from Iraq without the comrade he swore to protect, he’ll have to answer to the army, the government, and the family of his fallen friend about what he witnessed among The Yellow Birds.

 

 

Living well is the best revenge, but hunting down your wife’s killers with the help of an ass-kicking, ninja-flipping AI chip implanted in your spine can be very satisfying too. Upgrade gives a whole new meaning to the term “self-driving.”

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Defeating Thanos and his gauntlet is going to take every super soldier, Asgardian, Wakandan, sorcerer, and raccoon (/rabbit) that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer, and even that may not be enough. Cross (don’t snap!) your fingers and hope for the best in Avengers: Infinity War.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

When a departed loved one reaches out from the other side, it would be rude not to answer. But when demonic forces start tapping into the call, you may want to hang up before it’s too late. You wouldn’t want to wind up like the family in Along Came the Devil.

 

 

Elizabeth Harvest’s new scientist husband seems like a dream come true: he’s kind, rich, and his only request is that she never, ever goes into his secret room. Wait, what? Secrets are no fun, but curiosity may kill more than just the cat in this Bluebeard-esque tale.

 

TV (SPOILERS AHEAD)

 

 

There’s no place like Gilead, and that’s not really a good thing. With a baby on the way and an ever-shrinking list of options to better her position, Offred must take action to change her fate or be pulled under by sinister tides in The Handmaid’s Tale: Season 2.

 

 

Book a date with BOOK CLUB – AVAILABLE IN UP TO 4K + HDR

FIFTY SHADES OF GREAT

 

 

The reviews are in: Book Club is a sweet and saucy smash that audiences can’t put down. Loosely based on the writers/producers’ own experience sending copies of the book, Fifty Shades of Grey, to their mothers, Book Club is a laugh-filled love letter to friendship, romance, and finding adventure at every stage of life.

 

Plus watching Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen hang out, share secrets, and eat ice cream is just plain fun.

 

WIN EXCLUSIVE SWAG TO SHOW-OFF AT YOUR BOOK CLUB

 

 

Now that Book Club is available on Vudu (in up to 4K UHD), we’re having our own little release party by offering up some ultra-rare swag, including a framed poster signed by all four stars.

 

Other awesome prizes include a movie-exclusive t-shirt, windbreaker, and book bag, and all you have to do is send us a picture of your favorite book for a chance at the loot. Great literature is meant to be shared, so whether it’s a canonical classic or guilty pulp pleasure, upload your pick here and you’ll be entered to win.

 

 

Grab some friends, some wine, and maybe a nice cheese plate, and check out Book Club ASAP.

 

 

FREE MOVIES AND TV FOR FRIDAY

QUALITY AND QUANTITY

 

The best things in life are free, and that includes premium movies and TV. Check out the latest top-tier titles joining our library of over 5,000 free movies and shows.

 

NEW THIS WEEK

 

 

We’ve seen real-life Ghost Hunters, Cake Bosses, and even Dr. Pimple Poppers on reality TV, but what about a fame-hungry showboat and a grizzled veteran cop teaming up to clean up Los Angeles. Anything goes when it’s Showtime.

 

 

The psychiatrist has become the patient. Waking up confined in the very hospital where she treats others, Dr. Grey (Halle Berry) struggles to unravel the disturbing events that got her there—and she may not like what she finds in Gothika.

 

 

After all the pokes, pranks, and nyuknyuknyuks, the long-retired Three Stooges must decide if the world is ready for their return. A poignant recollection of their humble, slap-happy beginnings and off-stage highs and lows reveals the answer.

 

 

When it comes to ancient curses and vengeful spirits of the damned, what goes around comes around. As the people around her start dropping like flies, Karen (Sarah Michelle Gellar) must go back to the beginning to break the cycle of The Grudge.

MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

 

Still waters run deep in these shocking, engaging, and inspiring explorations of what we miss with first impressions.

 

 

A melancholy family reunion turns straight-up miserable when the black sheep son accuses his renowned psychiatrist father of experimenting on him and his adopted siblings. Discerning truth from fiction means unearthing all the family secrets, and everyone’s ready to dig in Altered Minds.

 

 

Old friends, new problems. Three Yorkshire couples are shaken up by the imminent death of a mutual friend, but planning around his final days reveals much more about their own relationships than it does about the actual Life of Riley.

 

 

Rap’s legacy of cutting lyrical finesse and acrobatic flows is no secret, but freestyling, rap’s improvisational cousin, doesn’t always get the same shine. Watch a who’s who of hip hop tastemakers boom, beatbox, and battle their way through the history of this unique art form in Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme.

FREE COLLECTIONS

 

 

Blood, sweat, tears, family, friendship, government secrets… you name it. It’s all on the line when it comes to high-intensity Action Thrillers like Three Kings, Bobby Z, Johnny Mnemonic, and Demolition Man.

 

 

Love stinks, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy some good Rom Coms. Whether you’re settled down, ready to mingle, or all broken up, you can’t help but laugh, cry, and cheer for Over Her Dead Body, Sleepless in Seattle, Woo, Flipped, and more.

 

That’s not all! Actually, not even close. Scope out the rest of our full free collection here.
