New this week: A Vudu exclusive, The Boss Baby, Free Fire, and Ghost in the Shell

A Vudu exclusive – Space Dogs: Family

 

 

Space Dogs? More like Space Dawwws. Space Dogs: Family just blasted off on Movies On Us with 13 episodes that are ready to orbit your kid’s heart. This series is exclusive to Vudu* and follows three cosmically cute pups looking to follow in their parents Space Dog paw prints.

 

We’ll be releasing 13 new, and exclusive, episodes each month through October, giving you access to the entire first season of this top-rated Russian kids program designed for children 2-7 years old.

 

The Boss Baby takes charge, Free Fire brings fireworks, and Ghost in the Shell comes out of her shell

 

 

Having July 4th fall on a Tuesday and missing out on a three-day weekend is kind of un-American if you ask us. But hey, what do we know? We’re just happy that there are some pretty good movies to watch.

 

Starting today, you can watch Alec Baldwin get to the (baby’s) bottom of things in the hilarious family comedy, The Boss Baby. He’s not large, but he’s in charge, and if he can’t wine and dine you into watching, he’ll just whine until you do.

 

 

Also releasing today, say hello to my little friend – Free Fire. This explosive movie is a powder keg of action and brings its own fireworks show to your Fourth of July party. The brass flies, some people die, and you might never see a shootout like this again.

 

 

On Friday, ScarJo gets robo in Ghost in the Shell. (Well, full-body prosthesis augmented-cybernetic human, but that doesn’t rhyme.) This live action version looks amazing, so we’re excited it’s available in 4K UHD. And because you’ve still got a few days, don’t miss out on the widely-acclaimed original anime.

 

If you hurry, you can even catch the special pre-order bundle of Ghost in the Shell and Aeon Flux. Get them for $19.99 SD or $24.99 HDX, and watch Aeon Flux immediately.

 

Get a date for (Spider-Man) Homecoming

 

With Spider-Man: Homecoming hitting theaters Friday, our Spidey-senses are tingling because it means that starting Friday, you’ll also be able to pre-order it on Vudu. So sling some web to catch the pre-order later this week, and rest easy knowing that it’ll show up in your My Vudu when it’s released.

 

Even more free(dom) for your Fourth   

 

 

There’s nothing more American than free. Free to be you and me. Freedom Fries. Free-range chicken. So throw another T-bone on the ‘cue because there’s about to be a whole lot more free movies to watch.

 

We’ve added 87 free movies to Movies On Us including the original Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze (nothing more American than high school students defeating a Russian invasion, and, duh, Patrick Swayze), The Bad News Bears (careful, it’s a little more colorful than modern kids movies), Hostel (just in case you’re abroad for the Fourth), the endless summer epic – Step Into Liquid, and much more.

 

 

*Every 13-episode monthly release is exclusive to Vudu for 30 days

 

 

 

We’ve been invaded by Space Dogs. And it’s adorbs.

Kid-friendly animated series, Space Dogs: Family, launches exclusively on Vudu! Watch it free today!

 

Just in time for the long weekend, we’re tail-waggingly excited to bring you galactically-big Vudu exclusive – the complete first season of the kid-friendly animated series, Space Dogs: Family.

 

Each month until October, you and your family can watch 13 new episodes this cosmically-fun animated series for free, with limited ads, on Movies On Us. That’s right, we’re launching 13 new episodes, every month, that you can watch all at once – all at no cost to you (this time 13 is a lucky number). The episodes run about five minutes each and are exclusive to Vudu* (so yeah, these Space Dogs have marked their territory).

 

Space Dogs, good for kids. Space itself, not so much.

 

Geared towards younger audiences of 2 – 7 year olds, each episode of Space Dogs: Family orbits around Bublik (Chewy), Dina, and Rex, the affable and adventurous pups of two revered Space Dogs, Kazbek and Belka, as they soar to atmospheric levels of cuteness with their fur-tastic out of this world adventures. (But not to infinity, that’s another franchise.)

 

Pinky in the air, it’s imported

 

The award-winning series is one of the top four most popular children’s brands in Russia (yeah, yeah, but hear us out), and has been popularized and adapted to 11 other languages. The American version is written by Mike Disa, known for his work on Casper, Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs Evil, and Pocahontas.

 

Thematically, the series focuses on friendship, support, acceptance, and curiosity about the world around us – as well as listening to one’s parents (wait, what, no way) – and incorporates them into each episode.

 

Anthropomorphically awwwwww

 

Each of the pups in the canine cast of characters has a relatable personality that follows the typical archetypes favored by animated series geared toward young audiences. Rex is inventive, shy, and curious – and as the eldest of the three, he takes responsibility for the other pups, Dina and Bublik. Dina is fun and cheerful, and a little reckless, but has the confidence to stand up for herself when needed. Bublik, the troublemaker (there’s always one), is part reckless, clumsy, and mischievous, but never gets discouraged and keeps all of their spirits up. (Reminds us of another chippy trio of furry siblings, if you know what we munk.)

 

Bonus mission to the moon

 

On top of the Space Dogs: Family series, we’ve got a special treat for you – no, it’s not a puppy (boo). JK it is (yay)! But not a real one (boo).

 

From now until July 4th, you can watch the animated feature film Space Dogs: Adventure to the Moon on us! That’s right, you rent, we’ll pay. Rent it today for $0 and take up to 30 days to watch it.

 

Watch now, we’re watching you

 

Just kidding, we’re totally not. But you can watch the Space Dogs: Family series, and the movie Space Dogs: Adventure to the Moon, anytime, anywhere (even now), on any device with the Vudu app. So forget the countdown, take one giant leap for your family, and commence liftoff today!

 

* Each set of 13 episodes is exclusive to Vudu for 30 days.

 

 

Drive home The Fate of the Furious, find The Lost City of Z, pre-order Baby Driver, and watch exciting new rentals

Travel from the concrete jungle to the Amazon

 

 

The Fate of the Furious is out of the garage and firing on all cylinders. (But if you’ve been reading the blog, you already know that.)

 

This high-octane thrill ride shifts into high gear with a Theatrical and Extended Directors Cut bundle for just $14.99 HDX. Add on extra cars, extra testosterone, extra destruction with Extras+ (get the movie, get Extras+ included), and you’ve got more add-ons than a SEMA show.

 

And while “X” doesn’t mark the spot for The Lost City of Z, we’ve got it on our map. Discover this movie based off true life explorer, Percival Fawcett, and claim it for yourself (or for the Queen), for $19.99 HDX.

 

Your rideshare driver don’t drive like this

 

One of the most anticipated films of the year, Baby Driver, is screeching through theaters, and you can pre-order it now on Vudu. It’s wickedly addictive and beyond insane driving will leave you with GTA flashbacks (but leave it for the games and the pros).

 

Summertime and the renting is good

 

 

We’ve got a bunch of new rentals you can check out and try on for size, including CHiPs (bet you can’t watch it just once), Saban’s Power Rangers (go go rent this movie, cuz it’s movie time), The Belko Experiment (protip: if you show up for work and there are armed guards, maybe go home), and Trainspotting 2 (choose life, and use it to watch this movie).

 

 

The Fate of the Furious gets tuned with Extras+, and get special Mix & Match savings bigger than a Hemi

Forget stock – Get a souped-up experience with Extras+ on your mobile device

 

Put the pedal to the metal and get a serious horsepower boost with Extras+ when you watch The Fate of the Furious on Vudu today!

 

Exclusive to Vudu, Extras+ is an exciting and fully-immersive, in-movie experience that brings you more details about your movie, as you’re watching the movie. It’s like Inception for your movie (braaaammm), and it brings you a more complete viewing experience than ever before. So get ready to shift into high gear, becuase it’s available on both the Theatrical version and the Extended Director’s Cut.

 

 

Watching with Extras+ is as simple as using paddle shifters – launch it with the Extras Plus button (Extras on iOS) and then go from full-screen movie mode (device in landscape/horizontal) to Extras+ mode (device in portrait/vertical) with a flick of the wrist. Shift back and forth instantly without hitting the brakes on the action.

 

Live life an Extras+ feature at a time

 

 

With Extras+ and The Fate of the Furious All Access Interactive Experience, you can virtually visit actual scene locations with Google Maps Places, learn more about the historical significance of shooting in Cuba, watch deleted scenes (what happens on set, doesn’t stay on set…), and much, much more.

 

 

You’ll even get a complete look across the entire franchise with the Timeline Tuner – an interactive movie carousel filled with videos, clips, and galleries from all eight Fast and Furious films.

 

Raindrops, drop tops, even more rides on top (of it all)

 

 

But we ain’t even done yet. We can’t really call it Extras+ if we don’t offer extra cars (get another one, and another one…). So, geek out with the Car Garage Carousel and get specs, commentary, pics, and video of all your favorite whips.

 

Take a peek under the hood at even more extras:

 

 

Iceland Stunt Diaries – Learn what it’s like shooting in the ice with the most technologically advanced cars ever – get commentary, storyboards, and more!

 

Betraying the Family – A deeper look at Charlize Theron’s character, “Cipher,” and her collaboration with the creative team to create this character.

 

The Hero Cars of Fast – A look at all the unique featured cars like the Ice Charger and Roman’s Lambo.

 

The Streets of New York – Find out how they filmed all the amazing action in NYC.

 

+ Much more! (That’s more aftermarket bolt-ons than a SEMA show.)

 

You can’t mix and match Fuel, but you can Mix & Match movies

 

 

Rev your engines, for a limited time you can get more Fast and more Furious with Mix & Match. Get furious savings when you purchase two titles from a selection of Furious franchise and actor filmography titles for just $14.99. That’s right – own the pinks to two movies for just $14.99. Hey, winning’s winning.

 

We don’t have friends, we have family

10th anniversary. 10¢ rental Wednesdays. We sense a theme.

 

One day only - 10¢ movie rentals on select titles!

 

One day only – Rent an HDX movie for 10¢!

 

What can you get for 10¢? Because you’re on Vudu and it’s our 10th anniversary celebration, you can get a movie rental. That’s right, watch a movie for 10¢! An HDX movie rental at that! What about outside of Vudu? Maybe a piece of candy. Maybe one LEGO brick.  Maybe a banana. Meh, not exciting choices. Go with the rental.

 

These are the days that your parents told you about when they say, “Back in my day….” Now you can say it back to them and silence them once and for all. Inflation? Psssshhh. The value of a dollar? Yeah, 10 rentals. A penny saved is a penny earned? Well, 10 pennies is a movie. So take that to the bank, ‘rents.

 

If you’ve got the money honey, we’ve got your disease (and by disease we mean movie)

 

Choose from 30 pretty amazing titles, including Pacific Rim (but have you seen Atlantic Rim?), Top Gun (I mean come on, talk to me Goose, no brainer right here), Bridget Jones’s Diary (so adorbs), Galaxy Quest (never give up, never surrender – except to 10¢ rentals), Into the Wild, Divergent, and more!

 

Pick up as many as you want, because as always, you have 30 days to start any rental and between 24-72 hours to finish it. So if you’ve got the dime, we’ve got the time. Literally. You could even rent all 30 and watch a movie a day for $3. Three bucks!

 

Check out all the 10¢ titles while they last, because at the end of the day, they’ll be gone. Well, um, only to return next Wednesday with another set of 10¢ rental titles. (Insert joke about not nickel and diming.)
