Get Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 4K UHD, free movies & TV, new to rent, and more

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 4K? Ok!


If you didn’t hear, we’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound! Now you can watch all of the galaxy-gallivanting antics with more clarity and color than you ever imagined (and as James Gunn wants you to watch it).


Get it now and watch instantly, and then join us on August 18th at 6 p.m. (PT) for our #VuduViewingParty and experience fun, trivia, and prizes. Why? Because we’re family.


Riding dirty with Tour de Pharmacy



The Tour de France happens later this week. Yeah, we aren’t going to watch either, because we are going to watch Tour de Pharmacy instead!


This hilarious mockumentary about a fictional 1982 Tour de France where every competitor dopes (wait, mockumentary or documentary?) is from the comedic mind of Andy Samberg and features a ton of great actors and cameos (and yes, that’s John Cena).


Relationships are hard, free movies are easy



Check out our For Better…Or Worse collection on Movies On Us and laugh or cry with a collection of free movies that examine the frailty of relationships.


Live a double life with Confessions of a Call Girl and Concussion, turn back time with Cher in Moonstruck, get house buying tips in The Amityville Horror, and get caught in a love triangle with Brothers.


Sometimes you feel like a rental


Sometimes you’re curious about a movie, but not enough to buy it. We get it. That’s why we’ve got rentals. And you don’t even have to leave the house (or the couch) to get them.


Get new rentals like Snatched (Amy Schumer’s parody of tourist kidnapping movies), The Dinner (dinner that includes a side of dark family secrets), King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (anarchy in ancient times, and a lady in a lake), and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (for those of you seeking some family-friendly PG hilarity).



For what it’s worth, we just watched Going In Style – a geriatric heist movie with charm and laughs, like Oceans 11 in a large print edition – and it is hilarious. Sure there are some predictable old man gags and jokes, but the delivery is as spot on as age spots. And who doesn’t love Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin.


As always, you get 30 days to start your rental (because we know stuff comes up), and 24-72 hours to finish once you start.


Watch while it’s in theaters, without the theater


Shark Week may be over, but we’re keeping it alive with Open Water 3 (although we can’t say the same for the people in it). The premise hasn’t changed much through the series – friends go on a vacation and are left in shark infested waters – but it looks like a swimmingly good time (at least more so than watching Michael Phelps swim with sharks).


You can also check out the battle-filled medieval fantasy flick, The Veil, or watch some tech-toting Millennials get owned by their own apps in horror flick Bedeviled.



Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision and Atmos sound, now on Vudu

Get Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 4K UHD on Vudu! HDX & SD available for pre-order now!

save the galaxy, again. This time in 4K.


Guess what we’ve got? It’s big. Like galactic big. We don’t know if we could make it clearer – because it doesn’t get much clearer than 4K UHD with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound. That’s right, we’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 4K UHD  – and it is glorious.


Get it now for $24.99 and get $3 movie credit when you Pre-order


You still have a little bit of time to pre-order in UHD and qualify for $3 movie credit. Pre-order ends tonight at 9 p.m. (PT) so don’t wait. Get Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with $3 movie credit, in glorious UHD. Just how glorious? Well, we think the guru of the Guardians, James Gunn himself, sums it up nicely:


“4K UltraHD is almost certainly the best way you can see this movie at home – with more definition and the most vibrant colors possible on your home screen, and with the brightest brights and the blackest blacks….This version is a roiling cinematic river of beauty and I’ve taken hundreds of hours personally making it look the best it can. This is one of the reasons why LIGHT and COLOR are such important elements of Vol. 2’s story, and why we screened the World Premiere in Los Angeles in essentially this format.”


Extras, Extras, read all about the Extras


This will be the first Disney movie released in this format, and it’s known that Gunn put his weight behind this initiative (good looking out). If it’s successful, could it mean Star Wars and Marvel movies in 4K? Yeah, we hope so too.


With the digital 4K UHD version, you’ll also get a slew of extras (slew is the industry term for eight), including:


  • The Making of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • Guardians Inferno Music Video (ft. The Hoff)
  • Three Scene Breakdowns
  • Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout (A look at the new Disneyland ride)

New this week on Vudu: Movies, TV, and Free Movies

Watch it today: Alien: Covenant, The Wall, Everything Everything, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul



We’ve been colonized, and we actually feel pretty good about it because it means Alien: Covenant has landed. Not only does this movie get us closer to the nitty-gritty of how the Xenomorphs came to be, but it does so in a delightfully frightening and bloody way. It’s got facehuggers, chestbursters, and a lot of freaked out colonists running around like chickens with their heads about to be chopped off. (Because they will be.)



And for fans looking to get a little more, you can also get an Alien: Covenant and Prometheus Bundle on Vudu!



If that’s not enough… 1) maybe don’t be so greedy, and 2) lucky for you, you can get the Walmart Exclusive gift set that includes Blu-ray, DVD, a limited edition t-shirt (size XL only), and an HDX digital movie – with free shipping! Be sure to purchase the Disc + Digital option.


You can also check out other new titles, like The Dinner, a thriller about sinners (based on the best-selling Dutch novel of the same title); the touching, coming of age love story Everything, Everything; the deadly, cat and mouse sniper story, The Wall; the off-beat comedy How to be a Latin Lover, and the kid-favorite Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.


Silicon Valley is Bach(manity)



We went to Comic-Con, and now we’re going to Hooli-Con with Season 4 of Silicon Valley – a comedy that hits close to home for us (literally, because we’re in Silicon Valley). Pivot your movie watching for a bit and get the entire season now.

Watch free comedy on Movies On Us


Like to laugh? No? Oh, well… so anyway, we’ve got a ton of great free comedy on Movies On Us. Free as in zero dollars.



Guffaw with Gallagher, nyuk it up with Nick Cannon, get some side-splitting laughs with Bob Saget, or have a hoot with DL Hughley.


While you’re there, you can also check out our HORRORible Vacations horror collection, New TV collection, and our Kung Fu Masters collection.

New rental: Sleight


Part sci-fi and part drama, Sleight uses more than sleight of hand to win you over. Following a street magician who’s got a little more up his sleeve, Sleight takes you on an imaginative and intense journey. It’s got some great performances, including a more than magical Jacob Latimore as Bo, and is worth a look.



Available 8/1 for Pre-Order – Alien: Covenant + get $3 movie credit on release!

Movement. Signal’s clean. Range, five days.


Pre-order Alien: Covenant on Vudu on 8/1!


In space, no one can hear you scream, but on Earth, can people hear your excitement of pre-ordering Alien: Covenant?


Pre-order this sequel to the Alien prequel Prometheus (it’s a sequel, and a prequel…a se-prequel – we’re making that a thing) AND you’ll also get $3 movie credit back when it’s released!


Alien: Covenant brings back some of the good old-fashioned, close-quarters space horror and it does it well. Freaky scenes with facehuggers? Check.



White-knuckle suspense? Check.



A Xenomorph evolution that’s so gruesome and horrific you can’t take your eyes of it? Check, check, and check.





And a Comic-Con experience that tested your ability to be a colonist aboard the Covenant? Check. Oh, you didn’t get to go? Don’t worry, we got you covered.



Ok, check. Not to mention the collectable pins for “surviving the experience.” Double check.



You hear that?


That’s what getting $3 movie credit for pre-ordering sounds like. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get this pre-order party started!






New Movies and TV Shows on Vudu this week

Now on Vudu: King Arthur, Snatched, Rick and Morty S3, and The Simpsons S4-19


King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is available now on Vudu!


Get a new twist on an old king with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Arthur’s story is already more legend than lore, but Guy Ritchie and Charlie Hunnam shed all that to create their own legend (like that he was raised in a brothel). It’s got a lady in a lake, a sword in a stone, and all the Guy Ritchie style action you can handle.


Snatched is available now on Vudu!


While King Arthur is snatching swords from stones, Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn are getting Snatched while on vacation in South America. In this comedy, this mother/daughter odd couple have to work together to escape their kidnappers, the jungle, and their baggage with each other – hilarity and inappropriately awkward jokes ensue (would it be Amy Schumer if they didn’t?).


Rick and Morty S3 and The Simpsons S4-19 are available now on Vudu!


On the TV front, Rick and Morty jump dimensions and show up on Vudu with Season 3, available now by episode or Season Pass (in all its philosophizing and alcohol metabolizing glory). The Simpsons are also here and crowding the couch with Seasons 4-19 (only a gazillion more seasons to collect!).


Rent now: Ghost in the Shell and The Boss Baby


Rent The Boss Baby on Vudu today!


Ghost on the rental box be the boss of your rental with Ghost in the Shell and The Boss Baby on Vudu this week.


Don’t interrupt movie night. Rent, watch, and go to bed without returning a thing with Vudu. You’ll always have 30 days to start any rental, then you’ll have 24 hours to finish Ghost in the Shell and 48 hours to finish The Boss Baby.


Watch it free: Your favorite Stars of Gen X


Get your favorite Gen X stars in some of their greatest performances free with Movies On Us.


Watch The Company Men, and much more, free on Movies On Us!


Watch Ben Affleck take on the realities of the new economy when he’s downsized in The Company Men, adorkable underdog Jason Segel and Ed Helms learn to be happy with life in Jeff, Who Lives at Home, and Maggie Gyllenhall and James Spader get all 50 Shades before it was cool in Secretary.


Pre-order: Atomic Blonde, Dark Tower, Jumanji


There are some big titles hitting the theaters this week and that means they’ll be available for pre-order starting on Friday.


Pre-order Atomic Blonde on Vudu starting Friday!


Charlize Theron is kicking butt, hitting hard, and taking hits in Atomic Blonde, based on the graphic novel The Coldest City. This looks like a full-fledged adrenaline ride and we couldn’t be more excited.


Pre-order The Dark Tower on Vudu starting Friday!


Stephen King comes to life in The Dark Tower, a film adaptation of his book series of the same name. Watch Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey battle it out for the fate of the universe on the big screen, then pre-order it for your screen (any of them, we’re on almost all of them).


Pre-orer Jumanji on Vudu starting on Friday!


And it looks like the curse got bored with being a board game and decided to become a video game in this evolution of Jumanji (the game has evolved!). Robin Williams will always be our favorite, but seeing Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Heart together again (Central Intelligence!) means serious laughs.
