Atomic Blonde is blowing up your TV in 4K + Dolby Vision HDR

Also, Cars 3 comes in hot, new rentals, and free “Even Stranger Things”

 

Blondes have more fun (killing)

 

 

This movie packs some serious punch. No, we mean, like, nuclear. But what else would you expect from the director that also brought us John Wick? Based on the graphic novel “The Coldest City,” Atomic Blonde is graphic, and Charlize Theron’s character is cold, but everything else in the film is blazing hot. Especially in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision HDR. Brighter neon, darker alleys, and harder punches (figuratively) – it’s all there with more color and vibrancy thanks to HDR.

 

But Charlize isn’t the only one that packs extra punch. When you get Atomic Blonde, you’ll also get our exclusive Extras+ experience included. Just watch on a mobile device in portrait mode and experience bonuses synced to the movie, extras, a super spy challenge, a digital comic, and so much more.

 

Car chases that get even more animated

 

 

Sure there are fast car chases in Atomic Blonde, but they aren’t Lightning McQueen fast. Disney Pixar is back with Cars 3, the third installment of the wildly popular Cars series. And it gets real – real fast. (At least as real as animated cars can get.) This time around Lightning is looking for redemption, and he looks to some new and old friends to help him get back on track.

 

available to rent: Annabelle: Creation, Emoji, Apes

 

 

Didn’t get a chance to catch War for the Planet of the Apes in the theater? Well, you’re in luck because this third installment of the Apes franchise is now available for rent on Vudu. This movie doesn’t monkey around when it comes to action-packed, epic battles – and it even tackles some deep philosophical topics around what it means to be human and the consequences of absolute power.

 

With 30 days to start your rental, we’ve got one of the most generous rental policies out there, because, hey, life happens. Can’t watch the night you rented? No problem. There’s no need to return anything, no wasted rental fee, and no extra rental charges – just extra time. And after you finally hit play, you’ll get 24-72 hours (title dependent) to finish – so rent away.

 

A collection of “Even Stranger Things”

 

A whole collection of free movies? That’s not strange at all.  At least for us and Movies On Us.

 

 

Just in time for Halloween, we’ve got Shutter Island (not a vacation getaway destination), The Island of Dr. Moreau (also not a vacation getaway destination), Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, Barbarella: Queen of the Galaxy (a whole different kind of strange, but classic, thing), and more. All for free on Movies On Us.

 

 

Watch What to Expect When You’re Expecting for free

Bet you didn’t expect free

 

 

Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, and Brooklyn Decker. We’d be hard-pressed to build a more impressive powerhouse of women to anchor What to Expect When You’re Expecting – a comedy that sheds light on all the dark shadows of pregnancy no one wants to talk about. It’s a healthy, and hearty, dose of cold truth and poignant laughs – and it’s free on Movies On Us.

 

So why not grab some girlfriends, or some guy friends (hey, who doesn’t love a good comedy…ok, ok, or Brooklyn Decker), and relive the joys of pregnancy – or get a humorous look at what the future might look like – for free. Or better yet, turn movie night into double- or triple-feature night and watch the circle of life unfold before your very eyes.

 

Yes, we said circle of life

 

 

We know how it works. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. (Or so the saying goes. #science) So kick of movie night and cover the “love” part with Rough Night, Girls Trip, or a perennial fan favorite like The Sweetest Thing.

 

Then cover the marriage and pre-baby portion with What to Expect When You’re Expecting for free on Movies On Us. (Save that dough for diapers, yo.)

 

 

If you haven’t been scared celibate at this point, you can top it all off with any one of our favorites, which include Couples Retreat or Bad Moms. Especially since A Bad Moms Christmas is hitting theaters soon – and it looks hilarious.

 

Whether you watch just one (What to Expect When You’re Expecting, it’s free) or decide to be extra (always be extra) and watch two or three, you’re in for a night of fun. Because you should always expect that with Vudu.

 

 

Turn Friday into Fri-yay with family movie night and The Emoji Movie

 

The weekend is here 🙌! So whether you’re turning Fri-yay, Satur-yay, or Sun-yay into Fam-yay movie night, we’re here to lend a ✋ with The Emoji Movie and some free activities for the kids. (Ok, enough yay-ing 😁).

 

Once you’ve got The Emoji Movie, and some snacks (🍿, 🍕, or 🍭), you’re ready for the free activities.

 

If you haven’t gotten ready for Halloween yet, we’ve got some Jack-o-Lantern stencils so you can carve your favorite emoji characters into Cucurbita 🎃. Glowing 💩? Where do we sign up? Talk about getting 🔥.

 

Or, if you’re looking to make less of a mess, you can also set the creative juices free (instead of the pumpkin’s) with our The Emoji Movie coloring sheets 🎨. Keen on a green Gene? Highlighter yellow Hi-5? Perhaps even a polka-dot Poop? Why not? It’s the weekend, get your cray on! (See what we did there? Cray on. Crayon. Come on, it was funny.)

 

You can find the coloring sheets and Jack-o-Lantern stencils here.
 
 

War for the Planet of the Apes and The Emoji Movie are on Vudu + rent Baby Driver, and more

 

This movie doesn’t monkey around

Go bananas and watch War for the Planet of the Apes on Vudu tonight!

These aren’t your daddy’s damn dirty apes.

 

What we love about this franchise is how emotionally complex Caesar has become – growing more and more intellectual in the build-up to War for the Planet of the Apes. Sure, there is plenty of action when the fists and the fur fly in this final battle, but there’s also a complexity to the story – with ethical and emotional battles waged alongside military ones.

 

Watch Caesar lead his apes to war, and possibly freedom, starting today.

 

We 💖 this 🎬 and totally 😂

 

Watch The Emoji Movie on Vudu. You'll LOL, maybe even ROTFL

💩. That’s all we really need to say because that’s probably the main reason you’re seeing this movie. Don’t 🙄 at us, you know it’s partially true. But put the 📱 down for a bit because this movie has a star-studded cast (that you can hear, but you can’t see) that includes TJ Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, and more! So, give your 👍 a rest, stop sending emojis, and laugh your 🍑 off at the crazy adventures of these emojis.

 

Ballers is life

 

Watch season 3 of Ballers on Vudu, and check out seasons 1 and 2 trailers for free!

 

If you haven’t checked out this comedy, you’re missing out. Ballers stars Dwayne Johnson as a charismatic sports agent who manages his athletes like he’s herding cats – so it’s a heck of a lot of fun. It’s also got stacks, whips, gold chains, and groupies (if you like that sort of thing). And in a similar vein to Entourage, expect to see real athletes and sports commentators making cameos.

 

You can pre-order season 3 today, or if you don’t know what the hype is about, check out the trailers for season 1 and 2 for free.

 

Nobody parks Baby in a corner

 Rent Baby Driver today on Vudu!

 

Baby Driver is a pedal to the metal thrill-fest that goes from 0-100 real quick. It’s an Edgar Wright movie (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim), so expect everything to move pretty quick in this film (watch out for the whiplash). The driving is slick. Real slick. And with a cadence that times it perfectly with the music, it makes The Fast and The Furious franchise (say that 10 times quickly) guys look like a bunch of busters. Rent it tonight without leaving the couch – just sit back and enjoy the ride.

 

Elvira is in the building

Watch Elvira...and her 13 Nights of Elvira for free on Movies On Us

 

Swing by and hang out with The Mistress of the Dark, she’s free for next 13 nights. Well, her 13 Nights of Elvira series that is. Check out 13 of her favorite “best of the worst” B-horror movies, and be amazed at just how frightening some of the movies are (interpret that how you will).  Get plenty of Elvira, and her skewering commentary, free with Movies On Us. And be sure to check out our anime, just added, and other collections.

 

 

Watch Girls Trip, Lady Macbeth, Bob’s Burgers S8, and more

Plus new to rent, movies still in theaters, and more Movies On Us

 

The Big Easy, burgers, and a heaping serving of betrayal

 

 

Let’s start the week off easy, in the Big Easy, with Girls Trip. This comedy follows four lifelong friends on a girls trip to New Orleans – and the adventure that ensues. While it has its share of raunchy jokes, Girls Trip manages to tie in a story of friendship, empowerment, and sisterhood that will make you feel better about yourself for laughing at the crude humor.

 

 

Moving from girls trips to grill tops, you can pick up a season pass for season 8 of the smart and irreverent Bob’s Burgers today. The Belchers are back and just as rambunctious and loveably dysfunctional as ever (and Louise still has bunny ears). Watch this animated series that continues to build a better burger and never fails to satisfy. Allriiiiight.

 

 

And while Bob hasn’t created a Macbeth themed burger of the day, Lady Macbeth is cooking up a little something of her own. Based on Nikolai Leskov’s Russian novella, not the Shakespearean character, Lady Macbeth still seems to draw from the same desires of power, revenge, guilt, and betrayal – and it does so in a wonderfully vicious way.

 

Because why not – Sharknado 5: Global Swarming

 

 

Yes, there’s a fifth movie. No, they didn’t skip any. And whether or not you think it, ahem, jumped the shark, it doesn’t mean Sharknado 5: Global Swarming isn’t fun to watch. But fear not, if you feel like you need to regenerate some brain cells afterward, we’ve also got the documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel – which may or may not link global warming and sharknados. (JK, it totally doesn’t.)

 

Now that’s a home theater

 

Watch movies that are still in theaters from the comfort of your couch. No sticky floors, talkers, or errant texts (unless they’re yours, that’s ok). Watch these movies at home and let your friends know that while they’re at the theater dealing with the seat-kicker behind them, you’re in your PJs and elbow deep in your favorite bag of chips.

 

 

Super Dark Times is a mesmerizingly authentic portrayal of teenage friendships, angst, violence, and guilt. It’s Stand By Me on steroids and set in the mid-90s – and it’s wickedly entertaining.

 

Better Watch Out is the movie love child if The Strangers and Home Alone got together. It’s a dark and twisted comedy that isn’t quite Krampus, but it’s not A Charlie Brown Christmas either.

 

You can also check out Overdrive, from the writers of 2 Fast 2 Furious and the director of Taken (watching “still in theaters” movies at home is a special skill), Shot Caller (a father’s metamorphosis from family man to institutionalized con; hear him roar), and more.

 

New to rent

 

 

Avast ye – oh wait, National Talk Like A Pirate Day is over. But that doesn’t mean you can’t catch Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It may or may not be the final installment of the franchise, but you definitely may rent it on Vudu.

 

Can’t watch tonight? No worries. With Vudu rentals, you get 30 days to start your movie and 24-72 hours to finish.

Movies On Us: Man vs. Machine collection

 

It’s the ultimate battle – who will win? You will. Because the Man vs. Machine collection is free to watch with Movies On Us.

 

 

Get your fill of Murphy with Robocop 1, 2, and 3. You’ll buy that for $1? No need, they’re free.

 

Or check out Robin Williams (RIP) in The Final Cut as he deals with issues of technology and morality in one of his more serious roles (which we totally dig).

 

We’ve also got the classic The Running Man (how about a light?), and a man vs. robotic Rebecca Romijn in Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant.
