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.

 

 

It’s a Deadpool party, who could ask for more?

… Everybody’s coming; leave your katanas at the door.

 

That’s right, we’re back – and your Friday is about to get filled with D. And prizes, lots of prizes. And, if you’ve seen our email promotions, maybe, just maybe, a special co-host. We think.

 

We’re hosting another #VuduViewingParty tomorrow at 7 PM (PT) for Deadpool 2 – the sequel to the first movie. We’ll start promptly at 7 PM (PT!), so get your superhero landings ready and RSVP now.

 

 

If you joined us last Friday for our Avengers: Infinity War #VuduViewingParty, you know you’re in for a good time filled with witty banter, trivia, and of course, a copious amount of prizes. Every winner will get a prize pack that includes all this goodness:

 

 

And one lucky winner will be lucky enough to take home this Juggernaut of a Grand Prize – and yes, that’s the actual painting used in the Deadpool Bob Ross trailer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best part? You can party with us from the comfort of your own home. So dress up (as your favorite X-Force-er – Vanisher anyone?), or dress down (full Winnie the Pooh?). We even got you a kinky, semi-naked, fully-wrinkly Wade Wilson paper doll you can also dress up – or down. We recommend down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We know, right? It’s some of the most hilarious low-tech fun we’ve had in a while. So grab it while you can. Just be gentle. Because it’s paper. (Click either image for the full 7-page PDF)

 

Achieve maximum effort And join in 3 easy steps:

 

 

First, you need the movie. You can get it here however you like it – even in up to 4K UHD (Dolby Vision & HDR10). Don’t forget, 4K UHD comes with the ability to watch in HDX and SD for the same price! So, even if you don’t have a 4K TV yet, you can futureproof your collection by getting it in 4K now and still watch it in HDX.

 

Second, you should be a polite guest and RSVP here.

 

Third, you’ll need a Twitter account so you can follow us, @VuduFans, and join the conversation using #VuduViewingParty

 

Make it plus plus

 

And when you get HDX or 4K quality, you’ll also get the Super Duper Cut included! It’s got 15 extra minutes of fun jokes, gags, and inappropriateness. Oh my.

 

Or, if you’re feeling extra Michelangelo-y, you can even get an exclusive and arty Digital Movie Card at your local Walmart.

 

 

 

In Wolverine’s eyes, we are complete

 

 

Say anything about you want about their relationship, but you can’t talk about Deadpool without mentioning Wolverine. And it just so happens that you can cuddle up to Wade’s favorite clawed-companion – and his genetically-gifted friends – in X-Men: Days of Future Past (HDX), on us, when you link your Vudu account and Movies Anywhere.

 

So, if you haven’t linked already, you can get Deadpool 2, get the Super Duper Cut (requires purchase of HDX or 4K), and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Other terms and conditions apply, learn more here.

 

 

Deadpool 2 arrives with a superhero landing. #nailedit

PLUS NEW RELEASES, RENTALS, AND MORE

 

Get arty farty with an exclusive Deadpool 2 Disc + Digital Collector’s Set

 

Sometimes a hero is a judiciary badass fighting for equal rights, or a broken down athlete getting back in the saddle. Sometimes it’s a wisecracking mutated mercenary with katanas. Whatever your definition, these hot new releases are here to save the day.

 

 

You didn’t really think we were done offering up primo Deadpool 2 awesomeness, did you? Now that the sequel to the first movie is finally here, you can enjoy the Merc with a Mouth in up to 4K UHD!

 

And if you’re looking for even more D in a box, we’ve got an exclusive Collector’s Set that includes a digital HDX + Blu-ray physical copy and an exclusive Bob Ross-pool Pocket Pop! Keychain! (Shipped from Walmart.com.) Try saying that five times fast, or save yourself the effort and just order your Disc + Digital here. (Limited time offer. While supplies last.)

 

 

The legendary lawyer turned Supreme Court Justice, who drops dissenting opinions and legal precedent like fire freestyle lyrics finally has a documentary befitting her legacy. RBG follows Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s inspiring journey from outspoken law student to Supreme Court heavy hitter and pop-cultural phenom, with plenty of wise witticisms from the honorable justice herself.

 

 

In a movie world stuffed with killer androids, rampant cybercrime, and groundbreaking first-person visuals, the only thing you’re safe from is boredom. The combined vision of a comic book icon and his biggest filmmaker fan, Ghost Source Zero is a next-level sci-fi thrill ride from start to finish.

 

 

Being a top competitor means putting everything you have on the line. And for rodeo star Brady that includes his health and livelihood. Sidelined by injury, he’ll give whatever he has left if it means one more chance at becoming The Rider he once was.

 

 

Between being overweight, dealing with fighting parents, and working in the hot sun for peanuts, teen Bobby is in for one bummer of a summer. It’s going to take courage, friendship, and some sage advice from an eccentric millionaire for him to learn the Measure of a Man.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

She may not be the jock, the cool girl, or even the campus nerd, but after a devastating divorce and losing her home, middle-aged mom Deanna is determined to return to school as the Life of the Party.

 

 

To a group of would-be thieves, Shaun and her kids alone at a house in the woods seem like the perfect marks. These criminals are about to find out what a terribly bad idea it was to try Breaking In.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

Imprisoned in a land not his own. Still addicted to the drugs that got him there. Broke, bloodied, and beaten down. If English fighter (and real-life inspiration) Billy Moore is going to box his way out of Thailand’s most infamous prison, it’s going to take more than A Prayer Before Dawn.

 

TV (SPOILERS AHEAD)

 

 

Don’t call it a comeback, mainly because he’s not doing so good. As he mourns the death of his brother and struggles to keep personal relationships afloat, Jimmy McGill spirals ever closer to becoming the Breaking Bad Saul we know so well. Need some dark, pulse-pounding drama in your life? Better Call Saul (Season 4).

 

 

Last chance for pre-order and $3 movie credit back

Our new favorite guy in a red suit is both NAUGHTY AND NICE

 

 

You’d better watch out. You’d better not cry. And frankly, you better assess your tolerance level for violence, sarcasm, and unicorns – because Deadpool 2 (the “sequel to the first movie”) is coming to town, tomorrow! And this time our new favorite red-suited rascal (sorry Santa) is bringing some gifts of his own.

 

 

If you pre-order Deadpool 2 or the Deadpool 2-Movie Collection (Double the fun! Double the movies! Double the entendre!) before midnight tonight, you’ll receive a $3 Vudu credit to use once the movie drops. But today is the last day, so get that baby hand moving.

 

But wait! There’s more! You’ll also be entered to win one of just 1,000 Vudu-exclusive DP2 posters! That’s right: when you’re done watching all the explosions, skydives, and firefights (literal and not) of Deadpool 2 in up to eye-exploding 4K UHD visual quality, you can turn to your wall and enjoy the same Deadpool-riffic visuals in limited edition poster. We’d show you what it looks like, but then we’d have to sic X-Force on you. Oh, wait. Well, ok, you can see it here.

 

 

But still wait! There’s still more! With your purchase of Deadpool 2 in HDX quality or higher, you also receive the previously unseen, practically unsafe, possibly unconstitutional Super Duper Cut with a full 15 minutes of too-Deadpool-for-theaters extra footage. It’s a limb-riping good time, but you’ll probably want to wash your ears and eyes out with soap after watching it – heck maybe just go full-body sanitization.

 

 

And if all that wasn’t enough, we’re hosting the Deadpool 2 #VUDUVIEWINGPARTY to end all Deadpool 2 #VUDUVIEWINGPARTIES. (Going out on top, since there’s only going to be one. Maximum effort.) Because no one should have to Deadpool alone (and because we have way too much awesome swag for us to keep for ourselves). 

 

FRIDAY. 7PM. PACIFIC TIME. Be there or you might as well be in the Icebox. We’ll be kicking back, enjoying the movie, and spreading good cheer with the funnest facts, nerdiest trivia, and dopest prizes this side of grandma’s bingo social. Get your pre-order on, follow @vudufans on the ol’ Twitter, and click here to RSVP while the RSVP-ing is good.
