Watch Winchester, Hostiles, and Peter Rabbit

Plus, new rentals and free movies

 

New releases for you

Winchester

Watch Winchester on Vudu today!

 

Before it was a tourist attraction, the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA, was the real-life home of Sarah Winchester – heiress of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company fortune. And while she was alive, you could say the house was too.

 

It was under constant construction for 38 years and was allegedly haunted by the ghosts of those killed by Winchester firearms. Fact, fiction, or a little bit of both? Watch Winchester and decide.

 

Hostiles

Watch Hostiles on Vudu today!

 

While it doesn’t have Sara Winchester or any ghosts, we’re pretty sure that you’ll see a lot of death by Winchester rifle when you watch Hostiles.

 

Christian Bale is back in a 3:10 to Yuma-ish Western that sees him as a Calvary office who must escort a Cheyenne war chief and his family back to their home in Montana. Of course, the saying “easier said than done” comes into play here, but bigger than that is the question of who in Hostiles is really the hostile? Or are we all just hostiles? Did we blow your mind yet?

 

New for the kids, or kids at heart

Peter Rabbit

Watch Peter Rabbit on Vudu today!

 

Long before a certain “wascally wabbit,” there was another mischievous lepus – Peter Rabbit. This classic Beatrix Potter tale (tail?) gets a clever update for modern kids circa 2018 (versus 1902), with a hipper hopper (yeah, we said it) voiced by James Corden. Also featuring the voices of Sia, Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley, Rose Byrne, and more. 

 

For a limited time, get Peter Rabbit for 25% off! That’s right, all the hare for less cabbage. (Old Mr. McGregor would be proud.) You can pre-order it now in SD and HDX for 25% off, or in 4K + HDR. Plus get $3 in movie credit when it’s released.

 

And be sure to check out our Family Sale for over 200 more titles at 25% off.

 

 

Now available for rent

 Watch The Post on Vudu today!

 

Oscar nominee for Best Picture, The Post tells the story of a critical moment in the history of American journalism – the publishing of the Pentagon Papers by The Washington Post. The Post is more than just a movie about a newspaper, it’s about accountability, responsibility, and the rise of the first female publisher of a major American newspaper.

 

Watch The Commuter on Vudu today!

 

And don’t forget to punch your ticket for The Commuter, Liam Neeson’s latest action thriller that sets out to ruin the commute of a former cop turned insurance salesman. It’s ok, he still has a very particular set of skills. And that leads to a whole lot of action. So all aboard for The Commuter, now available for rent.

Watch exclusive content when you pre-order Ready Player One

Achievement unlocked: Watch “From Concept to Screen” now and the movie upon release

  Watch exclusive content now with your Ready Player One pre-order on Vudu

Come with me, and you’ll be…in a world of pure imagination. Well, technically, in a world of author and co-screenwriter Ernest Cline, and Steven Spielberg’s imagination – but we could think of worse imaginations to be in.

 

Now, when you pre-order Ready Player One on Vudu, you’ll get instant access to “From Concept to Screen,” an exclusive clip that takes you behind the scenes and shows you what it took to bring the immersive worlds of the Stacks and the OASIS from book to screen.

 

If you build it, he will come

(Yeah, yeah, different movie, but the idea still applies. Besides, it’s technically an 80’s reference – which the movie is chock-full of. #linkspoileralert)

 

If you’ve seen Ready Player one, you already know how rich and complex both worlds are – worlds truly born of imagination. So, it’s incredibly rewarding to watch “From Concept to Screen” and see the energy and commitment Spielberg and his team exercised in staying as true to the book as possible.

 

You can pre-order Ready Player One now on Vudu in up to 4K + HDR.  Or if you’re a cash-only kind of person (how 80s of you), or you happen to be headed to a Walmart store, you can look for the Ready Player One Digital Movie Card. (Pre-order payment will process immediately.)

 

 

 

Watch Molly’s Game, Proud Mary, All the Money in the World

Plus, rent Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Watch free monster battles

 

It’s ladies’ night

 

Though she be but little, she is fierce – while Shakespeare didn’t have these ladies in mind, he did a pretty good job of summing them up.

Molly’s Game is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), an Olympic-class skier who ended up hosting the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being raided by the FBI. How’s that for a poker face?

 

Or keep on burnin’ with Proud Mary, and watch Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures, Person of Interest, Empire) as a professional hitwoman who finds herself on the wrong side of a contract when she protects a mysterious young boy.

 

Also available

Based on true events, All the Money in the World (directed by Ridley Scott) follows the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, grandson of J. Paul Getty – the world’s richest private citizen in 1966 with about $1.2B (worth about $9B in 2017 dollars).

 

If you’re looking for something a little more family friendly, watch Paddington 2 in up to 4K + HDR. This sequel finds the precocious British bear picking up a series of odd jobs to buy his Aunt a present for her 100th birthday. Hilarity ensues.

 

May the force be with you

 

Getting up to go to a box? That is not the rental you are looking for. Get into the action of Star Wars: The Last Jedi without leaving your post, TK-421. Rent in up to HDX for the price of a Porg dog and soda at the theater.

 

And while Luke may be able to train you against the Dark Side, none of that will help you in this dark place. That’s where the Survivors Guide to Prison comes in. This documentary will have you thinking twice about breaking the law and ending up in our broken prison system.

 

Free monster battles

Get your creature feature on with these amazing AND amazingly free movies.

 

In Mongolian Death Worm, humans find themselves at the bottom of the food chain when an oil company’s drilling awakens these ancient and destructive creatures.

 

Why wait for a full moon when you can watch Wolves anytime, anywhere for free? Sure, the main character is a high school senior who finds that puberty affects him a little…differently. But eventually the fangs and claws come out, and things get good and bloody.

 

 

Then there’s also Big Ass Spider! Not sure what more we need to say about that, the title pretty much says it all. Well, maybe we’ll add a bit of silk by mentioning its 4-star rating by other Vudu fans and it’s 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

 

Be sure to check out the rest of the collection for even more free monster battles.

We saved you a seat for the Jumanji #VuduViewingParty

Join us this Friday, 3/23, at 6pm (PT) for fun, prizes, and more fun

It’s not a game, it’s a #VuduViewingParty

 

It’s Monday, but don’t cry, register for our #VuduViewingParty and breath an extra life into your week with the promise of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle!

 

Come for the movie, stay for the prizes

 

Joining the #VuduViewingParty is easy. First, you’ll need to get Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Buy it or rent it, but you’re gonna need it to watch with us.

 

Second, you’ll need to RSVP for the party and follow us on “the Twitters” @vudufans.

 

Then when you hear beating drums this Friday, 3/23, at 6:00pm (PT), it’s game on! (If you actually hear beating drums, you might want to run.)

 

So get ready to kick back, take a selfie, and join the party without worrying about being eaten by a hippo. We’ll be chatting it up on Twitter all the while with fun facts, trivia, and prizes!

 

A familiar place, a whole new adventure

 

We know, the original Jumanji is a classic and shouldn’t be messed with – we agree. But this reboot does a great job of bushwacking its own path without stepping on any toes (or monkey tails) and pays just enough homage to the original to be respectful.

 

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is one jungle we don’t mind getting lost in. The Rock rocks as the awkward nerd, Jack Black really makes you believe he’s a teenage girl trapped in a middle-aged man’s body (like, really), Kevin Hart is hilarious as always, and Karen Gillan is amazingly tongue-in-cheek as a wallflower turned video game vixen. Plus, it doesn’t take itself too seriously and it makes some pretty clever jokes you wouldn’t expect.

 

So what are you waiting for? Don’t be a non-player character, get in on the action and RSVP today!

 

 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here. Need we say more?

Plus, rent Oscar nominees, and watch free movies

 

Hello, it’s me – in 4K with Dolby Vision HDR

 

Fulfill your destiny. Watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Vudu today and experience the full force of The Force when you watch in 4K with Dolby Vision – available only on Vudu.

 

Vudu offers Star Wars: The Last Jedi in both Dolby Vision and HDR10 formats – meaning more people can enjoy the richer and more vibrant color range of HDR across more HDR-capable devices. So, lightsabers will look deadlier, explosions will look more devastating, and love them or hate them, those Porgs will look cuter than ever.

 

And for a limited time, when you get the movie in HDX or UHD, you’ll get an offer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens for just $12.99 (HDX). Look for it in your My Offers.

 

Not sure why HDR is so awesome? Get a crash course here.

 

Get yourself an Oscar (nominee) or two

 

The Oscar parties are over. The after parties are over. But we’re still celebrating because several Oscar nominees just became available for rental.

 

Check out the latest creature feature by Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water. It’s got fantasy, it’s got romance, it’s got an amphibian-man – and it’s got a great story of humanity.

 

You can also check out, I, Tanya, the unbelievable story of Tanya Harding and her role in one of the most notorious scandals in sports history. Or the delirious story of discovery and desire, Call Me by Your Name.

 

 

Also available for rental this week are Justice League (we probably don’t need to hype that more), and Ferdinand, the classic children’s tale of a peace-loving bull.
