Watch Spider-Man: Homecoming in UHD for $19.99, Game of Thrones, new to rent, and free laughs with class clowns

 

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, look out, here comes the Spider-Man…in 4K+HDR (Dolby Vision) for only $19.99! That’s right, we’re basically giving you a free 4K+HDR upgrade to Spider-Man: Homecoming for the HDX price of $19.99.

 

So, why not future-proof your collection by getting a Stark Industries-level upgrade to 4K? Even if you don’t have a 4K TV yet, you can pick up the 4K+HDR version for just $19.99 and watch it on your existing HDTV by selecting HDX for your playback quality in the control bar, or by setting it as your Default Playback Quality on your Account Info page.

 

But if you have 4K-capable equipment, you’ll enjoy 4x the pixels and be awed by the enhanced color and brightness of Dolby Vision HDR (if your setup is also Dolby Vision compatible).

 

On top of all that, you’ll also get the Extras+ enhanced viewing experience when you watch it on mobile. It’s already included, just watch using the Extras+ option from your Android or iOS mobile device and experience bonuses synced to the movie, photo galleries, deleted scenes, and so much more. (You’ve got to check out the Rappin With Cap featurettes.)

 

Also available: The Beguiled and The House

 

They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. So how about a house full of scorned women? Watch The Beguiled and see what happens when a Union soldier (Colin Farrell) finds himself intertwined in jealousy and vengeance at a women’s school (run by Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst) in this remake of the 1971 film of the same name.

 

 

 

They also say the house always has an edge, but in the case of The House, we’re not so sure. This comedy follows parents (Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell) who turn their house into a casino to help fund their daughter’s college education. Can they pull it off? Only the casi-knows.

 

Winter is here. So is Game of Thrones.

 

The North remembers, but did you? Game of Thrones Season 7 is now available on Vudu. Maybe you should order it now so you can binge this weekend. Go for it, we’ll hold the door.

 

New Rental: Transformers: The Last Knight

 

If you haven’t watched it yet, Transformers: The Last Knight is now available to rent. You can probably guess the plot but that’s ok – since we both know you’re just in it for the signature Michael Bay action, explosions, and low-angle hero shots.

 

Laughs so cheap they’re free

 

Class is in session and these guys are teaching some AP-level comedy. Enjoy some laughs on us with the Class Clowns collection on Movies On Us. Watch titles like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Bad News Bears, Possums, Clifford, and more – all for free. While you’re there, feel free to check out Action-Packed!, Last Chance to Watch, and other collections. Also be sure to check out a Vudu exclusive, The Space Between, Amy Jo Johnson’s directorial debut in the Indie Spotlight.

 

 

 

Ahoy. It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day and we’ve got Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Plus Watch Wonder Woman, Killing Gunther, and Get some free love

Dead men tell no tales, but they do entertain

 

Avast ye landlubbers, for it be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arrg. Ok, we’re done speaking pirate, but we’re still celebrating the follyday (fake holiday, is that a thing?) that also happens to be the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

 

Four movies, plenty of curses (but not cursing), and countless bottles of rum have led up to this fifth and final chapter in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. It’s Capt. Jack Sparrow’s “final” voyage (mmhmm, there’s a rug store down the street that’s been going out of business for the last 10 years too), and this film fills its sails with the action, laughs, and undead pirates you’d expect – and ups the ante with ghost sharks. Shiver me timbers. (Ok we lied, we weren’t done.) So, grab ye mates, secure the treasure (the movie), and drop anchor on the couch, savvy?

 

See even more dead people

 

A different kind of ghost story, A Ghost Story haunts not in a horror movie sense, but in how it tells the story of love, loss, memory, and time. It doesn’t have flickering lights, things creeping out of the shadows, or that eerie horror sound effect favorite – the waterphone. But it does tie in a love story, loneliness and denial, and a little bit of time warping. It’s an arty little indie, that’s worth the heartbreaking and heartwarming ride.

 

A wondrous rental

 

 

Wonder Woman is now available for rent. If you haven’t seen this powerhouse of a movie yet, well now’s your chance. Directory Patty Jenkins does a job worthy of an Amazon and delivers both a hero and a movie we can all be proud of.

 

Ah-nold is back

 

We’ve got a special treat for you. This Friday, you’ll be able to watch Killing Gunther BEFORE it hits theaters. Whaaa? How is this possible? Don’t ask questions, just watch it. (Do it, do it naow. Well, do it Friday…)

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger is Gunther, the world’s greatest assassin (of course he is), and he’s being hunted by a group of less established assassins trying to make a name for themselves. Hilarious hijinks ensue.

 

Feel free to feel the love

 

Love is in the air. And on your screen. And it’s free in both places. With fall just around the corner, we’ve got a bunch of free movies you can fall in love with as you cuddle with your S.O. to keep warm.

 

 

The Material Girl takes charge as director of W.E., her vision of King Edward VIII’s abdication of the British throne in the name of love. We’ve also got the story of love in the inner-city of Houston with Jason’s Lyric, the story of a man (hey Matt LeBlanc, how you doin?) who literally falls crazy in love whenever he falls for a girl with Lovesick, and a movie that brings new meaning to being lovesick (the feeling, not the last movie) with Griffin & Phoenix.

 

 

 

Free and exclusively on Vudu: Watch Amy Jo Johnson’s The Space Between

Go, go, Amy Jo

Watch Amy Jo Johnson’s debut feature film, The Space Between, for free, exclusively on Movies On Us.

 

If the name sounds familiar but you can’t quite place it, you’re probably more familiar with one of her characters, Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger on the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series.

 

It’s been 18 years since we last saw her spin kick her way through armies of Putties, and since then she’s also gone on to appear in other series like Felicity, Flashpoint, and Covert Affairs. She’s also showed her musical prowess as a singer/songwriter with the release of her three albums.

 

The Space Between is Amy Jo Johnson’s directorial debut and first feature length film – which she also wrote and stars in (it’s morphin’ time indeed). A true passion project, Amy Jo funded the film via Indiegogo and raised 179% of what she needed to produce the film.

 

This heartfelt indie follows a proud father, Mitch (Michael Cram, Flashpoint), who finds out his daughter isn’t actually his, but the result of his wife’s, Jackie (Sonya Salomaa, The Intruders), affair. The devastated Mitch embarks on a journey to find answers, learns a lot about himself, his ability to connect, and embracing his shortcomings.

 

The characters are earnest and well portrayed, and draw you in with interesting backstories. We wish we had more time to learn about some of the characters and their unique situations – aside from just being representative of the idea that everyone has baggage and is dealing with something. But overall the story is well established and the message the film carries is solid.

 

The Space Between is quirky and fun, but not in a pushy or forced way. It doesn’t try to reach beyond what it is and does a good job of playing to its strengths.
Visually, the production value is there – it’s shot beautifully, and Amy Jo’s keen eye and attention to detail will only continue to evolve. It’s a strong debut, a charming and sweet film, and an enjoyable hour and a half of your time. Besides, it’s free. And exclusive. So what the heck, try something new.

 

 

Survive a Rough Night and get free horror in honor of IT

Girls just wanna have fun

Girls night. Woo-hoo. Bachelorette party. WOO-HOO! Drinks, some debauchery, and maybe at worst a rough morning – what could go wrong? Famous. Last. Words.  When a wild bachelorette party takes a turn for the worse (think Hangover meets Very Bad Things, but funnier and not as very bad), these friends take their lemons and make a demented and dark, but funny, lemonade.

 

Rough Night is available for rent now. And if you decide you like the lemonade and want to add it to your collection, you’ll get the chance to buy it for a discounted price. What? Yup.

 

This shark is his own feeding frenzy

Forget needing a bigger boat, you need a bigger shark (and maybe a bigger TV to watch it on). Well, it’s your lucky day. Because apparently someone else also thought two- and three-headed sharks weren’t enough. And they decided to go straight for the flesh (and the flush) with 5-Headed Shark Attack. (What happened to 4-headed shark? Probably eaten by 5-headed shark.)

 

It’s campy, it’s CGI, and the acting is to be expected. But hey, it’s a freaking five headed shark. You know you’re curious. And you know that you’ll probably regret NOT watching this more than you’d regret ACTUALLY watching this. How will you live not satisfying your curiosity? Come on – dive right in, the water’s fine.

 

It is coming. Get ready with free horror

 

We’re pretty sure IT is gonna be scary. Like seriously scary. So why not build up your scare tolerance with some free frights, scares, and terror?

Check out Final Draft, a tale of just how crazy writers block can drive some people; the legendary Leatherface as he rears his, um, face in Texas Chainsaw, the 2013 adaptation of the rip-roaring Sawyer family; and Bear, a creature feature you’ll want to get your paws on if you like unbearable suspense and close quarters.

 

And in case you’re still emotionally stable after all of that, we’ve also got 28 more titles in our The Stuff of Nightmares collection that you can watch free with Movies On Us.

 

Watch at home while it’s still in theaters

Banderas is back! (Well starting tomorrow.) And this time he’s gone from gun slinging mariachi to a serious Glock and roller in the action comedy Gun Shy. He’s a rich rock star whose girlfriend is kidnapped, and he’s getting her back no matter what. Because love, and stuff.

 

Or check out The Limehouse Golem, which sounds like a creature feature, but it’s actually a crime drama (no golems were harmed in the making of this movie) set in Victorian London, also available for rent tomorrow. It’s blood in the streets, on the walls, and written into cryptic messages (jolly old England indeed) – and it can be in your home even though it’s still in theaters.

 

 

 

 

 

New this week – Wonder Woman (with Extras+), rent Baywatch, free canine companionship, and guess what day it is…

All the world is waiting for you… (to get) Wonder Woman

 

 

Today is the day you can discover the mythical island of Themyscira, the Amazon warriors, and of course, Wonder Woman.

 

This fan favorite addition to the DC Extended Universe is now available to add to your collection. Get it in up to 4K UHD with Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound for a truly wondrous experience with richer, more vibrant colors, and deeper, more immersive sound. So don your warrior uniform (hey, sweats have good fighting mobility) and watch instantly on Vudu.

 

Discover even more on mobile with Extras+

 

 

Get the movie and then watch it on your mobile device for the exclusive Extras+ experience. Watch in portrait mode and experience bonuses synced to the movie, movie trivia, a digital comic, and so much more! You can also get behind the camera with Filmmaking & Beyond and discover the Warriors of Wonder Women, see original artwork and storyboards, and much more!

 

And for the collector, a Walmart exclusive Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD version is also available for just $29.96. It includes a bonus scene not seen in theaters and a wearable tiara. (Wear it on casual Friday!)

 

 

Have something different for dinner

 

Get a different kind of dinner guest with Beatriz at Dinner and It Comes at Night. In a quirky and entertaining critique of our times, Beatriz at Dinner sees Selma Hayek and John Lithgow butt heads over dinner as their differing socio-political backgrounds give each other indigestion.

 

 

It Comes at Night is an apocalyptic thriller that follows a family who lets another into their secure home. As you’d predict, things get complicated and trust wanes. Then chaos and terror breaks out… or does it break in?

 

Beach. Ball.

 

 

New comedy duo Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron have their pecs on deck in Baywatch, now available for rent. Get all the campy humor, swimsuits, and slo-mo that made the original TV series a household name starting today.

 

And because ball is life, you not only play it, you watch it. And now you can rent 2017 NBA Champions: Golden State Warriors and watch their return to the top after a heartbreaking 2016 season. Re-live the entire season, from training camp to their first at home Championship win, with two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, as well as the 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala.

 

Free puppies

 

Well not really, but watching dogs is just as good – at least that’s what we’ve been telling ourselves ever since our mom said no.

 

 

So head on over to Movies On Us and check out the true story of a dog that united an Australia mining town with Red Dog; portraits of actors, musicians, authors, and designers and their dogs with My Dog: An Unconditional Love Story (famous people are just like us!); real Scottie dogs from Scotland in The Adventures of Greyfriars Bobby; and an animated feature, Jock: The Hero Dog.

 

FYI – We’re judging you

 

Especially if you didn’t know that today is Judgement Day, the day when Skynet becomes self-aware and unleashes nuclear annihilation that basically kills mankind. To celebrate this fictional scenario (we hope) we’ve got deals on select Terminator titles during our Judgement Day Sale. Want movies starting at just $4.99? No problemo. We suggest you watch at 2:14 am (ET) and see what happens.
