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.

 

 

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 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.
