Watch The Commuter, Curvature, The Post, and more

Also, Rent Insidious: The Last Key and Father Figures, and watch free movies

 

Come on, ride the train

 

In The Commuter, Liam Neeson is back with his very particular set of skills – but this time he’s on a train. And in true form, he’s on track to do some very bad things to some very bad people when a criminal conspiracy derails his morning commute.

 

If I could turn back time

 

Time travel is never an easy thing, ask Cher. And Curvature is a study in all the things that can go wrong when you travel back in time to help yourself solve your husband’s murder. Got time for a sci-fi thriller? There’s no time like the present. Watch it while it’s still in theaters.

 

A letter to the New York Post

 

While Public Enemy rapped about the New York Post, The Post is the true story about the Washington Post and its exposé of a government cover-up spanning three decades. That’s some big news. Watch this riveting drama now on Vudu. You read it here first.

 

Jesus Christ, Superstar

 

All we want to know is, did you catch Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert on NBC this past Easter Sunday? If not, fear not, because you can get it now on Vudu. That’s right, watch the legend Himself, as portrayed by the super-talented John Legend.

 

Now available for rent

 

Fear is the key

 

If it works for Iron Maiden, it’ll work for the demon, Key Face. Fear comes home in Insidious: The Last Key. The latest installment of the Insidious series sees Dr. Elise Rainier return to her childhood home to face the fears that launched her journey. Lock all the windows and the doors, because this franchise never fails to freak us out.

Papa don’t preach

 

Father Figures finds Ed Helms and Owen Wilson on a quest to find their biological father, only to find there are a few possibilities. Four to be exact – which is probably more preaching than Madonna would ever want. Don’t worry, dad jokes not included.

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.

Watch The Greatest Showman, Father Figures, and Insidious: The Last Key

Plus, free movies and “still in theaters” movies available on Vudu

 

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s showtime

 

PT Barnum once said that “The noblest art is that of making others happy,” so we’re pretty sure he’d be impressed with The Greatest Showman. He also said “There’s a sucker born every minute,” so don’t be one; watch the movie that Vudu users have rated 5-stars.

 

It’s got singing and dancing, and it’s a wildly fun and colorful tribute to the man who brought us The Greatest Show on Earth. So, prepare to grin ear to ear like, well, a kid at a circus.

 

So much dad bod

 

What happens when you don’t have a father figure you can look up to? You end up like Owen Wilson and Ed Helms in this buddy/bromedy, Father Figures, about two brothers on a quest for their father.

 

Their choices? A former financial investor/criminal, a veterinarian, Terry Bradshaw (as himself), and one of Terry’s former teammates. (At least Darth Vader isn’t an option.) Watch, laugh, and be glad that you’re not their brother.

 

Unlock some sleepless nights

 

Insidious: The Last Key is the fourth installment of the series that goes further into The Further to creep us out. We don’t know how, but these movies get more terrifying each time.

 

This time, fear comes home thanks to Key Face – a demon with keys on his fingers (go figure) – who faces off with Dr. Elise Rainier as she takes a case that takes her back to her family home. Tonight is as good a night as any to be terrorized, isn’t it? #OnTuesdaysWeWatchTerror

 

Skip the theater with Vudu

 

Watch movies currently in theaters from the comfort of your couch. What’s this you ask? Check out our In Theaters Collection for movies that are available on Vudu even while they’re still in theaters.

 

Check out The Forgiven, a fact-based thriller that centers around real-figure Archbishop Desmond Tutu (Forest Whitaker) who confronts fictional composite Piet Blomfeld (Eric Bana) to solve an apartheid-era mystery.

 

 

And check out our new BFF Tessa Thompson (who hung out with us at our Thor: Ragnarok #VuduViewingParty) in Furlough, a road trip comedy that pits prison guard Thompson against prisoner Melissa Leo a la 48 Hours.

 

Don’t worry horror fans, we’ve got you covered too with Apartment 212, a great creature feature; Demon House, a horror documentary chronicling a house referred to as a “Portal to Hell,” and Tilt, a wonderfully deep and haunting psychological thriller.

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.

Now available: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Downsizing

Plus, new to rent, movies still in theaters, and great free movies

 

Jumanji, it’s all fun and games

 

Well, until you actually end up in the game. Then you’re in a world of trouble. (It might even bring you to your sha nah nah nah nah nah knees, knees.)

 

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle takes the board game into the digital age. This time around it’s a video game, and it draws four teens into the world of Jumanji as game avatars that are complete opposites of their real-life selves.

 

There are parallels to the original version helmed by Robin Williams, but this version does have its own voice and it makes itself known.  And the addition of Jack Black and Karen Gillan to the already popular comedy duo of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart add to the laughs rather than competes with them. And despite some oblivious character gags, there are hidden gems that come from the movie being keenly self-aware. Watch it now, in up to 4K + HDR!

 

And in case you didn’t hear, Jumanji will be our next #VuduViewingParty. If you made it to our last one you know how much fun our viewing parties are, but if not, fret not, because it’s only two and a half weeks away on 3/23 at 6:00pm (PT). RSVP now at vudu.com/viewingparty!

 

Get down with Downsizing

 

Big ideas can come in small packages. And Downsizing takes that idea to a whole new (smaller) level with the premise that shrinking people can also reduce the world’s population issues. It’s shrinking your carbon footprint by literally shrinking your footprint.

 

 

It’s an interesting sci-fi concept applied to a romantic comedy, and it makes for a funny movie – like the vodka gag you’ve seen in the trailer. But ultimately the movie reveals that mankind’s problems are still problems no matter how small we think they are.

 

Watch Downsizing today. And look for our Downsizing and Suburbicon bundle if you’re into watching Matt Damon in weird situations.

 

New to rent: Thor: Ragnarok and The Disaster Artist

 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (hopefully not a rock like Korg, that’d be weird), you’ve heard the hype about Thor: Ragnarok. But let us say, it’s worth the hype. It’s got a fresh storyline, lots of great action, Hulk (he’s a friend from work) and Valkyrie, and the addition of some Guardians of the Galaxy-type humor.

 

 

The Disaster Artist is a great movie about a film widely considered to be one of the worst movies ever made, The Room. How so, you ask? It made $1,800 against a reported $6M budget. But since then it’s garnered a cult following that apparently includes James Franco.

 

Rent both these movies now and take up to 30 days to watch. Once you start you’ll have 48 – 72 hours to watch (movie dependent).

 

Great movies you can watch for free

 

 

If you’ve made it this far, you deserve some free movies.

 

How about some great films like the Oscar-nominated The Pianist, Buried, The Men Who Stare at Goats (based on true events, seriously), Draft Day, and even Black Swan?

 

Watch any, or all, of these movies free on Movies On Us through the end of the month. See our entire list of new movies for March here.
