New this week: Annihilation, Death Wish, and The Strangers: Prey at Night

Plus, Range 15, Not a War Story, and rent Red Sparrow, Game Night, and more

 

Get ready for Annihilation

 

Annihilation is sci-fi at its best – both mind-bending and mind-opening. Directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina), Annihilation is filled with eye-popping visuals and a thoughtfulness and intelligence that stay with you long after the movie is over. Watch it today in up to 4K + HDR. And for you bundle fans, we’ve also got an Annihilation/Arrival bundle that features both movies in up to 4K + HDR.

 

Also, be sure to enter to win one of five Annihilation prize packs in our Annihilation contest!

 

Your Death Wish is our command

 

2018 is the new 1974 and Bruce Willis is the new Charles Bronson (sans the hair). But Death Wish is still the same bad-ass movie it’s always been. Sure the cities and the characters have changed somewhat, but the resulting wanton vigilante justice it serves up is still colder than a winter day (in either NY or Chi-town).

 

Truth is stranger than fiction

 

You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth…that The Strangers: Prey at Night is based on true events. Terrible, horrible, true events. You’ve had to wait 10 years for this sequel, but now that your prayers have been answered it’s time to lock yourself in and watch tonight.

 

New rentals:

Forget Cards Against Humanity, murder is what makes Game Night memorable.

 

Blondes have more fun, and blondes who become the Red Sparrow have a killer time.

 

If Early Man is any indicator, the downfall of mankind began a long time ago. Watch it in up to 4K + HDR.

 

Do you even Range 15, bro?

 

Like military movies? Like zombie movies? How about a zombie movie that stars actual veterans – including two Medal of Honor recipients – and that was backed by two veteran-run companies? Did we blow your mind yet? Because if not, Range 15 absolutely will.

 

This black comedy features over 80 veterans, hordes of zombies, and a ton of jokes that you’ll feel like you shouldn’t laugh at but will – and that’s ok.

 

 

And if you can’t get enough of Range 15, we highly recommend Not a War Story, the documentary about the making of Range 15. It’s full of insight into why this group of veterans was so committed to making the movie despite not having any movie-making experience.

 

Both movies are coming in hot and available now. And be sure get your movie buddy in the fight by yelling “fire in the hole” really loud before you hit play.

New This Week

Hello? Is it free movies you're looking for? Watch Don't Hang Up for free on Movies On Us.

 

Don’t Hang Up will have you thinking twice about how you handle prank callers. This one has your number, and your number is up.

 

Don't keep this to yourself - you can watch The Keeping Room for free on Movies On Us.

 

The Keeping Room proves that #metoo isn’t a new thing to three young women who are forced to defend themselves and their home from to renegade Union soldiers.

 

She's a super freaky girl, mostly because she might be a sociopath. Find out when you watch Anna for free on Movies On Us.

 

In Anna, well, Anna basically goes bananas. Is she or isn’t she a sociopath? The guy hired to tap her memories is about to find out, and he’s going to regret it.

 

Royals say cheese. It's not a burger, but a meaty documentary on Prince William's wedding

 

And while everyone is talking about the royal wedding, we are not. Nor are we showing it. But in honor of it, you can watch William and Kate: A Royal Love Story and catch his older brother’s wedding for free.

 

Not your cup of tea? Check out all our other new movies this week.

 

 

I Need an Anti-Hero

 

So Bonnie Tyler didn’t quite sing about these guys, but given that these anti-heroes are strong and fast, and free (as well as fresh from the fight), maybe she should have.

 

Some mercs have a mouth, this one has a tank. Watch the cult classic, Tank Girl, for free on Movies On Us.

 

Before there was the merc with a mouth, there was the girl with a tank – aptly named Tank Girl. She too has moxie and sass and she dishes it out with reckless abandon. Wade would be proud.

 

It's not a game of Russian Roulette. You can't lose when you watch Revolver for free on Movies On Us.

 

Guy Ritchie. Jason Statham. Nuff said. If you haven’t seen the fast-talking, action-packed Revolver, you need to. So why not watch it for free?

 

Don't make no difference to you? It should. Watching Taxi Driver for free is a big deal.

 

And if you haven’t watched Taxi Driver, you should watch that too. Yeah, we’re talkin’ to you. You’re the only one here, so we must be talkin’ to you. Classic.

 

Be sure to check out these and all our other free movie collections here.

 

 

 

New Releases: Red Sparrow, Early Man, and War Dog: A Soldier’s Best Friend

Plus, rock out with Steven Tyler and rent Black Panther

 

In mother Russia, Sparrows don’t spare anyone

Jennifer Lawrence is Red Sparrow. Available now on Vudu!

 

Red. The color of passion, seduction, and lust. It’s also the color of anger, blood, revenge, and of course, Mother Russia. Throw it all in a blender and you’ve got Red Sparrow, a crazy, sexy, violent thriller that amps up the sexiness to a level that would make an Atomic Blonde blush. Slip into something more…how you say, clandestine, and watch Red Sparrow tonight.

 

Bonus for Vudu fans, get a sneak peek behind the scenes, here.

 

Four-legged force multipliers

Available now on Vudu - War Dog: A Soldier's Best Friend

 

You’ve heard the stories – camera mounted Kevlar vests, titanium teeth, and all the special training. But beyond the hype, this is the true story of man’s best friend. War Dog: A Soldier’s Best Friend is a deeply personal documentary that sheds light on the stories of real special forces soldiers and their K9 companions. Watch tonight and gain a newfound respect for just how far your four-legged friend would go for you.

 

Rock, paper, bronze

It's time to get Stone Age with Early Man, available now on Vudu.

 

From the team that brought you Chicken Run, comes something of historic proportion – Early Man. It’s Stone Age vs Bronze Age in this hilarious (and toothy) animated adventure that features the voices of Tom Hiddleston (aka Loki), Maisie Williams (aka Arya Stark), and more. Bronze may be for third place, but Early Man is family-friendly gold.

 

Wakanda. Awesome 100% of the time.

Now available for rent - Black Panther

 

As far as panthers go, Chadwick Boseman works 100% of the time, every time (unlike some other panthers). Marvel’s Black Panther is truly a marvel and a force to be reckoned with. It’s smart, full of action, humor, and some intriguing social allegories. And it’s a must watch. And a must watch again. Good thing it’s now available for rent.

 

More movies you shouldn’t miss

No need to Dream On, you can watch Steven Tyler: Out on a Limb now on Vudu.

 

Steven Tyler: Out on a Limb: Walk this way to the riveting documentary, starring none other than…Steven Tyler. If you don’t want to miss a thing, then don’t miss this.

 

Watch Monkey King 3 now available on Vudu, it's bananas.

 

Monkey King 3:  Never heard of the Monkey King? Think Peter Rabbit meets Loki meets Maui, but with kung-fu superpowers. Check out this latest installment of this blockbuster Chinese kung-fu trilogy.

 

Watch Terminal now on Vudu

 

Terminal (Still in theaters): A crazy, twisted thriller that pits assassin against assassin in an Atomic Blonde-esque visual style. You had us at Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, and Mike Myers.

 

Revenge is now being served up on Vudu.

 

Revenge (Still in theaters): This revenge thriller is served up cold with extra helpings of brutality and vengeance. People are saying it’s pushing the envelope of the genre; we say it might push you over the edge.

Jk, we’ve been waiting for this movie longer than Thanos has been searching for Infinity Stones. And now that it’s here, and in 4K + HDR, we’re excited to experience all the lifelike color depth and richness that comes with it – no ingestion of heart-shaped herbs necessary.

 

And if you’ve got an Apple TV, Vudu is now the only place you can now watch in up to 4K + HDR. (Make sure you have the latest version of the Vudu Player for Apple TV.) Is this what it feels like to be king?

 

Bad blood, bad morals, and bad dudes

Watch the action-packed movie, Paradox, on Vudu today!

 

Get ready for a martial arts melee when you watch Paradox. If the action in Black Panther isn’t enough, then this action-packed movie will definitely kick it up a notch – think The Raid: Redemption meets Taken. Actually, why think about it at all? Just watch it.

 

Watch the dark comedy, The Party, on Vudu today!

 

We don’t know what kind of party The Party is, but when a movie opens with a gun to the face we’re pretty sure things are going to get pretty interesting. This dark comedy features an all-star cast (Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, and more) and is as sharp as it is funny.

 

Watch the gripping foreign film, Graduation, on Vudu today!

 

And while it’s a little heavy, Graduation is worth the watch. Find out just how far a father will go to protect his daughter’s future when morality is tossed out the window like a cheap graduation hat.

Expel the bad when you watch The Cleanse on Vudu today!

 

Or clean up your act with The Cleanse. This surreal dramedy features a heartbroken Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), who finds himself at a spiritual retreat expelling his negativity – literally.
