NEW THIS WEEK: KINGS, TULLY, AND MORE

PLUS NEW RENTALS AND MOVIES STILL IN THEATERS

 

LEADING LADIES

 

Whether you’re in the mood for a heartfelt historical dramatization, a creepy crime thriller with a twist, or a dreamy indie drama, we’ve got fresh, women-led winners sure to make your movie night.

 

 

One fateful day lit the fuse on a city-wide powder keg. Two neighbors (Halle Berry and Daniel Craig) just might reach a new understanding if they can get through the 1992 Los Angeles riots in Kings.

 

 

 

Boy meets girl. Boy stalks and kidnaps girl. Girl isn’t going to stay put without a fight. See what happens next when Rosy makes her move.

 

 

She’s no Mary Poppins. When Charlize Theron’s Marlo is stretched too thin caring for her three young kids, Tully the night nanny arrives to make sure the household will never be the same.

 

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Renee may not have gotten a Cinderella-style miracle makeover, but she definitely thinks she has. Find out if that’s enough to make it in the modern world in I Feel Pretty.

 

 

Every dog has its day, and this isn’t it. With all of Megasaki City’s dogs banished to an Isle of Dogs, it will take one boy and a whole lot of courage to bring them back in this fun-filled Wes Anderson romp.

 

 

Meow they’ve done it. America’s worst state troopers take on Canada’s meanest mounties in Super Troopers 2, with all the pranks, bickering, and nonstop nonsense their duties demand.

 

 

When a woman captured by human traffickers reaches out for help, the two couples she contacts are drawn into a web of violence and corruption. Escape is anything but guaranteed in Traffik.

 

 

Should college students in movies learn not to mess around with evil forces beyond their control? Probably. Is it spooky fun to watch them try and escape a murderous game of Truth or Dare. Yes. Yes it is.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

Dozens of covertly counterfeited blue diamonds. Multiple deadly factions wrestling for power. One increasingly desperate Keanu. If you’re looking for action, you may want to visit Siberia.

 

 

It was supposed to be a miracle. It turned out to be a curse. Witness the horror as two priests document their findings in an Irish asylum at The Devil’s Doorway.

 

 

Part I Am Legend. Part Shaun of the Dead. All tension. Trapped alone in a high-rise apartment surrounded by zombies, one man must decide what to do the day after The Night Eats the World.

 

 

Watch A Quiet Place, Rampage, Isle of Dogs and More

The Silent Treatment

On The Office, John Krasinski wrangled Dunder Mifflin into a silence contest. But he takes it even further in his debut horror film, A Quiet Place – with the first line of dialogue not appearing until about 40 minutes into the movie.

 

A Quiet Place is unlike any horror movie you’ve ever seen, or heard, since the entire premise is based on silence, so you don’t really ever hear much at all. Because when you do, it means someone is probably about to die.

 

So check out this amazingly tense and tantalizingly suspenseful movie. Silence has never been so frightening. Get it in up to 4K + HDR.

 

 

And if you’re worried about watching it alone, just join us this Friday for our A Quiet Place #VuduViewingParty. Join us and a few hundred of our close friends as we watch together, chat (silently on Twitter), and play trivia for great prizes. Get the movie and swing by on Friday at 7 p.m. (PT).

 

Info and RSVP here.

 

Wreck it Like Ralph, Lizzie, and George

Not that Ralph, the one from Rampage. Yeah, the video game where a giant gorilla (George), lizard (Lizzie), and wolf (Ralph) lay waste to city after city. That’s funny, the movie plot of Rampage is essentially the same as the game – and that’s why it’s awesome. Not to mention it stars Dwayne Johnson – and everything he touches turns to gold. Obviously. Enjoy it in up to 4K + HDR.

 

Because Wes Anderson

 

No, really, because Wes Anderson. That’s pretty much the best way to explain Isle of Dogs – a movie that follows an intrepid 12-year old whose search for his dog takes him to a government-sanctioned island of canine exiles. It’s charming, a little bleak, hilarious, and even weird, all mashed up together. Yup, you guessed it, because Wes Anderson. Think The Fantastic Mr. Fox up on caffeine…yes, it’s possible – just watch.

 

Also worth checking out

 

Homeschooled kids. We all knew one. Adventures in Public School is a humorous and poignant look at all the rites of passage that homeschooled kids don’t get but wish they did.

 

 

Right now everyone may have World Cup fever, but All for One is cycling documentary worth checking out. Follow five teammates on their journey to become Australia’s first ProTour cycling team. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie.

 

 

If you’ve been wondering where Mike Tyson has been, he’s been filming “China Thalesman.” Sorry, had to do it. China Salesman is like a crazy 80’s throwback action explosion, with an eight-minute, all-out slugfest of Iron Mike vs. Seven Segal as a crowning achievement. Yes, they fight. Yes, it’s just as you’d imagine it’d be – glorious.

 

 

The Endless is a haunting ride that delivers one wild ride. It’s got the eeriness of Annihilation – it even seems to have the same sound effects – but it really creates a tense and utterly confusing atmosphere that will leave you questioning everything you’ve ever believed about reality.

 

 

And if you’re looking for really dark horror, then check out Incident in a Ghostland. From Pascal Laugier, the director of the French torture horror favorite, Martyrs, Incident in a Ghostland is equally tortured and torturous.

New This Week: Blockers, Beirut, Furious, and more

Plus, new rentals and Movies still in theaters

 

Rock Out Now That Blockers Is Out

Parents, kids, and prom night shenanigans - Watch Blockers, now on Vudu!

Blockers. Maybe you’ve been the victim of one. Or maybe worse, you are one. In either case, it’s more enjoyable to watch John Cena, Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and Kathryn Newton try their best to block their kids on prom night.

 

Watch and laugh as John Cena lets his guard down – among other things (did you see the trailer?) – and becomes the over-sensitive, helicopter parent we always knew he was. WWVDD (What would Vin Diesel do)? He’d watch this movie.

 

The Politics of Streaming

 

They say it’s not polite to talk about politics. We say, they never said anything about watching them. So check out these new releases that just happen to have an element of political thriller to them.

 

Watch the cat and mouse drama of Beirut, now available on Vudu!

 

You’d have to be a madman to be a diplomat in Beirut in the early 80s. But John Hamm, is (reluctantly) up to the challenge of negotiating the release of a CIA spy. Beirut is filled with espionage, geopolitics, and civil war – and cool sunglasses. No need for cat and mouse, Beirut will put you front and center of the action.

 

Furious is furiously entertaining, watch it now on Vudu!

 

THIS…IS…Russia? What do you get when you cross 300 and legendary Russian folk story mainstay Evpaty Kolovrat? Furious. And trust us, it is furious. Barbarian politics usually come in the form of ultimatums, and Evpaty and his army don’t take too kindly to demands after the destruction of their village. Revenge is sweet, and it’s available now.

 

Based on the best-selling book, watch The Yellow Birds on Vudu!

 

The Yellow Birds takes a dramatic look at the politics of war, unwavering loyalty to the chain of command, and the trials of returning to civilian life.  Based on the novel of the same name by Veteran Kevin Powers, The Yellow Birds is available to watch now while it’s still in theaters.

 

Blackmail, double-crosses...just another day in politics - watch Affairs of State on Vudu

 

And you can’t have politics without some blackmail? Good thing Affairs of State happens to have a post office full of it. More New York Post than Washington Post, it’s got plenty of scandals, treachery, and drama – you know, all the everyday stuff of DC. It’s in theaters now, but you can watch at home, or anywhere, with Vudu.

 

Rent Pacific Rim Uprising and Unsane

Watch these Jaeger masters in action in Pacific Rim Uprising, now available for rent

 

Pacific Rim Uprising is rising up quickly as a Vudu favorite. And starting today, you can rent it in up to 4K + HDR. Check out this Jaeger-sized sequel that gives you more Kaiju and more Jaegers – not to mention more destruction – and get up to 30 days to start the movie and 48 hours to watch.

 

If Unsane is on your list and you know it, but don't really want to own it, rent Unsane on Vudu tonight

 

Know what’s insane about Unsane? It was shot on an iPhone 7. All of it. So we’re not sure who’s crazier, Claire Foy, who thinks she sees her stalker everywhere, or director Steven Soderbergh, for actually shooting a movie on a phone.  Rent it today and watch it on your phone. #meta

 

Soccer To Me

This movie is golden, grab the fam and watch Alex & Me tonight on Vudu

The World Cup is in full effect – and if your family has World Cup fever, Alex & Me will keep you from getting a red card. Starring Olympic gold medalist, World Cup winner, and international soccer star, Alex Morgan, Alex & Me is a surefire gooooooaaaaaaaal that the whole family will enjoy.

 

 

FATHER’S DAY SEQUELS TO WATCH WITH DAD

Summer Sequels, A Summer Tradition

 

Summer means vacations, bbqs, and of course, summer sequels. And we’ve got plenty of summer sequels in our Summer Sequels Sale to help you keep the action going. So save, and save again, and check out the sale here.

 

Dad Bod, Another Summer Tradition

 

Continuing the tradition of summer sequels, we’ve got the continued tales of all your favorite big-screen dads to kick your Father’s Day off right. Whether its international intrigue, family feuds, or just good old-fashioned fun, these fathers and kids have some unfinished business sure to keep you and the dad(s) in your life entertained.

 

 

Two dads. Two granddads. One step-Cena. Daddy’s Home 2 has all the masculine (and sensitive) energy you, and your family, probably want to handle.

 

 

First came love, then came marriage, now there’s a new grandkid and a new baby on the way. It comes with the territory when you’re Father of the Bride (Part II).

 

 

That moment when your dad gets in more trouble than you do. The man-boys of summer are back in Grown Ups 2 to prove to themselves and their kids that growing up is still very hard to do.

 

 

Don’t ever take sides against the family. Decades and continents apart, a father and his sons will go through whatever (and whoever) it takes to realize their American dreams in The Godfather Part II.

 

 

He just couldn’t wait to be king, now his princess wants an adventure of her own. The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride has a lion’s share of fun for dads and cubs alike.

 

 

He has a very particular set of skills… and staying out of trouble isn’t one of them. In Taken 3, this dad on the run will need his daughter’s help if he’s going to survive to see another sequel.

 

 

The spy world’s most devious dad is up to his old tricks when he’s not up to his nose in chores. The whole family can watch Gru gets back to badness in Despicable Me 3.
