Join the Avengers: Infinity War #VuduViewingParty

Avengers (Fans) Unite!

 

There was an idea, to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if we could become something more. So when they needed us, we could have the viewing parties that they never could.

 

That’s right! We’re celebrating Avengers: Infinity War with a #VuduViewingParty. Join us this Friday, August 3rd at 7 pm (PT) for an event ten years in the making. It’s the ultimate showdown (until Avengers 4) and you can watch with us, in up to 4K + HDR. 

 

And FYI, it’s your last day to pre-order. So if you act quickly, you can put an extra smile on your face with $3 movie credit when Avengers: Infinity War is released! Full terms here.

 

Get ready for our reveal

 

 

There’s a lot of secrecy around the MCU, but we don’t like secrets, so we’re spilling ours – the Russo Brothers will be here to host the Avengers: Infinity War Viewing Party! So don’t miss your opportunity to bro out with the brothers responsible for killing off your favorite Marvel characters.

 

Joining is a snap. Too soon?

 

If you’ve never attended a #VuduViewingParty before, we’re going to assume that you were locked up on Knowhere as part of the Collector’s, uh, collection.  No, wait, we’re going to assume that you’ve been living under a stone – an Infinity Stone. Boom. But yeah, it’s easy to get in on the fun.

 

To join, all you need to do is:

 

  1. Get Avengers: Infinity War
  2. RSVP for the Viewing Party
  3. Follow us on Twitter @VuduFans

 

Then, at 7 pm (PT) on Friday, start your movie with us and hop on to Twitter. Join the conversation using #VuduViewingParty, and answer trivia and maybe win some great prizes. One of which may or may not be a 40” 4K TV! (Spoiler alert, it is.) So, join the fight and be a part of the Vudu Viewing Party. You might not feel so good if you miss it.

 

 

 

 

DON’T MISS A THING WITH READY PLAYER ONE

And our Ready Player One #VuduViewingParty

 

Besides eye-popping action, next-level effects, and a killer 80s pop soundtrack, Steven Spielberg’s sprawling sci-fi epic, Ready Player One, boasts a treasure trove of nerd-stalgic pop-culture shoutouts that anyone who grew in the last three decades is sure to enjoy.

 

You can even experience the pulse-pounding, player vs. player action as it was meant to be seen, in full 4K + HDR (Dolby Vision and HDR10).

 

If you want to discuss the amazing homages to your favorite films with other eagle-eyed fans, we’ve got the party for you. Tune in tonight at 7pm PT (10pm ET) to our #VuduViewingParty and tweet along for the chance to win prize packs loaded up with iconic gear from your favorite franchises (including a few actual props from the set of Ready Player One). Click here to RSVP.

 

 

 

To fully appreciate the layers of meta mashup madness (which may require multiple viewings), snag our exclusive Disc + Digital Collector’s Set complete with a digital copy you can watch instantly (HDX) – you know, in case you had a #VuduViewingParty to attend, a Blu-ray to collect (shipped from Walmart.com on 7/24), a Ready Player One Rubik’s Cube, and sticker sheets.

 

 

CHECK THOSE REFERENCES

 

Ready Player One brings the 80s and 90s heat with Easter eggs from some of the most beloved animated classics, caped crusades, sci-fi smash hits, and horror hall-of-famers from geekdoms golden age. Check out some of the most unexpected and awesome appearances, complete with movie links for some of the characters’ (and sweet rides’) most iconic outings:

 

*SPOILERS* abound, so proceed with caution!

 

 

The Dark Knight, The Clown Prince of Crime, and the Maid of Mischief are all present and accounted for in the Oasis (Ready Player One’s virtual adventure-scape). Batman can be seen scaling Mount Everest while Harley and the Joker appear as playable characters within the game

 

 

 

Between a Star-Trek-themed funeral and a discarded bat’leth (blink and you’ll miss it), the Oasis may very well be the REAL final frontier.

 

 

 

They may not need roads, but time-travelling The DeLorean from Back to the Future handles them just fine with Wade behind the wheel.

 

 

 

That;’s not just any T. Rex terrorizing the racetrack with King Kong. Fans will immediately recognize the noble beast from Spielberg’s other larger-than-life Sci-Fi thriller: Jurassic Park.

 

 

 

The Iron Giant is admittedly hard to miss, playing a huge role in the climactic fight of good versus evil, and deservedly so given the warm place he holds in every 90s kid’s heart.

 

Check out Vulture’s fully comprehensive list here, and we’ll see you at the #VuduViewingParty!

 

 

THE CHALLENGE IS ON WITH READY PLAYER ONE

The Adventure You’ve Been Waiting For

 

In case you haven’t heard, Ready Player One has everything – like, literally everything – you loved as a kid all rolled up (like Fruit Roll-Ups) in one jaw-dropping movie.

 

Post-apocalyptic wasteland? Check. The dark side of cutting-edge technology? Check. More 80’s pop-culture references than you can shake a Snarf at? That’s a big, Voltron-sized check.

 

Adapted from Ernest Cline’s genre-splicing hit novel, Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is serving up all the nostalgic and sci-fi epicness your flux capacitor can handle, and we’ve got it in up to mind-blowing 4K + HDR. So if you’ve got Dolby Vision and HDR10-capable devices, your favorite Easter eggs will be easier to spot with the richer and more vibrant colors of HDR.

 

HE’S GOT GAME

 

Ready Player One tells the story of Wade Watts, an elite gamer on the hunt for a hidden Easter egg that controls the fate of the Oasis, the virtual world where he and the rest of humanity spend all their time.

 

Like any life-or-death scavenger hunt worth its loot, Wade’s quest involves puzzles within puzzles like the time-traveling (and suspiciously familiar) Zemeckis Cube. You can get your own limited-edition cube (non-time traveling, unfortunately), stickers, a digital HDX copy, Blu-ray, and DVD with our exclusive Disc + Digital Collector’s Set.

 

With Disc + Digital you get the best of both worlds. Stream the movie immediately (in HDX), and get a collectible physical copy shipped to you free on 7/24. Disc will be shipped by Walmart.com; free shipping offer expires 7/24 – so don’t wait. Snag some extra goodies for your collection and solve the puzzle – IF you’re up to the challenge. Who know’s maybe your Rubik’s Cube will be a time machine. (But it won’t.)

 

MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE

 

And just like Parvizal (Wade) and Atr3mis (Samantha) team up with the rebellion, why quest alone when you can join a party? Join our guild of superfans this Friday at 7 p.m. (PT) for our Ready Player One #VuduViewingParty. We’ll have live behind-the-scenes facts, trivia questions, and game-changing prizes – including actual props from the movie. Joining is fun and easy.

 

 

Your mission is as follows:

1. Purchase Ready Player One on Vudu
2. RSVP to the event and follow @vudufans on Twitter
3. Join us on Friday, 7/6, and start your movie with us at 7 p.m. PT
4. Be part of the conversation using the hashtag #VuduViewingParty

 

We’ll see you in the Oasis.
