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.

 

 

PRE-ORDER ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, PLUS NEW MOVIES AND RENTALS

WE’RE BUGGIN OUT

 

 

Just when you thought it was safe to leave crumbs on the carpet, Paul Rudd is back as Ant-Man, the hard-to-spot hero with full-power fists. In Ant-Man and the Wasp he’s joined by more than just his usual crew of critters; Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp is ready to shrink, sting, and take names against the mysterious, phase-shifting Ghost.

 

If you’ve been picking up on the buzz (86% on Rotten Tomatoes), you can pre-order now to get all the ant-astic action and laughs in eye-popping 4K + HDR first in your MyVudu library.

 

TURN UP THE TENSION

 

Push the coffee table away from the couch, because these pulse-pounding new releases will have you on the edge of your seat.

 

 

Scared straight programs are rarely fun, especially when the officer you’re riding with ends up in the crossfire of a deadly, drawn-out bank robbery. Bullets fly, bodies fall, and Nic Cage dials his signature yell-acting to 11 in 211.

 

 

How far will you go to help a perfect stranger? Traffik takes on the real-world horrors of modern-day human trafficking in a twisty thriller with danger at every turn.

 

 

It’s all fun and games until someone gets ritually dismembered by restless spirits. The social media ghost hunters of Before Someone Gets Hurt have bitten off more than they can chew, and it’s biting back.

 

 

Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams get a second chance at forbidden love in Disobedience, but taking it will mean risking family, friends, community, and thousands of years of tradition.

 

HOT NEW RENTALS

 

 

They don’t go bump in the night, but if you do they just might eat your family. Beware the sound-seeking, farm-crashing alien abominations of A Quiet Place.

 

 

One bad decision can last a lifetime, or end a life. Revisit the tragic events that grabbed headlines and forever changed the Kennedy name in Chappaquidick.

 

 

If you thought King Kong was bad, imagine he had a same-sized wolf and crocodile to pal around with. Now imagine the three of them facing off with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Now stop imagining, and watch Rampage.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

 

A genetically-enhanced cyborg kidnaps a special agent’s daughter to harvest the girl’s heart for evil purposes. One problem: the agent is played by Jackie Chan. No need for tickets to the sci-fi scuffle of Bleeding Steel; you can catch every punch, kick, and explosion from the comfort of home.

 

CURRENT TV SEASON

 

 

Ghosts have the Ghostbusters, bad guys have Superman, and the world’s nastiest zits have Dr. Pimple Popper. Catch every episode of this gross-out guilty pleasure within days of it airing, or treat yourself with the whole season.

 

 

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.

Ready for Ready Player One? How about meow?

Don’t hate the player, hate the game

 

Ultimately, Ready Player One is like game-ception – a game within a movie about a game. But even if you don’t want to get that meta, it’s a heck of a ride down nostalgia lane. So much so, you’ll need to watch it more than a few times to catch them all. So actually, even the act of watching the movie is a game. #gnarly

 

It’s like a nostalgia explosion

 

There are so many 80’s gamer, movie, and pop culture references in Ready Player One that even the experts can’t agree. We’ve seen a list that covers 120, and a list that covers over 200. (Where’s the beef? There’s the beef.)

 

So take a chill pill and watch it today, in up to 4K + HDR (totally the best option, no duh). Or you can even pick it up in an exclusive Disc + Digital Collector’s Set with a digital HD copy to watch now, and a Blu-ray, DVD, Rubik’s Cube (Word), and stickers. Order now and qualify for free shipping until the physical release date on 7/24. Fulfillment by Walmart.com.

 

Meow, meow, that’s the sound of da police

 

KRS-One might have written the song differently if he knew some cops like Rabbit, Thorny, Mac, Farva, and Foster. These law-lacking LEOs are back in the hotly anticipated Super Troopers 2, and you need to watch it right meow. Catch up with our favorite Super Troopers as they get mounted and play Mountie to help resolve a border dispute requires, erm, America’s finest.

 

And to get you in the mood, in case you weren’t already, here’s a bit of a sneak peek into what happened to the super-est Super Trooper couple (after they got in the mood):

 

Call us nutty, but we feel pretty too

 

Amy Schumer takes another dig at superficiality in I Feel Pretty, which reminds us a lot of a prettied up The Nutty Professor. Not that it’s a bad thing. It’s got an interesting twist in that the transformation is entirely in her head versus any actual physical transformation. So you’re saying our self-esteem and sense of worth is entirely up to us? Whaaaaa? It’s a simple message wrapped up in a hilarious comedy, and it’s available meow.

 

Tell the truth, do you dare to watch?

 

Truth is, we haven’t played Truth or Dare since freshman year – we’re not even sure the kids play it anymore. (Personally, we’re big fans of Cards Against Humanity – hilarious). The latest from horror production factory Blumhouse (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge), Truth or Dare is pretty much what you’d expect, but it packs a pretty twisted ending. What is it? We dare you to find out. (Ok, that was gratuitous, but whatever.) Watch it in up to 4K + HDR (theatrical and unrated director’s cut).

 

Chapp-acquitted

 

It’s almost a story too perfect to be made into a series like Serial or HBO’s The Night Of – a famous politician, a dead girl, and a car accident that went unreported for ten hours. Chappaquiddick brings us into the story of the fateful car accident involving Ted Kennedy and a young campaign strategist. Unanswered questions, controversy, and even calls of conspiracy surround this story that gripped America during the summer of 1969. Watch it now in up to 4K + HDR.

 

 

 

The Domestics. Anything But Domesticated.

in Theaters And Available Now On Vudu 

 

Go from Tupperware parties to terrifying raiding parties in The Domestics, available now on Vudu

Kate Bosworth (Straw Dogs, Blue Crush) and Tyler Hoechlin (MTV’s Teen Wolf, Supergirl) star alongside Lance Reddick (John Wick) in The Domestics, now available on Vudu.

BETTY CROCKER DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE

 

 

In this post-apocalyptic thriller, a dystopian world emerges after our government turns on us. And then society turns on itself.

 

The result? Americans divide into tribal factions: Gamblers, Sheets, Plowboys, Cherries, Nailers – whose names happen to reflect their violent M.O’s (foreshadowing, anyone?) – and Domestics, those who try to live as blissfully as they did before society crumbled. #ignoranceisbliss

 

 

So of course, we find our intrepid pair of Domestics embarking on the worst road-trip ever through each tribe’s “terror-tories.” That’s when things get interesting.

 

Think Mad Max meets The Walking Dead (sans zombies) meets The Crazies, but you know, with a bit of a love story (in case it’s date night).

 

So, get ready to watch how far these Domestics are willing to go to survive, while you take comfort in the fact that you don’t have to go anywhere for movie night. Except maybe to the fridge for snacks.

 

Watch The Domestics, now available to buy or rent.
