THE HUNT FOR THE CONAN O’BRIEN PREDATOR POP CONTINUES

THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, PART TWO

 

 

Were you one of the lucky winners in our Conan O’Brien Predator Pop Giveaway? If so, congrats! If not, don’t hang up your hunting gear just yet.

 

We’re giving you one more chance to collect one of four of these exclusive San Diego Comic-Con Pops as your trophy (no spine ripping required).

 

But this time, you’re going to have to use your highly honed thermal-vision to win this coveted curly-topped version of The Predator to your collection.

 

 

 

Between now and Tuesday 12/11, we’re hiding three pieces of a secret key phrase inside of otherwise normal posts on this very blog. (Orange you glad you’re a regular reader?)

 

All you have to do is find the pieces, put them together, and come back on 12/11 to enter the completed phrase for your chance to win. Only the most dedicated trackers will be in it to win it, but that just increases your odds of bagging the prize.

 

Stay tuned for the first key piece, and happy hunting!

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS, THE PREDATOR

FEAR ITSELF

 

Whether you’re an adult thrill-seeker looking for alien adventure or just want some spooky fun for family movie night, this week’s new releases have you covered.

 

 

Mix magic, mayhem, and creepy fun, and you’ll end up with the perfect potion for a scary good time.

 

The House With a Clock in Its Walls, veteran horror director Eli Roth’s first foray into family fun, is a wild ride full of spells, spectres, and secrets that movie fans young and old can enjoy. Can a wily warlock (Jack Black) and his newly magical nephew uncover the meaning behind their house’s ticking heart? Finding out is guaranteed fun.

 

 

The hunt is never truly over. If you thought The Predator was scary before, wait until you see it souped-up, super-powered, and genetically enhanced for 2018. It’s going to take the world’s greatest scientists, military assassins, and a child prodigy or two to take it down, and even that may not be enough.

 

Bummed you weren’t picked for our Predator Conan Funko Pop! Giveaway? Real hunters never say die, so come back tomorrow for another dangerous game…

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Navigating social media as a busy middle-aged dad is a tall order under normal circumstances, but when your daughter’s life hangs in the balance there’s no alternative but to log on. Searching is going to be easier said than done.

 

 

Is The Little Stranger a trick of the mind, a series of unfortunate coincidences, or something far more sinister? For the family whose house it inhabits, discovering the truth too late could be deadly.

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT, THE NUN, AND MORE

THRILLS AND CHILLS

 

Which is scarier: rogue an international network of terrorists with nuclear capabilities or one really, really creepy ghost? Whatever your choice (why not both), this week is going to be anything but a snooze-fest.

 

 

How do you get more impossible than the betrayals, blacklisting, and desertion of past Mission: Impossible films? Well, you fail. And when Ethan Hunt and his team of expert field agents fail, they fail big. Facing the fallout of a botched mission that could leave the entire world at risk, Hunt and company will need every ounce of impossibleness they can muster to take on new foes, old grudges, and one hell of a mission in Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

 

 

But don’t take my word for it. The Vudu HQ team is here with everything you need to know to get hyped up for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, or at least as much of it as can fit in our latest round of Five Word Movie Reviews.

 

 

From the people who brought you The Conjuring films, here comes the ghastly ghoul that horror fans have been waiting years to finally face. Scarier than Meryl Streep in Doubt, more powerful than The Flying Nun, The Nun is an ancient evil with souls on the brain. You caught terrifying glimpses of it in The Conjuring 2, but your mortal eyes haven’t witnessed anything yet.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Money may not buy happiness, but when you’re dating Singapore’s most eligible (and wealthy) bachelor, it’s a tough thing not to have. Overbearing parents, untrustworthy family friends, and the whole extended family full of Crazy Rich Asians are ready to put Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) through the ringer.

 

 

Everyone knows man’s best friend can bring us shoes, newspapers, and the occasional dead squirrel, but can dogs also fetch us love? A group of LA dog owners is going to find out the ruff way as they speak, shake, and heel their way through the Dog Days.

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: THE EQUALIZER 2, SEARCHING, AND MORE

MISSING PIECES

 

The game is afoot this week, with mysteries involving murder, mayhem, and missing persons. Time to put on your thinking cap and get a clue.

 

 

When you fight for the little people, you’re never off the clock. That’s what retired spy Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) has come to learn in his time as a freelance do-gooder, and it’s never been more true than after the mysterious death of one of his few remaining friends.

 

With skin in the game and nothing to lose, he’ll find that confronting the past may prove to be the only way forward in The Equalizer 2.

 

 

Everyone has something they’d rather keep hidden, but in 2018 those things are often hidden in plain sight.

 

At least, that’s the hope of David Kim (John Cho) as he desperately tries to retrace his missing daughter’s steps from her social media presence. Digital footprints may not be visible, but they can reveal a lot with a little Searching.

 

 

We’ve all heard a bump in the night only to convince ourselves it’s only a trick of the imagination, but when people start dropping like flies even the most skeptical mind may reconsider.

 

Is The Little Stranger a hostile supernatural presence, or the sum effect of one family’s bottled up negative feelings? Watch and discover for yourself.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Jurassic World, eat your heart out. The Meg, 75 feet of shark-flavored nightmare fuel, is the true king of the prehistoric deep, and its back and taking no prisoners. When it comes to Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham), though it may have bitten off more than it can chew.

 

 

There are plenty of stories exploring the bond between a boy and his dog, but what about the very first one? In Alpha, one young hunter and one injured wolf must fight to survive the elements, overcome their differences, and ignite a partnership for the ages.

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: CRAZY RICH ASIANS, CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, AND MORE

THE PLACES YOU’LL GO

 

Singapore. Oakland. The Hundred Acre Wood. This week’s new releases are all about places, as well as the people, feelings, and stuffed bears that come and go.

 

 

With Hollywood finally starting to recognize the importance of representation, movie theaters are showcasing a wider variety of stories than ever before.

 

But not every story is received as warmly or widely as Crazy Rich Asians, the international love story that has made critics and audiences alike stand up and cheer. Come for the breathtaking visuals, stay for the parade of star-quality performances.

 

 

Winnie the Pooh’s humble home is never far for those in touch with their inner child.

 

Pooh, Tigger, and company’s latest grand adventure will take them to uncharted territory (modern day London) in a quest to save their old friend Christopher Robin from the scariest monster of all: adulthood.

 

 

Progress that leaves people behind is no progress at all. Blindspotting tells the story of two friends in a neighborhood that is both rapidly changing and frustratingly staying the same.

 

The film speaks for the people left in the margins by discrimination, apathy, and hate, and it speaks loudly.

In a world with no superheroes allowed, who do you call when a giant mechanized drill is hurtling through the city?
