Then, in 2008 at the annual San Diego Comic-Con, Disney and first-time feature director Joseph Kosinski unveiled a visual effects concept test, revealing the updated world of Tron that would be the basis for the upcoming movie. Fanboys everywhere exploded in excitement, especially with the reveal that Jeff Bridges would return as Kevin Flynn. Now, the long awaited sequel is available on VUDU to own and to rent in SD, HD, and HDX! Tron: Legacy is available to own and rent in both 2D and 3D versions.

Hobo with a Shotgun
Starring: Rutger Hauer, Gregory Smith, Molly Dunsworth, Brian Downey, Nick Bateman
Director: Jason Eisener
In 2007, directors Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino unleashed one of their greatest collaborations to date – “Grindhouse”. An homage and throwback to the exploitation films of the 1970s, the film (containing two back-to-back movies “Planet Terror” and “Death Proof”) proved to be a critical and commercial failure, though it did create a fervent cult fan base. Most everyone agreed that the highlight of “Grindhouse” was not the back-to-back films, but rather the filler, fake trailers that aired between both movies. One of those trailers, Machete, became a feature length film on its own just last year, finally satisfying all the fanboys who had hoped to see the trailer become a full length film. Hot on the heels of Machete comes another trailer that has been expanded to a feature-length film, Hobo with a Shotgun. A complete experience and thrill-a-minute of a film, Hobo with a Shotgun is sure to please and tantalize. Hobo with a Shotgun is now available to rent on VUDU in SD, HD, and HDX one month before it premieres in theaters nationwide!
