SCIENCE BITES BACK IN JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

YOU WON’T LIKE THEM WHEN THEY’RE HUNGRY

 

 

What could have more bite than Shark Week, induce more heart palpitations than Lobster Fest, and grab the attention of more kids than the Puppy Bowl? Dinosaurs of course! And it’s time we started counting down to next week’s release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in up to 4K UHD on Vudu. Luckily, you don’t need to wait for the next extinction-level event to get the movie. You can pre-order it now and get a $3 movie credit to spend as you please after release day. Once you’re finished enjoying all the spine-tingling, human-munching thrills of course.

 

Bro, do you even science?

 

 

In the newest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, the “fallen kingdom” isn’t just the once beautiful Isla Nublar. As lava ravages the cloned-dinosaurs’ island home, the kingdom of humanity must reckon with the consequences of creating the genetically-engineered beasts. As one returning character warns (in a scene-stealing cameo), it may already be too late to close the Pandora’s Box of Velociraptors, Mosasauruses, and hybrid horrors leftover from Jurassic World.

 

 

Jurassic Park isn’t the first franchise to deal with experiments gone apocalyptically wrong. Just as John Hammond’s scientists ignored the warning signs in their pursuit of a new race of revived dinosaurs, the negligence of biotech firm Gen-Sys ignites a full-scale interspecies war in the Planet of the Apes series. The pros and cons of ape world vs. dinosaur world (take your stinking claws off me you damn dirty dinos!) are up for debate, but the message is clear: meddling in the gene pool can have unintended results.

 

 

But why should monkeys and lizards have all the fun? In the Resident Evil films, it’s humans that are subjected to the unregulated experiments of a shady genetic research corporation, and the resultant zombie army causes enough trouble for six films worth of gory genetically modified chaos.

 

 

And why have hundreds of medium-sized mistakes when you can have a handful of very, very big ones? The Godzilla franchise is home to countless skyscraper-sized monsters (or Kaiju) including moths, aliens, and-of course-dinosaurs. Not all are the direct result of human tampering (unless you count disturbing their centuries-long nap in the middle of the ocean), but when they’re not created by our nuclear warfare, genetic experimentation, or corporate greed they tend to be bailing us out from those same problems. The humanity-Kaiju relationship status is “It’s Complicated.”

 

 

And just because a scientific disaster isn’t Indominus Rex-sized doesn’t mean it’s not a problem. Just ask the Szalinski family, who are consistently being shrunk, blown up, and otherwise inconvenience by dad Wayne’s ill-advised inventions in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movies. It’s all family fun until somebody ends up in the vacuum cleaner.

 

MORE RAPTORS, MORE PROBLEMS

 

 

So, what have we learned? Probably nothing. But for now, just leave the super-science to the “professionals,” and pre-order Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to get your $3 movie credit before the offer (or the world) ends.

 

 

Last chance for pre-order and $3 movie credit back

Our new favorite guy in a red suit is both NAUGHTY AND NICE

 

 

You’d better watch out. You’d better not cry. And frankly, you better assess your tolerance level for violence, sarcasm, and unicorns – because Deadpool 2 (the “sequel to the first movie”) is coming to town, tomorrow! And this time our new favorite red-suited rascal (sorry Santa) is bringing some gifts of his own.

 

 

If you pre-order Deadpool 2 or the Deadpool 2-Movie Collection (Double the fun! Double the movies! Double the entendre!) before midnight tonight, you’ll receive a $3 Vudu credit to use once the movie drops. But today is the last day, so get that baby hand moving.

 

But wait! There’s more! You’ll also be entered to win one of just 1,000 Vudu-exclusive DP2 posters! That’s right: when you’re done watching all the explosions, skydives, and firefights (literal and not) of Deadpool 2 in up to eye-exploding 4K UHD visual quality, you can turn to your wall and enjoy the same Deadpool-riffic visuals in limited edition poster. We’d show you what it looks like, but then we’d have to sic X-Force on you. Oh, wait. Well, ok, you can see it here.

 

 

But still wait! There’s still more! With your purchase of Deadpool 2 in HDX quality or higher, you also receive the previously unseen, practically unsafe, possibly unconstitutional Super Duper Cut with a full 15 minutes of too-Deadpool-for-theaters extra footage. It’s a limb-riping good time, but you’ll probably want to wash your ears and eyes out with soap after watching it – heck maybe just go full-body sanitization.

 

 

And if all that wasn’t enough, we’re hosting the Deadpool 2 #VUDUVIEWINGPARTY to end all Deadpool 2 #VUDUVIEWINGPARTIES. (Going out on top, since there’s only going to be one. Maximum effort.) Because no one should have to Deadpool alone (and because we have way too much awesome swag for us to keep for ourselves). 

 

FRIDAY. 7PM. PACIFIC TIME. Be there or you might as well be in the Icebox. We’ll be kicking back, enjoying the movie, and spreading good cheer with the funnest facts, nerdiest trivia, and dopest prizes this side of grandma’s bingo social. Get your pre-order on, follow @vudufans on the ol’ Twitter, and click here to RSVP while the RSVP-ing is good.

 

 

 

 

 

Fifteen Extra Minutes of Fun.

#ThatsWhatDPSaid

 

So the Deadpool 2 Super Duper $@%!#& Cut premiered at Comic-Con and we were invited. Like invited with seats within Colossus butt-grabbing distance of Ryan Reynolds invited. (He didn’t actually grab our butts, but TBH we would have been ok with it.)

 

Both Ryan Reynolds and director David Leitch were there to hype up the crowd and intro the movie (Ryan was excited, he even wore his white pants) and we’ve got the footage to prove it. It’s pretty hilarious, but also a little bit NSFW – so, consider yourself warned.

 

 

Get The Movie. And Maybe A Super-Duper Exclusive Poster.

 

Deadpool 2 does a superhero landing on 8/7 and you can get it in up to 4K UHD. And it includes the #SuperDuperCut (with purchase of at least HDX quality), but if you pre-order it now you’ll also qualify for $3 movie credit upon release. Learn more about our pre-order + $3 movie credit program here.

 

And on top of that, your purchase of either #Deadpool2 or the Deadpool 2-Movie Collection automatically enters you into a sweepstake for a Vudu exclusive Deadpool poster! Like limited edition, only we got them, and there’s only 1,000, exclusive.

 

So, don’t wait, because someone else is probably pre-ordering right now and getting an entry for the drawing. Purchase before 8/7 to be entered in the sweepstakes.

 

Super Duper and Super-Secret

 

Obviously, we’d love to give you the scoop on all the extras, but we’re no snitches – they get stitches and wind up in ditches. So we’re going to keep our heads and arms inside the bus – safety first! We can show you a strange trailer for it though. You might recognize some of the characters if you caught our Facebook Live of them at Comic-Con.

 

 

Oooook, that’s telling. So, we can tell you that the extra 15 minutes of naughtiness and hilarity are totally worth it – especially since you’ll get the Super Duper Cut with your purchase of Deadpool 2 (Theatrical) on Vudu anyway. It’s like getting Bea and Arthur at the same time.

 

You’ll also see more violence, both cringe-worthy and humorous, as well as more jokes about the studio (kudos to Fox for not being uptight about this) and other superhero franchises.

 

There’s also a bit more character building and family-is-an-F-word storyline, and more Deadpool humor, as well as some substantial heft, added to the post-credit scenes. And don’t worry, the rumors you’ve heard about the added to the post-credit scenes are true.

 

Pre-order Deadpool 2 or the Deadpool 2-Movie Collection before it drops on 8/7 to get $3 movie credit! Don’t say we didn’t tell you!

 

 

Last Chance To Pre-order A Quiet Place

Plus, Join Our A Quiet Place Viewing Party

 

The Sound of Money In The Bank

 

Today is your last chance to pre-order A Quiet Place and get a $3 Vudu credit to spend when the movie is released.

 

You can even get it in up to 4K + HDR for the same price as HDX – which sounds pretty sweet to us. So feel free to future-proof your collection way beyond “Day 89.”

 

Get full terms here.

 

Pump Up the Silence

 

 

They say silence is golden. In A Quiet Place, it’s even more than that – it’s lifesaving. They also say silence can be deafening and there’s no better example of that than this movie. Because this horror movie is pretty much the opposite of your typical scream-filled horror movie – with about 40 minutes of silence before the first line is even uttered. Shut your mouth. But I’m talking about shhhhhh.

 

On Twitter, No One Can Hear You Scream

 

Which is what makes it perfect for our A Quiet Place #VuduViewingParty. Typing on Twitter is pretty much the closest thing to ASL we can get, so type in ALL CAPS all you want, we can’t hear you. (But don’t type in all caps, shouting on the internet is still silent.)

 

If you haven’t joined us for a #VuduViewingParty, you don’t know what you’re missing. Imagine if you could fit all of your friends, and your friends’ friends, in your living room so you can all geek out to a great movie – and win awesome prizes – yeah, that’s what it’s like. Welcome to the Vudu Viewing Party.

 

Joining the #VuduViewingParty is easy. First, you’re going to need to get A Quiet Place – hello, pre-order.

 

Second, you’ll need to RSVP for the party and follow us on “the Twitters” @vudufans. Then you’ll be ready to “silently” chat it up with us, and answer trivia questions for some great prizes. Just be sure to use the #VuduViewingParty so we can hear, er, see your tweets.

 

 

So join us this Friday at 7:00 p.m. (PT) for the quietest party you’ve ever been to.

 

 

We’re no Blockers, we’ll hook you up – with $3 movie credit

For a good time, pre-order this movie (In up to 4K + HDR)

Don't get blocked, watch Blockers today! Available now on Vudu in up to 4K + HDR

Pre-order Blockers before next Tuesday and get $3 movie credit to spend after Blockers is released. This might be the only time you look forward to getting blocked. Full terms here.

 

In Blockers, John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz do their best “Steel Curtain” impression to keep their kids from the goal line when they find out they’re up to some prom night shenanigans. Yeah, those shenanigans.

 

Sure, Blockers ups the ante on the raunchiness with some real-life, “ripped from today’s headlines” antics, but if you look past that, there are some heartwarming moments as well. Dawww, the feels.

 

So, while adulting is hard – especially real adulting, Blockers shows us it’s also filled with hilarity and rewarding moments that make it all worth it. At least that’s what we hear.
