NEW THIS WEEK: BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE AND MORE

BAD MEETS WORSE

 

Hellish hotels, scary symbiotes, and spooky sorcerers. Who says December can’t be devious?

 

 

A priest, a singer, a salesman, and a drifter all walk into a hotel… and none of them is exactly who they say they are. It’s no joke; it’s Bad Times at the El Royale, the twisty and twisted noir thriller from the maker of The Cabin in the Woods.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

One part alien invader, one part Tom Hardy as a hard-boiled reporter. Shake well and stand back as Venom, two anti-heroes in one, goes on a crime-fighting, crime-committing, chaos-creating spree that Spider-Man will be glad he doesn’t have to clean up.

 

 

Speaking of chaos, there’s going to be a whole lot of it if Lewis Barnavelt and his wacky warlock uncle can’t figure out what’s going on with The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

 

Director Eli Roth and composer Nathan Barr were especially inspired to bring the classic children’s tale to life, which they’ll tell you more about in the video above.

 

 

This mommy blogger’s got more than mashed peas and crepe paper crafts on the brain.

 

There’s a missing person case to solve, and as the clues add up and the details unravel, solving it may be more than just A Simple Favor.

WHAT IS 4K UHD?

4K, HD, Sales

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE

 

 

You’ve probably been hearing a lot of buzz about 4K UHD lately, but may be a little unclear on what exactly it is and what makes it so great. With our 48-hour Black Friday 4K UHD Sale happening now, we figured it;s the perfect time for a little 4K UHD crash course.

 

GET THE PICTURE

 

4K, or 4K Ultra HD, is a video resolution technology that provides a picture with four times as many pixels as 1080p HDX resolution. More pixels means more clarity, more detail, and a more lifelike viewing experience than ever before. Vudu’s 4K UHD movies have all of that, plus next level color and sound thanks to HDR support and Dolby Atmos compatibility.

 

IN LIVING COLOR

 

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, comes in two types: Dolby Vision and HDR10. Both offer cutting edge picture brightness, contrast, and color for your movies, and both are supported by Vudu 4K UHD, so you can enjoy eye-popping color with whichever version is compatible with your device.

 

BRING THE NOISE

 

Dolby Atmos is the future of multidimensional sound, with crisp, booming audio that you can feel filling the room. If you have a Dolby Atmos-enabled sound system, our 4K UHD movies will make sure you’re getting the absolute most out of your equipment.

 

 

Sounds pretty good, right? If you’re ready to experience a whole new world of visual and audio quality, head over to our 48-hour Black Friday 4K UHD Sale for amazing deals on new releases like Blade Runner 2049, Ready Player One, and Wonder Woman.
