NEW THIS WEEK: SMALLFOOT, COLETTE, AND MORE

BRAVE NEW WORLDS

 

This week’s premiering protagonists are off to unexpected adventures, where the only guarantees are uncertainty and the unknown.

 

 

It’s time for humanity to take a walk in someone else’s shoes (or lack thereof).

 

In the whimsical winter wonderland of Smallfoot, we fleshy pink humanoids are the mythical creature to a tribe of smart and secretive yetis, and our mysterious ways are about to be blown wide open.

 

With a who’s who of Hollywood voice talent, good-natured goofs galore, and one monster of a story, Smallfoot is the elusive family film that everyone can enjoy.

 

 

The world may know her work, but soon they will know her name.

 

Spurred into writing by her ambitious but controlling husband, Colette’s authorly odyssey will take her from the sunlit salon of her own country home to the celebrated salons of Paris and the hallowed halls of the world’s literary canon, if she can only get the credit for her beloved stories.

 

Bold, brash, and plucked from history’s headlines, Keira Knightley’s Colette is impossible to ignore.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

One mission. One team. Infinite impossibilities. Ethan Hunt and company are back to thwart terrorism, take names, and perform stunts that defy the laws of gravity and common sense.

 

You can take a home a piece of the action with epic, exclusive Mission: Impossible – Fallout prizes at this Friday’s #VUDUVIEWINGPARTY. Details here.

 

 

This nun’s got a lot worse in mind than just slapping your hand with a ruler.

 

From the people who brought you The Conjuring, The Nun is a terrifying trip to a Catholic school kid’s worst nightmares and beyond.

 

Ready for the next piece of our Conan O’Brien Predator Pop Giveaway key phrase? No need to hunt it down; here it is: “we can”. Just one more and you’ll be able to enter to win the exclusive Predator Conan Funko Pop! figures on 12/11. Better keep those eyes peeled (and thermal vision-ed).

MONDAY MOVIE NEWS

BIG NAMES

 

From Marvel, to Wes Anderson, to Steven King, this week’s news is full of Hollywood heavy hitters gearing up for big things to come.

MARVEL ANNOUNCES SHANG-CHI

 

 

MCU maniacs have a new crime-kicking hero to root for with the announcement of a movie adaptation of Shang-Chi, the master of kung fu.

 

In a move towards greater on and off-screen representation following the success of Black Panther, Marvel has contracted Asian American writer Dave Callaham to pen the script and is actively seeking a director of Asian descent.

 

NEW DETAILS ABOUT WES ANDERSON’S THE FRENCH DISPATCH

 

 

Some tantalizing tidbits have emerged regarding film auteur Wes Anderson‘s forthcoming feature, including the title (The French Dispatch) and setting (post-WWII Paris).

 

The film, which will center around French and American journalists, will feature an ensemble cast including frequent Anderson collaborators Bill Murray and Frances McDormand.

 

THE SHINING SEQUEL DOCTOR SLEEP HAS WRAPPED PRODUCTION

 

 

38 years after Stanley Kubrick brought Stephen King‘s The Shining to audiences worldwide, director Mike Flanagan is giving the big screen treatment to the book’s 2013 sequel Doctor Sleep.

 

Thriller fans won’t be waiting too long for the spine-chilling second installment, since the director took to Facebook to confirm the conclusion of production on the film.

A MUSICAL FEATURING THE MUSIC OF PRINCE IS IN DEVELOPMENT

 

 

In preparation for a big-screen musical featuring and inspired by the songs of pop icon Prince, Universal has acquired the right to many of the superstar singer’s biggest hits.

 

Plot details are still forthcoming, but writers and producers are currently in talks to develop an original story befitting Prince’s legacy.

 

 

FREE MOVIES AND TV FOR FRIDAY

LAST CHANCE TO WATCH

 

Here today, gone soon-ish. Watch these classic hits before they up and disappear for good.

 

 

Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice! You know how to summon him, now spend some time with cinema’s favorite ghostly pest expert. He’ll have those pesky humans heading for the hills, guaranteed.

 

 

Many stories, connected as one. Babel may seem like a patchwork pastiche of unrelated incidents, but as the characters learn more about themselves, their circumstances, and each other, threads emerge that create a picture greater than the sum of its parts.

 

 

Sometimes it’s hard to remember what you had for breakfast yesterday, but in I Know What You Did Last Summer there’s a deadly stranger who’s not letting bygones be bygones. Moving on from the past might be trickier than it sounds.

PRIDE IN THEIR WORK

 

These far-reaching films follow those with an extreme passion for what they do, and a powerful yearning to do it well.

 

 

In Ulee’s Gold, the title beekeeper’s pride and joy are his bees and his family, but cruel circumstance threatens harm to both. He’ll have to learn to ask for help, or risk losing everything in the process.

 

 

You’ve heard of Doctors Without Borders, but what about the dedicated doctors providing cost-free care right here at home? Remote Area Medical tells their stories, along with the stories of those they care for.

 

 

From coast to coast and nation to nation, fruit is a fundamental and flavorful part of life. No one knows that better than The Fruit Hunters, who are taking a tasty cinematic journey to the center of our love affair with the sweet natural treats.

 

For those of you bravely hunting down the key phrase in our Conan O’Brien Predator Pop Giveaway, here’s you first piece: “If it bleeds”. Keep your eyes open for the remaining pieces!

 

But wait! There’s more! Check out all the quality free TV and movies you’ve been missing out on in our full free collection here.
