FREE MOVIES AND TV FOR FRIDAY

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

 

Got a house full of picky watchers? Friends can’t agree on a movie? We’ve got you covered with over 5,000 free movies and shows for every audience and occasion. With sci-fi epics, thrilling true stories, daring dramas, and family fun there’s options for every member of your crew.

 

NEW THIS WEEK

 

 

Way before millennials were being asked to unplug, one man in a sharp black ensemble was dodging bullets and taking names in an all-out war with the machines that controlled his reality. Ignorance may be bliss, but the truth can only be found by exiting The Matrix.

 

 

Move over, Swimfan. This wrestling superfan (and real-life billionaire) is taking dark obsession to the next level, and he’s got the facilities, connections, and funds to make his dreams a reality at any cost. The sports world will never forget the name Foxcatcher.

 

 

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Stuart Little may be well… little but he’s ready for some big adventure with his newfound human family. If he can evade the neighborhood cats and get home to safety, he’ll have a giant-sized story the whole family can enjoy.

 

 

Moonshine is thicker than water. Three bootlegging brothers living outside the law are going to need grit, luck, and each other if they’re going to outwit and outgun the hard-nosed new county lawman. It’s not easy being Lawless.

 

MOVING DOCUMENTARIES

 

These bittersweet slices of real-life will educate, engage, and charm from the very first frame.

 

 

Pelican Dreams may be exactly what it sounds like, but this story of a lost and injured California pelican’s long road home proves there’s more to these big birds than meets the eye.

 

 

Best Kept Secret is a film with no bells and whistles, except the ones found in the halls and yard of a Newark, NJ school. The students, who are working-class, non-white, and living with autism, are determined, along with their dedicated teacher, to prepare themselves for the life that waits outside the classroom.

 

 

Underneath the hit musical drama Once is the beating heart of a real-life story of love, friendship, and collaboration between the film’s two bandmate leads. Stark and stirring, The Swell Season is an essential companion piece for film and music lovers alike.

It’s official. Bingeable is a thing.

Well, it’s always been a thing (we knew that), but now it’s a real thing – at least according to the folks at Merriam-Webster. Yeah, the dictionary people.

 

 

Merriam-Webster has just made an update that adds 840 new words to the dictionary, and one of them, in particular, caught our eye.

 

M-W lists the definition of bingeable as: “having multiple episodes or parts that can be watched in rapid succession: suitable for binge-watching.” Sounds pretty good to us.

 

They also cite 2013 as the year the word was first used, so we’re not sure why it took them five years to realize it’s common enough to be worthy of gracing their pages (both virtual and print) – but we’re pretty excited about it anyway, because, well, movies & TV.

 

So, how did it finally become “a real word”? According to M-W, they look for three criteria: frequent use, widespread use, and meaningful use. Meaning it has to be used by a lot of people, in a lot of places, and be descriptive enough to be useful.

 

Other words that made this update include flight (at least a new definition that accounts for beer flights), Instagramming (millennials are killing the dictionary), lots of tech-related words (haptics, force quit, fintech), and hangry – as in hangry for some bingeable TV? Which leads us to…

 

Hangry for TV? Vudu satisfies – with a Fall TV sale.

 

 

If you do happen to be hangry for some bingeable TV, you’re in the right place. In addition to movies & TV being our fav (also made the update) thing, it’s also our thing.

 

We also just so happen to be having a Fall TV Sale where you can get:

 

  • The brand new The Purge TV series that just started yesterday, starting at $16.99 (SD)
    (new episodes available as soon as the day after they air)
  • Select seasons on sale for $19.99 and under
  • Current TV seasons on sale for $29.99 and under
  • Season/Series bundles on sale
  • And even Mix & Match 2 seasons (from a collection) for $19.99
  • Discover more TV with select FREE episodes (also a thing, all the time)

 

And because there’s always new TV shows to watch, you’ll want to check back every Tuesday this month as we add new shows and series to our New TV Series, Returning TV Series, Fall TV Sale, and Mix & Match TV sale collections.

 

So, binge better and get your TV a la carte. Let Vudu be your stop for your favorite TV shows whether they’ve been on the air, or are still in season – all for much less than cable. (Who watches 200 channels of shows anyways?) Watch the shows you want, and only the shows you want, commercial free, and by the episode, season, or series.

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, BEAST, AND MORE

PLUS RENTALS AND MOVIES STILL IN THEATERS

 

KEEP ABSOLUTELY STILL

 

 

Cover your scent, stay with the group, and if anything chases you, run! Jurassic World may be shut down, but the leftover dinosaurs aren’t going extinct (again) without a fight in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Part monster movie, part rescue caper, and all heart-stopping adventure, this ride is now open to all ages in up to 4K UHD.

 

 

Need more reptile action? How about some dino-sized crocodiles running rampant in an abandoned government black site? They’re mean, they’re green, and in a franchise of marine monsters they’re the deadliest batch yet. These aren’t your grandma’s crocs; this is Lake Placid: Legacy.

 

 

It’s not that weird to have a new boyfriend your family doesn’t exactly approve of. However, when the family are dangerously controlling and the boyfriend is a suspect in several unsolved murders, awkward holiday dinners are the least of your worries. Moll must choose sides wisely or find herself face-to-face with the true nature of the Beast.

 

 

Blackmail is the name of the game. When a movie star’s private detective pins a scandalous threat on the wrong man, it starts a domino effect that implicates and upends everyone involved. Bullets and accusations fly in The Big Take, a comedy of errors, identities, and extortion.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

If horror movies were spicy foods, Hereditary would be a big ol’ ghost pepper. Grab a friend, a flashlight, and a security blanket to watch the haunting family drama that made audiences cry, critics jump, and horror fans scream with joy.

 

 

Once upon a time a man in a cardigan sweater came along and, with the helps of some friendly puppets and a model trolley, taught kids of all ages lessons about caring, community, and compassion. That man was Mister Fred Rogers, and Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is the story of how he took over and changed television, one new neighbor at a time.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

Accountability means that when something goes wrong on your watch, you make it right. For one dedicated bank manager, that means hunting down the master thief who stole from his bank and murdered one of the employees. For his ex-cop neighbor (Bruce Willis), it means lending a hand, even if it’s not a clean one, in Reprisal.

 

 

MEET THE DINOS OF JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

TERRIBLE LIZARDS, GREAT FUN

 

 

At this point in the Jurassic Park franchise, it’s safe to say that filling a theme park with genetically engineered dinosaurs may not be in the public’s best interest. But at the same time, it’s hard to argue with watching dinosaurs fill the screen – especially when you see the looks of wonder and amazement on kids’ faces.

 

And because everyone loves dinos, we want to make sure your up on yours before you and your family watch add them to your collection. Because we all know the – “which dinosaur is that one?” question is as sure to pop up as sure as movie candy sticks to your teeth. So after you pre-order Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (in up to 4K + HDR) to prepare to share the fossilized fun with your family, be sure to gather the hatchlings and check out the Mesozoic monsters and awesome facts about the dinosaurs featured in the new movie.

 

Don’t forget, order before release and you’ll even receive a $3 movie credit to use after release day for even more movie & TV magic.

 

ISLAND BEFORE TIME

 

 

In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Isla Nublar is home to gentle giants and powerful predators of every shape and size, and since the events of Jurassic World they are now free to roam as they please. The Brachiosaurus, an herbivore seen slowly sauntering through the plains, is famous for its long snake-like neck and is believed to have weighed between 30 and 45 metric tons when full grown. That’s a lot of salad.

 

 

The Ankylosaurus, despite it’s fearsome looking armor and clubbed tail, is also a leaf-eater that used these powerful adaptations to defend itself and its family from less vegan-friendly foes. It needs these protections because it is fairly slow, but can be seen hustling along to escape from danger in the new film.

 

 

Gallimimus, seen stampeding in multiple Jurassic Park films, is quite the opposite: what it lacks in external protection it make up for with its unbelievable running speed of up to 60 mph. This omnivore can make a snack out of you before you can say its unusual name, and predators that pursue it are in for some extremely fast food.

 

 

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, who could forget the Mosasaurus? The enormous sea lizard makes a triumphant return from the first Jurassic World, and with an omnivorous diet that includes anything it can get its expanding jaw on, it’s the last thing you want to see on a day at the beach (as seen in the trailer).

 

 

The jet-black, nightmare fueling Indoraptor that stars in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom….. doesn’t exist! And thank goodness for that. With night-vision eyes, hyper-intelligence, and razor sharp claws, it’s one piece of movie magic that we shouldn’t bring to life anytime soon.

 

 

Didn’t see your favorite? Well this is only the tip of the Pteranodon when it comes to the weird and wild creatures that populate Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Pre-order now to see them all and dino-size your family’s movie night.

 

 

FREE MOVIES AND TV FOR FRIDAY

NO WORK, ALL PLAY

 

Labor Day weekend is here at last, and whether you’re chilling at the airport, passing time on the open road, or just lounging at home, we’ve got the hit movies and shows to help maximize your mini-vacation.

 

LAST CHANCE TO WATCH

 

Everything has an expiration date, but these movies are still certified fresh. Check them out before they’re gone.

 

 

You thought you had the roommate from hell? Try an unstable obsessive who isolates you from your loved ones so she can take over your identity. This Single White Female makes a sink full of dishes look pretty good.

 

 

A man with nothing to lose (plus an awesome scorpion jacket and a cool synth-pop soundtrack) is a powerful thing. When he finally finds something to care about, the mobsters and murderers are in big trouble. They don’t have his Drive.

 

 

Larry, Curly, and Moe have been poking eyes, slapping faces, and spreading laughs for as long as they can remember. But coming out of retirement? That’s going to take some soul-searching, even for The Three Stooges.

 

 

A shark whisperer who’s afraid of sharks can’t get much business, but the biggest job of her career is worth facing her fears for. Fame, fortune, and redemption await on the other side of the Dark Tide.

 

DRAMA QUEENS AND KINGS

 

You’ll gasp. You’ll cheer. You’ll stay up past your bedtime finishing these dramatic tales of crime, love, and cannibals.

 

 

Remember when French gangs were funneling literal tons of heroin into the US with nothing to stop them? No? That’s because police magistrates like the ones in The Connection shut down the whole operation. Watch a man on a mission lay everything on the line to drive the bad guys out of business.

 

 

Self-improvement is a long, hard road, but if it means getting his children back then Desmond Doyle (Pierce Brosnan) is ready to walk. He’ll have to change his ways, his thinking, and his entire country if he wants to see Evelyn again in this charming true story.

 

 

A world without meat might sound good to some, but to others it’s a real nightmare. In Delicatessen, a post-apocalyptic butcher shop turns wayward travelers into hearty snacks, and a lovestruck circus clown is the latest on the chopping block.

 

FREE COLLECTIONS

 

 

Need a laugh AND some thrills? Get some jokes on the run with our Criminally Good Comedies like Starsky & Hutch, Showtime, and Sugar & Spice.

 

 

Every parent knows their kids’ favorite shows, and we’ve got them free to watch whenever you need a hand. Plop the kids in front of some Top Kids’ TV like Spectacular Spider-Man Season 1, RoboRoach Season 1, Lego Nexo Knights Season 1, and Sonic X Season 1 for some peace and tranquility.

 

There’s a lot more where that came from. Check out our full free collection for all the options here.
