Horsemen of the apocalypse
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride away when these “Horse Soldiers” appear. Based on the non-fiction book, Horse Soldiers, by Doug Stanton, 12 Strong follows the incredible men of ODA 595 as they arrive in Afghanistan just weeks after the attacks of 9/11.
Into the lion’s den
There are the lions and the lambs, but in Den of Thieves, it’s just lions and lions. This gritty crime drama pits a bold and dangerous professional robbery crew against an equally dangerous unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Department. Featuring Gerard Butler, Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours), O’Shea Jackson Jr (Straight Outta Compton), and 50 Cent.
Stuck in a maze (ment)
The Maze Runner series has trapped our attention for two films, now in the finale, Maze Runner: The Death Cure answers all the questions about Thomas, Teresa, the Gladers, and the mysterious WCKD organization.
And now through 5/10/18, when you buy Maze Runner: The Death Cure, you’ll get a free, Vudu-exclusive digital comic – Maze Runner – Origins, drawn by BOOM! Studios. This prequel story will be delivered by email within 24 hours of purchase.
Now available for rent
One movie you might not have heard of that’s also available for rent is Bomb City. This explosive drama/suspense movie pits suburban Texas teens against angst-filled, anti-everything punk rockers. The title of the movie is both a nod to the explosiveness of the film itself, as well as the nickname of the city in which the film takes place – Amarillo, TX, home to the last remaining nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly plant in the U.S.

Eyes on the boob tube
Seriously, are we not doing “phrasing” anymore? That’s right, everyone’s favorite super-spy, Sterling Archer, is back in Archer: Danger Island (someone call Kenny Loggins, that’s dangerously close to trademark infringement). Get season 9 and watch new episodes as soon as the day after air.
Also, check out The Expanse: Season 3. Unless you’ve been living under a Mars rock, you’ve probably heard about this sci-fi thriller that is totally a must-watch in our minds. It’s got conspiracies, an interstellar class war, a strange alien compound that threatens to destroy everything – and this season, all-out war.
