A new month means new movies to watch, and September is completely jam-packed with thrills and chills. But there’s also room for a little dramatic tenderness and silly comedies. Let’s consider our options, shall we?
Fandango At Home
What premium titles are available to watch on Vudu this week?
The idea of a courageous man versus a ferocious lion in Beast is more than enough to draw our interest. It’s not just any man, though – it’s Idris Elba, and he’s determined to protect his two beloved daughters, no matter what. It makes for a breathlessly entertaining thriller in the vast wilds of Africa.
Nope unfolds on a lovely California horse ranch, which is the perfect setting for director Jordan Peele to reveal one surprising development after another in his newest thriller. Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer lead the proceedings as siblings who must cope with an unimaginable threat that threatens their existence.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in DC League of Super-Pets as Superman’s best friend and Batman’s dog, respectively. The animated adventure is sure to please animal lovers, superhero addicts and movie fans of all ages.
How do you celebrate the holidays? Easter Sunday revolves around the life experiences and comedy of Jo Koy, whose raucous family is captured in a joyful comedy about celebrating a holiday with loved ones.
Diane Keaton stars in Mack & Rita as a woman who finds herself magically transported into a body she doesn’t recognize. It makes for a silly comedy, yet also allows for a thoughtful consideration of what really matters in life.
Diving deep into the consciousness of a disturbed woman, Orphan: First Kill examines Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman), who escapes from a psychiatric facility and lands in the warm embrace of an unsuspecting family. Mother (Julia Stiles) knows best, however, and she will do everything within her power to protect her family from Esther’s dangerous impulses.
New This Week
What’s freshly available to watch on Vudu this week?
In the sticky swamplands of the South, a mystery emerges. Daisy Edgar-Jones stars in Where the Crawdads Sing as Kya, a young woman who was raised alone in the marshes and now finds herself accused of a heinous crime by suspicious local residents. She must prove her own innocence, but how?
A different sort of mystery lies at the heart of Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, namely, how can a shell talk? It’s a delightful comedy that also touches the heart – multiple times!
Mighty or not, superheroes sometimes need a little help from their friends, as in Thor: Love & Thunder. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) needs help from Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) in order to take on Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). With a name like that, we know he’s up to no good.
Deal of the Week
Now available to buy or rent, The Black Phone depicts every parent’s worst nightmare from the point of view of young Finney (Mason Thames). He’s heard that a dangerous man in a mask has been kidnapping and killing children, but that in no way prepares him when he becomes the latest victim. Locked in a basement by The Grabber (Ethan Hawke) and desperate to escape, he starts receiving mysterious phone calls from fellow victims on a disconnected telephone. What follows is even more shocking.
