We’re really excited for our New Release recap this week. We have a mixture of action-adventure, fantasy and supernatural horror – there’s something for everyone! Now available on the Video Unlimited service are The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and our 99 cent rental of the week, Man of Steel. See the full list below!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: We’ve all seen the Lord of the Rings series, like, a million times, so we’re amped for the second chapter of his Hobbit trilogy. More dwarf action – including an amazing choreographed barrel escape down a raging river – and the addition of Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug, the treasure-hoarding dragon make this one you can’t miss.
Our favorite hobbit, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), finds himself on an epic journey to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Tolkien’s timeless story comes to life like never before in this dramatic prequel.
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones: Get ready to be really, really scared. Hailed as “the best in the series,” by Steve Barton, DREAD CENTRAL, this horrifying spin-off/sequel to the original Paranormal Activity will send chills down your spine.
The malevolent demon that we’ve all come to love has chosen seventeen-year-old Jesse’s (Andrew Jacobs) soul for possession. You’ll want to keep the light on…
Delivery Man: In this comedy from DreamWorks Pictures comes the story of the affable underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn), who discovers that his mundane, middle-aged life is actually not as ordinary as it seems…
As it turns out, David is actually a present-day Genghis Khan: he’s fathered 533 children from sperm donations that he made twenty years ago! David embarks on a hilarious journey to discover his true self and what it means to be a father…of 533 children.
Grudge Match (Plus Bonus Features): Our favorite tough guys, Oscar® winner Robert De Niro and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone, are back in this 1980s boxing film. The two tough guys take on the roles of Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight.
The Kid and Razor were competitive rivals up until the eve of their third match in 1983, when Razor unexpectedly announces his retirement. Thirty years later, the boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. challenges them to dust off their boxing gloves and re-enter the ring one last time.
Man of Steel: Now, what you’ve been waiting for all week – our 99 cent rental! From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman. Brush up on your Superman knowledge in anticipation of the Man of Steel 2 release!
The young Superman learns that he has unnatural powers not normal for this Earth. As he discovers what he’s put on this planet to do, the hero within him must emerge to save the mankind from destruction.
