Disney’s hit live action remake of The Jungle Book with Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, and Scarlett Johansson as the voices of the jungle animals, the seventies private eye flashback The Nice Guys with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, and the animated The Angry Birds Movie are among the movies arriving from theaters to video-on-demand in the month of August.
Also coming in August is the Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship with Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny, the offbeat romantic fantasy The Lobster with Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, Tom Hanks in A Hologram For The King from the Dave Eggers novel, and the documentaries De Palma and Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny.
Video-on-Demand, what used to be known pay-per-view, is essentially a streaming rental service and has become one of the most popular home viewing choices for new movies. It is available through digital cable and satellite systems and web-based VOD services like iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Flixster, and Google Play.
