Coming to Video On Demand in May 2018

Chadwick Boseman is the African superhero in the Marvel Comics hit movie

Black Panther, the superhero movie that surpassed all expectations to become one of the top ten highest grossing films ever made, is coming home in May on cable and video on demand, as well as on DVD and Blu-ray. It’s the most anticipated film in a month that includes the cold war spy thriller Red Sparrow with Jennifer Lawrence, crime comedy Game Night with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, and horror film Winchester with Helen Mirren

Also coming in May are the family friendly animated comedies Early Man and Peter Rabbit, acclaimed indie satire The Party with Kristin Scott Thomas and Patricia Clarkson, brainy science fiction thriller Annihilation with Natalie Portman, and the Brazilian drama A Fantastic Woman, which won the Academy Award for best foreign language feature.

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 most digital cable and satellite systems. Most titles are also available through web-based VOD services like iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Fandango, and Google Play.
