Coming to Video-On-Demand in July 2017

The Fate of the Furious, the seventh film in the seemingly exhaustible Fast and Furious franchise, pits Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron against Dwayne Johnson and the rest of his crew. It leads off the new films coming to cable and streaming video-on-demand in July along with the jungle fever prequel Kong: Skull Island with Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson hunting the most dangerous game and the live-action remake of the Japanese anime landmark Ghost in the Shell with Scarlett Johansson.

Also coming in July are the World War II drama The Zookeeper’s Wife with Jessica Chastain, the romantic obsession psycho-thriller Unforgettable with Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson, the animated comedies Smurfs: The Lost Village and The Boss Baby (with the voice of Alec Baldwin), and the family adventure Swallows & Amazons based on the classic children’s novel.

Among the acclaimed features arriving from the arthouse and independent circuit are Kelly Reichardt’s award-winning Certain Women with Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, and Laura Dern, Terence Davies’s poetic A Quiet Passion with Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson, and Ben Wheatley’s bloody black comedy / action thriller Free Fire with Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, and others trying to kill each other.

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.
