The summer hits continue to roll out on VOD in October, with Spider-Man: Homecoming, the third big screen reboot of the wall-crawling hero and the first to invite him into the Marvel Comics Universe of heroes, and War for the Planet of the Apes, the acclaimed third film in the series.
They topline a list that includes the high-energy Baby Driver, a crime thriller with fast getaways and a musical beat, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales with Johnny Depp back as Captain Jack Sparrow, and the comedy Girls Trip with Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Also arriving in October are Sofia Coppola’s award-winning remake of The Beguiled with Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst, the independent drama A Ghost Story with Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara, the Canadian drama Maudie with Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, and the documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power with Al Gore.
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.
