Summer blockbusters arriving on Movies On Demand

The leaves are starting to turn, there’s a chill in the air, and this summer’s blockbusters are starting to arrive on BendBroadband’s Video On Demand. Check out what you can watch in September without ever leaving your couch:

Men in Black: International
Starts September 3
PG-13
Sony Pictures

You may have seen these two stars together in the Thor movies, and now they star in this fresh take on the popular MIB franchise. Tessa Thompson stars as M, and Chris Hemsworth as H—plus Liam Neeson as agent High T. All three are trying to identify a mole in the Men in Black organization. If you’ve seen the others, you know what to expect—and you’ll likely enjoy the ride.


Aladdin
Starts September 10
PG
Disney

True story: this live-action adaptation of the original Disney animated classic gets a whopping 94% audience score from Rotten Tomatoes. We don’t need to tell you the plot, because you know it already—but the remake is described as having style and pizazz grab the family and sing along while you watch.


John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum
Starts September 10
R
Lionsgate

The John Wick franchise is unusual in that it gets more acclaimed by both critics and audiences with every movie. If you’re not familiar: John (Keanu Reeves) is former assassin, who has been trying to leave his past behind—trying, being the key word. It sounds strange to say you cheer for an assassin, but you just can’t help yourself, particularly in this well-done Chapter 3.


X-Men: Dark Phoenix
Starts September 17
PG-13
20th Century Fox

This latest X-Men movie is the dramatic conclusion of Jean Grey’s story. While on a space rescue mission, Jean is hit with a force that amplifies her power. In addition to making her stronger, it also makes her more unstable and she begins to spiral out of control. With the lives of all of the X-Men at risk, if you’re a fan of this universe, you’ll want to see this finale.


Yesterday
Starts September 24
PG-13
Universal Studios

Imagine if, overnight, everyone in the world suddenly didn’t know the Beatles or their music…except for one man. That’s the premise for this charming underdog movie. The audience gets to watch as a nice guy who failed with his own music is rocketed to stardom thanks to John, Paul, George, and Ringo’s tunes. It’s a love story, not quite a musical, and a whole lot of fun.
