It’s a heartwarming underdog tale for the holidays. No, redbox isn’t talking about finding a parking spot at the mall (though that’s hard too). Rent Invincible online today. It’s the true story of a regular old guy who takes a chance and tries out for the Philadelphia Eagles Â— starring Greg Kinnear as the Eagles head coach and Mark Wahlberg as local hero Vince Papale.
Talk about the kind of dancing you won’t find at the office holiday partyâ€¦check out the heat in Step Up. Tyler Gage (played by Channing Tatum) is a gifted dancer from the streets who can’t stay away from the law. Nora (Jenna Dewan) is a privileged ballerina. When they get together, sparks fly on and off the dance stage. You know what redbox is saying here.
Or check out a little movie that did huge things this year. Little Miss Sunshine offers a wry, hilarious and often touching look at the crazy world of children’s beauty pageants. Starring Steve Carell (from NBCâ€™s The Office), Greg Kinnear and the lovely Toni Collette, a wonderful ensemble cast takes you on one seriously dysfunctional road trip in a VW vanÂ—all the way to the pageant in California .
Rounding out the new releases is M. Night Shyamalan’s latest mindbender, Lady in the Water. Get this: an apartment superintendent (Paul Giamatti) rescues a woman in the pool. Turns out, she’s a character from a bedtime story trying to make it back to her alternate universe, while evil creatures try to keep her out. Andâ€¦redbox thinks that should just about clear that up. Bryce Dallas Howard also stars.
They’re all available online. But so are these, which you might have missed from last weekâ€¦
