There’s lots to be excited about this month, with some of the biggest movies of the year to-date (including THE biggest) arriving at Redbox. Here are FOUR standouts coming to the Box and On Demand in August!

Avengers: Endgame

In this climactic final entry that succeeds in both bringing together and providing closure for the 21 Marvel movies that came before it, all of your favorite superheroes in the MCU join forces to attempt to take down Thanos, who we last saw wiping half the life on the planet out of existence.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

If you played Pokémon as a kid, play Pokémon Go now or have kids that are into Pokémon, this is the movie for you. You’ll be immersed in Ryme City, a busy metropolis where Pokémon creatures and humans live (and work) side by side, which is how cute little Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) came to be Police Detective Harry Goodman’s partner. But when Harry goes missing and his son, former Pokémon trainer, Tim (Justice Smith) suspects foul play, Tim is drawn into the mystery … and a world he thought he’d left behind.

Rocketman

Whether you’re an Elton John fan or not, you’ll find this story of his earlier years flat-out amazing — and, I can’t lie, pretty heart-wrenching. Taron Egerton is absolutely fantastic as the globally famous singer, as is Bryce Dallas Howard (portraying John’s fairly heartless mother), Jamie Bell (playing John’s longtime collaborator and friend Bernie Taupin) and Richard Madden (as the slimy music manager John Reid).

The Secret Life of Pets 2

In this animated sequel, Katie’s (Ellie Kemper) doggies Max (Patton Oswalt) and Duke (Eric Stonestreet) experience some big life changes with Katie not only getting married, but having her first child, Liam … and then deciding to take the whole broad on a road trip to the countryside, where they meet Rooster (Harrison Ford), a Welsh sheepdog. And rest assured that Snowball (Kevin Hart) is back as well, this time meeting a Shih Tzu named Daisy (Tiffany Haddish) who gets the renegade rabbit involved in a wild adventure.

And now here are all the movies coming to the Box and Redbox On Demand next month:
