New on TDS TV on Demand
Dory is back—and she’s as cute and adorable as ever. This time around she goes on her search for her parents. The outstanding voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Diane Keaton, Eugen Levy, Idres Elba and many others. Available November 15.
Smart, moving adaptation of Phillip Roth’s novel of the same name. Logan Lerman plays an idealistic working class Jewish student from New Jersey who discovers life’s many contradictions, challenges and heartaches when he falls for a young woman while attending a small conservative college in Ohio in the 1950s. Available November 8.
Wickedly funny, juvenile, crude and subversive, “Sausage Party” takes a critical look at the many taboos of society—sex, religion, racism—and turns things on its head. The film – about a hot dog that realizes that his lot in life is to be consumed and tossed away—is not for everyone due to its crudeness. But creator Seth Rogan (and the outstanding voice cast) have put together a very warped and very unique film. Be very, very aware that this film is NOT for children. Available November 8.
“War Dogs” is based on the true story of two young men who are awarded a $300 million contract to arm American allies in Afghanistan. Jonah Hill and Miles Teller play the friends who get in WAY over their head in this absurd (and insightful) comedy. Available November 15.
