Google’s $0.99 movie rentals are back in ‘Ultimate Weekend’ deal

If you missed the ultra-cheap $0.99 movie rentals deal Google launched in February, good news: it’s ‘Ultimate Movie Weekend’ on the Google Play Movies & TV store. Under this new deal, Google is offering movie rentals at $0.99 each, including blockbuster titles and popular options from a number of major studios.

Ultimate Movie Weekend appears to be a digital movie rental deal spanning multiple platforms, with both Walmart’s Vudu and Apple’s iTunes also participating. Select movie rentals have been discounted to $0.99, with the discounted titles appearing identical on each platform.

The cheapest movies in this weekend promotion include Wonder Woman, The Equalizer, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Forrest Gump, Suicide Squad, American Sniper, Man of Steel, The LEGO Movie, The Conjuring 2, and more. The full list of discounted movie rentals can be found here.

The Ultimate Movie Weekend isn’t limited to just $0.99 titles, however. Customers looking for a movie released at a more recent date have other options, such as Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse for $2.99 instead of $5.99. That same discount is also available for Aquaman, Isn’t It Romantic, Cold Pursuit, What Men Want, The Mule, A Star is Born, and more.

Customers will also find some mid-tier discounts, with movies that originally cost $3.99 being discounted to $1.99. Ultimately, the deal includes a large selection of new and mostly new movies at discounted rate, though not all of them have been slashed down to the $0.99 cent level. The promotion will only be available this weekend.
