It’s definitely a bigger selection from last week, but there are also a few good films coming to Redbox this week as well, which gives you the opportunity to watch a few good films this weekend with the family. The Good Dinosaur is going straight to Redbox the day it comes out, with Extraction, Rock the Kasbah, and Diablo sharing the day of release for the modern day Blockbuster.

The story follows young Arlo who was born millions of years after the asteroid passed Earth. His parents are farmers and he’s the runt of the family. When he finds himself lost after a rain storm, Arlo must find his way home with the help of a caveboy named Spot and the help of other dinosaurs along the way. It’s a beautifully thought out tale of friendship and family. Check out the trailer below:
