Titles that should have people excited include Crazy Rich AsiansThe Incredibles 2, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Ant-Man and the Wasp, The Avengers: Infinity War, and Deadpool 2.

Besides renting movies for super low prices, Google has a number of other specials running during this shopper’s holiday — which it affectionately refers to as “Cyber Week”. Viewers can also get discounts on TV shows like American Horror Story and HBO’s Game of Thrones, and various movies.
