6 Movies You Should Watch on Your New iPhone 6


In case you haven’t heard (maybe the internet cut out on your smartphone?), the big news of the day is that Apple is releasing the latest iteration of the iPhone. The iPhone line is good for a lot of things, from listening to music to checking your email to occasionally calling people, but we prefer our smartphones to earn their keep by helping us keep up with the box office. So whip out your brand-spanking new (and hopefully charged) iPhone 6, download these films from iTunes, and get ready for ten whole square inches of movie magic.

Obviously, action are more suited for the big screen than the iScreen, but you’ve already missed your chance for that, so really, what’s the difference between your little iPhone screen and your ? And besides, the iPhone 6’s screen is a whole half an inch bigger! That totally makes up for the lack of Dolby Digital Surround Sound and that sweet curved IMAX screen.

And now, more Chris Evans — this time with beard! “Snowpiercer” is the ideal movie for your commute (assuming you don’t commute in a car): a post-apocalyptic thriller set on a perpetual motion train, starring Evans, Ed Harris, and Tilda Swinton. After an ice age takes over, the last people left alive on the planet seek refuge on class-segregated train. So take a look around you and imagine having to spend the rest of your life on that train or that plane with those people. Do you want to get off on the next stop?

Are you a young person? Did you watch “High School Musical?” If so, here’s a shirtless Zac Efron. A funny shirtless Zac Efron! The big selling point for “Neighbors” is that it’s a comedy, so you can watch on your phone without feeling you’re completely missing out on the cinematic experience. Also, Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, if Zefron doesn’t do it for you.

If the box office numbers are any indication, you’ve already seen this movie. You’ve probably already it a couple of times, so what’s another $1.99 for the opportunity to watch and cry in the comfort and privacy of your bed? Unless you want to be that crazy person crying on the bus. Don’t be that crazy person crying on bus.

Apple updated its , and “Edge of Tomorrow” updated its title. It’s a win-win for everyone, because “Live, Die, Repeat” is in fact a better title for this Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt sci-fi flick. (Unless you were really attached to the 7; then we guess it’s a win-lose.) “Edge” had the misfortune of coming out the same week as “The Fault in Our Stars” and didn’t get the kind of attention it really deserved. So now’s your chance to see what the fuss should have been about.

This might be the one movie on this list that you seriously don’t need to watch in theaters, or even on your . Hell, you don’t even need to watch it on an iPad. This Tom Hardy thriller set entirely in a car is the perfect movie for a iPhone — it’s basically a radio play.
