Redbox, the DVD-rental kiosk that offers cheap movies to go, is set to open in thousands of CVS drugstores in New York and across the country. Similar to Blockbuster Express's movie-spewing machines inside some Duane Reade locations, Redbox allows you to bring home a film for around the same price as the service fee on a $12 Manhattan movie ticket. Best of all? This machine won't judge you for renting Sex and the City 2 when it rolls around. We know you secretly need to find out what Aiden is doing at that Abu Dhabi market.
