Friday of mourning in Spain, but Friday at last, the most anticipated day of the week, since for those who have study or have a standard-time job, it represents goodbye to 5 days of work, and hello to 2 days holiday. But if on Saturday night you fancy a sofa and a movie, we are going to review the best Netflix premiere movies and series, Amazon, HBO Y Disney+ to watch this weekend.
In Movistar +
Movistar +, as always, is the most prominent VOD platform in terms of recent releases. And for this weekend we have Hidden Passenger, in which Chloë Grace Moretz (‘The (un) education of Cameron Post’, ‘Carrie’, ‘Kick-Ass’ saga) plays a World War II pilot fighting a mysterious aerial threat in this film that walks between action films, fantasy and horror. ‘Hidden passenger (Shadow in the Cloud)’ is a daring and original proposal with an adventurous comic spirit and a message about female empowerment.
Also the series Everything will go well, in which an independent twenty-something is left in charge of his two American stepsisters after the death of his father, improvised legal guardian of the adolescents: Matilda (Kayla Cromer), a girl on the autism spectrum preparing for college, and Genevieve (Maeve Press), a witty and scathing girl who is reluctant to accept what puberty has in store for her.
Plus the Assassins documentary: In 2017, Kim Jong-nam, brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is assassinated in broad daylight at Malaysia’s bustling airport. The murder was recorded in its entirety by security cameras and the images show two girls approaching Kim Jong-nam from behind and covering his eyes with a handkerchief impregnated with XV, the deadliest nerve gas.
On HBO Spain
HBO brings us tomorrow Saturday the second season of the urban drama Betty, with its five protagonists taking a firm step towards adulthood as women and addressing all the challenges that this entails. Set in the final chapter of 2020, the season portrays the late summer and early fall months in New York City marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, where face masks and outdoor activities are the norm.

And the documentaries Latin Flow, which shows the enormous capacity for empowerment that urban music has in this reality a group of girls from Latin America.

At Disney, after the premiere of Loki, we have

The Twilight, season 1, a daddy thriller in which the murder of a woman unleashes an old and present wave of crimes based on corruption and shady deals.
And the enjoyable and shameless French actioners from Transporter 1 and 2, saga in which Jason Statham began to cultivate his reputation as a tough and grim ‘leading man’.
