The week ends, and the long-awaited weekend arrives. A weekend in which if you are lucky enough to have it free -there are those who work / study-, you can do whatever you want, from spending it outside the home to staying calm in a movie + blanket plan. And if you choose the latter, we have up to 26 new releases that you can see depending on the VOD content platform you have.
The biggest premiere is undoubtedly Netflix, which today launches a new anime ‘live action’ – and is already showing the cast of the One Piece it is preparing – such as that of the cult manganime Cowboy Bebop, The strongest bet of the month for Netflix, with a live-action version of the iconic Japanese work, a kind of space western with the bounty hunter Bebop and his companions as they go through the universe hunting criminals, with a sound and styles pure anime 80s.
But also Hellbound: Heading to Hell, a Korean original Netflix series created by the director of the brutal Train to Busan and already branded as the new The Squid Game – although it does not seem likely that it will become a phenomenon like the previous one.

And for those who like the theme of fantastic worlds, an original Prime called The wheel of time, set in a universe in which only some women can access the magic that this world offers.
