Practically the last week of August – we change the month in the middle of next week – in these seven days we have quite a few news, starting with an animated series that will not lack viewers in its premiere, such as The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare, an anime-style film based on the same literary saga that Netflix is also adapting live with Henry ‘Superman’ Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
We also have Someone like him, a film in which an influencer who specializes in reconversion bets claims that he can transform an unpopular partner into the king of the prom. And on August 24, HBO Spain premieres the historical fiction of Britannia and its fierce female characters returns with its third season.
Continuing with the theme of female protagonists, Movistar + premieres the blockbuster of the month with Wonder Woman 1984, sequel to one of the best superhero films since Marvel’s UCM and DC declared ‘war’, and in fact the first to have an exclusive protagonist superheroine – Captain Marvel came later.
And another of the outstanding premieres is undoubtedly Cruella, which from August 27 becomes free on Disney + for all subscribers, and you no longer have to pay the Premium price other than 21 euros to see it at home.
