After a week before reassuring in terms of the rhythm of premieres, but with some very interesting ones, this week Netflix is once again taking a run and releasing two of the most anticipated new series of the summer, and particularly one of them of the most anticipated of the year by several demographics.
This week we have the nostalgic eighties revival of one of the symbols of popular culture of that era: He-Man, who returns with Masters of the Universe: Revelation, an exclusive animated series from Netflix that brings back the particular universe that played to mix both Sword and Witchcraft and Science Fiction. And he does it with one of the best trailers of the year, the quintessential nerdy guru Kevin Smith reaching out and a brutal cast of voices: Mark Hamill (voice of the Joker in Batman Animated Series or Arkham Asylum games) as Skeletor, Sarah Michelle Gellar like Teela, Kevin Conroy (voice of Batman in Batman Animated Series or Arkham Asylum games) as Mer-Man, and Lena Heady (300, Dredd, Game of Thrones) as Evil-Lyn.
In addition, the return of a national premiere with the Red Sky season 2: We’ve barely had time to see the first season, and the speedy escape road movie that is Sky Rojo returns this month with a second season in which the girls keep trying to escape their old environment. Coral, Wendy and Gina are back, and so is the twisted humor and action of this series. And to finish Blood Red Sky, with a mix as strange as it is great for the summer: Air abductions, maternal drama and vampires, all at the same time.
Also, at Disney we have Partners and Hounds, remake of Tom Hanks’ iconic 80s film in which they put a pretty crazy dog as a partner. And for the dads the Planet of the Apes trilogy, with a brutal performance of Andy Serkis unfairly not recognized at the Oscars that this week brings the second installment of the triptych.
