Time does not fly, it slides. And when this week just started ends, it will be almost the middle of July, which indicates that the summer of 2021 will pass as quickly as that of 2020. And without a doubt, the number of premieres on the different VOD platforms that we have this week will contribute to it.
Disney + is the strongest one this week, with two of its heaviest weights of the year: First we have the highly anticipated Black Widow / Viuda Negra, which recovers the character of Natasha Romanoff to give her – FINALLY – her own film, which becomes the first of the 4th Phase of the UCM after the Infinity Gems saga. A story in which the Widow will have to deal apart from the villain on duty, with her family, and especially with her sister.
As for series, megaton, because in July it arrives Monsters at work the animated series based on one of Pixar’s most beloved IPs such as Monsters SA, and whose latest installment, Monsters University, premiered in 2013. The series tells the story of Tylor Tuskmon, a recently graduated rookie who wants to become a scarer, while recovering Mike and Sully, converted into senior managers of the company.
Another premiere, and very gamer, is that of Netflix with Resident Evil: Infinite DarknessParallel to Paul WS Anderson’s hated / loved feature film series with Milla Jovovich, Capcom produced up to three CGI films that told canon stories in the video game series using iconic characters such as Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield and his sister Claire. Netflix brings us Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a CGI series that falls between the Resident Evil 4 and RE 5 games that have Leon and Claire hunting the undead in a very curious setting: The White House.
And the second piece of the triptych ta slasher The Street of Terror, which despite adapting a series of books by the juvenile author RL Stine -Pesadillas-, there are three films with the R for those over 18 years old due to their gore content. The best thing is that the three films have the same protagonists and setting, but each one changes from year to year.
And in Movistar + the patriotic thriller by Daniel Calparsoro, Up to heaven -which shows that in Spain you can make movies with a good commercial invoice, and also the long shadow that La Casa de Papel has and will have.
