We are already at the weekend, for some on vacation, for others on rest at home / work. Whether you are summering or working, for when you have a little free time this weekend we have very interesting and varied premieres, starting with the nostalgic-geek-eighties earthquake of He-Man. We are going to review the best Netflix premiere movies and series, Amazon, HBO Y Disney+ to watch this weekend:
Netflix imposes itself this weekend with the premiere of two of the most anticipated new series of the summer, and particularly one of them of the most anticipated of the year by various demographics. 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. And if you are a fan of Guillermo del Toro, his creation of Trollhunters returns with Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans.
In Movistar +
At Movistar + we have today Friday 23 The Croods: a new era, in which the famous cave family appears again on the big screen in this second adventure in which the Croods, having survived prehistoric beasts with immense fangs and even the very end of the world, must now face their greatest challenge: meet another family. And on Sunday 25 It snows in Benidorm: Isabel Coixet directs and writes this ‘thriller noir’ with ‘femme fatale’ and anti-hero included. Produced by the Almodóvar brothers through El Deseo and starring Timothy Spall and Sarita Choudhury, the film tells the peculiar universe of the city of Benidorm, populated by Spanish and English whose worlds rarely cross.
But the main course is undoubtedly the Special programming: ’10 years without Amy, with:
– Movistar Fest (dial 23). Amy (The girl behind the name). This Oscar- and BAFTA-winning documentary (2016) chronicles the tragic life of Amy Winehouse, the last great pop diva. Classic Albums:
– Amy Winehouse. Back to Black: It was the album that made Amy Winehouse an international icon. On this occasion, we moved to The Electric Lady studios and Salaam Remi’s own studio in Miami to film, from the places where the album was originally recorded, its producers: Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
– Amy Winehouse in concert: Amy Winehouse’s concert held at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London, where she performed songs like ‘Rehab’ or ‘Back to Black’, among others. The most important music critics defined her as “the main representative of modern soul” and in this concert we will be able to hear again and relive an artist with a unique voice.
Quiet weekend although not exempt from premieres, at Disney + through the Star catalog we have for parents 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. And for fans of sharks, no less than 6 documentaries about sharks:
– Playing with sharks
– The secrets of the bull shark
– Shark vs. Surfer
– The shark against the tuna
– Shark vs. whale
– Sharks and volcanoes
Just a couple of things, we have the anime Her Blue Sky, in a delicate story that mixes adolescence, nostalgia, sad romance, unsolved situations and supernatural elements. Y Jolt, an action film in which a groundbreaking Kate Beckinsale once again demonstrates why she is one of the best action actresses, in a film in which she plays a security officer with anger management problems who embarks on a crusade against those who have killed his friend.
In HBO Spain
Another weekend without new series, HBO Spain makes up for it with a handful of films, such as the duology La Woman in Black, whose first installment stars a dedicated Daniel Radcliffe in an exercise of pure love for the horror Hammer films of the 50s – the same ones that Tim Burton has been honoring his entire career. We also have Molly’s Game, with a great lead performance by the always great Jessica Chastain. Y Grace of Monaco, in which Nicole Kidman mimics the skin of Grace Kelly from the moment she finished her last filming in Hollywood to go to Monaco and become the prince’s wife. And if you want laughs, the Gypsy King by Juanma Bajo Ulloa, a film in which he tried to re-green the tremendous success of his Airbag with a fierce parody of today’s Spain, but which was literally dismembered by the critics.
