On a weekend undoubtedly marked by appointments like the final of the Eurocup 2021Those who are not football fans or want to have something else to entertain themselves at home, can take a look at the billboard of VOD premieres in video on demand, because there are a huge number of premieres of weight without a doubt, counting from Friday 9 to Sunday 11.
After a previous weekend in which we saw practically nothing, this is the one that sweeps. After releasing Monsters at work the animated series based on one of Pixar’s most beloved IPs such as Monsters SA, Disney + hits the megaton on the table with its most ambitious VOD premiere, nothing less than the following Marvel film: 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.
Just yesterday one of the most anticipated Netflix (and very gamer) arrived for this July, as it is 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.
Also, the second piece of the teen slasher triptych 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.
But this weekend, and how could it be otherwise being Netflix, we have quite a few things -which in fact is impossible to see in 2 days:
- A place to dream, season 3
- Biohackers, season 2
- Atypical, season 4
- Close Enough
- Trilogy ‘The street of terror’, second delivery
- That summer
- How I became a superhero
- The water man
- Finding Hubby
- How they became tyrants
- Lee Su-guen: The Sense Coach
