Disney also comes to war with premieres of weight for all subscribers, starting with Shang-Chi and the legend of the 10 rings, the second of the 3 Marvel UCM of this 2021 -after Black Widow and just before The Eternals-, an absolute joy Wuxia mixed with the Marvelian DNA that presents us with an adventure film and martial arts fights in a movie of those of enjoy a lot.
Today Friday we also have the open premiere of Jungle Cruise, one of those titles that Disney had delayed due to the pandemic and that is an adventure film in the purest and most classic sense of the term, with The Rock and Emily Blunt entering the heart of the Amazon. And to finish Finally alone at home, the remake -or pseudo-sequel- of the quintessential Christmas icon that is Home Alone -although the premiere a bit early, right?
But we continue, because Disney this Friday is crazy: We have Dopesick, a series based on how a single company, Big Pharma, sparked the worst drug addiction epidemic in American history.
