We are at the doors of the last weekend before Christmas, a week that by the way was loaded with premieres in the field of VOD services, with series and films expected from Netflix, HBO Max, Movistar +, Amazon Prime Video, Disney + and Filmin.
And if you want a great plan for this weekend, you can join watching Spider-man No Way Home in theaters with a marathon of the second season of The Witcher en casa, in which Henry Cavill is once again the warlock Geralt of Rivia. After adapting several of The Last Wish’s short stories in season 1, The Witcher Season 2 appears to be looking towards the novel Blood of Elves, with Geralt and Ciri traveling to Kaer Morhen.
And it is not the only premiere like this, since we remember that a couple of days ago HBO Max premiered the superb animated series of Harley Quinn, produced and headlined by a splendid Kaley Cuoco -The Big Bang Theory- in a cartoon series but for adults only because of its tremendous ultraviolence and racy jokes. A series with great scripts that brings the entire cast of DC heroes and villains while dealing with such serious issues as abuse, toxic relationships and the search for an identity of their own.
The thing is about new geeks / nerd / geeks because we also have the reboot of the Mortal Kombat saga, 90s film adaptation of the controversial and censored video game franchise – the first Mortal Kombat of 1993 was so scandalous in its ultraviolence that it spawned the seed of the PEGI video game rating code – with an installment that certainly has elements of video games and is quite entertaining, with some spectacular combats.
But if your thing is more the thriller, the investigation and the mystery, for the fans of And brown and his fetish character, Robert Langdon -El Code Da Vinci-, Movistar + brings the series The Lost Symbol, which more or less adapts the free namesake that was about to be the fourth film with Tom Hanks in the role of Langdon. And if you have children, the seventh season of Fast & Furious: Spies at full throttle, a version of the saga that is also canon and aimed at the most childish audience.
And after the reality show Celebrity Bake Off España that Prime Video premiered yesterday, the Amazon platform today brings what was its first great series of its own production: The Grand Tour: Carnage a Trois, the new special with the same old trio, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond y James May, and his madness around the world on board cars, trucks and anything that has a steering wheel and not necessarily wheels.
