On a weekend undoubtedly marked by appointments like tomorrow’s Spain at Euro 2021Those who are not footballers or want to have something else to entertain themselves at home, can take a look at the billboard of VOD premieres on video on demand, because there are quite a few important premieres without a doubt. We are going to review the best movies and premiere series from Netflix, Amazon, HBO and Disney + to watch this weekend:
At Disney +
At Disney +, along with the weekly episode of Loki for those who have not seen it -released in the middle of the week, this weekend we also have the premiere of Luca, the last Pixar that mixes the beautiful Italian riviera with a plot of sea monsters, a kind of Lovecraft and Cthulhu for children directed by the signer of the precious short La Luna.
And no, you don’t have to pay a separate extra, since unlike other Premium releases like Cruella, Luca is free for all Disney subscribers. In addition, on the VOD platform you have the inclusive series With love, Victor, which returns with an ideal second season for the month we are in: LGBTQ + Pride month.
The bombshell of the month and the most anticipated releases of the year by its base audience, Elite season 4 comes directly to maintain the loyalty of its audience without hardly changing its scheme, the new season of Elite and its (impossible) boarding school Las Encinas brings a new director to the center and new blood in the form of three new students who will mix with part of the cast who is back, like Omar and Ander, Guzmán, Rebeka or Cayetana. A new mystery and a new death to unravel.
In Movistar +
Another AAA premiere, if you were left with more zombies desire after Zack Snyder’s Army of Dead relocation, you have more in Peninsula: After ‘Train to Busan’, one of the great successes of recent Korean fantasy cinema, director Yeon Sang- ho (‘Seoul Station’, ‘The Fake’, ‘Psychokinesis’) returns to its zombie universe with this sequel set four years after the events narrated by ‘Train to Busan’, when the zombie contagion spread across the Korean peninsula , turning it into a post-apocalyptic desert.
Plus Fatale, in which Hilary Swank (‘The Hunt’, ‘Million Dollar Baby’) plays a manipulative detective who turns the world of the successful sports agent played by Michael Ealy upside down (‘The Following’ series, ‘What men think about ‘) in this psychological “thriller”, close to “neo noir”, directed by Deon Taylor (‘ Black and Blue ‘,’ Traffik ‘).
And a documentary for Sunday: The Departed, documentary miniseries in which Ulrich Larsen, a former chef who has a quiet life in Denmark with his wife and children, embarks on a dangerous mission for more than ten years: he infiltrates the most totalitarian and enigmatic regime in the world, that of North Korea.
On HBO Spain
On HBO this week we’ve had quite a few movies – how long has it been since you reviewed the Indiana Jones tetralogy? – But we also have GENERATE + ION. Season 1, Part 2, a dark but hilarious half-hour series that follows a diverse group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality (gadgets and all) tests some deeply held beliefs about life, love, and the nature of the family in a conservative community.
And in movies, on the one hand the correct one A long trip, in which the always great Colin Firth – accompanied by Nicole Kidman – plays an ex-soldier captured and tortured in the Second World War who, many years later, faces his Japanese captor. And pride Babel, second work in Hollywood by Alejandro Gonzalez-Iñárritu with a spectacular cast and unrepeatable performances such as that of the actress Rinko Kikuchi, in this tapestry of different stories of different characters in different parts of the world.
On Amazon Prime Video
More for the fans of the Z, without a doubt looking to stretch the gum as much as they can, last year we had the next spin off of the famous The Walking Dead with The Walking Dead: World Beyond , in which a group of teenagers sheltered from the dangers of the post-apocalyptic world receive a message that inspires them to leave the safety of the only home they have ever known and to embark on a journey across the country to save their father.
And the premiere of the 3rd season of one of the most intense series that has become a phenomenon -at least it was in its first 2 seasons: The Handmaid’s Tale.
And Apple TV +
A single premiere, but ideal for eighties fans, in Physical we have a half-hour-long comedy set on the idyllic but fragile beach paradise of sunny San Diego in 1980. In it Sheila Rubin (Rose Byrne), a silent but tortured housewife who supports her intelligent but controversial husband, battle behind closed doors with his own demons related to his own image … until he finds a way out in the most surprising source: the world of aerobics.
The dark side of a dual fantasy in the USA of the 80s, in which on the one hand Jane Fonda taught the cult of the body and not hide it, and Ronald Reagan promulgated the return to traditional values from the White House.
