The new big movie coming to Netflix this weekend is Army of the dead, an impressive action story from the acclaimed director of Watchmen and the remake of Justice League, Zack Snyder. There will also be two other productions that you will not want to miss.
Another Netflix original movie is Fear Street Part One: 1994, the first installment of a new saga for horror lovers that will be released week after week. And finally Disney Plus adds one more character to its unpublished Marvel content, it is an animated and comedy series starring the super villain MODOK
Zack Snyder takes a break from superheroes and brings us an epic story with zombies. the film is about a multi-million dollar casino robbery in Las Vegas. Something like Ocean’s Eleven – except that Las Vegas is a crumbling city infested with zombies and a group of mercenaries armed to the teeth only have 32 hours before a nuclear bomb falls on them.
After a great season with the re-release of his own ‘lost’ version of the Justice League, Army of the Dead is the director’s return to the zombie genre for the first time since 2004’s Dawn of the Dead, a version contemporary of George Romero’s classic. The legendary fighter and actor Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) is the protagonist and leader of the gang that will try to get the 200 million dollars locked in the safe of an abandoned casino surrounded by murderous zombies.

Based on the adult book series by RL Stine – the author of Goosebumps – Fear Street Part One: 1994 is the first in a film trilogy that Netflix is releasing over the next three weekends.
We know is that the trilogy consists of a story that takes place in three very different eras. The first takes place in 1994, the second in 1978 and the third is in 1666. Horror fans are excited with this trilogy. They also like Netflix’s unusual approach of releasing each movie a week apart.

Marvel’s villain MODOK – what does it mean Mental Organism Designed Only to Kill – is one of the strangest comic book villains ever created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby: a giant head created by the evil and secret organization AIM (Advanced Idea Mechanics). MODOK ends up killing its creators and taking control of AIM to try to conquer the planet.
That’s the original version, but we don’t know what Disney (through its subsidiary Hulu) has in store for us. We only know that it is shot in stop-motion in the style of Robot Chicken and that it features comedian Patton Oswalt (MST3K) in the title role. That is to say, don’t expect a Marvel blockbuster in the style of Loki, but rather a comedy to laugh at all this superhero shebang, which is already beginning to saturate. It is necessary.
