Since we are about to close the month, Netflix only has a new premiere for the weekend, Someone like him, a remake ‘of the classic from the 90s Someone like You which adapts its plot to tell the story of Padgett, a makeup influencer whose boyfriend embarrasses her in front of the whole class. To get revenge and prove his talent, he decides to make one of the least popular boys in his class the king of the prom.
And we remember that if you have not seen it yet, this week Netflix premiered The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare, an anime-style film based on the same literary saga that Netflix is also adapting live with Henry ‘Superman’ Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
