After a particularly intense week in terms of blockbusters and Triple A, this week things are a bit more ‘calm’ in terms of pace and premieres. But beware, that doesn’t mean we don’t have things to see. In fact there are, and quite a few, because finally HBO premieres a new series.
But we start with the main course, which is Prime Video: After less than a year between one and another, we already have here the second season of El Cid, Prime Video’s Spanish epic fiction in blockbuster format that according to its trailer seeks that Game of Thrones tone, but with the quintessential Spanish hero, in a series starring Jamie Lorente, who comes from the ultra-popular La Casa de Papel and Elite. This season, palace intrigues and fraternal rivalry will increase in pursuit of the Kingdom’s throne after the death of King Ferdinand.
And the reality show Making the Cut, in which the (still supermodel) Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, accompanied by another top model such as Winnie Harlow and Moschino’s creative director, Jeremy Scott, will team up in search of the best international fashion designer.
In HBO Spain we have interesting series like The White Lotus, a satirical comedy ideal for the summer, because it focuses on the guests and workers of a tropical ‘resort’ on vacation. And with a female cast that includes Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge or Alexandra Daddario. In Filmin we have the teenage story ‘coming of age’ with a curious title: Death of Nintendo -with a star cameo from a FamiCom and everything.
And Netflix highlights the closing with the latest installment of Teen slasher trilogy The Street of Terror, which despite adapting a series of books by the juvenile author RL Stine -Pesadillas-, there are three films with the R for those over 18 years old due to their gore content. The best thing is that the three films have the same protagonists and setting, but each one changes from year to year.
