Without a doubt, it is a weekend brimming with returns: The meta killer of ‘Scream’ returns to theaters, ‘The Peacemaker’ returns, who survived ‘The Suicide Squad’, ‘Monster Hunter’ and ‘God of War’ return in the PC version… but not everything is nostalgia this weekend, and we have 13 varied shots and chicha for you to squeeze it thoroughly.
New installment of the legendary franchise that revitalized the genre slasher set in the late 1990s and which brings us back to Neve Campbell, now far from her youthful years, back in her hometown to find out who has committed a series of crimes.

Magnificent start to this sequel to one of the most unique characters in James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’. He survived that nonsense but still has to carry out missions at the command of the government. Quirky secondary, extreme and thug humor, a John Cena in his sauce and tasty recoveries of heroes and villains of third of the DC Universe whom no one seemed to remember, such as Judo Master or Vigilante.
At the absolute opposite extreme of James Gunn’s vision of superheroes is that of the CW network, the Warner subsidiary that has made a fortune with its friendly and general vision of DC heroes. To its new versions of classic heroes like Flash or Supergirl are added their own heroes, and in that wave is this ‘Naomi’, recently released in the United States and which portrays the discovery of a teenager of a series of powers Superhuman.

His argument revolves around that: the reconstruction of some mysterious documentaries and the implication in them of a sect whose tentacles reach further than it seems.

In this case, a trio of top-notch names (Joel Coen, directing solo for the first time, Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand) adapting a classic revisited a thousand times, but here with a very careful black and white aesthetic that is waking up on fire. praise among critics.
