The supposedly paradisiacal virtual reality of ‘Upload’ shakes hands with a few war-civilist zombies and eighties-flavored time travel to guarantee a first-class weekend. And we have more: chocobos on wheels, wrestling, teenage witches and, of course, The Law. These are our plans for a first class weekend.

‘scoundrels’

Javier Ruiz Caldera, director of blockbusters such as ‘Anacleto Agent Secreto’, ‘Promoción Fantasma’ or ‘Superlópez’ and his regular editor, Alberto de Toro co-direct this mixture of comedy, horror and action that is not, of course, the typical Spanish film about the Civil War. In it, the rival sides of our conflict will have to face a ferocious wave of zombies, in one of the most iconoclastic and irreverent premieres of our Spanish cinema in a long time.

‘The Adam Project’

The Netflix formula for big-budget movies comes together this week in a movie of action, humor and science fiction with a cast that will take your breath away: Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Garner and Katherine Keener. With an air of nonchalance and pure eighties comedy, Reynolds brings to life a pilot from the future who will have to ally himself and his father in three different timelines to prevent a disaster that crosses all eras.

Upload S2

One of the most unique series in the entire Prime Video catalog is this weird and hilarious cyber version of ‘The Good Place’ produced by one of the creators of ‘The Office’. In this second season, the adventures of its protagonist continue, whose memory and personality have been downloaded in a virtual paradise for the rich, and which the series takes advantage of to pose a powerful satire of our dependence on the virtual, its artificiality and its appearances. The obligatory appointment for this weekend.

‘Net’

The new Pixar movie is already monopolizing critical acclaim for its cute, witty, and combative take on female puberty. In it, a 13-year-old girl who cannot get her mother to separate from her even for a moment, has to deal with a considerable inconvenience: every time she gets too excited about her, she turns into a giant red panda. . The usual ingenuity and technical neatness at Pixar, at the service of an original story that has been released directly on the Disney streaming platform.

‘cyrano’

Joe Wright, director of thrillers like ‘Hanna’ and ‘A Woman at the Window’, but also of period films like ‘Anna Karenina’ or ‘Pride & Prejudice (Pride and Prejudice)’ is responsible for this update of the classic ‘ Cyrano de Bergerac’ where the poet in love does not have a colossal nose, but a limited stature. Peter Dinklage brings this new Cyrano to life in a musical that has been nominated for best film at BAFTAs.
