Netflix franchises to keep you warm for 2021 releases

The cinemas have closed again. For good reason. And to start our series of stories, we have chosen productions from the market leader: Netflix. But not only that, and for you to heat up the engines, we’ve decided to select some blockbuster franchises or films from the platform’s collection that will be releasing new copies very soon this year – or that have recently debuted. Let’s take a look at this.

Justice League / Batman vs. Superman

On the internet, we only talk about the version of director Zack Snyder for the Justice League. For those who have been to Mars recently, the filmmaker couldn’t finalize the version of the film and walked away from the project, which led to another director taking over. Now, Warner will be releasing his version for the film, containing 4 hours of length, new scenes, greater development and more characters. The feature (and it’s a long time) will air on March 18, on a platform that has yet to arrive in Brazil (HBO Max) – however, other streaming services here will be offering an overproduction. And not to float, Netflix offers you the film that launched this universe, the controversial Batman vs Superman, which ends 5 years in 2021, the perfect opportunity for a new chance. Aside from that, it also features Wonder Woman (2017), the most acclaimed work of this phase of DC – whose streak kicked off late last year. And if you, like us, are a methodical movie buff / nerd, we still have the Justice League (2017) movie version for you to take a close look at noting the crucial differences – which we hope will be many.

Godzilla and Kong

Half the internet is about Zack Snyder’s Justice League and the other half is about the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong, also promised for March (or at least it was) in theaters. In the United States, it will be launched on the same platform mentioned above. And yes, there have already been other movies within this “monster” that you would be interested in watching before this iconic clash of the titans. You can check out two of them on Netflix. The first is Godzilla (2014), the zero point of this shared universe. The film stars two talented young actors with Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, here playing husband and wife. The following year, the duo would come to live their brothers in the Marvel film, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Olsen won his own series on Disney + with the same character, with WandaVision, an audience phenomenon. The second one you should see is Kong: Skull Island (2017), which is set during WWII and includes three other “Avengers”: Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury). Only Godzilla – King of the Monsters (2019) is missing from the Netflix collection to complete the Triad – which you should also watch.

A prince in New York

Enjoy watching:

The long-awaited sequel to this beloved ’80s film debuted on the competing platform, Amazon. The sequel took no less than 33 years to leave the role and shows Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) becoming king and discovering a son in New York who needs to return to America. And this is where you can double down between the two big platforms, discovering this true comedy classic first, before moving on to the new. A Prince in New York (1988) remains very current and hilarious, being one of the biggest hits of star Eddie Murphy’s career. To give you an idea, the film had already done much of what was created and lauded in the Black Panther phenomenon (2018), i.e. a work with a predominantly black cast, set in a fictitious country of Africa, very rich and prosperous. , where the protagonist is the absolute monarch. Both also aim to break tradition and love. The difference is that in this laughter and nudity are guaranteed.

Karate kid

Here, with this franchise, following a full circle on Netflix. One of the platform’s most successful efforts today is the Cobra Kai series, which debuted its third season in early 2021 and already has its fourth confirmed. The show has become one of the most popular with viewers around the world, whether they are seasoned “orphans” or just new fans who may not be familiar with old movies. Well, your troubles are over. Whether you’re a connoisseur looking for nostalgia and a new visit, or wondering about the past of what you’re watching, Netflix has just brought all (or most) of the Karate Kid franchise into its collection. The first three films (1984, 1986 and 1989) starring Ralph Macchio (Daniel LaRusso) and the late Pat Morita (Mr. Miyagi) are pure nostalgia. And although the first is the best shot, all are necessary for a better appreciation of the program, believe me. Only the fourth feature film was missing, starring Hilary Swank. While this is “hard to hurt”, it would be interesting if it made sense for the series as well (perhaps with the Oscar-winning actress participating and meeting Daniel San, since both were formed by the same Dear Master). Ah yes, instead we have the 2010 remake, starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, on Netflix.

Matrix

Yes, The Matrix will be releasing a fourth film later this year at the end of December. Scheduled for the end-of-year holiday in the United States on December 22, almost at Christmas, Matrix 4 will be another Warner film for the HBO Max collection. In Brazil, depending on how we are there, it should be released in theaters. The new feature will bring back the protagonists Keanu Reeves (Neo) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity), but for now nothing on Laurence Fishburne and her Morpheus. However, Jada Pinkett Smith (Niobe) and Lambert Wilson (Merovingian), the sequences are very confirmed. In the management, only one, or rather, now one, of the Wachowski, Lana. In terms of new blood, the additions are Yahya Adbul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Neil Patrick Harris (Serial Misadventures), Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter) and Priyanka Chopra (The White Tiger). For you to remember or to keep up to date (since at the end of the year we will only talk about it), Netflix has available in its catalog the complete Matrix trilogy, with the premiere (1999) and the sequences, Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions, both released in 2003. Matrix was one of the most influential films of the turn of the century.

Space Jam – Game of the Century

Warner is not kidding this year. Largely because of the pandemic, but also thinking about leveraging its new streaming product, the aforementioned HBO Max, the studio decided to release all of its movies on the platform, including overproductions, and we had some. already three on the list, now reaching the fourth. . Launched 25 years ago, Space Jam was Roger Rabbit’s Snare (1988) of the 90s. Well, perhaps to a lesser extent because the feature film achieved something new: bringing together the properties of several studios. in one movie. Here we only have the characters from Warner / Looney Tunes, which is more than enough. In the plot, the future of dear cartoons is in danger, and their freedom will depend on winning a basketball game against terrible monsters. So Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the whole gang call on then-retired Michael Jordan to return to court and save them. Despite the robotic performance of the player’s protagonist, the film is beyond fun. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the launch, a sequel will finally be rolling out of the oven as a gift. The star at the time is Lebron James, who will team up with former acquaintances. For the benefit of the sequel, technological advancement to put real actors and drawings side by side. Space Jam – The New Legacy debuts in July, while you miss the original on Netflix.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Earlier, I said that we would not talk about Matrix 4 until the end of the year. Well, the truth is, Neo and co’s new cyber adventure will have to share the limelight with Tom Holland’s third foray as Marvel’s greatest hero, Spider-Man. No Way Home, official title, promises the meeting of the three Spider-Man of the cinema, in addition to Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. As far as everything is just a rumor, but we have confirmed the presence of Alfred Molina, reprising the role of the villainous Dr. Octopus, in Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Jamie Foxx, as Electro, in The Spectacular Spider- Male 2 (2014). Read between the lines. After the success of WandaVision, anything left unanswered in the program will continue here, since we’ll even have Benedict Cumberbatch present as Doctor Strange. And if you’re not an avid Marvel fan but don’t want to be left out of the plot, a tip is Homecoming (2017), the first part of Holland’s journey as a hero – taking advantage of the fact that it was one of the only Marvel Films deleted to make up the Disney + collection.

Impossible mission

If that wasn’t reason enough to revisit the films in this franchise every now and then to be just plain amazing, and a milestone in the mix between suspense, intriguing storylines and unbridled action, a novelty of this series in theaters, the seventh, is promised for 2021, in November. So, nothing is fairer (and fun) than giving that refreshed memory by returning to all of Agent Ethan Hunt’s missions – the second most famous in cinema. And yes, I’ve said them all, since Netflix brings all six movies released so far into its collection. It all started 25 years ago, with Mission: Impossible, by Brian De Palma, the most suspense-focused. Afterwards, from 2000, the master of action John Woo, gave new tunes showing that the series had the potential to be a blockbuster. The third (2006), directed by JJ Abrams, began to align itself more with the shape of what the franchise should be in the cinema, and introduced a narrative line maintained until today (with the wife of the protagonist ). The fourth, Ghost Protocol (2011), can be considered the first of the new phase of success, which ultimately honed the franchise in one tone. The fifth, Nação Secreta (2015), and the sixth, Fallout Effect (2018), are the climax, opening up countless possibilities for this long-running franchise, which has no end date.
