When we pass the equator of August, which means that this strange summer of 2020 has very little left to finish, the VOD platforms in Spain give us a small truce in terms of the pace of premieres. And although much awaited things are coming, it is appreciated that the number of new series and movies is not so high, which allows us to keep up to date with everything we want to see -or at least try.
To begin a series that has earned its cult aura: Lucifer, which after being on the verge of cancellation returns with a penultimate 5th season divided into two parts of which we will see the first this week. Although the real highlight of the week is Lovecraft Territory:
Produced by JJ Abrams and Jordan Peele (Let Me In), the ten episodes of the series tell the story of Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) who, along with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) ), team up to go on a road trip through 1950s Jim Crow America in search of their missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). What starts out as a journey turns into a struggle to survive and overcome the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could have spilled out of the pages of any Lovecraft book.
And when it comes to films, we have things like Cats, the musical that should have been one of the most acclaimed films of recent years – says the director of Les Miserables and The King’s Speech with a cast of pure luxury that even includes Taylor Swift-, but that has ended up being one of the biggest disasters in Hollywood remembered.
