HBO Max prepares many things for the beginning of spring, many premieres that include the return of the maestro Michael Mann to television -Heat, Ali, The Last of the Mohicans, The Dilemma, Miami Vice- with TOKYO VICE, the series created by the screenwriter of ‘Oslo’. He also returns The city is Ours next April 26. Also, Y The baby will put the comic and terrifying counterpoint in a horror comedy that opens on the 25th.
In addition, this month sees the return of greatest hits: Gentleman Jack returns for its second season, as well as Made for Love. En The Flight Attendant we will have Kaley Cuoco back as a stewardess who will be joined by Sharon Stone in this new season; and the series Barry will try again to leave the past behind in its third season.
From Europe, on day 1 we get the thriller Thawingthe political drama The Informant and two very varied programs: checking, a personal and literal journey through the Czech Republic discovering its gastronomy and beauty; and One True Singer, the Romanian talent show that starts right where others end.
And the fourth season of the wacky kiwi supernatural comedy Wellington Paranormal, a spin-off of the masterful What We Do in the Shadows that follows in the wake of Taika Waititi’s absurd and quality comedy, and that follows Minogue and O’Leary, two police officers who are dedicated to investigating all kinds of paranormal events that are taking place in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, with ghosts, Nosferatu-style vampires or hideous bugs nicknamed ‘Cheese Face’.
But for an outstanding premiere, nothing less than one of the Wizarding World surgent of the saga Harry Potter: Fantastic Beasts: A Natural History, a documentary presented by that national treasure that is Stephen Fry that delves into the populated animal world of the sagas to discover the inspirations of the mythological creatures of the stories.
In the cinema section, HBO Max also brings Criminal Saints (April 5), the film that serves as a prequel to the story of ‘The Sopranos’ (already available in full on HBO Max), as well as the cryptic -and divisive- TENET (April 23), the latest work from Christopher Nolan and The Way Back, the sports drama starring Ben Affleck, which will arrive on April 11.
