Entertaining action-comedy, live-action of beloved videogame icons and thriller theses based on successful novels. Prime Video, Amazon’s streaming service, offers us in September various visions worthy of curiosity and interest, such as those included in our top 3. In addition to Sonic – The movie, adaptation for the big screen of the adventures of the blue hedgehog from SEGA, we focus on two exclusive titles of the platform such as My Spy, spy parody starring Dave Bautista, and the tense The Postcard Killings, a transposition of the bestseller by James Patterson and Liza Marklund.
For the rest of the proposals, you will usually find the following overview of the titles announced so far.
My Spy – 3 settembre
JJ, a work-hardened CIA agent, is demoted and finds himself at the mercy of a precocious nine-year-old girl named Sophie, after being sent to undercover her family.
In exchange for the promise not to blow her cover, Sophie convinces the agent to spend time with her and teach her to become a spy. Despite his initial reluctance, JJ finds he falls short of Sophie’s charm and disarming wit.
Peter Segal, cult director of light cinema come A blunt bullet 33 1/3 – The final insult (1994) e 50 first kiss times (2004), is at the helm of this action-comedy that sees the absolute protagonist the mighty Dave Bautista, accompanied by the very young Chloe Coleman which we will also see in the wait Avatar 2.
Sonic: The Movie – September 10th
The world needed a superhero, and a blue porcupine appeared. Equipped with incredible speed, Sonic lives undisturbed on planet Earth until he accidentally causes a huge short circuit, attracting the attention of the eccentric but brilliant Doctor Robotnik who goes after him.
Thus begins a race around the world of the super-villain in an attempt to capture Sonic, who will team up with Sheriff Tom Wachowski to save the planet in this action-packed adventure for the whole family.
Welcomed in moderation on our pages, the live-action dedicated to the iconic SEGA character he had to go through the well-known controversies about design before finally landing at the cinema. A simple and linear plot is elevated by the histrionic performance of a wild Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik.
