Cinemas have a week full of premieres, with 10 releases in SP; know what they are – 05/18/2022 – Cinema

Man’s Best Friend is a great motto for works that want to gain a lot of viewers right away. This is the case of “Dog – The Adventure of a Lifetime”, which is released in theaters this Thursday 19, in which Channing Tatum shares the limelight with a restless Belgian Shepherd.

Here the bomb “Magic Mike” directs the film in which lives an ex-soldier who must take his dog to the funeral of a sergeant. On this journey, he faces the fury of the animal, but he also slowly enjoys its company.

Zac efron is another eye candy returning to the big screen with “Flames of Vengeance,” playing the father of a girl who, if disturbed, can set everything on fire. If the adolescent’s anger resembles that of “Carry”don’t be surprised — this is an adaptation of another book by Stephen Kingwhich has already given a previous theatrical production, still in the 1980s.

Another tense debut is Thai horror “The Medium,” which is in no way inferior to Hollywood productions by depicting possessions and macabre ritualism in a film that mimics the documentary style.

But the week is also filled with less storied films. This is the case of the national comedy “O Pai da Rita” —a comedy in which Ailton Graça and Wilson Rabelo play two samba musicians, friends and rivals—, “A Felicidade das Coisas” —about the emotional and financial crisis of ‘a 40-year-old woman—, “Quatro Amigas Numa Fria”—a comedy that follows a disastrous journey through Bariloche—and the French “Extraordinary Spirits”—in which a physically handicapped man takes a bath in self-knowledge .

Finally, there are also the releases of “Pureza”, “If I Tell, Do You Listen?” and “Miss France”. Check out the week’s top ten below.
