Review of the premieres that hit theaters today, Friday, May 28.
As the most prominent title we have ‘Cruella‘(Buena Vista), a film that explores the rebellious beginnings of one of the best-known villains in cinema and famous for her elegance: Cruella de Vil, starring Emma Stone. Set in the London of the 70s, in the middle of the punk rock revolution, the film shows a young con artist named Estella, as well as the series of events that lead her to assume her evil side and become the strident and vindictive Cruella.
For its part, also interesting is the premiere of ‘Awaken the fury‘(Tripictures), an action thriller that brings together director Guy Ritchie with actor Jason Statham for the fourth time to tell us the story of H, the mysterious guy who has just joined as a security guard in an armored company. During an attempted robbery of his truck, he surprises his companions by displaying the skills of a professional soldier, leaving the rest of the team wondering who he really is and where he comes from.
Finally, we will also highlight ‘One of us‘(Universal), a tense dramatic thriller in which Kevin Costner and Diane Lane play a retired sheriff and his wife, respectively. After the loss of their son, they both leave their family ranch in Montana to regain their grandson, who is in the hands of a dangerous family living on the fringes of Dakota society.
