Jumanji: welcome to the jungle
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, released in 2017, offers a sequel to the original film, released in 1995 and adapted from the novel by Chris Van Allsburg, in a Hollywood blockbuster version that seizes video game codes. Exit the board game, Jumanji has become a video game that will suck four archetypal high school students into its universe. Except that everything will not go as planned, and instead of the characters they have chosen, each teenager will be decked out with a completely different avatar. For this Jumanji in blockbuster style, we find a 5-star cast, cut out for comedy, made up of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (No Pain No Gain, Fast and Furious), Kevin Hart (Scary Movie 3 and 4, Borderlands), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Who) et Jack Black (Rock Academy, Thunder in the tropics). The production is provided by Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher), while the script writing has been entrusted, among others, to Chris McKenna (American Dad!, Community) and Jeff Pinkner (Alias, Fringe).

Resident Evil : Infinite Darkness
Resident Evil : Infinite Darkness is a CG animated series and the result of an American-Japanese collaboration produced by Netflix and TMS Entertainment. This is fully integrated within the lore of the franchise since the plot takes place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. We find Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield trapped in a White House teeming with hungry zombies. Our two heroes are respectively voiced, in English, by Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello. In French, they are Anatole de Bodinat (Noctis in Final Fantasy XV) and Kelly Marot (Nobara Kugisaki in Jujutsu Kaisen) which provide dubbing. The project is supervised and written by Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Devil May Cry 4, Resident Evil: Vendetta, Dragon’s Dogma), producer of video games and animes / series at Capcom, while many directors, such as Eiichiro Hasumi (Assassination Classroom) will follow one another over the course of the episodes.

How I became a superhero is a French film directed by Douglas Attal. This is the adaptation of the novel by Gerald Bronner released in 2007. The plot takes place in 2020 in a city of Paris where supermen have found their place in society. We follow Lieutenant Moreau (Pio Marmaï) who investigates a mysterious substance, offering superpowers, alongside Cécile Schaltzmann (Vimala Pons), a new recruit. The two police officers will also be able to count on Monté Carlo (Benoît Poelvoorde) and Castilla (Leïla Bekhti), two former vigilantes. With a pitch reminiscent of The Boys and the V component, the film was inspired by certain films and series such as Watchmen, Batman or Daredevil. An atmosphere that stands out from traditional Marvel-style superhero films by focusing on a more realistic universe that relies on society, as well as on more tormented urban heroes.
