Netflix is back with a colorful series of interesting new titles: the high school thriller Do Revenge, Season 2 of a popular fantasy series, a comeback story, an anime adventure and a documentary about a financial scandal.
If you look closely, you’ll undoubtedly see this: Maya Hawke is the daughter of Hollywood stars Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke. Despite this circumstance, it took some time for the New York-born model to gain a serious foothold in acting in 1998. After a few TV parts and small roles in movies such as Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood”, he had a major breakthrough thanks to Netflix: Hawke playing patent ice cream salesman Robin Buckley in the global series Phenomenon” Stranger Things” since 2019.
Camila Mendes does not have famous parents. But the streaming service also played an important role in relation to his career. His hit series Riverdale can be aired on The CW in America. However, in large part of the rest of the world, millions of fans watch surprisingly over-the-top teen mystery dramas via Netflix.
In “revenge”In director/writer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson’s new feature film (including the screenplay for “Thor 4: Love and Thunder”), the young stars now stand together in front of the camera for the first time. And that – of course, someone would like to say! – For Netflix. The turbulent thriller-comedy, apparently inspired by Girls Club and Hitchcock classic Strangers on a Train alike, is available to stream to all subscribers starting today.
In addition to Hawke and Mendes, there are a few more familiar faces to watch: ex. B. Sophie Turner “Game of Thrones”, Talia Ryder (“First Sight, Last Kiss and Everything in Between”) or Rish Shah (“Ms. Marvel”).
“Revenge”: that’s about it!
Not long ago, Drea (Camila Mendes) was the queen of his high school. But then her boyfriend Max (Austin Abrams) forwards a topless video that was really only massive for her. The embarrassment is complete and Dre’s image is ruined.
There he meets the slightly eccentric Eleanor (Maya Hawke). She’s new to school and desperate because her old nemesis Carissa (Ava Capri) won’t leave her alone here either. Then the girls get an idea of how they can take revenge on their oppressors without being held accountable for it…
FINALLY: Season 2 of “Fate: The Winx Saga”
In addition to “Do Revenge”, the second season of the youth-adult fantasy series also begins today “Fate: Winx Saga”, Many fans will be glad that their wishes and complaints have been answered. Because along with Flora (Paulina Chavez), one of the most popular characters from the animated series “The Winks Club” on which the whole thing is based, is now filmed in real life as well.
However, in terms of content, season 2 seems to be deeper than the debut season. And compared to mold, it took a lot of liberties in this regard. Much has changed at the magical boarding school where young fairy Bloom (Abigail Cowen) and her friends are tutored. And not for the better. Dangerous is led by new director Rosalind (Leslie Sharp), who violently annihilates her predecessor, but an almost marshal regiment. Judging by the trailer – maybe to compensate for that? — but maybe too much romance at play.
