Rebel Moon, the blockbuster film

It’s Netflix that will host Jack Snyder’s (highly anticipated) diptych… The first part, titled Child of Fire, will be released on December 22, 2023. This space opera, very loosely inspired by Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, takes place in the far reaches of a galaxy where a space colony is threatened by the tyrant, Balisarius, and his army. Desperate, the civilian population chooses Kora (played by Sofia Boutella), a young woman with a mysterious past, to recruit a group of warriors…

Release: December 22, 2023, on Netflix.

The Buccaneers

Newly released, this series recounts the adventures of 5 wealthy young New Yorkers who travel to London to find a rich husband. The action takes place in the late 19th century. And these heiresses, whose parents are “newly rich,” will have a hard time adapting to local customs and traditions. The Buccaneers is a pop adaptation of Edith Warton’s eponymous novel. It deals with feminism, friendship, and stereotypes– but from a cheerful perspective. An irresistible series to discover!

Available on Apple TV.

Maestro, the must-see biopic

For his second film, Bradley Cooper explores the rise of Leonard Bernstein, the composer of the musical, West Side Story. In this biopic, Cooper is in front of and behind the camera since he takes on the role of the famous conductor. Maestro mainly retraces his story with Felicia Montealegre Bernstein, his wife. This Costa Rican actress (a former Broadway star) was a true muse for Bernstein… In the marathon of 2023 series, Maestro is one of the films to watch!

Release: December 20 on Netflix.


The Crown, the final curtain

The Crown is over… Netflix is about to release the final episodes of Season 6. While the first part focused on Diana and the events that led to her death, the second part returns to Prince Charles and Camilla’s marriage, but also the beginnings of the romance between Prince William and Kate Middleton… No reference to Meghan and Harry’s love story or the Megxit. Royal gossip fans will be disappointed!

Release: 2nd part available on December 14 on Netflix
