Apple chooses a weekly Movie of the week at the iTunes Store, whose purchase (even in 4K / HDR, depending on production) R $ 9.90.
The title selected this time was “Shazam!”, with Zachary Levi. Check out his trailer:
Here is the synopsis of the film:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a little magic to bring him out. In the case of Billy Batson (Asher Angel), just shout a word – SHAZAM! – and this clever 14-year-old orphan becomes the adult Superhero named Shazam (Zachary Levi), all thanks to an elderly wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Keeping a child’s heart – inside a healed body, like that of a god – Shazam is enchanted with this adult version of himself, doing what any teenager would do if he had superpowers: having a great time with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning from his hands? Or maybe skip the social studies exam? Shazam puts his skills to the test with a child’s cheerful recklessness. But he will have to master these powers soon to face the terrible forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio [@tripalavra], who is a movie buff, also sent us a comment about the film:
“Shazam!” changed the way DC of late has conducted its films. After two “failures”, including “Batman vs Superman: The Origin of Justice” and “Justice League”, the choice was for a lighter and more comic film. With no known or obvious actors, “Shazam!” it was well received by critics and the public. It was not an explosion but it pleased, even for the simplicity and the way the script tied other films in the universe and a sequel (“Adão Negro” comes around). I end my criticism by clarifying that the aforementioned “failure” was based on the negative way in which both films were received by the public / specialist critic in general. Even because the most avid fans ask that the version of “Justice League” be released with the cut of Snyder (but that is for another story).
