The first week of February will be a quiet week. No loud premieres for you. Moreover, both among feature films and among TV series. Except for the start of the next season of the "Heads and Tails" show. But let's not despair. Let's take a look at what we have, and maybe pick something worthwhile for a Sunday trip to the cinema.
Foreign film premieres
Let's start with the foreign countries, which this week are represented by nine paintings, two of which are cartoons. And the most worthwhile tape can rightfully be considered ...
Fast family (USA). IMDb 7.6
Production company: Paramount Pictures.
Genres: Drama, Comedy.
Director: Sean Anders.
In chap. Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Gustavo Quiros Jr., Isabela Moner and others
Pete and Ellie Wagner, played perfectly by Mark Wahlberg and Rose Breen, are trying to quickly become a mom and dad by adopting children from the outside. When they are told at the adoption center that this is a long and tedious process, it does not stop them. They come to the orphanage and try to pick up a "younger" baby when their attention comes to an adult teenager - a girl named Lizzie, who immediately expressed everything she thought about them.
And then the Wagners broke through. They wanted to adopt Lizzie by all means. As it turned out, Lizzie also has a brother and sister. And if we are to adopt them, then we will have to all together. But how to find a common language with children who have never been brought up in a normal family and are used to doing whatever comes into their heads?
As it turned out, all that was needed to establish mutual understanding in the family was to pierce a small foot with a nail, crumble the walls and furniture in the old house and write a sentimental letter.
The film looks easy and casual. What the doctor ordered is for family fun. Believe me, after watching this feed everyone will be a little kinder.

Production companies: El Deseo, INCAA and ICO.
Genres: Drama, Crime, Biography.
Director: Luis Ortega.
In chap. starring: Lorenzo Ferro, Chino Darin, Mercedes Moran, Daniel Fanego and others.
Sometimes, behind the angelic face is still that rotten soul. Just like in the case of the main character of this film, 17-year-old Carlitos. Raised in the spirit of extreme thieves surrealism, a reckless teenager creates such obscene things and lives by such laws that cannot normally fit even in his idiotic empty head. Straight like a Tetris curve.
All this is the cost of the under-education of his neighbors, who, raising him, each time tried to get something out of the poor child's soul for themselves, and in return they put in there anything that does not weigh a cent. So Carlitos grew up with "robbed brains".
And what is he to do now, except "stole, drank, in jail"? And it's good if only so. What if he also “killed”?
The Adventures of Aladdin (France). IMDb 2.4
Production companies: Pathe, M6 Films and 74 films.
Director: Lionel Steckti.
In chap. starring: Kev Adams, Jamel Debbouz, Ramzi Bedia, Vanessa Guid, Eric Judor and others.
The film is a sequel to the French comedy "The New Adventures of Aladdin", released in 2015. But if that one had at least some scenario and some kind of acting, then there is no scenario, and the acting is completely absent.
Anyone who wants to know how not to make films can watch this masterpiece sequel to the idiotic prequel. Those who do not need such lessons can safely go further.

And only the chosen little boy, born under the constellation Leo, will acquire the ability to return the lost art to the people, personally harnessing the power of divine knowledge contained in the stone of the power of the nine Gods.

Future Mirai (Japan). IMDb 7.2

Anime about how difficult it is, at times, to live with the fact that in a family you are suddenly, overnight, relegated to the background of your newly born sister. Yesterday Mirai was the highlight of the program. And today everyone revolves around his newborn sister.
It is much easier to say "I am not an egoist" than it is really to be. But Mirai, unexpectedly, come to the aid of his distant and not so relatives, who meet him in a fairy-tale world, into which he unexpectedly fell by the wave of some strange magic.
There is, by the way, his sister here. Only here she, for some reason, is much older than Mirai himself. And it is she who, first of all, will help our protagonist to “cleanse” his soul so that it shines with renewed and pure love for neighbors.
New items from USA filmmakers

Vanya Makarevich, the one that the son of Andrei Makarevich, the leader of the well-known group "Time Machine", made his way to the main roles. Did the daddy's connections help? Although, we should care about it. The main thing is that the film is interesting.
And he, judging by the trailer, promises to be a third-rate naive bullshit, in which the actors, and first of all, Vanya, replay in an amateurish way. But let's not guess, but let's go through the plot for now.
A guy and a girl have love and they decide to get married. The guy wants to provide his darling inside and out and opens his own business. Only at every turn a mysterious "someone" begins to put a spoke in his wheels. Everywhere around everything falls and collapses. And then the guy decides to declare war on this mysterious "someone" and begins his military investigation.
We will learn about who this mysterious "someone" is after watching the full movie.

A friend advises her to contact the Institute of Somnology, where she, among others, is immersed in a collective sleep with the help of some advanced equipment.

New seasons of TV series
There are not that few of them this week, but practically none. All significant projects managed to start long before the New Year and right after it. Now there is a lull in this field. The situation with the series will not improve next week either. Although, why should we worry, because at the present time so many serial blockbusters have been launched! "True Detective", "Gotham", "Riverdale", "Recruit", "Double", "Shameless", "Lethal Weapon", "Man from the Future" and so on. There is something to look at. So, are we sad?
Especially when a new season of a TV show comes out on TV screens ...

Only now everything goes awry ...
On this we are forced to say goodbye to you. Of course, there are not enough heavy premieres this week. Not many more of them will be throughout February, except for the cartoons "The Lego Movie" and "Train Your Dragon-3". But in March it will thaw. Captain Marvel, Disney's Dumbo will be out, TV people will launch the long-awaited second season of American Gods, and then April with its Game of Thrones is just around the corner.
So, let's wait impatiently, and rummage on the Internet in search of all the same worthwhile films and TV series. And may you come across them more often than usual in this stagnant February!
