New year, new movie—or nearly so. Although 2022 has already started with everything, the Brazilian has not yet fully embarked on the news and has brought many of his favorite features of 2021. So much so that our list of most watched movies of the week brings some well-known titles, mainly related to Man- Spider.

At the same time, some news has already started to appear in this first half of January. The classic Panic and Sing: Who Sings His Evils Amazes emerged on the ride of the premiere of their sequels in the cinema, while The Legend of the Green Knight and King Richard have just arrived on streaming and digital stores, making people run after these news.
It is worth noting that there is still no official tool that measures the audience of movies on streaming and video on demand services and that the best way to do this is from JustWatch, a platform that helps users find what watch and also what streaming the content is available on.
So, based on these data, we arrived at an approximate ranking of which were the most watched movies of the week in Brazil.
10. Spider-Man: Far From Home
The weakest film by Tom Holland is also the one that gives the cue to No Return Home. In it, we see Peter Parker going on a school trip to Europe after the Avengers saved the world from Thanos’ blip. It had everything to be a peaceful vacation, until someone showed up claiming to be a multiverse traveler and wanting your help.
What’s interesting about the film is that it gives enormous weight to the death of Iron Man and how it affects Peter, who saw Tony Stark as a father figure — and that’s all well-crafted to develop the character.

The Legend of the Green Cavelrio tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), the nephew of King Arthur, who goes on a journey after accepting the challenge of the enigmatic Green Knight, a giant, emerald-skinned being who one day appears making a stranger. challenge the protagonist.

One of the greatest slasher classics of the 1990s, Panic remains iconic to this day. The idea of a group of teenagers trying to escape a murderer is not very creative, but the whole construction of the mystery around the serial killer under the mask is something that still intrigues us.
And all this mythology was built very well in the first film, which features a group of young people having to escape this killer at the same time as they try to discover his identity. Soon the story becomes a game of cat and mouse, in which the group must discover the identity of the serial killer while trying to survive for one more night.

5. Sing: Who Sings His Evils Amazes
The musical animation brings all the charisma of very fun characters with an amazing soundtrack — a combination that we know always works very well in the genre. To that end, Sing: Quem Canta Seus Males Espanta creates a world populated by animals and highlights a friendly koala that, in order to keep its theater open, creates a singing competition that will move the city.
From there, we have a variety of great characters lavishing talent and playing with famous songs and showing that, in the end, it’s being together that sets the tone.
Sing: Quem Canta Seus Males Espanta is available on Telecine and for purchase and rental on Now, Claro Videos, Google Play and iTunes.
4. The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electro’s Menace
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Menace of Electro is one of the films that converges to No Return Home, as the villain Electro is in the new feature. And while the story has a bit of a childish tone, it still manages to be impactful enough to recreate one of the most memorable events in Spider-Man’s stories.
In addition, even with all the criticism, the film is still very much remembered mainly because the actor Andrew Garfield is great at playing the Friendly Neighborhood, giving all the irreverence that the character needs. You can clearly tell he’s having fun with it all — too bad the script doesn’t help as much.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Electro Menace is available on Globoplay, Starzplay, Now, Microsoft Store, Looke, Claro Videos and iTunes.
3. Venom: Time of Carnage
Critics may have slammed it, but the truth is that Venom is a real success and loved by the public. And Time for Carnage is everything that comic book fans who grew up with 1990s comics wanted: the two symbiotes falling to the punch and destroying everything, complete with a lot of claws, teeth and jokes of questionable taste.
The story is a direct sequel to the first feature and brings the symbiote living with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) in a somewhat troubled relationship. And it is in the midst of one of these back and forth between the couple that Venom ends up crossing his path with the serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), who becomes the villain Carnage. Completely mad and violent, he will now wreak havoc across the city and only Venom can stop him.

2. Spider-Man in the Spider-Verse
Of all these films, we can safely say that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is largely responsible for the mess in the multiverse that we will see in No Return Home. That’s because the animation that put several versions of the hero side by side worked so well and was so successful that it was obvious that they were going to reproduce the formula in the MCU.
The story here is quite simple: Miles Morales is bitten by a radioactive spider and develops Spider-Man’s powers and, from there, he will have to work together with an already veteran and tired Peter Parker, in addition to other versions coming from other realities—including a pig—to prevent the end of the world. And it’s all beautifully packaged in sharp humor, an amazing soundtrack, and an innovative animation style.

1. A Quiet Place 2
The sequel to the excellent A Quiet Place was one of the films most affected by the covid-19 pandemic and, therefore, almost no one was able to see it in the cinema – precisely because of this, the expectation for its debut on streaming is very high. Interestingly, even though that hasn’t happened, interest in A Quiet Place 2 remains high.
The plot here continues the events of the first film, showing the Abbott family having to leave their shelter and venture into this post-apocalyptic world where the smallest of noises can represent their death. The problem is that they will discover that these monsters are not the only problem they will have to face.
