The weekend has come! And nothing better than a good selection of films to pass the time. Globo prepared a special program for Saturday (13) and Sunday (14). With a lot of comedy, action and fun, the station promises to please the viewer on rest days.
The marathon begins with the Saturday Session, at 2:10 pm, which shows the classic The Máskara (1994). Stanley Ipkiss (Jim Carrey) is a decent guy who works at a bank, but is socially awkward and not very successful with women.
After one of the worst days of his life, he finds the strange mask of Loki, a Scandinavian god, at sea. When the boy puts the object on his face, it becomes The Maskara.
The green-faced being has superhuman speed, an unconventional humor and has the courage to do the most risky and fun things Stanley fears, including flirting with Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz), the beautiful and sensual singer who performs at the disco.
Gangster Dorian Tyrrell (Peter Greene), who is dating Tina, struggles to destroy the Maskara and seize the mask to use his powers for evil.
Corujão brings, at 2h25, the national comedy Podecrer! (2007). The story takes place in Rio de Janeiro, in 1981. A group of friends is in the last year of high school. Carol (Maria Flor) ends up meeting Melissa (Fernanda Paes Leme) and Silvinha (Liliana Castro), who introduce her to members of a rock band and to the patricinhas Ana Cláudia (Erika Mader) and Duda (Júlia Gorman).
Directed by Arthur Fontes and with a script inspired by the book of the same name by Marcelo Dantas, the film refers to classic series like Incredible Years (1988-1993) and brings the group dealing with the farewell of adolescence and the dilemmas of adult life.
Following, the audience follows the dramatic comedy Os Descendentes (2011), at 3h55. The film depicts the story of Matt King (George Clooney), a resident of Hawaii. His wife, Elizabeth (Patricia Hastie), suffers a boating accident and falls into a coma. Now, he is responsible for an easy task: looking after his daughters Scottie (Amara Miller) and Alexandra (Shailene Woodley), who studies and lives on another island in the archipelago.
Upon being told that Elizabeth will not survive, the head of the family decides to bring the first child back home, so that the daughter can help him tell the news to friends and family. Difficult and out of character, Alexandra doesn’t think twice about revealing that her mother betrayed her father. Stunned by the information, Matt begins a search to find out who his wife’s lover was and whether she really loved him.
Then, at 5:15 am, the adventures of Taina come into play: The Origin (2013). The Amazon rainforest is invaded by pirates of biodiversity, and the young Indian Maya (Mayara Bentes) ends up becoming a victim of the bandits, leaving baby Tainá orphaned.
The child is saved by the old and lonely shaman Tigê (Gracindo Jr.), who takes care of him and only returns him to his people five years later, when the new leader who defends nature will be chosen.
As a girl, Tainá (Wiranú Tembé) is prevented from presenting herself, but due to her mother’s heritage, the last of the warriors, and with the support of the smart girl from the city Laurinha (Beatriz Noskoski) and the nerdy Gobi (Igor Ozzy), the little Indian decides to face evildoers, unraveling the mystery of her own origin.
