Unlike TV channels, online cinemas give out premieres one after another even in summer. Two series are already in full swing, and another one is about to begin.

“Heritage”

Fantasy, post-apocalyptic

Director: Alexey Golubev.

There is trouble on earth: children barely live to be 12 years old. Humanity is in danger of extinction. And then the “Heritage” project was launched: scientists shattered children in test tubes, put them to sleep and sent them 100 years ahead. And at the same time they sent themselves. Imagine their surprise when the awakened children organized themselves into a totalitarian society with cruel morals. But there is still a chance to fix everything, of course. Cast: Alexei Serebryakov, Yegor Beroev, Artem Tkachenko, Mikhail Evlanov, Konstantin Kryukov, Olga Makeeva, Katerina Kovalchuk.

The first episodes seemed a little boring, but fans of the genre are likely to be delighted.

Where to watch: Premier from 28 July.

“Poor oligarch”

Comedy

Director: Hayk Asatryan (“Restaurant by Concepts”).

I remember that the coronavirus pandemic has just begun, and our TV series have already piled five series on the topic of the day. And now they are in a hurry to comprehend the current realities.

So, a Russian oligarch who made his fortune in the natural resources trade (Vladimir Sychev) lives in a mansion in England and lounges from morning to evening. Champagne flows like a river. And suddenly – bam! – Western sanctions. Accounts are arrested, even the furniture was taken out of the mansion. How to live now?! Well, at least the faithful butler Adam (Maxim Lagashkin) is nearby …

For a series that was written in a hurry, “The Poor Oligarch” is very personal. The humor is mostly of an average level (although there are some worthy jokes), but Sychev and Lagashkin sang perfectly in a duet and squeeze the maximum possible out of the script.

Where to watch: Premier from 26 July.

“Close Gestalt”

Mysticism, drama

Director: Maxim Pezhemsky (“Anna Nikolaevna Project”).

Car dealership manager Fedor Yartsev (Alexander Ilyin Jr.) falls from the 20th floor, but remains alive without getting a scratch. But now he is haunted by the ghosts of long-dead people. This, for example, is a mother-in-law, a school fizruk, a bandit from the 90s. Yartsev is forced to help all of them finally leave for another world – otherwise they will not be left behind. At the same time, he has to deal with chronic pain points in his mind (that is, close those same gestalts) and build relationships with his father, whom he never knew. Moreover, the father appears in the body of a young man (Denis Vlasenko). The series, which explores the conflict between fathers and children and the problem of self-acceptance, promises to be one of the most curious premieres of this summer.

Where to watch: Kinopoisk and Okko from 4 August.
