7 Foreign Films Come to China | May 2017 (中英双语)

Posted on Posted in American, Culture, English, Hollywood, Movies, Pop Culture

Happy May Day to us! We aren’t exaggerating when we say this might be the biggest month for foreign movies in Chinese cinematic history. Last month, with the Fate of the Furious, we saw China’s biggest opening weekend to date.

But this month, with such a huge list of so-called blockbusters, we should see that record broken once again. Guardians or Pirates, anyone?

And, oddly for China, every single one happens to be released on a Friday, so a good way to waste your weekends.

A large percentage seem to be getting the same day and date release with the USA, too. Now if they’d only do that for Star Wars.

A sports biopic from India featuring the real-life character of Mahavir Singh Phogat. He wasn’t able to win the championship on his own, so he hoped his sons would someday carry on his legacy.

But does he have any sons? Nope. Four daughters. The ol’ life switcheroo giving “lemons,” etc. Expect lots of Bollywood flare with this one!

We love Aamir Khan, so why wouldn’t he make a good father of female wrestlers?

We honestly don’t know why this is coming to China, but might have something to do with the popularity of the wonderful “3 Idiots” flick that resonated with millions of Chinese students. Or Chinese producers.

Note: This film is in Hindi, with minimal English dialogue… If you don’t speak Hindi, how fast can you read Chinese subtitles? 😜  Might need to just download this one with English subtitles.

马哈维亚·辛格·珀尕(阿米尔·汗饰)曾是印度国家摔跤冠军,因生活所迫放弃摔跤。他希望让儿子可以帮他完成梦想——赢得世界级金牌。结果生了四个女儿本以为梦想就此破碎的辛格却意外发现女儿身上的惊人天赋,看到冠军希望的他决定不能让女儿的天赋浪费,像其他女孩一样只能洗衣做饭过一生,再三考虑之后,与妻子约定一年时间按照摔跤手的标准训练两个女儿:换掉裙子 、剪掉了长发,让她们练习摔跤,并赢得一个又一个冠军,最终赢来了成为榜样激励千千万万女性的机会……

We were JUST thinking it was about time for a King Arhur remake! And here it is.

The young Arthur (Hunnam) runs the back passages of Londinium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind. He joins the rebellion and a shadowy young woman named Guinevere.

He must learn to understand the magic weapon, deal with his demons, and unite the people to defeat the dictator Vortigern, the man who murdered his parents and stole his crown to become king.

Those battle scenes look LOTR-ish… should we raise our expectations? No.

本片改编自亚瑟王圣剑的传说,剧情颠覆传统,一路探索亚瑟从市井到王座的征途。亚瑟的父亲在他小时候就惨遭杀害,亚瑟的叔叔伏提庚(裘德·洛 Jude Law 饰)篡取王位,剥夺了亚瑟(查理·汉纳姆 Charlie Hunnam 饰)的天赐之权。他浑然不知自己的身世,在城市的穷街陋巷里摸爬滚打着长大,但当他拔出石中剑,他的人生就彻底地天翻地覆了,亚瑟不得不接受自己真正的使命。

“Life is incredibly resilient.”

Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet.

The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism – the first example of life beyond Earth. But.. things aren’t always what they seem.

As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.

Yawn. At least it’s not a remake?

首位连续出演两部《谍中谍》的女星蕾贝卡·弗格森(Rebecca Ferguson)最近加盟一部Skydance公司制作的原创科幻电影《生命》(Life),该片将由《安全屋》(Safe House)导演丹尼尔·埃斯皮诺萨(Daniel Espinosa)执导。

《生命》讲述的是国际空间站宇航员在对一份从火星取回的样本检测后,发现其中显现出生命迹象,而且是一种比人类预料的智慧的多的生命。目前还没有更进一步的细节,不清楚这部科幻片有无恐怖、惊悚成分。

During the Cold War, an organization called “Patriot” created a super-hero squad, which includes members of multiple soviet republics. For years, the heroes had to hide their identities, but in hard times they must show themselves again.

Is this just a Russian version of Marvel? Maybe. Looks promising.

BTW, the China release appears to be in Russian, so best to check the language before buying tickets. Because of the trailer, it’s possible it might be in English, but it’s unlikely.

一直从事兵器研究的邪恶的克拉托夫教授欲用生物兵器达成自己的野心,在俄罗斯境内的各大城市制造了一系列大规模爆炸恐怖袭击。为了消灭邪恶势力,拯救面临生物兵器毁灭的国家,俄罗斯国防部派出了冷战时期创建的名为“爱国者”的超级英雄团队,各个英雄异于常人,身怀特技,与号称统 治世界的邪恶教授展开了一场殊死较量。

Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him.

Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.

The other must-see of the month, this probably won’t be the last time we see Johnny Depp in the pirate costume. Or will it?

幸存下来的巴博萨在女巫Haifaa Meni(格什菲·法拉哈尼 Golshifteh Farahani 饰)口中得知了萨拉查的真实目的:为寻找他的宿敌杰克船长(约翰尼·德普 Johnny Depp 饰),遂重返皇家海军,展开了复仇旅程。 而在父亲蒂格船长(基思·理查兹 Keith Richards 饰)指引下,杰克也将乘着失而复得的黑珍珠号再次扬帆起航,率领聪明美丽的天文学家卡琳娜·史密斯(卡雅·斯考达里奥 Kaya Scodelario 饰)以及与威尔·特纳有着神秘联系的年轻皇家海军亨利(布兰顿·思怀兹 Brenton Thwaites 饰),一起去寻找唯一有可能击败萨拉查的宝物:传说中海神波塞冬的三叉戟。 加勒比的碧海之上将会燃起前所未见的硝烟。
