Yes, the same Christopher Nolan who produced the best Batman, the best Dream thieves, and the best bad Damon.

This time he’s going big; he has allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire, and France, surrounded by the German army and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II. Local audiences should love this one.

Our only hope is that it’s not censored too much. A must-see either way.

故事改编自著名的二战军事事件“敦刻尔克大撤退”。二战初期,40万英法盟军被敌军围困于敦刻尔克的海滩之上,面对敌军步步逼近的绝境,形势万分危急。英国政府和海军发动大批船员,动员人民起来营救军队。

英国士兵汤米(菲昂·怀特海德 Fionn Whitehead 饰)在逃离海滩的过程中相继结识吉布森与亚历克斯,同时民用船主道森先生(马克·里朗斯 Mark Rylance 饰)与儿子彼得、17岁少年乔治也离开英国,去往敦刻尔克拯救士兵。三人陆续搭救了海军(基里安·墨菲 Cillian Murphy 饰)、飞行员柯林斯及汤米一行人,而战斗机飞行员法瑞尔(汤姆·哈迪 Tom Hardy 饰)则在被敌人双面夹击的艰难情形下顽强战斗。

影片的故事从陆、海、空三个角度讲述,在德国军队的包围下,每个人不得不为自己的命运背水一战,才有可能活着回家。

Seems complicated. We like it! Note: Most likely in Spanish because it’s from Spain. And the trailer is in Spanish.

Another anime film for September! You’ve probably heard of this one even if you don’t like anime. No? Here’s a snippet:

In 2026, a new machine called the Augma is developed to compete against the NerveGear and its successor, the Amusphere. A next-gen wearable device, the Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function like its predecessors.

Instead, it uses Augmented Reality (AR) to get players into the game. It is safe, user-friendly and lets users play while they are conscious, making it an instant hit on the market. The most popular game on the system is “Ordinal Scale” (aka: OS), an ARMMORPG developed exclusively for the Augma.

Asuna and the gang have already been playing OS for a while, and soon Kirito decides to join them. However, they’re about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn’t all fun and games. Dun dun dun…

2026年,天才编程者茅场晶彦所开发的世界最早的完全潜行专用装备设备《NERvGear》。 这个革命性的机器给VR(假想现实)世界带来了无限的可能性。那之后经过了4年。。。。。

《NERvGear》的后继品VR机为了对抗《AmuSphere》(第二代民用完全潜行机),发售了一个次世代的可穿戴设备《Augma》 替换了完全潜行机能,是一个对AR(增强现实)功能进行了最大限度扩大的最先进机种。

由于《Augma》在觉醒状态下也可以安全和便利地使用,因此一瞬间便在玩家当中传开了。 这个杀手级内容,被叫做《Ordinal Scale序列之争(OS)》,是《Augma》专用的ARMMO RPG。

亚斯娜和伙伴们会玩的这个游戏,桐人也准备参战了。。。。

Barely a foreign movie because it’s definitely made in China, we’re only including it because it has Orlando Bloom himself.
