中国大陆上映日期: 2018-11-02(周五)

In the running for the worst movie of the year, this CGI “thriller” if we can call it that, received so many poor reviews back in March when it first came out. If you like disasters and fake graphics, this one’s definitely for you.

The gist: thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities. In another word, boring. The cat one looks heaps better.

To all the naysayers who thought this wouldn’t come to China, eat your words! Although it’ll be heavily censored, it still might be worth a gander on the big screen.

When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego “Venom” to save his life. Although this film isn’t integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s totally the same world. And although the reviews for the film are bad, we’re still gonna see it. Just don’t read the reviews.

Note: this one is in Japanese with Chinese subtitles

Hate to break it to ya, but this is the 22nd in a long series of Detective Conan animé flicks. And this particular one isn’t a great entry point. At least Amuro shows up.

In it, Detective Conan investigates an explosion that occurs on the opening day of a large Tokyo resort and convention center. Of course, mystery does feature in the film, as Conan still needs to figure out the true culprit behind it.

一场大规模的恐怖袭击,一个牵扯无数内幕的神秘组织,这个关乎整个东京的可怕计划即将拉开帷幕…首脑云集的东京峰会举办在即,会场突然发生超大规模的爆炸事件,不仅在现场发现行踪诡异的安室透,毛利小五郎更是惨遭陷害。面对最危险任务,最烧脑的推理,最艰难的博弈,柯南能否在迷雾中寻找到唯一的真相。

Another same-week release for China! Six years after the events of Wreck-It Ralph, Ralph and Vanellope, now friends, discover a wifi router in their arcade, leading them into a new adventure.

And if you look closer at the Chinese poster for this film, you can’t help but laugh. Oh, the irony! Some of those “internet” logos are mysteriously blocked here, but a movie about them still happens to sneak in… we assume those parts will be blurred out or renamed, though. On principle.

Obviously, the most anticipated part of this will be seeing all the Disney princesses (and voices) together in the same scene. We literally can’t wait~

中国大陆上映日期: 2018-11-30(周五)

No idea how this one will do in Mainland China, but we assume, with all of the buzz and great reviews around the world, it’s gonna do pretty well. For best experience, watch with a theater full of Crazy [Middle Class] Asians.

The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick’s (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend’s wedding.

Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he’s perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.

纽约土生土长的朱丽秋(吴恬敏 饰)陪拍拖已久的男友杨力(亨利·戈尔丁 饰)回到新加坡参加死党婚礼。丽秋既为首次到亚洲旅行感到兴奋,同时亦因为要拜访杨力的家人而紧张。她在毫无准备的情况下得悉男友一直没有透露的身世……

原来杨力不仅是新加坡首富的后人,亦是城中瞩目的“钻石王老 五”。身为女友的丽秋腹背受敌,不单只受到名媛的妒忌,还要面对杨力挑剔的母亲(杨紫琼 饰)阻拦。这一切都证明金钱虽然买不到爱情,却足以令事情变得非常复杂。
