“#1 resource for the complete list of non-Chinese movies coming to mainland China every month”

Having long surpassed the allowed “34 foreign films” per year for 2017, we have to wonder what Beijing & Hollywood are up to these days… Happy Childrens Day to us?

Yes, EIGHT more movies are headed our way this month with all of them being released on Fridays. (Weekend sales must finally be catching on!) And some of them being released the same day as the US.

**Remember, all movies are subject to change, so if you’re planning a romantic candle-lit evening, it’s always smart to double-check ahead of time. TIC.

In June, we’ve got quite the mix: a female superhero, male explorers, co-ed scientists, ancient mummies, cartoon cars, giant alien robots, adopted Indians, and spies.

Vote for which one you’re most excited to see at the end of the article… Here’s how you voted last month:

The Indian hit, Dangal, was the surprise winner at the Chinese box office in May 2017, followed closely by Guardians 2 and Pirates, obviously.

We thought Dangal was pretty much just a cookie cutter underdog sports film, though, but must have been fresh and meaningful to the Chinese audience. And it had Aamir Khan.

Are you ready for the movies coming in June!?

Wonder Woman
shén qí nǚ xiá

Director: Patty Jenkins
Actors: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright
China Release Date: Friday, June 2, 2017

导演: 派蒂·杰金斯
主演: 盖尔·加朵 / 克里斯·派恩 / 罗宾·怀特 / 大卫·休里斯 / 埃琳纳·安娜亚
中国大陆上映日期: 2017-6-02(周五)

As we’ve written previously, everyone seems to be pretty stoked for this next superhero flick. And some critics are spouting it as one of the best ever. That’s probably just the execs at DC. She was the best part of B-man v. Supes, though.

Here’s the gist: Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

We’ll believe it when we see it. Don’t let us down, Gal.

亚马逊公主戴安娜·普林斯(盖尔·加朵 Gal Gadot 饰),经过在家乡天堂岛的训练,取得上帝赐予的武器 与装备,化身神奇女侠,与空军上尉史蒂夫·特雷弗(克里斯·派恩 Chris Pine 饰)一同来到人类世界,一起捍卫和平、拯救世界,在一战期间上演了震撼人心的史诗传奇。

The Lost City of Z
mí shī “z” chéng

Director: James Gray
Actors: Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller
China Release Date: Friday, June 2, 2017

主演: 查理·汉纳姆 / 西耶娜·米勒 / 罗伯特·帕丁森 / 汤姆·霍兰德 / 安古斯·麦克菲登
中国大陆上映日期: 2017-6-02(周五)

Who are we kidding, you probably already torrented this one months ago… but is it worth it to see in the cinemas? Probably only if you’re a RobPatt fangirl.

For those who haven’t yet seen it: it’s a true-life drama, centering on British explorer Col. Percival Fawcett, who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s.

Yes, the ending is that predictable, but we won’t give it away.

英国探险家珀西·福斯特(查理·汉纳姆 Charlie Hunnam 饰)深入神秘的南美洲亚马逊丛林探险,竟发现未知的文明生活迹象,他回到英国公开这个意义深远的重大发现,却被当成笑话嘲弄,没有人愿意相信他的话。在爱妻尼娜(西耶娜·米勒 Sienna Miller 饰)无怨无悔的支持下,福斯特决心带领儿子杰克(汤姆·霍兰德 Tom Holland 饰)重返亚马逊丛林,寻找古文明存在的证据,一行人却离奇消失,从此再无任何音讯,成为史上最神秘又悬疑的失踪事件。

The Mummy
xīn mù nǎi yī

Director: Alex Kurtzman
Actors: Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Russell Crowe
China Release Date: Friday, June 9, 2017

导演: 艾里克斯·库兹曼
主演: 汤姆·克鲁斯 / 索菲亚·波多拉 / 罗素·克劳 / 安娜贝拉·沃丽丝 / 杰克·约翰逊
中国大陆上映日期: 2017-6-09(周五)

An ancient princess is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.

Oh my word, this one looks bad.

Another case of a remake that didn’t need to be remade. We were perfectly happy with the Brendan Fraser version from the late 90s. And if he doesn’t show up in some sort of lame cameo, we will boycott this film for the rest of time.

And Tom Cruise? Don’t even get us started. Let’s hope the mummy is attractive, at least.


本片由动作巨星汤姆·克鲁斯主演。凭借《王牌特工》中的 “刀锋女”一角大热的新锐女星索菲亚·宝特拉饰演有巨大毁灭力量的木乃伊公主阿玛内特,而好莱坞著名硬汉男星罗素·克劳 也有精彩表现。

导演艾里克斯·库兹曼为好莱坞资深制片人,作品包括《惊天魔盗团》、 《星际迷航:暗黑无界》、《碟中谍3》等。

据悉,影片将于近日发布全球首支官方预告片,届时将有更多精彩场景呈献,并将揭晓更多神秘剧情。该片北美预计2017年6月9 日上映。

Alien: Covenant
yì xíng:qì yuē

Director: Ridley Scott
Actors: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup
China Release Date: Friday, June 16, 2017

导演: 雷德利·斯科特
主演: 迈克尔·法斯宾德 / 凯瑟琳·沃特斯顿 / 比利·克鲁德普 / 丹尼·麦克布耐德 / 德米安·比齐尔
中国大陆上映日期: 2017-6-16(周五)

The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, discover an uncharted paradise with a threat beyond their imagination, and must attempt a harrowing escape.

Mildy interesting?

Probably looks good for sci-fi fans or fans of the original Alien trilogy. But in our opinion, these continuing stories just aren’t the same. We’ll still go see it, anyways.

Leave it to Pixar to save us from remakes and reboots. If we learned anything from Toy Story 3, they really know how to shine with their third parts of stories. We can’t wait!

Behind Wonder Woman, this is the must-see of the month.

Expect to see Lightning McQueen’s return as he sets out to prove to a new generation of racers that he’s still the best race car in the world.

“For one world to live, the other must die.”

All hail Michael Bay, the master of disaster movies. But can he strike gold with another Transformers flick? (Can you believe it was already 3 years since the last one!? Seems like yesterday.)

Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.

Our only question is how will they pander to China this time? 😂

《变形金刚5:最后的骑士》是派拉蒙影业、孩之宝联合制作的一部机器人科幻电影,由迈克尔·贝导演,阿齐瓦·高斯曼、Matt Holloway、Arthur Marcum、Ken Nolan编剧,马克·沃尔伯格、乔什·杜哈明、史坦利·图齐、安东尼·霍普金斯、伊莎贝拉·莫奈、劳拉·哈德克、约翰·特托罗等主演。

We are so happy to announce that this Oscar-nominated tearjerker is making it’s way to mainland China. Adoption is a rather taboo topic and maybe this movie can help sway public opinion a bit.

Plot: A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.

Bring tissues.

We can neither confirm nor deny that this movie will show up in theaters or not this month, as the schedule is pretty vague. But we’re telling you about it anyways! Keep your eyes peeled.

Plot: A CIA interrogator is lured into a ruse that puts London at risk of a biological attack.

Actually, maybe we should just download this one…
