A Simple Favor 《一个小忙》

主演:布蕾克·莱弗利 / 琳达·卡德里尼 / 安娜·肯德里克 / 鲁伯特·弗兰德 / 埃里克·约翰逊

Director Paul Feig has been one of the most successful directors of comedy of the past decade – with Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy and Ghostbusters, he not only delivered massive laughs but also revealed the huge, and almost always neglected, audience for raunchy, sometimes gory, female-driven comedies. Now he’s leaving comedy behind to direct what appears to be a thriller in the vein of Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. A Simple Favor is based on the 2017 Darcey Bell novel of the same name, and stars Anna Kendrick as a woman who becomes obsessed with a stylish acquaintance played by Blake Lively, who may hold some dark and deadly secrets – and then she vanishes. Could her handsome husband – Crazy Rich Asians star and BBC World News’ Travel Show host Henry Golding – have done her in? Twists and turns lay ahead. Released September 13 in Hong Kong and Singapore, September 14 in Romania, Taiwan of China and the US and September 20 in Australia and the UK (Credit: Lionsgate)



Bel Canto《美声》

主演:朱丽安·摩尔 / 克里斯多弗·兰伯特 / 渡边谦 / 奥莱克·克鲁帕 / 塞巴斯蒂安·科赫

Julianne Moore stars as an opera singer who performs at a swanky soiree hosted by a wealthy businessman (Ken Watanabe) in a Latin American country currently embroiled in a civil war. Rebels storm the location of the party and take everyone hostage. And it turns out that the government may want a fortissimo solution: they might storm in and kill everyone, hostages included, just to score a PR victory against the rebels. Somehow, though, Julianne Moore has to resolve this situation through the power of her voice. Released September 13 in Russia and September 14 in the US (Credit: Screen Media Films)



Destination Wedding《终点的婚礼》

主演:基努·里维斯 / 薇诺娜·瑞德

One of the most gratifying developments in recent cinema history has been the mutual mid-career renaissances of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves. Both look as good as they ever have and their talents have matured significantly. Now we get to see them together in Destination Wedding, a romantic comedy about two singles – Ryder and Reeves – sorely missing having a plus-one in their life, who are invited to a friend’s wedding. Ryder’s character is the ex-girlfriend of the groom, and she’s still pining. Reeves appears to have a case of acute melancholia – and he’s sporting his hair from the John Wick movies, so bloodshed may be at hand. (Or at least jokes that kill.) The two of them hate each other and curse the connubial fates that threw them together to endure a spectacle of matrimonial bliss – surely a post-wedding hook-up is in order? Released September 6 in Greece and Hungary, September 7 in Estonia, September 17 in Lithuania and September 20 in Singapore (Credit: Regatta)



The Miseducation of Cameron Post《卡梅伦的错误教育》

主演:科洛·莫瑞兹 / 萨莎·莱恩 / 詹妮弗·艾莉 / 小约翰·加拉赫 / 福勒斯特·古德勒克

So-called “conversion therapy” centres for LGBT youth are often shunned – though not rendered extinct – today, but in the 1990s they were still a thriving business. In the US especially, Evangelical Christians would send their LGBT children to camps and retreats offering pseudo-scientific ‘medical’ treatments to turn gay kids straight. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for US Drama at the Sundance Film Festival in January, The Miseducation of Cameron Post examines the experience of teenagers forced to attend one such program, led by a fiercely homophobic conversion-therapy proponent played by Jennifer Ehle. Chloë Grace Moretz plays Cameron Post, a teen who’s strongly considering running away from the clinic – and, presumably, from her family as well. Released September 7 in the UK and Ireland (Credit: FilmRise)



Smallfoot 《雪怪大冒险》

配音演员:赞达亚 / 查宁·塔图姆 / 丹尼·德维托 / 吉娜·罗德里格兹 / 詹姆斯·柯登

Warner Bros was once a studio considered legendary for its output of cartoon shorts featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Elmer Fudd – now they barely produce any animation at all. But their few theatrically-released animations the past few years have been stellar, notably The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. Other than 2016’s already-forgotten Storks and the recent superhero parody Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, Smallfoot is the first non-Lego animation released by Warner Bros in 15 years. It humourously dramatizes the reverse of an urban legend: that “bigfoot,” a furry creature of icy mountains and coniferous forests – in the Himalayas known as a yeti – exists and has even been documented on film (always in blurry, obviously fake photographs). Smallfoot tells the story of a yeti (Channing Tatum) who is trying to prove to his fellow bigfeet that humans, are smallfeet, and exist – they think humans are myths. Released September 20 in Australia, September 27 in Brazil, Hong Kong and Singapore and September 28 in Turkey, South Africa and the US (Credit: Warner Bros Pictures)
