A Star is Born 《一个明星的诞生》

This is now the third remake of David O Selznick’s 1937 romantic drama, following the 1954 musical with Judy Garland and James Mason and the 1976 rock ‘n’ roll version featuring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. This time round, the role of aspiring ingénue goes to pop superstar du jour Lady Gaga, who knocks it out of the park as the aspiring, but shy, singer-songwriter ‘discovered’ by an older, alcoholic country musician (Bradley Cooper). He instantly falls in love with her. With his help her career rises, just as his begins to fade away… It’s a classic showbiz story and this retelling is far better than some scoffers predicted from the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper. His film won a rapturous reception at the 2018 Venice Film Festival and looks set to be a commercial smash. A ‘sing-along’ version is surely inevitable. On general release from October 5.

这是大卫·塞尔兹尼克1937年的爱情电影第三次被翻拍了,第一部翻拍作品是朱迪·嘉兰和詹姆斯·梅森1954年主演的音乐电影,第二部翻拍作品是芭芭拉·史翠珊和克里斯·克里斯托佛森1976年主演的摇滚歌舞片。这一次,在翻拍新作中扮演有志纯真少女的是歌坛巨星Lady Gaga,她精彩演绎的这个胸怀抱负又害羞的创作型歌手被一名比自己年长又嗜酒的乡村歌手(布莱德利·库珀饰)“发现”。这名乡村歌手立刻爱上了她。在他的帮助下,少女的事业蒸蒸日上,但与此同时,乡村歌手的事业开始没落……这是一个经典的娱乐圈故事,这部翻拍作品作为布莱德利·库珀的导演处女作,远远超出了一些嘲笑者的预期。该片在2018威尼斯电影节上获得了一片盛赞,票房大卖应该指日可待。之后肯定还会推出跟唱版。该片将于10月5日在全球同步上映。(资料来源:华纳兄弟/米高梅电影公司)


Beautiful Boy 《漂亮男孩》

Timothée Chalamet (now aged 22) became one of the hottest young things in Hollywood this year when he made Academy Awards history as the third youngest person ever to be nominated for the best actor Oscar. Here he proves his breakout success – as a sexually curious teenager in Call Me by Your Name – wasn’t a blip by challenging his considerable skills still further. Based on the best-selling memoirs by father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy plunges us into the confusion felt by a loving divorced father (Steve Carell) as his college-age son (Chalamet) struggles with potentially fatal drug addiction. Released October 12 in the US, October 25 in Singapore and October 31 in Hong Kong, China (Credit: Amazon Studios)



First Man 《登月第一人》

This space race spectacular reunites the La La Land dream team of director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling – could it be to similar Oscar-worthy effect? Early reviews certainly hint that. Chazelle has given himself a tough challenge, that of making us all experience the wonder and nail-biting life-and-death suspense of Nasa’s first moon landing as if for the very first time. Gosling, of course, is astronaut Neil Armstrong, here a square-jawed, emotionally repressed scientist who dared all to blast off into space leaving his wife (The Crown’s Claire Foy) and children back on Earth. With top-level dramatic acting as well as out-of-this-world special effects, it’s definitely one of those movies it pays to watch on the biggest cinema screen possible. On general release from October 12 (Credit: Daniel McFadden/Universal)



Venom 《毒液:致命守护者》

This month’s superhero blockbuster is the first to come from Sony’s new Marvel Universe. For the non-nerds out there, this marks the start of a new shared universe (adjunct to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, aka MCU) featuring the Marvel characters to which Sony possess the movie rights (Spider-Man being the best-known example). Clear? Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock, an investigative journalist whose career is derailed by his determination to expose the dodgy experimental doings of brilliant scientist Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed). In the course of this, Eddie becomes the host of an alien symbiote that causes him to morph into a drooling, needle-fanged black monster known as ‘Venom’. The effects look terrifying, but a top-quality cast – that also includes Michelle Williams as Eddie’s girlfriend – make them worth braving.

Bad Times at the El Royale 《皇家酒店谋杀案》

Seven shady strangers meet at the equally shady El Royale, a rundown hotel near Lake Tahoe, for one fateful night. What are they hiding? Why are they there? Well, there’s no guessing why we are given this stylishly violent thriller’s stellar ensemble cast. Check out these big-draw names: Jeff Bridges (as a criminal disguised as a priest), Dakota Johnson (as a gun-toting femme fatale), Jon Hamm (as a seedy vacuum cleaner salesman) and Chris Hemsworth (as a shirtless cult leader), not to mention Tony and Grammy-award-winning Cynthia Erivo making her first waves in the movies in a singer role first offered to Beyoncé. Plus keep your eyes peeled for Russell Crowe popping up in an uncredited cameo. On general release from October 12 (Credit: Kimberley French/Twentieth Century Fox)



Burning 《燃烧》

This subtle South Korean romantic mystery drama is based on Barn Burning, a short story by Haruki Murakami, while also acknowledging a debt to William Faulkner’s story of the same name. Jongsu (Ah-in Yoo) is an unassertive delivery driver who works near the DMZ. One day he bumps into – and speedily finds himself in bed with – Haemi (Jong-seo Jeon), a stunning old school friend he doesn’t remember. His head turned, Jongsu agrees to look after Haemi’s cat when she’s on a trip to Africa. However Haemi returns with Ben (Steven Yeun), a handsome stranger she met in Kenya, who reveals an unusual and disturbing hobby. Selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, this latest offering from acclaimed director Lee Chang-Dong is an elusive, slow-burn tale of jealousy, justice and revenge. Released October 11 in the Netherlands, October 18 in Israel and November 9 in the US (Credit: Pine House Film)
