Dark Phoenix 《X战警:黑凤凰》

Dark Phoenix is the 12th film in the X-Men franchise, if you count the Wolverine and Deadpool spin-offs, but it’s the first to have a female central character: an X-Woman rather than an X-Man. Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) stars as Jean Grey, a mutant whose psychic powers are supercharged when a space rescue mission goes wrong. She’s joined by Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and the other regulars, and Jessica Chastain plays an alien who tries to lead Jean astray.


supercharge['suːpətʃɑːdʒ]: vt. 使…超负荷

astray[ə'stre]: adj. 离开正道的


Late Night《深夜秀》

Mindy Kaling, creator of The Mindy Project, writes and co-stars in this comedy about the US’s only female late-night talk show host, Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson), a boss from hell with an attitude and a silver hairdo to match Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada. To save her show from cancellation, Katherine hires an inexperienced fan (Kaling) who advises her that she is “a little old and a little white”.



Men In Black: International 《黑衣人:全球追缉》

Seven years on from Men In Black 3, the sci-fi comedy franchise returns, but Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones aren’t returning with it. Instead, the trademark suits and shades have been handed down to Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who are currently better known as Thor and Valkyrie from The Avengers. Thompson plays Agent M, a newly recruited alien hunter who meets Hemsworth’s Bond-like Agent H in the agency’s London office. The director of Men In Black: International, F Gary Gray, made the most entertaining of the Fast and the Furious films, 2017’s The Fate of the Furious, which has to be a good sign.



Toy Story 4《玩具总动员4》

Does one of cinema’s all-time great trilogies really need a part four? Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, Woody and Buzz Lightyear respectively, promise that the ending of Toy Story 4 is even more heart-wrenching than the ending of Toy Story 3 – although, unless it involves the lingering deaths of all of the major characters, it is hard to see how that could be possible. At any rate, Disney Pixar’s cartoon sees the return of Bo Peep (Annie Potts), and the arrival of Forky (Tony Hale), a plastic spork who suffers an existential crisis when he is made into a toy. Also in the toy box: Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves), an Evel Knievel-style motorcyclist figure, and the villainous Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks), a doll who has been stuck in an antique shop for 60 years.


heart-wrenching: 令人心痛的

spork[spɔ:k]: n. 叉勺


Yesterday 《昨天》

Imagine there were no Lennon and McCartney songs. It’s easy if you try. It was easy for Richard ‘Love Actually’ Curtis, anyway, who scripted this high-concept romantic comedy directed by Danny ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ Boyle. Himesh Patel stars as Jack Malik, an aspiring singer-songwriter who has no fans except his loyal best friend Ellie (Lily James). That all changes when a cosmic storm dents the space-time continuum, leaving Jack in a world where The Beatles never existed, but where he can still remember all of their songs. All he has to do is claim those songs as his own and megastardom beckons. HeyUGuys hails Yesterday as “utterly joyous and smile-inducing throughout. It’s a glorious celebration of the intoxicating beauty of music, human connection and the beautiful British summertime.”


high-concept: 高概念的,高概念电影指具有视觉形象的吸引力、充分的市场商机、简单扼要的情节主轴与剧情铺陈以求大多数观众的理解与接受的电影。高概念电影必须由著名导演执导或明星主演,甚至两者兼备。
