No Time to Die 《007:无暇赴死》

It may have been hampered by injuries, accidents and even the withdrawal of its original director, Danny Boyle, but Daniel Craig’s final Bond movie could be among his best. For one thing, Boyle’s frantic, fidgety style never seemed right for 007, whereas the director who replaced him, Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective), specialises in muscular action sequences and gritty international locations. For another thing, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) has spiced up the script. The story is that Bond has retired with his girlfriend (Léa Seydoux), leaving a new double-0 agent (Lashana Lynch) to save the world in his absence. But his buddy Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) persuades him to fight the evil Safin (Rami Malek). Oh – and Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) is up to no good, too.


Released on 2 April in the UK, 10 April in the US.






Artemis Fowl 《阿特米斯的奇幻历险》

When he’s not directing or acting in Shakespeare, Kenneth Branagh shows remarkable flair for making commercial Disney films, from Thor to Cinderella. Here he takes on a fantasy-adventure based on the first in Eoin Colfer’s huge, bestselling series of children’s books. The hero, Artemis Fowl (Ferdia Shaw), is a 12-year-old genius and criminal mastermind who battles fairies while searching for his father. Laden with special effects, the spectacle includes underground worlds, mythical creatures and even Dame Judi Dench as a police chief, Commander Root.


Released on 28 May in Australia, 29 May in the UK, Poland and the US.






Wonder Woman 1984 《神奇女侠2》

Superhero blockbusters are so last decade. In 2020, it’s the superheroines’ time to shine. Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is finally getting her own film, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, the only decent thing about the shambolic Suicide Squad, returns with Birds of Prey. But the year’s biggest and brightest-looking superheroine movie will probably be Wonder Woman 1984, a sequel to Patty Jenkins’ 2017 smash. Decades after the events of the first film, the warrior princess (Gal Gadot) goes into battle against Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah and Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord.


Released on 7 June in the US and UK.


shambolic[ʃæmˈbɑːlɪk]: adj. 大混乱的;无组织的






Soul is another of the boldly imaginative cartoons that you wouldn’t get from any US animation studio except Pixar. More specifically, it’s the kind of cartoon you only get from Pete Docter, whose previous films – Monsters Inc, Up and Inside Out – have all pondered human behaviour and the meaning of life. His latest cartoon is about souls developing their interests and talents in an another dimension before they fuse with bodies in the physical world.


Released on 19 June in the UK and US.






Top Gun: Maverick 《壮志凌云2:独行侠》

Tom Cruise puts his Aviator shades back on for a high-flying sequel to the 1986 hit. Thirty-four years on, his US Navy pilot character is still calling himself ‘Maverick’, and he still hasn’t made it past the rank of Captain. But never mind the plot. If the last film is anything to go by, this one will be all about the thrill of seeing jet planes tearing through the sky at teeth-rattling speeds. Top Gun: Maverick isn’t the only belated new addition to a 1980s franchise, either. Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Bill & Ted Face the Music are also due in 2020.


Released on 26 June in the US, 17 July in the UK.


belated[bɪˈleɪtɪd]: adj. 迟来的;误期的
