再续经典的《玩具总动员4》、“三傻”索菲·特纳饰演的女X战警、“雷神”饰演的新黑衣人、艾玛·汤姆森饰演的深夜秀女魔头……精彩纷呈的六月电影等你来看!

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.

如果把金刚狼和死侍系列片也算在内,《黑凤凰》是《X战警》系列的第12部电影,但这是第一部以女性为主角的《X战警》电影:女X战警而非男X战警。参演过《权力的游戏》的索菲·特纳饰演突变异种人琴·格雷,由于在执行一次太空援救任务时出了问题,琴的超自然力量被极大增强,难以控制。该片的演员阵容还包括詹妮弗·劳伦斯、詹姆斯·麦卡沃伊、迈克尔·法斯宾德和其他常驻变种人演员。杰西卡·查斯坦饰演一个试图让琴走上邪路的外星人。

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”.

艾玛·汤普森在《深夜秀》中饰演美国唯一一位深夜脱口秀女主播凯瑟琳·纽伯里(虚构人物),和《穿普拉达的女王》中的米兰达·普瑞斯特利一样,也是一个说一不二的银发女魔头老板。《明迪烦事多》的开创者敏迪·卡灵在这部喜剧电影中身兼编剧和演员。为了让自己的深夜秀免于被取消的命运,凯瑟琳雇佣了一位没有经验的粉丝(卡灵饰演),这位粉丝提出建议说,凯瑟琳“有点老,肤色也有点太白了”。

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.

《黑衣人3》上映七年后,这个科幻喜剧片系列又再度回归荧幕,不过威尔·史密斯和汤米·李·琼斯不再继续出演。接手黑衣人标志性服装和墨镜的将是克里斯·海姆斯沃斯和泰莎·汤普森,这俩人因饰演《复仇者联盟》中的雷神和女武神而为人所熟知。汤普森饰演新上岗的外星人猎手M特工,她在联邦调查局的伦敦办事处遇到了海姆斯沃斯饰演的邦德风格的H特工。《黑衣人:全球追缉》的导演F·加里·格雷曾执导过《速度与激情》系列中最好看的《宿命》(2017年),所以这部新片应该也还不错。

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.

有史以来最伟大的电影三部曲还需要拍第四部吗?新片的胡迪和巴斯光年的配音者汤姆·汉克斯和蒂姆·艾伦承诺这一部的结局比第三部的结局还要令人心碎。不过除非所有的主角都在新片中濒临死亡绝境,否则难以想象这要如何实现。无论如何,至少在这部迪士尼皮克斯动画片中,我们将见到牧羊女(安妮·波茨配音)的回归和叉奇(托尼·海尔配音)的上场。叉奇是一个被改造成玩具的塑料叉勺,正在遭受存在感危机。同样出现在玩具盒里的还有卡布公爵(基努·里维斯配音)——一个埃维尔·克尼维尔风格的摩托车手,以及反派盖比盖比(克里斯蒂娜·亨德里克斯配音)——一个在古董店里滞留了60年的娃娃。

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.”

想象一下,这个世界上没有列侬和麦卡特尼的歌,这样你在歌坛上崭露头角会不会更容易?至少对于《真爱至上》的导演理查德·柯蒂斯来说是如此。这部高概念浪漫喜剧由柯蒂斯担任编剧,丹尼·博伊尔担任导演,博伊尔曾执导过《贫民窟的百万富翁》。希米什·帕特尔饰演胸怀抱负的创作型歌手杰克·马利克,他的粉丝只有他忠诚的好友艾丽(莉莉·詹姆斯饰演)一个人。一场宇宙风暴让时空连续体产生了凹痕,于是一切都改变了。杰克置身于一个甲壳虫乐队从未存在过的世界,而杰克却能记得甲壳虫所有的歌曲。他只需将这些歌曲都占为己有,就可以成为超级巨星。HeyUGuys网站称赞这部电影“从头到尾都非常欢乐。这是一首颂扬令人陶醉的音乐之美、人情纽带和英国夏日美景的赞歌。”

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。
