烈日炎炎的八月,最适合去电影院消磨时光啦。本月你将能看到“巨石”强森主演的新一部《速度与激情》、真人版《爱探险的朵拉》、《水形物语》导演的新作,还有凯特·布兰切特主演的畅销书改编电影。

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

《速度与激情:特别行动》



The best thing about the last Fast & Furious film was the bickering banter between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s rival secret agents, Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. Now the follicularly-challenged frenemies have their own spin-off, in which they team up against Brixton Lore (Idris Elba), a villain who is actually a ‘cyber-genetically enhanced international terrorist’. Adding to the fun, Helen Mirren cameos as Shaw’s cockney mum Queenie, Vanessa Kirby is his sister, and the whole thing is directed by David Leitch, whose CV – John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2 – suggests that no one is better at making ridiculously over-the-top action extravaganzas.

上一部《速度与激情》最出彩的部分就是“巨石”强森饰演的卢克·霍布斯和杰森·斯塔森饰演的德卡特·肖互怼的戏份。现在这对亦敌亦友的光头秘密特工又拍了续集,这一次他们联手对抗伊德瑞斯·艾尔巴饰演的反派布里克斯顿·洛尔,这个人是“通过计算机技术进行基因增强的国际恐怖分子”。更有趣的是,海伦·米伦客串了肖来自伦敦东区的母亲奎妮,凡妮莎·柯比饰演肖的妹妹。这部电影由大卫·雷奇执导,他曾导演过《疾速追杀》、《极寒之城》和《死侍2》,没有人比他更擅长把夸张得可笑的动作戏拍成华丽大片。

bicker['bɪkɚ]: v. (为小事)斗嘴

banter['bæntɚ]: n. 无恶意的玩笑

follicularly-challenged: 在毛囊方面受到挑战的,秃头的

frenemy[ˈfrɛnəmi]: n. 友敌,腹黑友

cameo['kæmɪo]: v. 客串演出

cockney['kɑkni]: adj. 伦敦(东区)的

CV[,si: 'vi:]: abbr. 简历(Curriculum Vitae)

over-the-top: 夸张的,过头的

Dora and the Lost City of Gold

《爱探险的朵拉:消失的黄金城》



Now that Indiana Jones is as ancient as the relics he unearths, and it’s game over for the Lara Croft franchise, the time is right for a younger tomb raider, namely Dora the Explorer. In the first live-action film to be adapted from the long-running Nickelodeon cartoon, Dora (Isabela Moner) enrols in an American high school. But when her parents (Michael Peña and Eva Longoria) go missing, she returns to the jungle with her backpack, her knife and Boots the monkey (voiced by Danny Trejo). One of the few Hollywood children’s films to have a Latina heroine, Dora and the Lost City of Gold is directed by James Bobin, who made the two recent Muppets films, so it could be comedy gold.

《夺宝奇兵》已经和印地安纳·琼斯挖出的宝藏一样古老,《古墓丽影》系列也早就成了过去式,现在是时候让更年轻的盗墓者出场了,她就是爱探险的朵拉。这是改编自尼克国际儿童频道的长篇动画《爱探险的朵拉》的首部真人电影,伊莎贝拉·莫奈饰演的朵拉在一所美国高中就读。当她的父母(迈克尔·佩纳和伊娃·朗格利亚饰演)失踪后,她带着她的背包、刀和小猴子布茨(丹尼·特乔配音)回到丛林。本片是为数不多的女主角是拉美人的好莱坞儿童电影之一,由詹姆斯·波宾执导。波宾导演过最近的两部《布偶大电影》,因此这部电影可能是一部精彩的喜剧片。

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

《在黑暗中讲述的恐怖故事》



A spookier teen horror than the recent Goosebumps films, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is inspired by the trilogy of nightmare-inducing children’s books written by Alvin Schwartz in the 1980s. Set in 1968, it tells the creepy tale of some small-town teenagers who find a book in an abandoned mansion... a book in which all the horror stories are about them. The director is André Øvredal, who made the terrific Norwegian found-footage horror comedy, Trollhunter. But the most exciting name on the credits is the film’s co-writer and co-producer, Guillermo del Toro: this is his first big-screen project since his Oscar-winning creature feature, The Shape of Water.

青少年恐怖片《在黑暗中讲述的恐怖故事》灵感来自艾文·施瓦兹在20世纪80年代所著的恐怖童书三部曲,比最近的几部《鸡皮疙瘩》还要吓人。这部时间背景设定在1968年的童书讲述的是几个小镇青少年在一处被遗弃的豪宅里找到了一本书,这本书里写的恐怖故事全是和这些人有关的。导演安德烈·艾弗道夫曾执导过利用拾得影像创作而成的挪威经典恐怖喜剧《巨怪猎人》。不过演职员名单上最令人激动的名字当属联合编剧和制片人吉尔莫·德尔·托罗:这是他自奥斯卡获奖怪物电影《水形物语》以来的第一部电影作品。

spooky['spuki]: adj. 令人毛骨悚然的

found-footage: 旧片重制(一种拍摄风格)

Where’d You Go, Bernadette

《伯纳黛特你去了哪》



Richard Linklater has a vastly varied filmography, ranging from children’s comedies (School of Rock, Bad News Bears) to psychedelic sci-fi cartoons (A Scanner Darkly), and from romantic trilogies (Before Sunrise and its sequels) to true-crime docudramas (Bernie). But his twentieth film still seems like a departure, partly because it’s his first to focus on a female character. Based on Maria Semple’s bestselling 2012 novel, Where’d You Go, Bernadette stars a dark-bobbed Cate Blanchett as Bernadette Fox, a sardonic suburban mother who shocks her family when she rediscovers her passion for architecture – and then disappears. Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer and Billy Crudup co-star in a mid-life crisis comedy with a mysterious twist.

导演理查德·林克莱特涉猎广泛,从儿童喜剧(《摇滚学校》、《少棒闯天下》)到迷幻科幻动画片(《黑暗扫描仪》),从爱情三部曲(《爱在黎明破晓前》及其续集)到真实犯罪文献片(《伯尼》)。但他的第20部电影似乎是对过去的告别,一部分是因为这是他首部以女性角色为中心的电影。该片基于玛丽亚·桑普2012年的畅销小说《你去了哪》,褐色波波头的凯特·布兰切特饰演的伯纳黛特·福克斯是一位住在市郊的爱讽刺人的母亲,当她重新燃起对建筑的热情后,她就失踪不见,震惊了全家人。克里斯汀·韦格、朱迪·格雷尔和比利·克鲁德普也出演了这部中年危机主题的情节神秘反转的喜剧片。

psychedelic['saɪkə'dɛlɪk]: adj. 幻觉的,引起幻觉的

docudrama['dɑkjudrɑmə]: n. 文献电视片,文献片

sardonic[sɑːrˈdɑːnɪk]: adj. 讽刺的;嘲笑的,冷笑的
