‘Luck’

In the first full-length film from Skydance Animation, Tony Award-nominee Eva Noblezada provides the voice of Sam, “the unluckiest person in the world.” Having grown up in the care system, she hopes to nab some extra good luck for a fellow foster child, and finds her way to a realm where magical creatures — including a black cat voiced by Simon Pegg and a dragon voiced by Jane Fonda — manipulate the human race’s fortunes. It may sound faintly sinister, but the director, Peggy Holmes, promises that “Luck” is full of “positivity and inspiration.”

‘Mack & Rita’

From “Freaky Friday” to “Big,” “13 Going on 30” to “17 Again,” lots of comedies have imagined young minds zapping into older bodies, and vice versa. But the new film from Katie Aselton (“The Freebie,” “Black Rock”) puts a fresh spin on the formula, by aging up, rather than using teens and adults. “Mack & Rita” features a 30-year-old author (Elizabeth Lail) who has always felt that she was a 70-year-old woman on the inside. After going to a new-age workshop in Palm Springs, she is magically transformed into a 70-year-old woman on the outside, too. In her new identity (Diane Keaton), she is a happy, relaxed “glammy granny” social-media influencer, but can that make up for losing 40 years of her life?

‘Bullet Train’

Brad Pitt plays an assassin who is sent by his handler (Sandra Bullock) to grab a briefcase from one of the passengers on a Japanese train, but little does he know that the train is full of other shady characters (Brian Tyree Henry, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon).

‘I Came By’

Playing a rather different character from the ones he’s known for in “Downton Abbey” and “Paddington,” Hugh Bonneville co-stars in “I Came By” as a snooty high-court judge named Sir Hector Blake. Starring alongside him is George MacKay, who plays a Banksy-like graffiti artist whose speciality is to sneak into the homes of Britain’s wealthiest aristocrats and do some unauthorized redecorating.

But when he is in Sir Hector’s London town house, he uncovers a dark secret that puts his life in danger. This Netflix crime thriller promises “classic Hitchcockian suspense via contemporary themes of establishment privilege and corruption.”

《祝你好运》

在Skydance动画公司制作的第一部长片《祝你好运》中,曾获托尼奖提名的伊娃•诺布勒札达将为“全世界最倒霉的人”山姆配音。山姆从小在寄养家庭长大,她希望能为一个同为寄养儿童的伙伴搞到一些好运气,于是她就找到了能够操纵人类运气的神奇生物,其中包括一只由西蒙•佩吉配音的黑猫和一条由简•方达配音的龙。这也许听上去有点邪恶,但是导演佩吉•霍姆斯承诺这部电影充满了“正能量启迪”。

《麦克和丽塔》

从《疯狂星期五》到《长大》,从《女孩梦三十》到《重返17岁》,很多喜剧片都将小孩变成大人,或将大人变成小孩。但是凯蒂•阿赛尔顿(代表作有《免费赠品》和 《黑岩》)导演的这部新片给这一配方加了点新料,让成年人变老,而不是让少年与成年人角色互换。 在新片《麦克和丽塔》中,伊丽莎白•莱尔饰演的30岁作家总是觉得自己内心是个70岁的老太太。从棕榈泉的一家 “新年龄”工作室出来后,她神奇地变成了一个70岁老妇的模样。用这一新身份生活的她成了一个快乐、自在的社交媒体网红,人称“魅力奶奶”(黛安•基顿饰演),但是这能够弥补她失去的40年时光吗?

《杀手疾风号》

布拉德•皮特饰演一名杀手,他的幕后主使(桑德拉•布洛克饰演)让他在日本的一趟列车上从一名乘客那里取走一只手提箱,但是他不知情的是,这趟列车上坐的都是一些阴暗人物(布莱恩•泰里•亨利、亚伦•泰勒-约翰逊、莎姬•贝兹、迈克尔•珊农饰演)。

《我曾来过》

休•博纳维尔在这部新片中饰演的角色与他在《唐顿庄园》和《帕丁顿熊》中令人熟知的角色截然不同,是一个名为赫克托•布莱克爵士的目中无人的高等法院法官。和他一起领衔主演本片的还有乔治•麦凯,他饰演一个类似班克西的涂鸦艺术家,最擅长溜进英国最富有的贵族家中,不经允许就随意作画。但是当他潜入赫克托爵士在伦敦城里的家时,他发现了一个黑暗秘密,自己的生命也因此受到了威胁。奈飞出品的这部犯罪惊悚片承诺将“通过既得特权和腐败的当代主题营造出经典的希区柯克式悬念”。
