        Christopher Robin         《克里斯托弗·罗宾》
        A beloved childhood teddy bear comes to life and wants to rekindle his friendship with the grown man who, as a child, once played with him? The boy who’s grown up is none other than Christopher Robin, played by Ewan McGregor. Christopher Robin is in a funk and has lost the whimsy of his youth, so of course his onetime nursery companion needs to step in and help him find some magic again. Released 3 August in the US, Mexico, Sri Lanka and South Africa and 17 August in the UK, Iceland and Poland.

        Crazy Rich Asians         《摘金奇缘》
        “I wanted to introduce a contemporary Asia to a North American audience.” That’s what author Kevin Kwan told The Daily Beast not long after the publication of his novel Crazy Rich Asians, about the lifestyles of the rich and fabulous in his native Singapore. In this new film adaptation produced by the team led by producer Nina Jacobson that brought the Hunger Games books to the big screen, Constance Wu plays a US economics professor who discovers that her boyfriend’s family is one of Singapore’s richest and is caught in a web of schemes and secrets. It also heralds the arrival of a new star, Henry Golding, as Wu’s love interest – Golding is a presenter on BBC World News’ programme The Travel Show – along with established talents such as Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong and Ronny Chieng. Released 15 August in the US and Portugal, 22 August in The Philippines and Singapore and 31 August in Cambodia and Lithuania. (Credit: Warner Bros Pictures)        
        The Spy Who Dumped Me         《我的间谍前男友》
        Kate McKinnon is now one of the most respected and prolific comedians in the US: aside from the bevy of characters she assays on Saturday Night Live, she’s appeared in Ghostbusters, Office Christmas Party and Rough Night in just the past two years alone. Mila Kunis, on the other hand, is an actress with incredible untapped comedic potential – it’s been hinted at in movies like Friends With Benefits and Bad Moms, but hopefully her knack for hilarity will be fully unleashed in this new team-up with McKinnon, The Spy Who Dumped Me. Spy spoofs are a dime a dozen, but this one could be interesting for being a female buddy comedy: Kunis’s ex-boyfriend turns out to work for the CIA and baddies come after him by coming after her first. Only her pal McKinnon remains at her side as all manner of supervillainy threatens her: but the bad guys will find out that, together, they’re Double Trouble. Released 3 August in the US, Pakistan and Spain and 22 August in the UK and Ireland.

        The Wife         《贤妻》
        “Close is so extraordinary… that she lifts an otherwise ordinary movie,” writes The Hollywood Reporter’s Jon Frosch in his review of The Wife. Glenn Close plays the wife of an author (Jonathan Pryce) who’s just been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature; for decades, she’s neglected her own calling as a writer to support her husband, a man who by all appearances lives up to the cliché that a great artist can’t be a good man. And after he becomes a Laureate, she may finally have had enough. Screenwriter Jane Anderson (It Could Happen to You) adapts Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel, with Sweden’s Björn Runge making his English-language directing debut. Released 17 August in the US and 24 August in South Africa.
