    Event Details

    23 October (Wed) Shadow 影 116mins | NC16

    Shadows have existed since ancient times. In times of danger, a shadow must step forward to serve his master. A shadow and his master are one, indistinguishable from each other. Not much is known about shadows, as it is a taboo subject for the master. Ziyu, the commander-in-chief of the Kingdom of Pei, is defeated by Yang Cang, a general of the Kingdom of Yan, Pei’s enemy. After he is injured, Ziyu uses Jingzhou (his shadow whom he has trained since childhood) to substitute him in the courts and battlefield. Pei Liang (the king of Pei) and Ziyu continue to scheme against each other, while Jingzhou the shadow struggles to survive in the power game of the nobles.

    这是一个关于替身的故事。替身自古有之,人称“影子”。有刺杀,就有影子,影子必须在危急关头挺身而出,替主人博回一命;影子又必须与真身互为一体,令旁人真假难辨如同孪生。关于影子的来龙去脉,真身从来忌讳莫深,不愿提及而令真相扑朔迷离。沛国大都督子虞,被敌国战将杨苍击败,负伤之后启用从小培养的替身境州,为他行走在朝堂和战场。同时,沛国国君沛良与大都督子虞互相算计。作为“影子替身”存在的境州在贵族的权谋游戏中苦苦求生,为了活下去而经历种种困境和挣扎。


    24 October (Thu) The Wandering Earth 流浪地球 125mins | PG13

    In the near future, scientists discover that the sun is rapidly ageing and expanding at a rate that will consume the entire solar system in a short period of time time. In order to preserve mankind, “The Wandering Earth” project is conceived. It involves building tens of thousands of thrusters to propel Earth out of the solar system, into another habitat in 2,500 years’ time. Chinese astronaut Liu Peiqiang (played by Wu Jing) goes to work at the International Space Station when his son Liu Qi is four years old. When Liu Qi (played by Qu Chuxiao) grows up, he and his younger sister Duoduo (played by Zhao Jinmai) are arrested for stealing their grandfather’s (Han Zi’ang, played by Wu Mengda) truck. At this time, the thrusters on Earth stop working and cause Earth to head towards Jupiter. People all over the world, including Liu Qi, take part in a major rescue operation to fix the thrusters and prevent Earth from colliding with Jupiter. Racing against time, countless people risk their lives to save Earth for the future generations.

    近未来,科学家们发现太阳急速衰老膨胀,短时间内包括地球在内的整个太阳系都将被太阳所吞没。为了自救,人类提出一个名为“流浪地球”的大胆计划,即倾全球之力在地球表面建造上万座发动机和转向发动机,推动地球离开太阳系,用2500年的时间奔往另外一个栖息之地。中国航天员刘培强(吴京 饰)在儿子刘启四岁那年前往国际空间站,和国际同侪肩负起领航者的重任。转眼刘启(屈楚萧 饰)长大,他带着妹妹朵朵(赵今麦 饰)偷偷跑到地表,偷开外公韩子昂(吴孟达 饰)的运输车,结果不仅遭到逮捕,还遭遇了全球发动机停摆的事件。为了修好发动机,阻止地球坠入木星,全球开始展开饱和式营救,连刘启他们的车也被强征加入。在与时间赛跑的过程中,无数的人前仆后继,奋不顾身,只为延续百代子孙生存的希望……
