There aren't words in any language to describe how bad this movie from 2017 looks. No wonder it got added at the last minute to the end of November.

There's probably only one reason left in the world to want to see this movie, and that's the main actor. Male and female alike can appreciate the aqueous physique of the Dothraki, I mean underwater god.
And the fact that China is getting this TWO weeks before the US release is telling. They know it'll do better here than abroad.
Plot: Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and be a hero to the world. We assume this is before he meets Batfleck and Superman and Wonder Woman, et al.
Actors: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Jeffrey Thomas

Based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime. As the two avid sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn't anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.

With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. Adrift is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.

And yes, this is the same movie as the original from 1988, but digitally remastered (we assume) and back in the cinemas in China just in time for the holidays! If you've never seen this movie, we highly recommend it...
Two young girls, 10-year-old Satsuki and her 4-year-old sister Mei, move into a house in the country with their father to be closer to their hospitalized mother.

After David Kim (John Cho)'s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter's laptop.
In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter's digital footprints before she disappears forever.
I feel like we downloaded this one a couple months ago.

You may have read this film title and thought to yourself, "No that can't be. They don't mean that." But it's true, they do.
Upon realizing the extent to which women are affected by their periods, a man (yes, a man) sets out to create a sanitary pad machine and to provide inexpensive sanitary pads to the women of rural India. And the feminists rejoiced!
Hopefully China's recent ambition to show more and more Bollywood films doesn't come back to bite them.
For those who don't know, The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit.
Funny, heartwarming, and assumedly visually stunning, it's a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company.
With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Whoville when he runs out of food. Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter, and louder celebrations. What will he do when the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year!?
Note: this film is in Russian with Chinese subtitles
A grizzled special operations Major wakes up after a botched drug bust to find he is now inhabiting the body of a baby. But crimes still need to be solved, so he hitches up his diaper and gets back to work.
I wonder what went through the head of the producer when the director/writers pitched this movie to him? And then... hey, we should release this in China, too!

We're actually really surprised to see this one on the list! And only a week after its US release. Not bad at all. An early Kwanzaa present to us!
