The Zhou Dongyu and Jackson Yee-starring movie was pulled from cinema schedules earlier in the year
本年早些时辰,由周冬雨和易烊千玺主演的片子《少年的你》遭到撤档

The Chinese internet is currently abuzz with news of a long-awaited, long-delayed release dropping on October 25. No, not?Jesus is King, but Hong Kong director Derek Kwok-cheung Tsang’s disaffected youth drama?Better Days?— a movie that was abruptly pulled from competition at this year’s Berlinale film festival in February due to “technical reasons.”
今朝,网络上充斥着大家等待已久的延迟上映的片子终究定档了的消息,不是Jesus Is King,而是喷鼻港导演曾国祥执导的芳华片《少年的你》,本年二月,该片曾因“前期制造缘由”加入柏林国际片子节评选。

The film was one of a number of high-profile Chinese productions to suddenly disappear from international festivals and domestic cinema schedules in the first half of 2019, leading to considerable doom and gloom in China’s film industry.?Zhang Yimou’s?One Second, a piece set amid the chaos of the Cultural Revolution, was also?unceremoniously yanked from the Berlinale?at the last minute, while Zu Feng’s?Summer of Changshadisappeared without warning from Cannes?in May.
2019年上半年,很多备受注目标中国片子忽然从国际片子节和国际片子院中消掉,给中国片子业的生长带来相当大的暗影,《少年的你》就是个中捕鱼电玩上下分之一。还有张艺谋的《一秒钟》,背景设定在文明大革命的纷乱时代下,也在最后一刻从柏林片子节中退选,而祖峰执导的《六欲天》,也没有任何预示情况下从五月的戛纳片子节加入。

The movie was forced to postpone its scheduled domestic release in June just three days before it was due out — the same period of notice that’s now been given for its rescheduled release.
《少年的你》这部片子自愿捕鱼电玩上下分推延了原定于本年六月的首映时间,而定档日期间隔上映日期只提早了三天。

Starring Zhou Dongyu (of Zhang Yimou’s?Under the Hawthorn Tree) and?TFBoy Jackson Yee,?Better Days?follows a bullied student in the run-up to China’s all-important — and notoriously stressful —?gaokaonational college entrance exams.
仰仗张艺谋的《山查树之恋》走红的周冬雨和tfboys成员易烊千玺合营主演的《少年的你》讲述的是中国高考背景下一名遭受校园霸凌的先生的故事。

According to the official blurb, “Like so many others, Nian has been single-mindedly preparing for the exam, cutting everything else out of her life. When she becomes the target of relentless bullying, fate brings her together with small-time criminal Bei and the two form a strong friendship. Before they can completely retreat into a world of their own, the two are dragged in the middle of a murder case of a teenage girl where they are the prime suspects.”
官方简介是如许的:“像很多其他人一样,陈念一向同心专心一意地预备着测验,把生活中其他一切都抛诸脑后。但当她成为无情的欺负的对象,命运让她碰见了罪犯小北,并和他建立起稳定的友情。在他们退回到自己的世界之前,他们两个作为犯法嫌疑人被卷入了一场少女谋杀案中。

Yee isn’t the first member of squeaky clean pop group TFBoys to tackle a gritty subject matter on the big screen. Roy Wang appeared in Wang Xiaoshuai’s exploration of the impact of the One Child Policy,?So Long, My Son, earlier this year.
易烊千玺其实不是他们组合第一个在大荧幕上扮演坚持不懈的角色的成员,本年早些时辰,王源参演了讲述独生后代政策影响的片子《地久天长》。

Perhaps unsurprisingly in the current climate, censors seemingly balked at?Better Days‘?content and releasing it around the time of the actual gaokao exams. Exactly what has been left on the cutting room floor and how this will effect the overall feel of the film that is now making it to Chinese cinema screens is hard to determine. But there is considerable excitement online at the film’s long-delayed release, with?Better Dayshashtags attracting hundreds of thousands of views on microblogging service Weibo this week. Well Go, who have distributed a number of big-name Chinese releases in the US in recent years, are now reportedly looking at securing a North America run for the film.
在当前的大背景下,制造团队貌似对《少年的你》的内容避而不谈并选择在实际高考的时间上映,这或许其实不令人惊奇。至于剪辑室的地板上留下了什么,和这将怎么影响正在上映的该片的全体不雅感,今朝还很难肯定。然则这部片子推延了好久才上映,这在网络上惹起了巨大的反响。本周,《少年的你》话题吸引了不计其数的浏览量,well go公司近年来在美国发行了多部有名中国片子,据悉,该公司今朝正在推敲在北美发行这部影片。

Interestingly,?Summer of Changsha?also made it to a domestic screen just last week — albeit in a far more low-key fashion at Fuzhou’s Silk Road Film Festival. That seems to have been a prelude to a nationwide release however, with Zu’s reportedly dark thriller now also set for an unlikely rebound from its previous “technical issues.”
风趣的是,《六欲天》上周也在国际上映了,虽然是在福州丝绸之路片子节上以一种更低调的方法上映,但是可以说这是全国上映的前奏,据报导,这部祖峰执导的影片中的阴霾捕鱼电玩上下分惊悚元素曾经用电脑技巧停止了调剂。
