“Avengers: The War of Infinity” (since May 3)

Directed by: Anthony and Joe Russo.

Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch.

One of the biggest cinema premieres of the year will hit theaters all over the world at the very beginning of May. Unconditional event in the world of cinema and the owner of numerous records at least for the costs of shooting. It is rumored that the budget of the new Avengers has reached an incredible half-billion dollars, which will allow the tape to easily remove the fourth-most expensive Pirates of the Caribbean from the pedestal.

The plot of the next kinokomixov is not much different from everything that we have already seen. Again there is an incredibly powerful villain. Again, he needs to enslave / destroy / change the world. Again for this he needs powerful artifacts. Again saving us all will be superheroes in tights. Differences in the extraordinary scope of events. In the “War of Infinity” gathered almost all more or less significant heroes of the universe Marvel and threw them into a meat grinder with hordes of enemies.

To mark the entire star cast, it would be necessary to write a separate article. In the new “Avengers” you can see the whole color of Hollywood, and at least for the sake of this event it is worth going to the premiere. To miss such sinfully!

“Island of dogs” (since May 3)

Directed by: Wes Anderson.

Usually, we seldom write about cartoon premiers, unless we are talking about high-profile projects from “Disney” and competitors. In the May compilation there are two animations at once. About “Rasprekrasnom prince” we’ll tell you a little later – this is just the story of the “big animation”. But with the “Island of Dogs” everything is different, because this author’s work is done without using the fashionable CGI.

Actions “Islands of dogs” occur in one of the prefectures of Japan. The local mayor, a passionate admirer of cats, issued a decree according to which all dogs must be driven to a dump. It concerns also the faithful dog belonging to the nephew of the mayor – the 12-year-old boy Atari. The guy steals the plane and goes in search of his shaggy friend. A lot of adventures await him.

“Island of Dogs” is shot in the puppet animation of stop-motion. That is, they pushed the paw – they made a frame, the tail moved the dog – another one, and so on. This creates an illusion of movement. Today, in this technique, cartoons are almost never removed, because it’s expensive, long and not for a wide audience. But the cartoon was well received at the Berlin Film Festival, where he took the “Silver Bear” for directing.

Sobibor (since May 3)

Director: Konstantin Khabensky.

Cast: Konstantin Khabensky, Christopher Lambert, Felice Yankell, Dainius Kazlauskas.

This time, in May, there will not be too many “military” prime ministers. And from what will be, the most attention deserves the directorial debut of Konstantin Khabensky.

The film is based on a real story about the only successful uprising in the concentration camp. It’s about the Sobibor camp in Poland. In the autumn of 1943, prisoners led by Soviet officer Alexander Pechersky were able to kill security and escape. Of the more than 400 fugitives, the war survived only a little over 50.

To work on “Sobibor” approached in a big way. For the film, the decorators even reconstructed the death camp in detail. Among the actors there are not only Russians, but also Lithuanians, Poles, Dutch and Christopher Lambert himself.

“Deadpool 2” (since May 17)

Director: David Litch.

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, TJ Miller, Bill Skarsgard.

The main abomination of the superhero world Marvel returns to the big screens. This was waiting for everyone who was sick of the sugary and pretentious representatives of kinomiksoksov. Because Deadpool carries a bag of humor, carries a cart of vulgarity and a car of sarcasm.

The main antagonist of a guy with a terrible face is that dude from the future. Mutant Cable arrived to get to the boy, capable of changing the course of history. Yes, just like in the “Terminator”. Deadpool will get involved in this whole story and through joke-jokes will save the boy, simultaneously gathering a team of psychologically superheroes like him.

The director of the first “Deadpool” to participate in the filming of the continuation refused because of disagreements with Ryan Reynolds. Director’s chair eventually took David Litch, on account of which “Blasting Blonde” and “John Wick.” We are sure that this should benefit the action-component picture.

“Finished” (since May 17)

Directed by: Vaughn Stein.

Cast: Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons.

Oh, these localizers! Harmless in general, the English-language name of the Terminal is turned into a “finished” – it must be very hard to try. Well, at least it will attract the attention of the Russian-speaking audience to the British neo-nuar, which can easily turn out to be one of the most memorable events of the year in the world of cinema.

In accordance with the covenants of Guy Ritchie, the focus of the tape is a few conditionally the main characters. So, here there are a couple of hired assassins who need to execute a very dangerous order. But the teacher who seeks yes does not find a worthy way to kill himself. The waitress is ready to help him, at the same time to turn several of his artful deeds. The sinister janitor observes what is happening and is also plotting something. The plot destinies of all the heroes will eventually unite, mix and lead to something absurd.

The “Conqueror” has a tremendous caste. Margot Robbie recently claimed Oscar for the role of figure skater in the film “Tonya against all”, Mike Myers once pleased with hilarious characters in “Austin Powers”, and you already know Simon Pegg. A film with the most stupid localized name, but also with great potential.

“Han Solo: Star Wars. Stories “(since May 24)

Director: Ron Howard.

Cast: Alden Ehrenraik, Emilia Clark, Paul Bettany, Woody Harrelson.

May will not let you just take it and rest from blockbusters. After the “Avengers” and the second “Deadpool” – a control shot in the form of another spin-off of the famous saga. But it was not even half a year after the release of the eighth episode! It seems, “Star Wars” in our lives will become more and more.

“Han Solo,” as the name implies, is dedicated to events that are slightly detached from the main storyline of the saga. The tape will tell the story of the smuggler, the beginning of his friendship with Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. Finally, we learn in which “fair game” Khan won the “Millennium Falcon”.

In the role of Khan Solo, alas, not Harrison Ford, and young actor Alden Ehrenraik. Initially, the new part of the stories of “Star Wars” was directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, on account of which “Lego. Film “and both parts” Macho and Botan “. Their addiction to humor, however, did not appeal to the bosses, and Ron Howard was invited instead. It is rumored that he made from “Solo” almost a gangster drama.

“There will be no sex !!!” (since May 24)

Director: Kay Cannon.

Cast: Catherine Newton, Leslie Mann, Gideon Adlon, John Cena.

The “American Pie” laurels will not give rest to cinematographers for a long time. Another attempt could well pass by in the crowd of the same vulgar comedies that begin to bloom and bear fruit in the summer season. However, “There will not be any sex !!!” (again, in the original it’s just Blockers, but the localizers can not stop any more) surprises with a lot of positive feedback.

Although, it would seem, where do they come from? After all, the topic that plays out the issues of deprivation of virginity and other worrisome graduates of the school urgent problems is traveled along and across. Can you think of new and funny jokes about sex? Judging by the first reviews, there is still gunpowder in the flasks.

In the foreign box office “Sex will not be !!!” appeared a few months ago. The average score of reviews on the Metacritic aggregator is 70 points out of 100. Very much for such films! In general, praise the actresses, the heroines of which showed that they can be no less bawdy and funny than the boys.

“Rasprekrasny prince” (since May 24)

Director: Ross Venokur.

Cartoon Canadian and girlish, but produced by the mighty forces responsible for cartoons about Shrek. And still here you can hear the voice of Avril Lavigne, true, only if you watch and listen to the premiere in the original language.

Rasprekrasny prince and then rasprekrasny that he adores all the girls of the kingdom. It’s all about the gift that the guy received from birth: until he turns 21, he will be the most enviable groom in the world. But here at stake is the damnest 21-year anniversary, after which the prince will not be needed. So, it’s time for him to go on a dangerous adventure and perform three exploits in order to find true love.

“Red Sparrow” (since May 31)

Director: Francis Lawrence.

Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Charlotte Rampling.

A strange spy thriller, based on the novel of the same name by Jason Matthews. Film critics and spectators split into two camps – a film or like it, or not, the middle one is not given. Most likely, the snag is how Russia is perceived today in the foreign policy arena.

Young Dominica was born in Russia, so, of course, she wanted to be a ballerina. However, after the injury, the plans flew away. The Bolshoi Theater will have to be exchanged for a career as a seducing spy. And then the “mole” does not give rest, which was started at home and works for foreign countries …

“Red Sparrow” scolded for a predictable story, “cranberry” and boredom. Honor about the same. Surprisingly, the project managed to lure many stars of the first magnitude, led by Jennifer Lawrence.

“Draft” (since May 31)

Director: Sergei Mokritsky.

Cast: Nikita Volkov, Yevgeny Tkachuk, Olga Borovskaya, Andrey Merzlikin.

The screen version of the novel of the same name by Sergei Lukyanenko, which even before the release was able to engender a cruel holivar. Lovers of the paper “Chistovik” looked at the trailer and let’s be indignant that the book is nothing left. Those who do not like the novel, in shock from flying combat matryoshkas, actors’ games and other trash.

The main character of the film is the designer of computer games Cyril. Once he is no longer recognized by everyone with whom he was familiar. Then Kirill is informed that he is elected for an important mission. From now on, he must meet and see off travelers on parallel worlds. Do you want to return to your old life? It will not work, because the mysterious forces have other plans.

To look or not? This is just the case when an invaluable help in finding an answer to a question can be given by viewing a trailer that grabbed a bunch of dislikes on YouTube. But if you liked, then wait for “Draft”, of course, is worth it.
