前段时间,根据星云奖以及雨果奖得主、华裔科幻作家姜峯楠的同名短篇小说《你一生的故事》(Story of Your Life)改编,电影定名为《降临》(Arrival)的首发预告放出来啦~

这部电影还未上映就因海报轰动一时——一艘巨大的外星人飞船盘旋在不同的城市上空。然而,香港的那张海报中却有一个奇怪的建筑——上海的东方明珠塔。香港出现了上海的地标,这件事惹怒了香港网民。

后来海报撤回并且简单粗暴的把香港海报直接全部变成了上海背景。香港网民当然不会善罢甘休,听说他们在网上号召抵制这部双十一上映的电影。

说起短篇小说改编的电影,英语君话就多了,好多好多好看的电影可都是短篇小说改编的呢~

首先隆重介绍《降临》,一部还没上映就“火”的电影!

1.原著小说:“Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang

改编电影:《降临》(Arrival)

2016.11.11上映

Chiang’s award-winning short story takes a more intimate angle on the alien invasion narrative, focusing on a scientist tasked with communicating with extraterrestrial interlopers and the philosophical and emotional questions ultimately raised by her work.

姜峯楠的获奖短篇小说以一个很个人的角度叙述外星人入侵的故事,讲述的是一个科学家负责与外星入侵者交流,她的工作最终产生了一系列哲学和情感问题……

2.原著小说:“Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” by Stephen King

改编电影:《肖申克的救赎》(1994)

豆瓣评分:9.6

If you ever watched “The Shawshank Redemption” and thought, I wish this were a short story written by a really gifted author, your wish had already come true. The film is actually quite faithfully based on King’s novella.

如果你曾经看过《肖申克的救赎》并思考过,我觉得这部短篇小说是一位非常有天赋作家的著作,你的愿望已经实现了。这部电影非常忠实于斯蒂芬·金的原著短篇。

3.原著小说:“Brokeback Mountain” by Annie Proulx

改编电影:《断背山》(2005)

豆瓣评分:8.5

Before there were Heath and Jake, there was just Annie Proulx’s novel on a page.

在有希斯和杰克(断背山两主角)之前,这仅仅只是安妮·普露的一本小说书。

4.原著小说:“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” by F. Scott Fitzgerald

改编电影:《返老还童》(2008)

豆瓣评分:8.7

That book cover really says it all, no? This story is so bizarre that it stretches credulity that Fitzgerald wrote it and Brad Pitt starred in a movie about it. But while the movie is something of a dramatic, star-crossed romance, the short story is hilariously grim about the realities of an aging-backwards lifestyle.

书的封面就已经说明了一切,对吧?这个故事很离奇,让人难以置信。原著作者是菲茨杰拉德,电影由布拉德·皮特主演。但是这部电影有一种戏剧性十足的、时运不济的浪漫元素,这部短篇小说(主要)讲述了滑稽严酷的现实,时光倒流的生活方式。

5.原著小说:“It Had to Be Murder” by Cornell Woolrich

改编电影:《后窗》(1954)

豆瓣评分:8.4

“It Had to Be Murder,” published by pulp fiction author Woolrich in 1942, has been so thoroughly eclipsed by the movie adaptation, “Rear Window,” that the story is typically packaged under that name now.

《后窗》,由《低俗小说》作者伍尔里奇于1942年发行,电影改编得完全胜于小说,小说现在通常都被称为“后窗”这个名字了。

6.原著小说:“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” by James Thurber

改编电影:《白日梦想家》(2013)

豆瓣评分:8.3

“Walter Mitty,” which tells the story of a repressed, thwarted man who finds escape through elaborately vivid daydreams, might just sit better on the page than the screen.

《白日梦想家)(Walter Mitty),讲述了一个被压抑、充满挫败的人通过精巧生动的白日梦逃避现实的故事,可能坐在那看书比看电影更好一点。

7.原著小说:“The Bear Came Over the Mountain” by Alice Munro

改编电影:《柳暗花明》(2006)

豆瓣评分:8.0

The Nobel Prize–winning Munro has won acclaim for her short fiction that can seem at odds with the quietness of her stories, which typically focus on domestic dramas and women’s daily lives. “Away From Her” successfully turned one of her most poignant stories, about an older couple dealing with the wife’s Alzheimer and the husband’s history of infidelity, into a lovely film — but that’s no excuse to skip the original.

诺贝尔奖得主芒罗因她的短篇小说赢得称赞,她的小说似乎大都很“静”,通常关注国内电视剧和女性的日常生活。《柳暗花明》成功地成为了她最悲伤的小说之一,讲述的是一对老年夫妻在面对妻子得了老年痴呆、而丈夫不忠的历史,(导演)将其拍成了一部有爱的电影——不过不读原著那真是太可惜了。

你们看过这些原著吗?看过原著和电影的说说你们更喜欢哪个吧?
