It’s really fantastic. B: Red Dragon? I haven’t even heard about it. A: What are you? From the cave? It has been an instant hit after it was put on show in the theatre. B: Well, I told you I was busy. So what was it about? A: It’s actually the prequel to The silence of the Lambs. In this one, the story of a former FBI agent Will Graham, who was nearly killed by Hannibal Lecter, is told, and it includes the initial capture of “the Cannibal”. B: Really? I have watched The silence of the Lambs. It features Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster, right? A: You are right. But the new movie has a stronger cast, including young talents like Edward Norton and Ralph Fiennes. Of course, Anthony Hopkins stays and still plays Dr. Lecter. B: It sounds really exciting. I should try to find some time to go. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20141227/212357.html
