September presents a bit of a mixed bag for Hollywood imports into China with films ranging from the massive blockbuster Star Trek Beyond to smaller budget and well-received flicks The Shallows and Black Sea, all the way down to absolute stinkers like the Kevin Spacey starrer, Nine Lives.

Here's the full list of what's coming up so you can start marking your calendar with cinema releases (click on the titles for trailers).

Star Trek Beyond (星际迷航3:超越星辰)
September 2
3D/IMAX3D/CFGS (China Film Giant Screen)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 83 percent
Critics Consensus: Star Trek Beyond continues the franchise's post-reboot hot streak with an epic sci-fi adventure that honors the series' sci-fi roots without skimping on the blockbuster action.

South Paw (铁拳) 
September 2
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 61 percent
Critic Consensus: Jake Gyllenhaal delivers an impressively committed performance, but Southpaw beats it down with a dispiriting drama that pummels viewers with genre cliches.

Black Sea (黑海夺金)
September 9
Type of screens TBA
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 80 percent
Critics Consensus: Black Sea may not be particularly deep, but thanks to Kevin Macdonald's judicious direction and a magnetic performance from Jude Law, it remains an efficiently well-crafted thriller.

The Shallows (鲨滩)
September 9
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 77 percent
Critic Consensus: Critics Consensus: Lean and solidly crafted, The Shallows transcends tired shark-attack tropes with nasty thrills and a powerful performance from Blake Lively.

Nine Lives (九条命)
September 9
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 8 percent
Critics Consensus: Not meow, not ever.

Absolutely Anything (魔法老师)
September 9
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 15 percent
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet, but that’s probably because it was so bad not many critics decided to write about it.

Bastille Day (巴黎危机)
September 20
Type of screens TBA
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 50 percent
Critics Consensus: Bastille Day proves Idris Elba is an action hero in waiting – specifically, waiting for a script that deserves his talents.
