You may like Hollywood movies, but how many can you identify from nothing more than their Chinese soundtrack? Film Friday is a regular lesson series here at Popup Chinese. In every episode, we play a short clip from a Hollywood film that's been dubbed into mandarin. If you can guess the original from nothing more than our brief clip, send your guess in to for a chance to win a month of free premium access to our site. And good luck!

Echo hasn't picked the winner yet, but we'll post when she has. @doublebearhugs has nailed the transcription, although it might be helpful to think of 潜望镜 as periscope and 响声 as ping.... :)

Arg! I didn't understand most of the Chinese, but thought it might be a submarine movie from the sound effects. Should have written in!
