Here’s the latest trailer for The BFG, the latest film from Steven Spielberg based on the classic Roald Dahl novel. The story follows Sophie as she meets a magical giant who creates dreams for children. Films based on Dahl’s books have been a mixed bag with Charlie and the Chocolate factory twice adapted not quite right, The Witches bottled the ending, James and the Giant Peach not being the most memorable. Still, we’ll always have Rik Mayall’s wonderful telling of George’s Marvellous Medicine.
Happily, it seems this film might be among the best with several fantastic reviews coming in from the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Mark Rylance stars in the title role along with Bill Hader, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Jermaine Clement and Ruby Barnhill as Sophie.
The BFG arrives in cinemas on 22 July 2016
