Broadsheet Trailer Park: The BFG

What you may need to know:

1.
Steven Spielberg directs Mark Rylance in Disney adaption of the Roald Dahl classic.

2. By all accounts he was a bit of a dick. Dahl that is, not Spielberg. Or Rylance.

3. John Williams is back. Huzzah!

4. The BFG was Melissa Mathison’s (E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial) last movie. I’m welling up already.

5. This footage is probably far from finished, but the BFG is looking a bit Uncanny Valley.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: A scrumdiddlyumptious phizzwizard.

Release Date:
July 22 2016.

      It will be well put together in any case: Spielberg’s taking no chances with soundtrack and casting. I’d rather see Tales Of The Unexpected be adapted for HBO, Sky Atlantic or similar but BFG will scratch the itch for a while.

        I’m not a fan of Disney’s live action stuff, though Cinderella was ok and I reckon that was down to Kenneth Brannagh, so I’d say you’re right about Spielberg. He knows how to make a movie, and how to do it well. I’ll check out that Tales of the Unexpected though. Sounds interesting.

    BFG as in Big Fupping Gun?
    EDIT: apparantly it stands for Big friendly giant. . . which is kinda a spoiler, I didn’t knew this giant was friendly, I was hoping for a nice thriller/horror movie, by the way the trailer progressed.
