The BFG has just premiered at Cannes with early reviews suggest the new collaboration between ET writer and director Melissa Mathison (who sadly died shortly after completing the screenplay) and director Steven Spielberg, may not be as good as their earlier film, but still pretty entertaining.
The tie in with the premiere, a new trailer has been released, which you can take a look at below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘“The BFG” is the exciting tale of a young London girl and the mysterious Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, “The BFG” (Big Friendly Giant) was published in 1982 and has been enchanting readers of all ages ever since. Dahl’s books, which also include “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Matilda” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” are currently available in 58 languages and have sold over 200 million copies worldwide.’
It’ll be in UK cinemas in July.
