    Title: The BFG

    Genre: Fantasy, Family

    Director: Steven Spielberg

    Cast: Rebecca Hall, Bill Hader, Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Marilyn Norry

    Plot: The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

    I love the 1989 version and watched it loads as a kid, even though it terrified me lol. Glad to see Spielberg has kept the same sort of tone with this version. Can't wait to see it!

    Only one man could do it. And his name is Spielberg! And with a score by Williams, its bound to be a smash.

    Yeah I say it all the time but why is it on the poster like that? Don't make sense. It's not jack and the beanstalk

    I remember years ago when me and my mates see hot rod and that cool beans scene blew our minds! We didn't realise anyone else said it lol

    You've never read the book then, the BFG and the evil giants refer to human beings as "human beans".

    Same goes for the 1989 film... they call them "human beans" in that too. :)

    If I'm being honest... it took me a second to click when I first read the poster. :p

    Another opportunity for Mark Rylance to show off his talents , was hoping he'd get an Oscar but I'm kinda cool with Stallone being favourite .

    Looks cool but the CGI looks a little odd in places, hopefully turns out good though.
    I like that scene in the street when he twists and covers the street light
    Rylance sounds great though

    The CG looks phenomenal IMO, but I imagine they're still touching up on it, so it'll no doubt look even better for release.

    Yeah, that was really cool! It's made me want to go back and watch the animated version now. I honestly think Rylance was made for this role... his face and voice is perfect for it, and he's obviously a great actor too.
