Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Bfg’ Comes to Life in New Trailer and Full Cannes Press Conference

15 May 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following the Cannes premiere of Steven Spielberg’s follow-up to Bridge of Spies, his adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s The Bfg, Disney has released a new full-length trailer for the adventure, giving away much more of the titular character’s fantasy-filled world. Coming from the late E.T. scribe Melissa Mathison, the story follows a young girl, Sophie, who guides the Queen of England and the Bfg (Mark Rylance, coming off his Oscar win for Spielberg) — a big, friendly giant — to stop Bloodbottlers, the big and unfriendly sort, from eating children.

Unfortunately, we were mixed on the film, saying in our review from the festival, “CGI loses the day in Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg, a partly motion-captured, eco-minded adaptation of Roald Dahl’s adored children’s book that leans so heavily on green-screen trickery that even Mark Rylance’s kind eyes — squinting out from that computer-generated abyss — can’t save it from mediocrity. »
