Steven Spielberg is certainly keeping up quite a fierce work rate in his ostensible old age – I haven’t even seen Bridge of Spies yet, and now a trailer for the latest Spielberg joint has already hit the internet before its release in the summer of 2016. It’s, and please keep your jokes to yourself, The BFG.
The BFG, based on the children’s book by Roald Dahl, is about a BFG (“Big Friendly Giant”) who kidnaps a ten-year-old girl and takes her to Dream Country. Wait, kidnaps? I thought he was a friendly giant. I hope this all gets cleared up in the movie, since the contradiction does not appear to be addressed in the trailer.
You can see the trailer for The BFG below. The movie is set to come out on July 1st, 2016, and in the meantime you can check out the book’s official Facebook page right here.
Here’s the trailer:
