Roald Dahl is one of the greatest children’s book authors of all time, and the films made of his stories are usually very good to all-time classics. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was written by Dahl himself back in 1971, and before the bizarre Tim Burton big screen adaptation starring Johnny Depp, there was the beloved Gene Wilder version, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Since then we’ve gotten excellent work in films like The Witches, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach. Take the finest child author and combine him with the greatest living director, Steven Spielberg, and you get a the potential for a classic in the making: Disney’s The BFG… Big Friendly Giant.

Movie Review: Steven Spielberg's THE BFG, starring Mark Rylance.

The BFG
Director: Steven Spielberg
Screenwriter: Melissa Mathison
Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall, Bill Hader
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 117 Minutes
Release Date: July 1, 2016

Roald Dahl created some of the most beloved children’s stories of the 20th century, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Like Walt Disney, Dahl had a knack for fusing the fantastic with the frightening, blending sweetness with sadness in a way that resonated with old and young alike.

Dahl’s The BFG was first published in 1982, the same year Steven Spielberg’s own seminal tale of friendship, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences around the world. It’s funny how things work out. Three decades later, Spielberg and his E.T. collaborator, the late screenwriter Melissa Mathison, have adapted the Dahl’s timeless adventure for the big screen.

Disney's The BFG

Disney has released the official trailer for The BFG, director Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of the 1982 Roald Dahl story of the same name, which is set to release later this year fairly close to the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth. A teaser trailer for the movie was released back in December of last year, and can viewed right here if you missed it.

The new trailer gives us a much better look at the movie and the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) himself (played by recent Oscar winner Mark Rylance), and perhaps even some BNSFG (Bigger Not So Friendly Giants).

Check out the trailer and a poster and read more about the movie below.

The BFG image 01

Steven Spielberg reunites with his Bridge of Spies star Mark Rylance for an adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s children’s classic, The BFG. Rylance didn’t get as much screen time as his fellow Spies co-star Tom Hanks, but he stole plenty of scenes with his strong performance. And now we will be able to see what he can do when he shares the screen with newcomer Ruby Barnhill for a much bigger role as the titular character.

In the film, Barnhill plays a little girl who appears to be the only one in her orphanage who can see and speak to the title monstrous giant, who will take her the mysterious Giant Country. Take a peek at the very first look at Disney’s The BFG below.

Transcendence Movie  Banner

The trailers keep on coming for Transcendence, the directorial debut for frequent Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister. We’ve already seen some teaser trailers and one full trailer, and now comes a second full trailer.

The movie stars Johnny Depp as a man working to create a machine with an unheard of level of intelligence…something an anti-technology extremist group does not want to see him succeed at. When they attempt to stop him, he becomes part of the machine he was trying to build, and more powerful than ever.

You can read a full synopsis and watch the new trailer for Transcendence below.

Transcendence Teaser Trailer

A couple of days back a pair of teaser trailers were released for Transcendence, the feature directorial debut of Inception and The Dark Knight cinematographer Wally Pfister starring Johnny Depp.

Usually a studio releases teasers and trailers here and there over many months, but as it turns out, Warner Brothers couldn’t wait to share Transcendence with the masses. In addition to the two teasers, a third teaser and the first full trailer were also released later that same day. Odd!

You can check out the full trailer and third teaser trailer below now if you’ve not yet seen them.

Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray

Iron Man 3
Blu-ray/DVD/Digital l DVD/Digital l Digital
DIRECTOR: Shane Black
WRITER: Shane Black, Drew Pearce
STARRING: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Paul Bettany
Marvel Studios
RELEASE DATE: September 24, 2013

Now that The Avengers has come and gone, effectively ending Phase One of the Marve Cinematic Universe, it’s time to kick off Phase Two, which will include sequels to Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, and newcomer Guardians of the Galaxy. But what better way to start off the second phase than with the franchise that began the first: Iron Man.

Iron Man 3 sees Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as the eccentric billionaire with a heart of gold-ish (at least plated) and high tech armor for everything else, Tony Stark. Not returning this time around, however, is director Jon Favreau, who helmed the first two installments. Favreau appears in the movie as Stark’s former bodyguard and new head of security Happy Hogan and remains an executive producer, but it’s Shane Black taking a seat in the director’s chair this time around, which made perfect sense given that he’d previously worked with Downey Jr. on the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Iron Man 3 Theatrical Poster

Iron Man 3
Director: Shane Black
Screenwriter(s): Drew Pearce, Shane Black
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall
Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 129 Minutes
Release Date: May 3, 2013

Directed and co-written by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Iron Man 3 is both an end – the definitive conclusion to the Iron Man trilogy – and a beginning; the first entry in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s New Year’s Eve, 1999. A disheveled, bespectacled scientist by the name of Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) approaches Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) at a technology summit in Bern, Switzerland. Killian invites Stark to join his think tank, Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM), but the billionaire playboy (not yet a philanthropist) is too busy puttin’ the moves on fellow scientist and all-around hottie Dr. Maya Hansen, played by Rebecca Hall.

Fast-forward 13 years where Aldrich Killian has become a charismatic titan of industry. His new human enhancement program, Extremis, turns crippled test subjects into super soldiers – most of the time. Sometimes candidates become human H-bombs and explode, vaporizing everyone around them into shadows and dust. That’s OK though because Killian has aligned himself with the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), leader of the international terrorist organization The Ten Rings, who needs soldiers (and bombs) for his movement.
