Warner Bros. today, released the first teaser trailer of one of the highly anticipated films of the decade, Christopher Nolan’s, Dunkirk.

The cast includes Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, academy award winner – Mark Rylance, and Harry Styles in acting debut.

Christopher Nolan, is a film enthusiast and a believer of film and practical effects. The film is being shot in IMAX 65 mm and large format 65 mm cameras. It is slated for release on 21st July, 2017.
More importantly, Chris Nolan, is been speculated to have crashed a real World War II plane for the movie, considered as one of the biggest stunts in history of cinema, or at least in his career. An auteur filmmaker, who prefers to capture everything possible in camera to special/visual effects, it does not come as surprise for his followers.

The three creative geniuses of our times Roald Dahl (novelist), Walt Disney (Innovator) and Steven Spielberg (Storyteller) have come together and made one of the most loved works of Dahl, The BFG as a feature film. Also joins the critically acclaimed screenwriter Melissa Mathison, whose earlier major screenplays include E.T( Extraterrestrial, 1982) and Kundan (1997) a biographical drama about Dalai Lama.


As the name suggests the film is about the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) from the giant world, who brings a precocious, 10 year old girl Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) from London to his cave in the dream country of him. He collects dreams and shares them with children and tells them the wonders, mysteries, and dangers of their world and dreams. The BFG is Mark Rylance, who won academy for best supporting actor for his role in The Bridge of Spies.

Oscar (R) winner Mark Rylance stars as the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) in Disney's fantasy-adventure, THE BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg based on the best-selling book by Roald Dahl, which opens in theaters nationwide on July 1.

“I think it was kind of genius of Roald Dahl to be able to empower the children. It was very, very brave of him to introduce that combination of darkness and light which was so much Disney’s original signature in a lot of their earlier works like in ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Fantasia,’ ‘Snow White’ and ‘Cinderella,’ and being able to do scary, but also be redemptive at the same time and teach a lesson, an enduring lesson, to everyone, it was a wonderful thing for Dahl to have done, and it was one of the things that attracted me to want to direct this Dahl book,” says Spielberg.

In Disney's fantasy-adventure THE BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Roald Dahl's beloved classic, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London named Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) befriends the BFG (Oscar (R) winner Mark Rylance), a Big Friendly Giant from Giant Country. The film opens in theaters nationwide on July 1.

The BFG is an outcast, as unlike other giants, he does not eat humans, instead he survives on Snozzcumber and Frobscottle ( fictional food and drink respectively of the worlds of BFG). He is 24 foot tall, with enormous ears and lovingly stupid. Soon, Sophie and The BFG become friends on realising their warm and cordial intentions. Meanwhile, the giant world, realises the unwanted presence of the girl, and the other giants intend to kill both The BFG and girl. The rest of the plot revolves on how does the small little girl, Sophie, plans and protects the giant, The BFG for their friendship.

‘It’s a story about friendship, it’s a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it’s a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems’, says Spielberg.

Only few fortunate ones exist in the world, who are beyond the relationships humans can ever understand. The BFG is one such relationship!

The theatrical release is scheduled on 1st of July 2016.
