The BFG is well known for his truncated speech. His broken English and Cornish accent has been well-established since the conception of the book and has been immortalised by David Jason in the animated version. So hearing him speak yet again in Steven Spielberg’s latest film is somewhat of a triumphant moment.
Based on a book by Roald Dahl, The BFG revolves around a world where Giants are child chomping beasts who gobble kids up in the night. Sophie, a bright young girl, has been trying to spy them but comes across something completely new – The Big Friendly Giant whose sole purpose is to give dreams to young’uns. Together, they enter the biggest adventure ever!
In this latest clip, you’ll see The BFG speak for the first time (despite the fact we’ve had lots of clips beforehand that show him talking.) Although, Rylance will probably never raise to the brilliance of Jason in the 1989 film, he’ll certainly be amazing.

THE BFG IS OUT 22ND JUNE
Simon Pegg is one of or genius comedic writers and performers. We’ve love him. He’s perfect. He can wrap us up in hilarity and then smack us in the face with emotion. He is literally the striving force in British comedy and that continues with many movies this year…
….annnnnnnd he populates some of your less beloved children’s movies with his role in Ice Age: Collision Course.
Ice Age: Collision Course has a plot like so; there is something about a meteor and our favourite animals who are miraculously surviving everything that fucking killed them off in the first place
This is the fifth instalment of the franchise. Fifth. So while you are slaving away and working on your original scripts, a movie about a bunch of pre-historic animals have a fifth movie.
So whatever, enjoy this clip with Simon Pegg in it: Perhaps the only shining light in this movie despite him clearly scooping up the cash.
ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE IS OUT 15th JULY
Every now and then, a movie comes along with that special something. This is not that film. Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is literally the movie you wish will come and go. So we cannot wait for it to scoot away.
Hard-partying brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Efron) place an online ad to find the perfect dates (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) for their sister’s Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys, instead. find themselves outsmarted and out-partied by the uncontrollable duo.
So here are the latest clips from this supposed comedy that will come and go like Dirty Grandpa and the crude, rude, and lewd collection we’ve had lately. I mean, really? Where have all the smarts gone from our comedies?
