Dunkirk Trailer


In one of the biggest military disasters in British history, 400,000 soldiers found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk in France in 1940 in the midst of World War II. Their journey was about releasing the allied France from the grip of the Germans, but when they find themselves surrounded by enemy forces, with nowhere left to hide their options become limited. Determined not to surrender to the Nazis, an incredible emergency evacuation begins as bomb after bomb is dropped on the fleeing men. The Royal Air Force and British Navy vessels rush to the aid of their trapped troops, as well as boats from brave civilians, and together they manage to save over 300,000 men from the terrifying attack in Operation Dynamo.

Sorry Guys But Harry Styles Is Not In The First 'Dunkirk' Trailer


Harry Styles Tom Hardy Christopher Nolan Mark Rylance Cillian Murphy

On Friday the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming WWII epic Dunkirk dropped, showing us our first glimpses of the Dark Knight director’s first film since 2014’s Interstellar. But for some, Dunkirk is about something else entirely, because the film features the acting debut of One Direction’s Harry Styles.

As usual when anything vaguely One Direction-y happens, their army of fans were out in force on social media and on Friday they weren’t happy. After being teased with photos of Harry and his new short hair filming scenes from the movie, the heartthrob was nowhere to be found in the just under a minute long trailer.

The BFG Review

Very Good

For his adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic, Steven Spielberg reunited with screenwriter Melissa Mathison, with whom he made E.T. nearly 35 years ago. Another story of an unlikely friendship, this film is even more wondrous and earnest, and also much more reliant on effects. But it's also hugely involving, with a terrific cast and of course a delightful story with a wry sense of humour.

 

It's set in a timeless London, where Sophie (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) lives in an orphanage. One night she spots a stealthy giant (Mark Rylance) prowling the city streets, so he grabs her and takes her back to Giant Country so she can't reveal his secret existence. As she gets to know him, Sophie discovers that he's an outcast in his own community, half the size of the nine giants (including Jemane Clement and Bill Hader) who live around him and bully him mercilessly because he doesn't eat human beans. This has earned him the nickname Big Friendly Giant, which Sophie shortens to BFG as she accompanies him into a colourful parallel world in his job collecting dreams and nightmares. Then when the bullies' threats grow stronger, Sophie comes up with a plan to get help from the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and her staff (Rebecca Hall and Rafe Spall).

The BFG Trailer


Sophie and the other girls at Mrs. Clonkers orphanage share a big sleeping dorm and once the lights go out, the girls are expected to go straight to sleep. No talking and most certainly no getting out of bed but little Sophie isn't one for sticking to the rules. Once the rest of the girls are asleep, Sophie is busy reading her books. 

When the bespectacled young girl hears strange noise coming from outside her window, she can't help but take a peek out of the pane. A vague shape starts to form in the background, Sophie's unsure what it is but knows it's gigantic. Beginning to get scared, Sophie runs back to her bed and hides under her blankets but it's too late, before Sophie knows what's happening she's snatched from her bed and taken to a far and distant world.

Initially scared for her life, Sophie thinks the giant has taken her to have as his next meal but soon she's introduced to her new home and keeper, The BFG (Big Friendly Giant). The BFG doesn't want to hurt Sophie, he wants to protect her. As the pair begin having adventures together, Sophie soon learns that not all giants are as welcoming as The BFG.

Emma Thompson and Mark Rylance and other stars are taking part in an awareness campaign to highlight the dangers of overfishing. Nothing unusual about that, you might think, until you see the photos from the campaign, featuring the celebrities posing nude with fish.

The Fishlove campaign is aimed at persuading diners to choose less well-known fish such as spratt and herring in order to protect cod and bream stocks.

The BFG - Teaser Trailer


Sophie has spent her life alone. She lives in an orphanage full of girls just like her. Each night the girls tell tales of the witching hour when the boogieman comes to visit and children go missing, Sophie's friends believe the witching hour is at midnight but little Sophie doesn't agree, she thinks the hour is much later, at 3am when only Sophie remains awake.

One night, whilst Sophie is reading, she hears an almighty rumble from outside and cannot help but open the window and look to see what's there; what she finds will change the lives of many forever.

The BFG is the much loved Roald Dahl book which was originally published by the author in 1982. The book was later turned into an animated film which featured David Jason as the voice of The BFG.

Steve Spielberg Reveals Personal Connection To U2 Spy Plane Incident, The Focus Of His ‘Bridge Of Spies’


Steven Spielberg Tom Hanks Mark Rylance Austin Stowell

Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Bridge of Spies, is based on the diplomatic relations between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. following the 1960 incident in which an American spy plane was shot down over Russian territory and its pilot, Francis Gary Powers, captured. Spielberg has a connection with the incident, as he revealed in a recent interview.

As it transpires, Spielberg’s father had seen the remains of the captured U2 spy plane whilst on a foreign exchange in Russia. Spielberg’s father, Arnold Spielberg, was an engineer for General Electric which had arranged the exchange in an attempt to improve relations between the U.S. and U.S.S.R.

Bridge Of Spies - He's A Spy Clip


Sometimes the law can get cause problems even for those who wrote them, particularly in the face of war. Thus, when an American spy plane is shot down while covertly photographing Russian bases, the thankfully unharmed pilot is held hostage by the foreign government. He'll only get to go home if America agrees to release their own spy, who's currently serving time in prison. Unfortunately, American law states that they can't just let a Russian spy go free without a proper appeal, and that's where James Donovan comes in. Donovan is a simple New York insurance lawyer not known for high-profile cases, but one thing he is is fair. He's asked to defend the spy and help organise the return of the American pilot, but that becomes a major sacrifice for the lawyer who now faces a struggle against some angry citizens who aren't going to let him forget it if they let the 'traitor' out of jail.
