The BFG Trailer: Equal Parts Adorable and Absolutely Nightmarish

By

Ah, to be a child again! Young enough to think being snatched up by a giant, weird hand in the middle of the night is the start of a grand adventure, not the start of every therapy session you'll ever have for the rest of your life. Disney's new trailer for the Steven Spielberg-direction The BFG straddles that perfect line of fun and scary, but put some horror music under that sucker, and oh boy! Author Roald Dahl's Big Friendly Giant will be played by British actor Mark Rylance. You might recognize him as Rudolf Abel from this year's Bridge of Spies, a movie about the state of political tension that almost brought destruction to the Western world. No whimsy in our adult terror, thank you very much! We'll just take the scary parts.
