'The BFG' Movie Adaptation By Steven Spielberg Stamps In With A 'Gigantic' New Movie Poster

Roald Dahl is one of the most writer of our time. Some of his works have already been adapted to different media -- which may serve as a testament of how good his story telling is... The BFG is no exception as a movie adaptation comes our way. It's official trailer has been previously released, with the poster unveiled just now.

The BFG is directed by Steven Spielberg based on the screenplay by Melissa Mathison, who adapted from the novel of the same title by Roald Dahl. The movie stars Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Bill Hader, and Jemaine Clement.

Please don't stare on the new poster of The BFG movie adaptation.


The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life. Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG, while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler and Fleshlumpeater on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mar, that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

The BFG stamps in to theaters in July 1, 2016.

'Neighbors 2' Returns With A Trailer Featuring Some Steaming Sororities And Fraternities

In Neighbors 2, sororities and fraternities are coming back to the neighborhood and they are bringing the usual dose of dangerous fun and noisy activities that the peaceful neighbors totally abhor. If the first movie focused on the "obnoxious" fraternities... this time it will be the girl time to shine as they represent their sororities. Check out the new poster and trailer of the movie below.

Neighbors 2

Neighbors 2, also known as Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, is directed by returning director Nicholas Stoller. It stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloƫ Grace Moretz, Dave Franco, Kiersey Clemons, Carla Gallo, Ike Barinholtz, Lisa Kudrow, Beanie Feldstein, Cameron Dallas, and Billy Eichner.

Check out the hot trailer of Neighbors 2.


Now that Mac and Kelly Radner have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby and her sisters, Beth and Nora, find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.

Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners—alongside best friends Jimmy and Paula — bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon. If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirty somethings will shutter the Kappas’ home. But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy.

Neighbors 2 will spread the fun in theaters in May 20, 2016.

'A Court Of Mist And Fury' By Sarah J. Maas Gets Official Cover (A Court Of Thorns And Roses Book 2) #ACoMaF

Way back in October 2015 Bloomsbury made a guessing game for the title of the second book of A Court of Thorns and Roses. While everyone else was busy fitting title in the hash tag #ACoMaF I was busy doing a fan-made cover for the said book.

And lo three months after we get to see the official cover of A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and I was delighted enough that it almost looked as I envisioned it. The placement and the color just resonated with the one I made. But I am not saying the art department in Bloomsbury have no originality, because I know for sure that they are not allowed at least to check out fan made covers or even read fan fiction for copyright purposes. I am just happy that the cover turned out the way it's supposed to be.

Check out the cover of A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Look how similar it looks to my fan-made cover....

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (Fan-Made)


The stunning sequel to Sarah J. Maas' New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court--but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms--and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future--and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas will be released on May 3, 2016.

Taylor Swift Turns To Dreamlike Scenarios In New 'Out Of The Woods' Music Video

The recent music video from Taylor Swift is very much like my last nightmare. It is filled with psychological representations of anxieties that I encounter in the last few years of my life. It is as if the song and and music video of Out of the Woods is especially written for me.

Out of the Woods by Taylor Swift

The video is by far, one of her very best! The visuals are so amazing and cinematic, but you are left with a dark feeling that something is creeping to get you or danger is about to happen. In every scenario she is almost always falling... until at the later part where all the gritty and ugly elements of the scenes cleared up and gave way to a calm atmosphere...

Watch the music video of Out of the Woods by Taylor Swift.

Out of the Woods is the sixth official single lifted from Taylor Swift's fifth studio album, 1989 (but it was the first promotional single and was the second to be released from said album). Being the fourth track of 1989, the song is about a relationship she was in "that the number one feeling [she] felt in the whole relationship is anxiety."

The music video was once again directed by Joseph Kahn, whom she had previous collaboration on Blank Space, Bad Blood and Wildest Dreams. The scenes were filmed in the mountainous region of Queenstown, New Zealand and on Bethells Beach.

3 New 'The Jungle Book' Movie Posters From Walt Disney Form A Triptych Banner

The latest live-action adaptation from Walt Disney Studios brings to life a favorite classic -- The Jungle Book. The studio had previously adapted the same into an animated movie, but don't think you've seen it all already. Just see how the main characters differ from the animated version with these new posters.

The Jungle Book is directed by Jon Favreau and stars newcomer Neel Sethi, featuring the voices of Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Giancarlo Esposito and Christopher Walken. The movie claimed that it "seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world."

Check out the new posters of Walt Disney's The Jungle Book.

The Jungle Book


Based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli, a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan, who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera , and the freespirited bear Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa, a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie, who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela.

The Jungle Book will hit cinemas on April 15, 2016.
