Teaser for Spielberg’s The BFG Ably Conceals What a Massive Fart Joke the Book Is


I’m not being metaphorical – one of the key plot points of Roald Dahl’s The BFG is that the giants drink a kind of soda called Frobscottle, in which the bubbles go down instead of up…so that rather than burp for fun, giants “whizpop” constantly.

Movie trailers usually love that stuff. Instead, we get Steven Spielberg’s “I wish I had directed Harry Potter, and here’s how I would have done it.” Nice to have a girl protagonist for a change.
