TRAILER OF THE WEEK

A specific eccentricity, with a sense of adventure and mysticism, is found in the trailer for The BFG. What is The BFG? In the video game series DOOM, BFG stands for Big-F***ing-Gun. You use it to kill demons escaping from hell on the planet Mars. I doubt this will have the same meaning in Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the book by Roald Dahl, but only time will tell.
