July 2016 in Movies

Summer Movie Season is, no doubt, the best time for movies to be released. There are many reasons for this, but it would take a whole extra post to list all the reasons why. In this post, we will give you an exclusive preview of the best kid-friendly films released in July.

Steven Spielberg reimagines Roald Dahl's classic tale: Ten-year-old Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant (Mark Rylance). Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie's presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler (Bill Hader), Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) and other giants. After traveling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Victoria (Penelope Wilton) to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all.
