  2. Lucy Dahl recalls real life encounters with the BFGRead the original story w/Photo

    Lucy Dahl insists she lived "a very normal countryside life," growing up in the picturesque English village of Great Missenden , between London and Oxford. If there happened to be a Big Friendly Giant living close by - if, perhaps, he made a nightly habit of visiting her house - well, what of it? Surely there are those who will hear of the giant for the first time because of Steven Spielberg's "The BFG," hitting movie theaters July 1.

As Wise took several test cases to New York's Supreme Court from 2013 through 2015 in an effort to free chimps from captivity through a writ of habeas corpus, a documentary crew followed him.

    The headlines generated by last month's premiere of "The Neon Demon" at Cannes - virtually all of which singled out the film's violence, cannibalism and lesbian necrophilia - were not sufficient to crush all hope that filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn had returned to the mastery he displayed in his breakout film, "Drive." The noirish and violent 2011 drama won Refn the Best Director prize at that year's Cannes Film Festival and got the movie nominated for a Palme d'Or.
