"CANNES, France (AP) — Steven Spielberg, a giant in the world of cinema, landed at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday with his gentle Roald Dahl adaptation 'The BFG.' The film, about a young orphan (Ruby Barnhill) taken away by a friendly, big-eared giant (recent Oscar winner Mark Rylance), marks a return for Spielberg to the magical kind of fable he has largely moved away from in recent years. Sitting between his young star and his new favorite actor (Rylance is starring in the director's next two films as well), Spielberg said enchanting fantasies like 'The BFG' are just as vital as more realistic tales. 'The BFG,' which drew warmly respectful reviews in its Cannes premiere, is largely faithful to Dahl's 1982 classic and was made in concert with the Dahl estate. The actor is also to co-star in Spielberg's upcoming sci-fi thriller 'Ready Player One' and will play Pope Pius IX in the director's 'The Kidnapping", www.seattlepi.com

"LOS ANGELES — Thirty four years after landing in the South of France with E.T., Steven Spielberg returns to the Cannes Film Festival with The BFG, based on the Roald Dahl book published in 1982. (Coincidentally, that’s the same year E.T. came out.) But the Disney blockbuster about a big friendly giant (Mark Rylance via a motion capture performance) who befriends a young girl (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) was met with tepid applause at Saturday’s press screening, with some complaining that it didn’t have enough crossover appeal for adults. The BFG opens in the US on July 20.", www.todayonline.com
"Steven Spielber’s knowledge of his past films is a little hit or miss. The longtime director sat down with Ruby Barnhill, the young actress who plays Sophie in Spielberg’s new film The BFG, to play “The BFG – The Big Fact Game” at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. During the game, Barnhill quizzed Spielberg on trivia from classic movies he helmed, like E.T the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, and Jaws, managing to throw off the director from the get-go.
