The holidays are here and the summer blockbuster season gets off to the biggest of starts on this week’s Talking Pictures. Legendary director Steven Spielberg, and the Oscar winning star of the film, Mark Rylance, talk about The BFG, their latest film together at its London press conference. And London Mums’ resident film critic, Freda Cooper, was there to hear what they had to say.
The film’s under review, alongside the week’s other blockbuster, the latest voyage for the Starship Enterprise, Star Trek Beyond, and Born To Be Blue, the bio-pic of jazz trumpeter, Chet Baker. This week’s new DVDs include Tom Hiddleston (but no Taylor Swift!) in High-Rise and the unlikely combo of Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood in crime comedy, The Trust.
Plus there’s the new top five at the British box office – including a new number one – and the latest movie news headlines. And your essential guide to the movies is packed into just 20 minutes.
