Rather than capturing the bones of the performances separately and then merging the human and digital performances in post-production, the filmmakers chose to enlist the support of Weta Digital's Joe Letteri and his talented team of artists to devise an entirely new process that would be as close to live-action shooting as possible. As a result, production was a hybrid style of filmmaking using a blend of live action and performance capture techniques to bring the story's fantastical characters to life, all on real sets that were built specifically for the film.

When the Queen is in residence, the Royal Standard is the flag that should be flying above Buckingham Palace. In this film, it is the Union Flag. This should only fly when the Queen isn't at home. It used to be the case that the Royal Standard should be the only flag above the palace and when the Queen was away, there would be nothing. However, there was an uproar following the death of Princess Diana as Queen Elizabeth II wasn't home so there was no flag to put at half mast. Since then, it's the Royal Standard when she's in, and the Union Flag when she's away. See more »

Well intended, good looking but highly uninvolving movie
Greetings from Lithuania.
"The BFG" (2016) is probably the most weak film of the great Steven Spielberg I've ever seen. It is great looking movie, but only because of a very good special effects. Acting by Mark Rylance was also pretty good and... that is basically all the best i can say about "The BFG". Story which is based on a book I've never read and and will never do is OK - i do believe that story whatever it is can be done into a good / great film - it is not about story, it is about everything else and the most important - script. In case of "The BFG" script isn't good. At all. I kinda lost my interest in this movie since like after first ~20 min. There wasn't anything really interesting, and ye, by saying nothing interesting when you see giants... Directing wasn't good as well i think because movie dragged like hell - it finished it in like ~3,4 days. Acting by Ruby Barnhill was more annoying then anything resembling to a natural performance. And i know i do sound like a hater here but trust me - this is one of the rare cases when you see all money spent on special effects, but there isn't anything good to see.
Overall, "The BFG" is a huge disappointment for me. When i first heard about this movie by Spielberg with the great Mark Rylance i kinda expected it to be a fantastic experience. After seeing it, it kinda hurts that this became Spielberg worst.
