10The BFG (Release Date: July 1)

The BFG (2016) - Ruby Barnhill and Mark Rylance

As a filmmaker, Steven Spielberg operates on a different level than nearly every other director in Hollywood. That's what happens when your films account for some of the most beloved, profitable and influential releases ever to hit the big screen. So the fact that Spielberg hasn't yet made a

film with Disney seems all the more shocking, especially considering the Mouse House's continuing box office domination, thanks to acquired brands like Marvel and Pixar.

The BFG finally brings Disney and Spielberg together for an adaptation of the Roald Dahl novel. Newcomer Ruby Barnhill plays a young girl who is swept up into an adventure amidst giants, and Mark Rylance -- who earned an Oscar for his work in Spielberg's Bridge of Spies -- plays the "big friendly giant" who befriends her. Buzz about the film has been largely positive, indicating that the director may have yet another winner on his hands.

Check out the latest trailer for The BFG.
