New trailer lands for Spielberg's The BFG

The big films are jockeying for position to be this summer's blockbuster, and Disney has fired another shot with the release of the second trailer for the adaptation of Roald Dahl's much-loved classic The BFG.

The new clip shows off much more than December's teaser trailer, with the first appearance of Mark Rylance's eponymous big and friendly giant - as well as those other, rather bigger and less friendly giants, right at the end.

With a script written by Melissa Mathison (E.T.), who sadly passed away last November, and directed by Steven Spielberg, the film will star newcomer Ruby Barhill as the orphan Sophie, as well as Rebecca Hall, Bill Hader, Penelope Wilton and Flight of the Conchords' Jermaine Clement, who will star as a "big, mean, homeless giant".

Take a look above and see what you think.

The BFG will be in cinemas 22 July
