And so the flood of studio goodies continue, as evening brings us the first teaser trailer for Bryan Singer’s big-budget fantasy “Jack the Giant Killer”. Looks like Singer’s really put the epic polish on this one, though I have to say, Nicholas Hoult doesn’t exactly look like the kind of kid I’d want to come save me if I was abducted by killer giants. I mean, I’m sure the kid is a good actor (he was certainly great in “X-Men: First Class”), but I dunno, he looks more like the goofy, funny sidekick than the hero here. Then again, maybe the kid will prove me wrong. Ian McShane is looking awesome in that King bling, though. It’s nice to be king. Anyways, get a load of Jack, some magic beans, and those pesky giants.
“Jack the Giant Killer” tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend–and gets the chance to become a legend himself.
Starring Ewan McGregor, Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Warwick Davis, Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, Ewen Bremner, Eddie Marsan, John Kassir, and Eleanor Tomlinson.
