Or at least, he attempts to. Then Ewan McGregor shows up in his shiny armor and sword and totally you-know-what blocks our hero. Uncool, Ewan, real uncool, man.
Check out the first clip from Bryan Singer’s “Jack The Giant Slayer”. It looks somewhat amusing, though any studio suits hoping for a major cash out at the box office when this thing opens early next month is probably barking up the wrong tree. (See what I did there?)
“Jack the Giant Slayer” 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 (Nicholas Hoult) 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 Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Ewan McGregor.
Hoping to slay’em dead at the box office this March 1, 2013.
