As our pulses raise on the small matter of X-Men:Days Of Future Past Bryan Singer has small matter of another film coming out long before X-Men arrive with Jack The Giant Slayer and we have a new poster as well as some tv spots to get you into the mood for some giant slaying!
Jack The Giant Slayer is Bryan Singer’s revamp of the classic Jack and The Beanstalk which is now the second outing of the story with the last been the 1962 Jack The Giant Killer. Nicholas Hoult plays the farm boy turn hero who finds himself up against soaring angry giants after he accidently reopens the gateway between the giants and humans reigniting an ancient war forcing him to go on an adventure to rescue the princess.
The new poster gives us the first true look at the scale of the giants Jack will be up against as he goes eyeball to eyeball in the poster against a armoured giant. I’m sitting on the fence on if I really want to see this, after the long delay my enthusiasm has shrunk to see this a bit like G.I Joe Retaliation. However in recent weeks I’ve heard several cast members in interviews for other films where asked about the film and you can really hear that the cast had fun making it even if it looks ridiculously silly film
Jack The Giant Slayer will be released in UK&Ireland March 22nd 2013, the film also stars Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Bill Nighy, Warwick Davies, John Kassar, Ewen Bremner, Ian McShane,Ewan McGregor, Eddie Marsan.
An ancient war 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 and 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.
