SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Warner Bros. has released the teaser trailer for Jack the Giant Killer, the 3D fantasy adventure from director Bryan Singer. If you weren’t sold on the idea of a reimagining of the fairy tale — even with a cast that includes Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor — this teaser may go a long way to convince you. And if you’re a fan of X-Men: First Class actor Nicholas Hoult, it gives you plenty of him, too.
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.
Watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple. Written by Darren Lemke, Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney, Jack the Giant Killer also stars Stanley Tucci and Eleanor Tomlinson. It opens June 15.
