Ewan McGregor, Nicholas Hoult and Ian McShane star in the Jack and the Giant Killer trailer

Fantasy films are tough. For every LORD OF THE RINGS, there’s a thousand IN THE NAME OF THE KING failures. So it’s with cautious optimism that I present the first trailer for Bryan Singer’s JACK AND THE GIANT KILLER. It’s a “fresh” take on the fairytale ‘Jack and The Giant Beanstalk” and centers on a young Prince that accidentally unlocks the gateway between our world and a world of giants. When they take his Princess, he sets out to rescue her, battling the giants along the way. So to be clear; the title refers to Jack as a killer of giants, not necessary “giant” killers.
The film stars Nicholas Hoult (Beast, from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS), Ewan McGregor, Ian McShane, Stanley Tucci, Warwick Davis, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan Bremner and Eddie Marsan. The epic fairytale film hits theaters on June 15th, 2012.
