We’ve been hearing an awful lot from Bryan Singer lately, but oddly enough it’s all been about next year’s superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, as opposed to his next film, Jack the Giant Slayer, which is set to arrive in North American cinemas in just a few short weeks. Considering it was shot back in April 2011, it’s possible that Singer has forgotten all about it, so in a last-gasp effort to create some buzz, Warner Bros. has released a brand new theatrical trailer for the fairytale adventure, which you can watch right here…
“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, 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.“
Leading the cast as the eponymous Jack is X-Men: First Class star Nicholas Hoult (who has just been confirmed as signing on for Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt’s upcoming adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’ Birdsong), while other cast members include Eleanor Tomlinson (Alice in Wonderland), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Ewan McGregor (Star Wars).
Jack the Giant Slayer opens in North America on March 1st and arrives in the UK on March 22nd.
