First Full Trailer for Bryan Singer's 'Jack the Giant Killer' Smashes In
Warner Bros has finally debuted a trailer for Bryan Singer's latest fantasy action epic Jack the Giant Killer, a big budget Hollywood retelling of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk story. Nicholas Hoult, last seen as Hank McCoy in X-Men: First Class, stars as Jack, supported by actors Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Warwick Davis, Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, Eleanor Tomlinson and Eddie Marsan. Quite a cast! This looks like the summer because-Game-of-Thrones-is-doing-so-well fantasy holdover until Hobbit hits later in the year. Meaning it looks like a big, fun summer movie, but really not that good. Take a look!
