Recently re-titled Jack the Giant Slayer (“Killer” is sooo strong!), Bryan Singer’s take on Jack and the Beanstalk has just revealed its very first look at the giant himself. Director Bryan Singer released two new images, literally straight from the cutting room floor.
The images are below, and feature both the Giant and also Nicholas Hoult as Jack. First and foremost we have the image of the rather bizarre looking giant: complete with what appears to be an afro on his head and spikes coming out of his shoulders, I guess he is a little disturbing? He his certainly strange to look at, and was not really what I was expecting. It is the weirdness that unsettles me.
The second image is of Nicholas Hoult as Jack, and is doesn’t really show much worthy of talking about. What is more interesting is the editing room these images have come from. Rather cosy, don’t you think?
Directed by Bryan Singer, Darren Lemke wrote the screenplay and Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor, Warwick Davis, Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, Ewen Bremner, Eddie Marsan, John Kassir and Eleanor Tomlinson all star, quite an impressive cast I must say!
The film will be released in UK cinemas March 22nd 2013.
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.
