Jack The Giant Killer: Trailer for the latest film from the director of X-Men, X2 & The Usual Suspects...

I’ve been waiting a while to get a look at this film. Bryan Singer has taken a lot of heat since his disappointing, very disappointing, Superman Returns; but his body of work stand up well for me.


“"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.”

It’s a far cry from the, ahem, lower budgeted 1962 version some of you may, ahem, fondly remember from rainy afternoons on TV. The biggest concern for this film is the increasingly large fantasy shadow being cast by fellow June opener Snow White & The Huntsman; but that film could also be a big benefit. A successful, fun fantasy film could excite people for more just before this film opens a dew weeks later in June 2012.

See what you think..?

1962 Jack...
