Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum! After watching the newest trailer for Jack the Giant Slayer, this latest retelling of the famous children's fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk may only be suitable for adults given the intense action and seriously scary giants.

In the movie, peace is threatened when Jack the young farmer leads an expedition into the giants' kingdom in hopes of rescuing a kidnapped princess.

Starring Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Eleanor Tomlinson, Bill Nighy and Nicholas Hoult (Jennifer Lawrence's boyfriend), the latest movie trailer is filled with clever jokes, jumping off beanstalks and giant fights.

Unfortunately, the movie's release date has been bumped back to March 1, 2013.
