Jack the Giant Slayer

By DAVID WEINER

June 18, 2013

Fee-fi-fo-fum! The classic Jack and the Beanstalk fable gets a brand-new twist with Bryan Singer (X-Men movies, Superman Returns) at the helm. Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies, About a Boy) takes on the title role as a young farmhand who unwittingly receives some magic beans that open a gateway between his medieval world and a fearsome race of giants in the sky. When the kingdom's adventurous princess (Eleanor Tomlinson) is trapped in the giant's realm, he must team up with the king's men – some noble, some nefarious – to rescue her and thwart a war between worlds. Also starring Ewan MacGregor, Stanley Tucci and Ian McShane.
