See the just-released trailer for Jack the Giant Slayer starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, and Ewan McGregor.
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 (Nicholas Hoult), 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 is directed by Bryan Singer.
The film opens in theaters March 1 and the trailer delivers a nice mix of action and humor. There are some particularly neat shots, such as when Hoult’s character Jack hides underwater as a giant passes over him.
Hoult will next be seen in Summit Entertainment’s Warm Bodies on February 1. The film is based on the zombie novel by Isaac Marion. The book has been well received by readers, and we wrote up a review of the film earlier this month!
