Bryan Singer is best known for the X-Men series, Superman Returns, and The Usual Suspects. Now Singer heads into dark fairytale territory with Jack the Giant Killer. It looks to take a ton from Lord of the Rings with mythological creatures, a medieval setting, and lots of big armies. Check out the trailer below.
Jack the Giant Killer looks to follow the original story pretty well. Except there's armies, flaming trees, and a lot more Giants. I'm really excited about the prospects of the movie after reading the story synopsis and watching the trailer. And the cast looks fantastic. Jack the Giant Killer opens June 15 and stars Nicolas Hoult, Ian McShane, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Warwick Davis, Eddie Marsan, and Eleanor Tomlinson.
