Nicholas Hoult Tackles Giants in New ‘Jack the Giant Killer’ Trailer


Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum…we bet you’ve never seen Jack & the Beanstalk quite like this.

The new trailer for Jack the Giant Killer was released yesterday and it’s definitely a different spin on a classic fairytale. The movie 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.

Jack the Giant Killer stars Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Ewan McGregor. It releases June 15, 2012.
