Nicholas Hoult will be known for more than being Jennifer Lawrence’s boyfriend, judging by a new trailer for his film “Jack the Giant Slayer,” a retelling of the children’s fairy tale classic “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Hoult plays Jack, who is beguiled when a princess, played by Eleanor Tomlinson shows up on his doorstep one rainy night. He’s thirsting for an adventure and so is she. The film has a solid cast including Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor, but these fairy tale reimaginings have a mixed record.

With its title softened from Jack The Giant Killer, it's an adaptation of the classic fairy tale, which is a variation of Jack and The Beanstalk. Both involve giants and a monumental beanstalk and, as you'll see, they haven't skimped on those in the trailer either.
In the role of Jack is Nicholas Hoult, who can be seen in the official image included above (click on it to open a larger version). Nicholas came to Hollywood's attention with his role in the TV series Skins and went on to appear in Clash of the Titans and as Beast in X-Men: First Class, which was produced by Singer and directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Renowned writers Joel and Ethan Coen (The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men) have penned the script, and after we saw four new clips for the film earlier in the week, Momentum have released another new clip, giving us a look at Diaz’s arrival in the UK.
“Private art curator Harry Deane devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.”
Starring alongside the leading trio will be an equally impressive support, »

We have to admit, this looks pretty awesome. New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. just released the first trailer for the upcoming fantasy flick Jack and the Giant Slayer, which shows British thesp Nicholas Hoult gearing up for one heck of an adventure. Jennifer Lawrence's 22-year-old beau plays Jack in the modern (and a lot creepier) Jack and the Beanstalk reboot, when he scales to the top of the tale's infamous beanstalk to take on a bunch of giants and save his princess ladylove (Eleanor Tomlinson). Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGregor also star in the flick, which is set to hit theaters March 1, 2013. »
We got a motion poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! Yay.

Way back in December 2011, we saw the trailer for Jack the Giant Killer, which was scheduled for release in June 2012. Jack fell on tough times since then, with that release date getting canned and the poor farm boy with the magic beans changing occupations from Giant Killer to Giant Slayer. I’m not sure exactly how ‘slayer’ is more politically correct than ‘killer,’ but someone must get paid the big bucks to make nonsensical changes like that.
The very first trailer showed a hint of potential, possibly because we only caught a glimpse of the giants. This time around, the giants definitely make their presence known, and that might not be a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong. The giants look awesome… »

Jack is no longer a killer. He takes the title of “Slayer” in the newly re-named Jack the Giant Slayer starring Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Warwick Davis, Bill Nighy and Eddie Marsan. The movie takes the old Jack and the Beanstalk tale to new heights in this fairy tale re-telling which has Jack storming the castle to preserve a long-standing peace accord between men and giants. Simple farmer Jack (Hoult) bands with a league of knights on an expedition into the giant’s realm to rescue a princess from the giants and an evil prince (Tucci). We got a look at the film with an early trailer released last year, but the new trailer ups the tree-throwing, castle-burning ante.
The CGI-heavy trailer gives us a look at the skull-crushing army of giants and Jack’s knightly sidekicks (McGregor and Marsan) as they embark on their adventure up the beanstalk. »

A vast improvement over the teaser trailer we showed you last December when the film was scheduled for a June 2012 release. I really like the tailor-made cast. »

Jack The Giant Slayer recently underwent a name change (“Giant Killer” sounds too stabby, apparently), and now there’s a new trailer to match, as Nicholas Hoult goes up against the titular monsters. Narrated by the familiar tones of Sir Ian McKellen, the new trailer adopts a suitably epic feel, from the courtly glamour of the king’s castle, to the towering beanstalk itself. And then there are the giants, making their bow alongside a diabolical villain played by a typically flamboyant Stanley Tucci. If nothing else, it...

Originally set for release this summer, Warner Bros. decided to push the film back into Spring 2013, allowing for more time to fine-tune the special effects, and a bigger marketing push, with trailers expected to be attached to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey next month.
With the film’s new release date just a few months away, we’ve now got the brand new trailer to share, courtesy of Apple.

The latest trailer for Jack The Giant Slayer does a grand job at expanding on the plot and tone of the film. Director Bryan Singer retells the tale of Jack And The Beanstalk in true blockbuster style. I’m surprised with the amount of broad humour present in the current trailer, some of which made me chuckle whereas some of it made me groan. I really like the look of the giants, and can’t wait to see some of the epic battles on the big screen.

Lionsgate is sticking with the burning mockingjay imagery to commence their marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Below you will find a motion poster for Catching Fire that is strikingly similar to the motion poster that helped kick off the marketing blitz for The Hunger Games. This one is a bit more complex in its animation because, after all, a revolution is afoot. At least so says the tag line, "Every Revolution Begins With a Spark."
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland. The second of four planned films based on the Suzanne Collins' young adult book series will arrive in theaters on November 22, 2013.
Arriving online today is the second trailer for Bryan Singer’s Jack The Giant Slayer. If you recall, the first trailer popped up almost a year ago but wasn’t received too well. And so, here we have a second look at the film which hopes to change your mind. But does it do the job?
Providing more of a focus on the storyline, Singer’s re-telling of the classic tale still looks pretty mediocre. Admittedly, the visuals are kinda neat and there looks to be promising performances from the usually reliable Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci, but everything else about this just screams problematic.
There seems to be a bit of a mis-balance with the film’s tone as it can’t decide what it wants to be (serious fantasy epic or slapstick-y action adventure) and thus, I can’t decide what to make of it. It looks as »

December 15, 2011. That was the day that the first ever trailer for Bryan Singer's Jack The Giant Killer premiered - but there have been a couple changes since then. For one, the movie is actually titled Jack The Giant Slayer now, but more importantly back then the preview was released in advance of a June 15, 2012 release date that never actually happened. Finally, however, Warner Bros. is getting to show the new action-adventure movie to audiences, a little more than half a year past the original planned date. The film, which has an impressive cast that includes Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, and Ewan McGregor, will be coming to a theater near you on March 1, 2013, and as teased by Singer last week we now have a brand new trailer to show you.
