If you're fee-fi-fo-foaming at the mouth for a film about fearsome giants, this is the revisionist fairy tale for you. Directed by Bryan Singer (Superman Returns, X-Men), Jack the Giant Slayer is loosely based on age-old stories like Jack and the Beanstalk and the darker Jack the Giant Killer, which grew up around the legends of King Arthur. The big-budget 3-D extravaganza stars Nicholas Hoult as the titular farmhand who sells his horse for a few magic beans. He's warned not to get them wet—like gremlins—but guess what? Wet happens. The resulting beanstalk provides a gateway between our world and a race of warrior giants who were banished from Earth centuries ago. Ready for a massive battle? Gear up with these »
