Luckily this doesn’t look like it’s taking itself too seriously otherwise it would look terrible… oh wait, it still does. Anyway, I’m not the target audience, kids are and I’m sure they’ll love it. The CGI looks ropey for the giants themselves but some of the other visuals look nice enough.
The cast includes Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Ewan McGregor and will be released on March 1, 2013.
Synopsis: “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.
