Jack The Giant Slayer Synopsis
Jack the Giant Killer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittinglyopens 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, 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.

Mick knew the horrors that awaited him on that ride, but it was Saturday afternoon. He was sick of waiting, sick of looking over his shoulder every time he stepped on any mode of transportation. Besides, there weren’t any kids on this boat. On a weekend at Disneyland, that was practically unheard of. He needed to get it over with now.

Jack The Giant Slayer Will Climb On To DVD And Blu-ray This June Jack The Giant Slayer Will Climb On To DVD And Blu-ray This June
Jack the Giant Slayer is a heavily CGI-d big budget endeavor directed by the famed Bryan Singer that unfortunately barely made its budget back worldwide. It you did miss the epic film in theaters, you’ll be able to catch it when it hits Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on June 18.

Weekend Box Office: Jack the Giant Disappointment Weekend Box Office: Jack the Giant Disappointment
How much cash does it take to bring a massively CG version of the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk to the big screen? Over $200 million. How much cash did it make at the box office weekend? Suffice to say there may have been giant slaying at the center of the movie, but there was no slaying of giant budget costs.

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Jack The Giant Slayer Ticket To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Jack The Giant Slayer Ticket
Every time a remotely expensive fantasy movie comes to theaters, the studios seem to promise that the movie "must" be experienced in the 3D. But we've all been burned enough by crappy 3D transfers and flat scenes to know better. When is a big fantasy movie-- or any 3D movie, really?-- worth the ticket price?

Bryan Singer Reveals His Love Of Motion-Capture And Explains Ewan McGregor's 'Hot' Hair Bryan Singer Reveals His Love Of Motion-Capture And Explains Ewan McGregor's 'Hot' Hair
Shooting a film largely outdoors, with tons of extras and special effects, carries its own challenges, but Singer dove headlong into the motion-capture technology used to create the giants. In fact, he delayed the start of production on the film solely so he could use "simul-cam" technology that allowed him to see the CGI giants in the frame with his human actors

In Jack the Giant Slayer, our hero Jack (Nicholas Hoult) is barely scraping by, living with an uncle who can't stand him and forced to go to the market to sell his beloved horse.

Jack the Giant Slayer has certainly taken its sweet time in coming to theaters. After some director swapping and script revisions, the action-adventure inspired by the fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk" rolled into production in the spring of 2011. While it was initially slated for release in the summer of 2012, Warner Bros. later shuffled it back nine months to March 2013. But perhaps this was all for the best.

He's dropped a pretty suggestive hint when talking about the motion-capture technology used in Jack the Giant Slayer to create the giants. Asked if that's what he's planning to continue into Days of Future Past, he admits, "Yeah, I"ll probably use some of the motion-capture technology for certain things. I don't want to say what for." X-Men, like Jack, will also be shot in native 3D, something Singer used for the first time on this massive fantasy film

Bryan Singer is likely up to his ears in X-Men pre-production, now that he has agreed to take over for Days of Future Past from director Matthew Vaughn. He’s busily broken casting news items over his Twitter feed (follow him, if you don’t already) and should begin filming momentarily.

Jack The Giant Slayer Teases Its Next Pulse-Pounding Trailer Jack The Giant Slayer Teases Its Next Pulse-Pounding Trailer
It's hard to brush aside cynicism long enough for the phrase “teaser for a trailer” to be said without shaking a tight fist at promotional materials that resemble the inner workings of Russian stacking dolls. But when the teaser is for a film that looks as beanstalkingly badass as Jack the Giant Slayer, one forgets what cynicism is

First Jack The Giant Slayer TV Spot Prepares You For Adventure First Jack The Giant Slayer TV Spot Prepares You For Adventure
Jack The Giant Slayer has had an interesting promotional campaign due to the fact that it was originally going to be released in June of 2012. When this was the case Warner Bros. delivered the first feature trailer for he movie in December of 2011, but then the date changed and the movie completely disappeared from radar. Over the last few months the campaign has come back in full force, and you know you're close to the release date when TV spots start rolling in.

Jack The Giant Killer Gets A New Title, Release Moves Up Two Weeks Jack The Giant Killer Gets A New Title, Release Moves Up Two Weeks
Jack The Giant Killer, the new movie from director Bryan Singer, feels like the film that time forgot. You may remember a time last December when Warner Bros. premiered the first trailer for the movie in advance of a June 15, 2012 release date, but obviously that never came to pass. In January the studio pushed the film back all the way to March 22, 2013. It's been a long wait for those who want to see the fairy tale retelling, but today comes good news: it's coming a bit earlier.
