Bryan Singer Shares Shots Of Jack The Giant Slayer And Teases New Trailer

Jack the Giant Slayer has had a rocky path to theaters. First announced in 2009, production on the re-imagination of the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk was bumped from July of 2010 to spring of 2011. Later, the film's release was moved from the summer of 2012 to spring of 2013, first March 22, 2013 then March 1, 2013. And while Warner Bros. gears up for the feature's long in-the-works debut, the studio also changed its name, from Jack the Giant Killer to Jack the Giant Slayer.

With all these bumps now behind him, the fantasy adventure's director Bryan Singer seems eager to share what he has in the works, and so has taken to Twitter to post some pics from an audio mixing session of the movie's upcoming trailer. Singer joined Twitter back in June, but hasn't been much for actually tweeting. But that changed this month as he began prepping for X-Men: Days of Future Past and promoting Jack the Giant Slayer. You can check out some of his posted pics below:

The film's first trailer hit last December, but according to Singer, audiences attending DreamWorks' Rise of the Guardians and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will both get to see the new trailer in full-effect, and it's safe to assume in 3D. While the first snapshot above is clearly of the feature's hero (About A Boy's Nicholas Hoult all grown up), the second appears to be the first close-up of Jack's gigantic adversary, a photo Singer curiously presents without comment.

Jack the Giant Slayer will finally make it to theaters on March 1, 2013.
