Ewan McGregor Wages War Against Giants In Two New Jack The Giant Slayer Clips

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.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has reinvigorated audiences' taste for action-laced fairy tales, and the zombie rom-com Warm Bodies re-introduced us all to gawky child star turned hunky heartthrob Nicholas Hoult. The way for Jack the Giant Slayer has been lain, so take a peek at the war in store with the clips below:

This first clip answers the eternal question: Do giants have any weaknesses?

Not only are giants lacking on weaknesses, they also have some serious skills when it comes to wrangling behemoth beanstalks. See them in action, thanks to Yahoo:

In Jack the Giant Slayer, Nicholas Hoult stars as Jack, a young farmer whose humdrum life gets a major jolt once he accidentally opens a doorway to the forgotten world of giants. When his actions threaten the long-time—but tenuous—peace between humans and giants, a war between these massive monsters and mankind begins. And Jack must rise to the challenge, not only to save the day, but also to save an endangered princess. Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, and Eleanor Tomlinson co-star; Bryan Singer directs.

Jack the Giant Slayer opens in the U.S. on March 1st and you can see more from the movie in our Blend Film Database.
