Jack The Giant Slayer Will Climb On To DVD And Blu-ray This June

Nicholas Hoult has had two big movie releases in 2013 already. The first was Warm Bodies, a film based on a quietly popular young adult book that made a tidy profit at the box office. The second was Jack the Giant Slayer, 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.

Jack the Giant Slayer is a retelling of the famed fairytale Jack and the Giant Beanstalk that tells the story of a growing beanstalk and a princess trapped atop it. While Hoult is witty and engaging throughout, this isn’t one of Singer’s most entrancing films, and it’s no surprise Jack and the Giant Slayer suffered at the box office because of it. Still if you have been a fan of Singer’s work in the X-Men universe or elsewhere, the film offers enough reasons to show up and give it a watch, and maybe even a purchase.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is giving Jack the Giant Slayer several options for release. The Blu-ray 3D combo pack will be the most extensive offering, and will be available for purchase with a list price of $44.95. Blu-ray combo packs will run more cheaply at $35.99 and DVD copies will cost $28.98. The set does come with a few bonus features, but DVD copies, especially, won’t come with too many extras for fans. Currently, the film is not yet available on Amazon (opens in new tab) for pre-order, but you can check out the full list of extras, below.
