New 'Jack The Giant Slayer' Trailer Offers Much More Action (Video)
A new trailer for Jack the Giant Slayer is emphasizing swords over seeds.
A retelling of the classic children's fable, the film Nicholas Hoult's poor farmhand Jack as he unwittingly unlocks the gate to another world and reignites an ancient war. After accidently planting a magical bean capable of creating a bridge of enormous plant-like proportions to a realm filled with revenge-ready giants, Jack volunteers to join the rescue mission for the princess of his kingdom, who is stranded high up the beanstalk thanks to his own carelessness.
In this latest trailer for director Bryan Singer's romp prominently features the angry, oversized ogres and showing new clips of battle sequences once the giants arrive on earth. From flaming trees being catapulted in the air to weapon-wielding menace-giants, the new footage eases away from whimsical comedy and instead, packs on the death defying adventure.
Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor also star.
Jack the Giant Slayer is set to hit theaters on March 1.
