A new trailer for director Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer has been released.  Based on the classic tale, the film tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young boy (Nicholas Hoult) unknowingly opens a gate between the world of humans and the world of giants.  This trailer is much more effective than the previous one, as it does a nice job of teasing the epic scope of the fantasy world while also highlighting some of the pic’s promising humor.  Some of the CG still looks a bit spotty, but the performances from Ewan McGregor and the always reliable Stanley Tucci look particularly promising.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Eleanor Tomlinson, Ian McShane, and Bill Nighy.  Jack the Giant Slayer opens in 3D IMAX on March 1, 2013.

First Trailer and Poster for Bryan Singer’s JACK THE GIANT KILLER

The first trailer for director Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer has gone online. Based on the classic tale, the fantasy pic tells the story of an ancient war that’s reignited when a young boy (Nicholas Hoult) unknowingly opens a gate between the world of the humans and the world of the giants. We don’t see much here, as it plays out very much like a teaser trailer, but I like the feel of it and it sure is nice to see Singer back doing big action set pieces. Ewan McGregor is the epitome of cool, and Hoult seems a fine choice to play the reluctant hero. Overall, I like the tone and the look of everything, but there’s not enough here to gauge whether or not Singer’s got himself a winner. I’m really looking forward to seeing those giants though.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Eleanor Thomas, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, and Bill Nighy. Jack the Giant Killer opens in 3D IMAX on June 15th, 2012.
