Ewan McGregor, Ian McShane & Giants Feature In New ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ Clip
IGN has premiered this new clip from Bryan Singers’ (The Usual Suspects, X-Men 2) upcoming fantasy-adventure flick, ‘Jack the Giant Slayer.’ In the film, Nicholas Hoult plays a farmer who leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom to rescue a kidnapped princess (Eleanor Tomlinson). Bill Nighy, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Ewan McGregor, Eddie Marsan and John Kassir also star. ‘Jack the Giant Killer’ is scheduled for release on March 1st in the US and March 22nd in the UK.
An ancient war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack (Nicholas Hoult), into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom and its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend… and gets the chance to become a legend himself.
