Originally set for release this summer, Warner Bros. decided to push the film back into Spring 2013, allowing for more time to fine-tune the special effects, and a bigger marketing push, with trailers expected to be attached to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey next month.
With the film’s new release date just a few months away, we’ve now got the brand new trailer to share, courtesy of Apple.
“”Jack the Giant Slayer” tells the story of an ancient war that 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, 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.”
Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, Warm Bodies) takes the lead as the young Jack, joined by an all-star cast, headed up by Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ian McShane, John Kassir, Ewen Bremner, and Eddie Marsan.
Singer is directing from a script written by Dan Studney (Reefer Madness), Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After), and Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects).
Jack the Giant Slayer will be hitting the US on 1st March, 2013, following shortly after in the UK on 22nd March. Get ready for plenty of big-scale action. Here’s the new trailer to give you a taste of what Singer has in store for us. Enjoy.
