A familiar tale gets hardcore in this new trailer for Jack the Giant Killer

This is what Hank McCoy was doing before he joined the X-Men.

No, no it isn't. Actually it's a more hardcore version of Jack and the Beanstalk. When you were little, you probably got the Nick Jr. version-- the one in which the giant didn't actually smell the blood of the englishmen then eat them.

In this trailer for JACK THE GIANT KILLER, Nicholas Hoult has to man up and take on the giant. If all goes well, then he might get to make out with a princess. The film was directed by Bryan Singer and the cast includes Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Ewan McGregor.

Check out the trailer debut and the poster below.

Synopsis: "Jack the Giant Killer" tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittinglyopens 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, 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.

Extra Tidbit: There was also another film version made in 1962. The Rifftrax guys (also of MST3K) put their magic on it.
