Ewan Mcgregor - Fairytales on the Big Screen, Jack the Giant Slayer Trailer Unveiled

It's been three years in the making and has changed form quite a bit in that time, but finally the trailer for Jack the Giant Slayer has been released, and it looks amazing! 

With an incredible array of British stars including Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor and Eleanor Tomlinson (who you may not know yet, but will soon) appearing in the film, the very foundations of the movie already seem promising. Plus, Bryan Singer is directing which is another great sign. He's the man behind X-Men, X2 and X-Men: First Class, so when it comes to heroes and villains he knows what he's doing. Fundamentally a re-envisioning of the classic fairytale, Jack and the Bean Stalk has plenty of those polemical characters, and the giants do look truly grotesque. 

Singer spoke to Total Film earlier this year and said: "It's a very traditional fairytale, probably the most traditional thing I've ever done. But it'll also be a fun twist on the notion of how these tales are told," he said. "There might be some scary moments. The giants do like to eat people. There's a little of that. They're giants, you know? It's what they do!"  

By the looks of the trailer, at best it'll be Stardust, and at worst Snow White and the Huntsmen: the potential is great but it's always risky to mess with the classics. Now we'll just have to wait and see the finish product to give our final verdict. The release date is currently set for March 1st 2013. 

Take a look at the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think:
