Following in the footsteps of "Snow White and the Huntsman," Hollywood has recast another fairytale as an intense action/thriller/totally awesome movie. Except this time, the jig may not have worked.
A folklore fusion between "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "Jack the Giant Killer" has emerged and it's anything but traditional. The innocuous, magical beans we're familiar with are treated like the stuff of nightmares. "Don't get them wet," a grizzled man warns.
"Jack the Giant Killer" boasts a weighty cast of Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, Ewan McGregor and the adorable Nicholas Hoult plays Jack.
Take a look at the trailer and let us know what you think of this fairytale revamp!
''Jack the Giant Killer'' hits theaters in June 2012.
