Here is the second trailer and updated lowdown for Jack the Giant Slayer.

Your note the film has undergone a slight title adjustment from Jack the Giant Killer to Jack the Giant Slayer and the release date has come forward since our first post almost a year ago.

Judging from this trailer it seems the writers and director have been inventive and had fun with the film that is based on the classic Jack and the Beanstalk tale. UK readers will of course be very familiar with Jack and the Beanstalk as it is one of the main stories used as a basis for Chrsitmas pantomime stage shows.
