Bryan Singer's 'Jack the Giant Killer' Gets its First Tree-Tossing, Skull-Stomping Trailer

Bryan Singer has been having a rough time getting directorial projects off the ground since Superman Returns failed to be the franchise re-starter Warner Bros. wanted it to be. His proposed remakes of Logan's Run, Excalibur and Battlestar Galactica all struggled to get a final green light (though the later is apparently still a viable project), but fortunately for Singer fans we finally do have a trailer for a new film from the director of The Usual Suspects and X-Men 1 and 2. It's called Jack the Giant Killer and it's exactly what the title is selling; a new retelling of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk tale. From Apple:

"Jack the Giant Killer" 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, 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.

The titular giant slayer is played by Nicholas Hoult, who was most recently seen as Beast in the Singer-produced X-Men: First Class. The brave princess in question is relative newcomer Eleanor Tomlinson, while the rest of the fantasy-set cast includes Ian McShane, Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor, Warwick Davis, Bill Nighy, Eddie Marsan, Ewen Bremmer, with several of those familiar faces filling in for the titular tall folk up on Jack's chopping block.

Jack the Giant Killer hits theaters June 15th, 2012.
