Plot / Synopsis

An ancient war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants.

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.

Unfamiliar with the "Jack the Giant Killer" fairy tale, this one can easily be mistaken as a dark "Jack and the Beanstalk", but further in the video you'll notice that there are more giants and a glimpse of war and these proves that this is not what you first thought of it. It can be a variation of it though.

Yes, another Hollywood film adaptation of a fairy ale and who's complaining, right? If you want to see another fairy tale story we grew with put to film by Hollywood for a more adult audience, then this is just perfect. Some scenes in the trailer show actual actors not blending well with the CGI environment and IO hope this doesn't take anything away from the film experience or hope hey flawlessly blend it while it is on its final production phase. The trailer is a good teaser for he film, providing the mystery of what the giants are like or the conflict between men and giants.
