Giants Aren't Afraid to Fall in New Jack the Giant Slayer Trailer

"Do these giants have any weaknesses?"
The summer of 2012 would have been a different season at the movies if it weren't for all the studio delays, some of which will finally be released over the next few months. For instance, June would have seen the release of both Jack the Giant Slayer and G.I Joe: Retaliation, both of which are now opening in March. For Jack the Giant Slayer, it meant that it wouldn't have to follow Snow White and the Huntsman — another fairy tale reinvention — something that appealed to director Bryan Singer (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, Superman Returns).
"I got involved with this before the fairy tale craze really kicked in," Singer told Yahoo! UK. "My initial interest was in realising a simple fairytale, the least reality-based one with beanstalks and giants in the sky, and trying to do it in a realistic sort of way."
Whether Singer was successful or not has been slowly revealed throughout Jack's promotional campaign, which has taken its time in releasing footage of the giants hinted at in the title. The latest trailer goes so far as to reveal an entire army of giants and shows off the special effects work of the movie, which was the cause of the delay in the first place.
