The budget for Jack The Giant Slayer was at least $195 million after reshoots ballooned an already monstrous budget and this ended as one of the biggest box office disasters on record. Warner Bros’ New Line division and Legendary co-financed.
Monday, June 18, Warner Bros. Jack the Giant Slayer will be in stores on DVD & Blu-ray. Rated PG-13, this movie unleashes on Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants. They’re striving to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing Jack into the battle of this life to stop them.
When young farmhand Jack (Nicholas Hoult) unwittingly opens a portal between his realm and a race of giants, it rekindles an ancient war. Roaming Earth for the first time in centuries, the fearsome giants seek to reclaim the land they lost long ago. Jack has to face an army of foes that he thought existed only in legend, but through his arduous fight for the kingdom and its people, he may win the love of a brave princess, perhaps becoming a legend himself.
Fighting for a kingdom and its people and the love of a brave princess, Jack comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought were the only legend…and gets the chance to become a legend himself!
Directed by Brian Singer (X-men and Superman Returns) and starring: Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy), Ewan McGregor (Star Wars, Moulin Rouge!), and Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones).
