After unleashing the first trailer back in December of last year, Jack the Giant Slayer has gone through a bevy of changes from release date to the actual changing of its name (it used to be called Jack the Giant Killer until someone apparently decided that the same parents who take their kids to PG-13 rated movies wouldn’t do the same for a movie with “Killer” in the title). With a release date now firmly set for next March, it’s time for Warner Bros.’ marketing department to kick things into gear. Following a new trailer, the first official poster for Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Slayer has been released and you can view it below courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
So there you have it.

Jack the Giant Slayer, which stars Nicholas Hoult as the title character as well as Ian MacShane, Ewan McGregor, and Stanley Tucci, hits theaters everywhere March 1st, 2013.

Some would argue that’s not exactly a difficult task, but never before had perms and manicures been so frightening. The mundane life and home of “homemaker” Carol White (Juliane Moore) is a disease. When White confronts this illness her life, in some ways, […]
