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.

The giant stone face is an eye-catching visual, one that is sure to have moviegoing audiences glaring at their local multiplex, but does it remind anyone else of a certain famous 90’s Nickelodeon game show?
If this movie is in any way related to Legends of the Hidden Temple, it has my money and the money of those I rob in order to give the movie more money.
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.
