Jack the Giant Slayer

I would like to watch the  fantasy—adventure film Jack the Giant Slayer, which is out on DVD &:BLU RAY on 22 July 2013. The  film is based on the fairy tales, “Jack the Giant Killer” and “Jack and the Beanstalk”, directed by Bryan Singer and stars Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor with a screenplay written by Darren Lemke, Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney.

The film takes place in the Kingdom of Cloister and tells the story of Jack, (Hoult) a young farmhand who is fascinated by the legend of Erik, an ancient king who defeated an army of invading giants from a realm in the sky by controlling them with a magical crown. Princess Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) the daughter of the ruling King Brahmwell  (Ian McShane) also becomes fascinated with the same legend.

Ten years later, while Jack is in town selling his horse to support his uncle’s farm, he defends Princees Iasabelle from a group of thugs. Meanwhile, Lord Roderick (Stanley Tucci) gets robbed by a monk and instead of selling the horse Jack finds himself accepting the magic beans which the monk has stolen from Lord Roderick. Once home Jack’s uncle scolds him for being foolish before throwing the beans on the floor. Meanwhile Isabelle finds herself betrothed to Lord Roderick but would rather be free and have fun and quarrels with her father.  so she sneaks out of castle and runs off however it starts raining and she ends up seeking shelter from the rain in Jack’s house. During the rainstorm one of the magic beans germinates and takes root growing into a massive beanstalk at a rather alarming rate carrying the house and Isabelle into the sky. SO Jack, Roderick, and Roderick’s attendant, Wicke, volunteer to join the king’s knights, led by Elmont (Ewan McGregor) and his second in-command, Crawe, and they all set off up the beanstalk to rescue Isabelle.

When they reach the top, they discover the giants’ realm and decide to investigate but soon find themselves in great peril when they get trapped by a giant, who takes everyone prisoner apart from Jack, they then encounter two other giants. So Jack tries to rescue them and learns that the Gians led by the two headed giant Fallon, intend to descend the beanstalk and attack Cloister. so Jack decends the beanstalk, to warn the people of Cloister and Brahmwell orders the beanstalk cut down to avoid an invasion by the giants. However the giants are also using magic beans from their realm to create beanstalks to descend down to Earth and attack Cloister and the castle.
