In one of the clips released, Jack worryingly rides a horse and shouts, ‘run… giants….giants’; ahead of him are the Princess, King Brahmwell (Ian McShane) and their army. By the time Brahmwell and his men realise what Jack is yelling, a violent group of giants enter the scene and make their intentions clear: destruct and rule.
Jack the Giant Slayer revolves around an ancient war between the humans and a race of giants which is reignited when Jack, a young farmer in love with the princess, unwittingly opens a gateway between the two worlds. Almost all the clips released show how powerful these giants are and how weak the humans look in front of them.
After taking Princess Isabella in their custody, the giants easily overpower the human kingdom’s army’s leader Elmont (Ewan McGregor) and even have plans to serve him as food, along with some pigs! Perhaps humans are the best sandwich filling for giants.
