Jack the Giant Slayer
If you think you know the story, you don't know Jack.
I smell the blood of an Englishman...
Although this film is based on the popular Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, it is not really suitable for young kiddies. In this version, the king's daughter goes up the stalk, and the king sends Jack and a few good knights to rescue her. Once the crew get to the top, they discover a tribe of giants with a taste for human meat. The rescuers have their work cut out, made more difficult by Jack falling in love with the princess. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version (recommended).
