Bryan Singer Shares A Giant’s Face And Some X-Men Info

Two shots in the original Jack the Giant Slayer trailer, back when he was a Killer and on schedule for 2012, gave us quite severely obscured or obtuse looks at the face of a giant. Now the film has a 2013 release date and we’re heading for the big, end-of-year family blockbusters, so Bryan Singer has got to work readying a new trailer and tweeted out a couple of snaps of the shots it will contain.

One of them gives us what I think is the best look yet at the film’s giant design, the other shows us Jack again. They’re both something we can look forward to seeing in motion when the trailer lands in the next week or so, as Singer says it will be going out with Rise of the Guardians, as well as The Hobbit.

Looking forward to Singer’s next film, the X-Men sequel Days of Future Past, he’s also been tweeting the odd little bit of info.

  • They location scouted and Montreal was chosen as a location.
  • Singer and Simon Kinberg are working on the script now – though it’s possible, and I’m hopeful, that they’ll have had a lot of work done already by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman. And that it will both be worth keeping and actually kept.
  • Louise Mingenbach, designer on the first X-Men film, is back to do the costumes for this next one. Doesn’t necessarily mean everything will be black leather, though I’m sure some will worry and throw stones.

I can’t say I’m desperately encouraged by Kinberg, and I never really have been, but I do like Singer a great deal and I’m hoping Days of Future Past will live up to its huge potential.

And Jack too. I liked the script, they’re being clever with the cinematography and 3D, and the cast is great. I’m not letting the delays put me off.
