Release of the film was moved back in post-production to allow more time for special effects and marketing. Jack the Giant Slayer premiered on February 26, , in Hollywood.
It was released theatrically in the United States on March 1, , receiving mixed reviews from critics and was a box office flop.
In the Kingdom of Cloister, Jack , a young farm boy, 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. At the same time, Princess Isabelle becomes fascinated with the same legend. Ten years later, Jack goes into town to sell his horse to support his uncle's farm. There, Jack spots Isabelle and becomes enamored with her after defending her honor from a group of hooligans. Meanwhile, Lord Roderick returns to his study, only to find that a monk has robbed him.
The monk offers Jack some magic beans he stole from Roderick as collateral for Jack's horse. Back at the castle, Isabelle quarrels with her father King Brahmwell as she wants to explore the kingdom, but he wants her to stay and marry Roderick.
Likewise, Jack's uncle scolds him for being foolish before throwing the beans on the floor and leaving the house. Determined to be free, Isabelle sneaks out of the castle and seeks shelter from the rain in Jack's house. As it rains, one of the beans takes root and grows into a massive beanstalk that carries the house and Isabelle into the sky as Jack falls to the ground. Jack, Roderick, and Roderick's attendant Wicke volunteer to join the king's knights, led by Elmont and his second in-command, Crawe, and climb the beanstalk in search of Isabelle.
As they climb, Roderick and Wicke cut the safety rope, intentionally killing some of the knights. At the top, they discover the giants' realm and decide to split into two groups: one with Jack, Elmont, and Crawe, and the other including Roderick and Wicke, but not before Roderick forcibly takes the remaining beans from Jack although Jack manages to save one for himself. Jack's group is trapped by a giant, who takes Elmont and Crawe prisoner while Jack escapes.
Meanwhile, Roderick's group encounters two other giants; one eats Wicke, but before the other can do the same to Roderick, Roderick dons the magical crown. Jack follows the giant to their stronghold, where the two-headed giant leader, Fallon, has killed Crawe.
Jack finds Isabelle and Elmont imprisoned there. As the giants prepare to kill their remaining prisoners, Roderick walks in and enslaves the giants with the crown. He tells the giants they will attack Cloister at dawn and gives them permission to eat Isabelle and Elmont. Jack rescues Isabelle and Elmont as one of the giants prepares to cook Elmont as a pig-in-a-blanket. The trio makes for the beanstalk, where Jack causes the giant guarding the beanstalk to fall off the realm's edge.
Seeing the giant's body, Brahmwell orders the beanstalk cut down to avoid an invasion by the giants. Jack and Isabelle head down the beanstalk, while Elmont stays to confront Roderick. Elmont kills Roderick, but Fallon takes the crown before Elmont can claim it, and Elmont is forced to escape down the beanstalk. Jack, Isabelle, and Elmont all survive the fall after the beanstalk is cut down. As everyone returns home, Jack warns that the giants are using Roderick's beans to create beanstalks to descend down to Earth and attack Cloister.
The giants chase Jack, Isabelle, and Brahmwell into the castle, where Elmont fills the moat with oil and sets it on fire. Fallon falls in the moat and breaks into the castle from below. As the siege continues, Fallon captures Jack and Isabelle, but Jack throws the final bean down Fallon's throat before the giant can eat the princess, causing a beanstalk to rip apart his body. Jack takes the crown and sends the giants back to their realm. Jack and Isabelle marry, and tell the story of the giants to their children.
As time passes, the magic crown is crafted into St Edward's Crown and is secured in the Tower of London. Screenwriter Darren Lemke first proposed the idea of contemporizing the " Jack and the Beanstalk " fairy tale with CGI in before the release of other contemporary films based on fairy tales such as Alice in Wonderland , Red Riding Hood and Snow White and the Huntsman Caruso to direct the script, which was subsequently rewritten by Mark Bomback.
He brought a different structure. It was very much a page-one situation; a different storyline. It involved the same characters, but some we juggled around and switched around. He just brought a very different perspective".
To get the budget back in line, Singer brought in television writer Dan Studney to work on the project. In May , ReelzChannel reported that production of the film would be delayed until February The report cited Singer's interest in being able to pre-visualize scenes with the digital giants in-camera with the live-action actors a la James Cameron 's Avatar and the need for more time to work out the complex process as reasons for the delay.
In October , New Line gave Bryan Singer the green-light to begin pre-production work on Jack the Giant Killer , with production scheduled to begin the following spring. The camera's incredibly compact size and extraordinary resolution are ideal for the 3D format. But more importantly Jack the Giant Killer is my first movie set in a time before electricity. The EPIC's extraordinary exposure latitude will allow me to more effectively explore the use of natural light".
In February , The Hollywood Reporter reported that Stanley Tucci had been cast as the antagonist, the king's advisor who plans on taking over the kingdom, and Bill Nighy and John Kassir were cast as Fallon, the two-headed leader of the giants; Nighy would play the big head and Kassir would play the smaller head. Principal photography began on April 12, , in the British countryside. The same forest is said to have inspired J. Tolkien to write The Hobbit.
About the performance-capture process Singer stated, "It's fascinating It takes you back to play-acting as a kid in your living room because you are running around and having to imagine that you are in Gantua and imagine that there are these weapons and all these giant things.
But there's nothing when you are there other than styrofoam and blocks. It forces the actors to regress to when they would play-act as kids or do minimalist theatre. But in that way it's fascinating - I can see why Robert Zemeckis and James Cameron have started to shoot pictures this way". In January , Warner Bros. She was dethroned by Jack Noir and the Red Team. She became an exile and took the name Banished Quasiroyal. She was then approached by D o c Scratch , who presumably recruited her into the Felt , giving her the identity of Sn o wman.
Named for the pocket 8's slang in poker, as a snowman and the number '8' are similar. Her name is also an ironic reversal of her black complexion as a distinctive feature among the Felt members.
Her number is also appropriate, as the 8-ball is the only black one in the pool. She is the only female member, and one of the three whose name is not printed entirely in green; the " o " is printed in black, making the " o " look like an 8 Ball itself, in the same way D o c Scratch 's name reflects his white complexion and cue-ball theme.
While she lacks the time-manipulation powers of other members of the Felt , killing her would destroy the universe, corresponding to the automatic loss in pool resulting from a player sinking the eight ball before all his or her other balls have been sunk.
As a result, everyone is obligated to cease any gunplay and presumably any other dangerous activity when she's around. The repercussions of this include the end of the trolls' universe, and accounting for half of the Green Sun's power. Named for the scar on his face, as well as the phrase "a stitch in time saves nine" and the fact that he is a tailor. Stitch has the ability to fix temporal entropy which manifests itself as rips and tears in the fabric of L o rd English 's Cairo Overcoat s.
He carries two pins, which are similar to Die 's pins, except that they are white with yellow stripes, which would make them correspond to Stitch. He has an assortment of effigies in his workshop, which correspond to the members of the Felt and after some cajoling, Slick and Droog as well. These effigies display how the person they represent is wounded, and become scorched and black should that person die. They can be used to remotely heal whoever they correspond to by stitching up the cuts in the fabric, or to inflict harm by immolation.
Duplicate effigies also appear to accommodate time duplicates— Eggs and Biscuits have their effigies stored in a separate warehouse to accommodate the many, many copies they create. Stitch was imprisoned by Diamonds Droog , someone who, appropriately enough, could be considered "dressed to the nines".
Droog forced him to build effigies for the Midnight Crew and sew up Slick's injured eye. He attempted to burn the effigy while they were distracted but was killed by Slick.
Oddly enough, an alternate-timeline Stitch was also killed by Slick and stored in the Wrathtub of an alternate Hearts Boxcars. Named after a slang term for US ten-dollar bills ; the "X" shape of the device of the same name used to hold wood to be sawed into smaller pieces corresponds to the Roman numeral X Whenever Sawbuck is wounded, he and his attacker are sent to a random point in the current timeline.
Knocking him out via asphyxiation does not seem to trigger this effect, however it does seem to count the removal of an offensive object as a separate injury to its insertion. Fortunate for himself, Sawbuck's portly build is apparently very hard to severely injure, as Spades states he can only ever seem to inflict flesh-wounds.
If this stems in any way from his ability, there's no firm indication as such; it may just be because of his corpulence. Spades Slick carried an alternate Sawbuck back from another timeline while mucking around with Die 's voodoo doll, before beheading both the original Sawbuck and his duplicate along with an alternate Crowbar with one swing of his rapier wit.
Named for the shape of the number 11, and for a source of fire, which he uses and fights against. The word "matchsticks" also has eleven letters, and the two 'stick'-like digits of his ball number 'match'. Matchsticks is a large Felt member who served as part of the gang's "muscle". He was already deceased by the time the intermission began, although later on he was seen with a fire extinguisher in D o c Scratch 's burning room.
According to Andrew's Formspring , he can travel to any time and place in the timeline by using fire as a gateway. He keeps a fire extinguisher with him so he can put out the fires and prevent any more of him from arriving, unless he wishes to exploit the fire for battle purposes.
A fire alarm in Scratch 's room, and possibly other such fire alarms in the mansion, can be used to summon Matchsticks. He was killed possibly being his sole cause of death in the timeline, with him having been summoned forward in time, never to return in Scratch 's room by Spades Slick. Eggs is a dangerous moron. He can use his egg timer to travel back in time by increments up to one hour. Eggs can thus become a one-man fighting force, with each incarnation a little more damaged than the last.
According to Andrew Hussie , Eggs may branch off into a new timeline each time he goes back, as opposed to staying within the same timeline. Eggs potentially has no limit to how many time clones of himself he can have — this is vexing to friend and foe alike, as this senseless warping creates quite an unstable time loop , leaving his comrades specifically, Stitch to deal with the collateral damage. With his egg timer destroyed by Spades Slick's judicious application of a crowbar, Eggs was left without any time-clone backup and, subsequently had his head bitten off his shoulders by Hearts Boxcars.
Biscuits is another dangerous moron. He believes that his oven allows him to travel forward in time like Eggs ' eggtimer allows him to travel back if he sets the timer and climbs inside.
He believes that when the timer rings and he exits the oven, he will appear in the future the same amount of time later as the timer was set to. Of course, this means he just sits in there waiting for the timer to ring. Tends to team up with Eggs , who takes Biscuits back in time with him by holding the oven with Biscuits in it when he does so. According to Hearts Boxcars , unless Eggs does this, Biscuits is little trouble; in tandem, the Felt's two dangerous morons have by contrast proved troublesome opposition to a wide range of opponents across many universes and timelines, including their own master Caliborn.
The duo's moshing strategy contributed to Jake English 's brief death in Collide. For most of the intermission, he and his companion Eggs , backed by numerous time clones of themselves, were pestering Boxcars. Following the elimination of these time clones and the death of Eggs , Biscuits fled to the "safety" of his oven. He was killed in the future after Clubs Deuce put a time bomb into his oven, and is considered deceased although technically he was alive and hiding uselessly in his oven for some time, until the present caught up to when the bomb went off.
A common theory about Biscuits 's oven is that its oven chamber halts timeflow for those inside it. Although the comic stated officially that the oven didn't have time properties , the very next page seems to hint otherwise. Note that Clubs Deuce appeared to have plenty of time to cart the oven to a safe location to detonate despite setting the bomb's timer for only a few seconds.
This also explains why Biscuits did not flee his oven in a panic after the bomb was introduced being in suspended animation made him unaware of its presence. The fact that Crowbar 's crowbar did not negate this property probably has less to do with a perceived lack of time properties and more to do with the fact that the oven was not destroyed only dented , or perhaps it's because the time properties of the oven are only functional for the interior.
Interestingly, the oven seems to have unlimited space inside. Or, at least, a lot more than it would appear to have when seen from outside. People who walk into the oven may be entering a different dimension. Named for "quatorze", the French word for fourteen. Quarters is an exceedingly tall Felt member it is unclear whether he is in fact the tallest and as such constituted part of the gang's "muscle", but was already deceased by the time the intermission began.
Through time shenanigans, he appears again in D o c Scratch 's room a short time after that of Matchsticks. Quarters was summoned to the scene by Clover flipping a coin which featured the two member's respective pool balls on either side; according to Andrew Hussie's old formspring , Quarters possesses a collection of eight such quarters bearing paired images of all the different pool balls.
If a coin is tossed, the Felt member corresponding with the side that faces up will be summoned from some place in space and time. If the member on the other side is present, the two will switch places and times. If a member tosses their own coin and gets his own number, they will die. Quarters lets Clover keep his coin because Clover is so lucky that he will never get his own number.
Members 1 through 5 share their coin with the member with their own number plus ten. Thus, the double-8 coin has two special traits: it can easily be used to summon the conflict-halting Sn o wman , and letting her toss it is highly inadvisable.
Quarters wields a minigun with an insane amount of bullets, which was used to kill Spades Slick. In the process, he also destroys the model of Skaia in its current form whether this is some kind of weird foreshadowing or not is unclear. However, the killing of Slick is seen as an alternate timeline through Sn o wman 's mind, and she interferes by killing Quarters before he can turn Slick into Swiss cheese.
Quarters ' hat ironically lands on the model. Quarters would be later revived by Slick in the Void, where he would go on to fight Jake English with the majority of the Felt in Collide , notably taking a combined effort from both Jake and Jane to defeat. Cans is an enormous brute and the overall biggest and strongest member of the Felt. Spades Slicks regards Cans as a challenge to kill — he doubts the Midnight Crew brought enough ammo in their raid on Felt Manor to finish the job.
Cans was the last surviving member of the Felt to be revealed in the central timeline, when he made his entrance in a display of prodigious strength Kool-Aid Man style.
He has the ability to literally punch or, rather, "clock" his enemies into next week; when he hits Diamonds Droog , Droog is sent a week into the future, where he finds himself in the middle of grocery shopping. He also manages to clock Hearts Boxcars into a completely different calendar year. Cans is deceased in the final timeline Spades reached after prying open the vault.
He was later resurrected by Spades in the void, and went on to fight In Collide. Cans aimed to fight Jake English , but was intercepted by Arquiusprite and proceeded to fight him across numerous locations in the Alpha session. Cans demonstrated that his powers could simply teleport individuals by knocking them from one panel to the next without any component of time travel.
Eventually Cans fought and was defeated by Jane's Dad. L o rd English is the leader of the Felt , a demon from outside the troll universe and a matured version of the cherub Caliborn after his soul-melding with Arquiusprite and Gamzee. His name, following the Intermission, is always written with an animated pool ball cycle. Named after the pool term ' english ', meaning spin on the cue ball, and retroactively also named after Lord British from Ultima , who could only be killed by glitches and Easter eggs.
English apparently cannot be destroyed by ordinary means, only via exploitation of time-manipulation techniques. English is a hulking giant, easily ten feet tall by comparison with Andrew Hussie, with the green skin, talons and skeletal head of his species. He shares the prostheses of his younger self Caliborn, having flashing rotating pool ball eyes and a golden right pegleg that resembles a pool cue.
The flashing rim around the top of the pegleg also resembles a casino roulette, consolidating his theme as a mobster. The Felt's leader uses a time-travelling artifact, the Cairo Overcoat, which features object duality between his vast technicolor greatcoat and a Terminator-themed sarcophagus.
The coat is representative of the spacetime continuum, indicated by damage that occurs to it when excessive amounts of time shenanigans occur; the Felt also possesses a backup coat with the same qualities. Symbolized by his cue-stick like leg, English is effectively the "cue" of the group, as his is the will which drives forward the gang's affairs, chiefly by using D o c Scratch in order to affect other individuals on his field of play.
Due to the nature of his summoning, English inherits the first guardian properties of D o c Scratch , which in tandem with his time travelling and tremendous physique makes him a formidable opponent.
