Jake the Giant Slayer is fantasy film based on Jack the Giant Killer and Jack and the Bean Stalk, both very well known British fairytales. In Bryan Singer’s adaptation, it tells the story of a simple farmer Jack who has to save a princess after opening a portal into the world of Giants.
Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing Jack (Nicholas Hoult), into the battle of this life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom and its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend… and gets the chance to become a legend himself!
Personally, I haven’t seen the film yet but I really, really want to! It looks incredible. The visual effects alone would have drawn me in, but it also has a great cast.

I have been having a lot of fun playing with the Jack the Giant Slayer App. You get to see amazing visuals and even change the animation with your mouse, play around with the sound effects and even take a quiz on how brave you are!
