Jack the Giant Slayer is headed your way, possibly a little sooner than you thought, June 18th, and though the film didn’t exactly smash the box office, it’s a fun romp you should check out.
It doesn’t look like there’s going to be a giant list of extras with the film, but that may be a bit deceiving, as the Become a Giant Slayer Interactive Experience seems to contain many elements.
As you may be aware, our podcast review of Jack the Giant Slayer wasn’t exactly a forum for singing the film’s praises, but we were pleasantly surprised, overall, taking it as a family-friendly, popcorn movie, and I know younger audiences are going to enjoy it.
Take a look at all the info below, and mark your calendar.
