Ian McKellan provides narration for Bryan Singer/New Line's "Jack the Giant Slayer" trailer Can't Post


That voice can make anything sound epic! The movie, however, looks pretty terrible IMO. Apparently they've combined the actual Jack the Giant Killer with Jack and the Beanstock, and the result looks quite uninspired...silly humor, Renaissance Fair costumes, video gamey CGI. But we'll see, perhaps it'll be more fun than the trailer suggests.

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Don't think much of the actual trailer, but McKellen makes it much better than it would be otherwise [In reply to] Can't Post

It does look like it has some good actors in it though, Ewan McGregor and Ian McShane for example.
