We’re all familiar with the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, but this film takes the story to greater heights (literally). Jack (Nicholas Hoult), a simple peasant is sent by his uncle to barter their horse in exchange for a thatch to repair the roof. However, the young boy only returns with a handful of “magical beans” given to him by a monk. Unimpressed, and most certainly disappointed, Jack’s uncle tosses the beans out the window, which grows into a huge beanstalk towering into the sky overnight. As Jack ventures into the clouds, he soon discovers that giants are more than just mythical creatures. Co-starring Ewan McGregor, Eleanor Tomlinson and Stanley Tucci.
