Fan­tasy In this fan­tasy from direc­tor Bryan Singer (best known for The Usual Sus­pects and the first two X-men movies), Ni­cholas Hoult plays the plucky farm­boy of the ti­tle who, once he scales the fabled beanstalk, em­barks on a quest that is packed with thrills and hu­mour. Join­ing Jack is dash­ing knight Ewan Mcgre­gor, feisty princess Eleanor Tom­lin­son and sly vil­lain Stan­ley Tucci, all of whom en­counter a whole race of sky-dwelling giants at the sum­mit. Bill Nighy sup­plies plenty of grotesque com­edy as the giants’ two-headed leader in what amounts to a thor­oughly en­joy­able yarn for all the fam­ily. Dir: Bryan Singer 2013, 12, 125min
