Having just watched About a Boy again, it’s so strange to see Nicholas Hoult all grown up, saving princesses, and killing giants. A decade ago, the kid couldn’t even carry a tune, and now he’s doing drugs in “Skins” and playing a young Kelsey Grammer in X-Men: First Class.
They grow up so fast, don’t they?
Here’s the trailer for Bryan Singer’s (The Usual Suspects, Superman Returns) Jack the Giant Killer, another fairy tale re-imagining that also features Ewen McGregor, Ian McShane, and someone I’d never heard of as the princess. The trailer doesn’t do much for me, but Christopher McQuarrie penned the screenplay, so I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt.
