Director Bryan Singer brings a modern twist to the legendary children’s tale Jack and the Beanstalk. Impoverished farm boy Jack (Nicholas Hoult) is forced to sell his horse for magic beans, which sprout a miraculous beanstalk leading to the land of the giants. But as the beanstalk begins its ascent, Princess Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) is catapulted into the giants’ realm. That’s bad news for Jack, as he has to head up to the formidable kingdom to rescue her.
