Just the other week we reported on the fact that Paramount had unceremoniously yanked their HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS from its March 2012 slot and moved it all the way over to January 2013. This would allow Renner's star to ascend over the course of this year, ensuring a massive opening upon its new release. Said the studio. We were highly sceptical.
Well, turns out that HG:WH isn't the only big-budget fairytale fare to be banished to a release date 'far, far away', with the news that Bryan Singer's JACK THE GIANT KILLER will no longer be with us this June, and we'll now have to wait until March 2013 (!) before we find out whether it will live up to its impressive trailer (and whether Singer can atone for his SUPERMAN RETURNS sins).
Warner Bros. have stayed quiet as to why the change has been made, but as we've said before, this isn't usually a good sign...
JACK THE GIANT KILLER stars Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor. You can watch the trailer HERE.
