Today’s screening — “Jack the Giant Slayer”

It’s Nicholas Hoult and Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci competing for screen time against these — digital giants, sort of LOTR trolls, The Next Digital Generation.

Impressive enough, but will it work? Jack and the Beanstalk as a big budget March blockbuster?

“Jack the Giant Slayer” certainly suck up all the family business. Bryan Singer isn’t the known quantity, in this corner of the market, that Tim Burton is. But it could be the next big thing. Until “Oz” shows up.
