Fee-fi-fo-fum, Bryan Singer knows where giants come from.
Jack the Giant Slayer, director Singer's take on the age-old Jack and the beanstalk fairytale, could have simply presented its larger-than-life antagonists as a bunch of very big men living in a kingdom among the clouds, and left it at that.
But while it may not be fully explored in the film, Singer imagined a whole backstory for his race of mythological creatures, who do battle with Jack (Warm Bodies' Nicholas Hoult), the princess Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) and the princess' bodyguard, Elmont (Ewan McGregor.)
"I saw them, mythologically, as guardians. They were put there like the Tower of Babel to keep people from getting too close to heaven," he says of the giants, who in the film are computer-generated creations based on motion-capture performances.
